Microsoft CEO Makes New Diversity Push After Women Gaffe

Microsoft Corp. Chief Executive Officer Satya Nadella is driving a new initiative to promote companywide diversity and equal pay a week after he made a public gaffe on advising women on getting a pay raise.

In an internal memo to staff Oct. 15, he apologized again for the comment at a conference in Phoenix and said the company needed to improve its staffing in three areas: by ensuring equal pay, recruiting more diverse talent and by training employees to make diversity prevalent.
