iHeartMedia has created the position of senior vice president of diversity and inclusion and named Yesenia Bello to the post.
Her job is to help the company “to drive comprehensive long-term and measurable diversity and inclusion strategies” and develop and meet specific diversity and inclusion goals. She’ll report to Michele Laven, chief human resources officer and chief diversity officer.
The job touches on both internal and external relationships. For instance among her tasks is to help identify existing “high-potential talent” and promote internal mobility; but also to work on diversity initiatives with business partners.
She joined the company in 2019 as senior vice president of multicultural sales. She also has worked at Telemundo Network, Hulu’s Latino division and Google. Bello came to the United States from the Dominican Republic at age of 11.
