Starbucks Embraces Diversity & Inclusion in Social Media Ads
On Tuesday, May 29, 2018 Starbucks closed its stores for a “racial bias education day” after a Philadelphia-based employee called the police on two black men — Donte Robinson and Rashon Nelson — who sat in the store for several minutes in April. They were both arrested, prompting backlash from customers. The two men went on to settle with the city for $1 each — with an agreement that local officials would help launch a $200,000 entrepreneurship program for students. Since last year, it seems Starbucks has gone above and beyond to showcase some of its Diversity and Inclusion programs, as well as releasing new multicultural social media ads.
