Coke’s general counsel, Deval Patrick, is the latest to resign. Notably, Patrick is an African-American and was hired after the company agreed to settle a race-discrimination suit. The company is trying to improve the diversity of its workforce.
The head of Coke’s North American unit left recently, as did the chief workforce management professional. The CEO is leaving--and there are others.
There have also been several allegations of ethics violations at Coke, including an allegedly fraudulent marketing test.
