'One Less Minority' At Village Voice

march 6, 2007  01:41 pm
The day after last week's staff meeting at which concerns about newsroom diversity were raised, Village Voice Media laid off minority writer Corina Zappia, according to the Huffington Post. Zappia, who worked for the internet division, says she hadn't had a negative performance review nor been given any sort of warning. She also notes that although she had spoken up at last week's staff meeting, there was no connection between that and her dismissal. The Huffington Post reports that a HR complaint relating to Zappia's discharge remains unresolved.
