The head of human resources at sportswear giant Adidas has resigned amid a row over the firm's corporate culture and lack of diversity.

 

Karen Parkin is a British citizen who had worked at Adidas for more than 20 years.

 

Her exit follows protests by Adidas staff over a comment she reportedly made at an internal meeting last year.

 

Global brands face increasing pressure to take action over racial equality after the death of George Floyd.

 

In a statement issued by the world’s second largest sportswear maker Ms Parkin said that she had always stood against racism and had “decided to retire and pave the way for change.”
