Nike’s head of diversity as well as inclusion has left the company, the sportswear retailer told CNBC on Monday, marking the latest executive departure at the company.

Antoine Andrews joined Nike in 2015, according to his LinkedIn profile. He was previously the global diversity as well as inclusion director at Symantec.

His departure comes after recent turnover in Nike’s ranks. Last month, Nike CEO Mark Parker sent a memo to employees regarding inappropriate workplace allegations as well as a subsequent shakeup in Nike’s executive ranks.

The memo said which Nike brand president Trevor Edwards, long viewed as Parker’s successor, would likely be resigning after 25 years with the company. A day later, Jayme Martin, vice president as well as general manager of global categories, was ousted coming from the company.

Andrews’ exit comes as the company will be trying to change its workplace culture. Earlier This specific month, Nike’s human resources chief Monique Matheson sent a memo to employees about how the sportswear giant “has failed to gain traction” in hiring as well as promoting more women as well as minorities to senior-level positions.
