The stories we tell and continue to tell are more than ever I am really grateful for being a platform and a part of starting a business that promotes important and unreported stories and unheard of voices, and I am grateful for the friends and colleagues I have the privilege of working together, and I look forward to watching Refinery29’s ongoing and continuous success. go on. “
Nancy Dubuc, Deputy General Manager for Media, confirmed the news to staff on Thursday in a separate email.
“I want to express my gratitude to Amy for her effort during this time,” Dubuc said. “The focus of work and unwavering energy helped Rafineri29 take it to the next level in the media world. It left behind a brand that is ready to sustain its creative storytelling mission in every way that helps all women see, feel and demand their power in this important cultural moment in history. “
The Emmerich spokesperson refused to comment beyond anything in the email.
The Refinery29 association called for Emmerich to resign in the June 11 letter sent to the Assistant Media management. This letter from CNN Business referred to employee accusations that Emmerich allegedly failed in various ways, from “pursuing racist micro-aggressions to refusing to provide a safe and supportive working environment for staff”. Emmerich did not then respond to his request to comment on the letter.
