The Wing founder and former CEO Audrey Gelman has recently apologized for helping to create an unwelcoming work environment for Black women and women of color. Gelman on Wednesday posted a screenshot on Instagram of an apology email she sent to Flew the Coup, a group of former The Wing employees and members who said they experienced racist and anti-LGBTQIA harm and discrimination at the company. Last June Gelman stepped down from her role as CEO after employees staged a digital walkout. The main goal of the digital walkout was to criticize The Wing for not practicing the intersectional feminism that it often preaches.
