Chemours director resigns over 'woke culture'
Sen. Tom Cotton grilled CEOs on “woke” policies during a hearing on a potential merger between the Kroger and Albertsons grocery chains
Sen. Ton Cotton, R-Arkansas, noted the irony of companies that he said discriminate against conservatives that run to the GOP to protect them from regulation.
A member of the Chemours board of directors resigned and criticized the chemical company for wanting to make a "woke" cultural statement by including abortion coverage and gender transitioning procedures in its benefits plan for employees.
The resignation of Bradley Bell was initially reported by Chemours as being for "personal reasons" and CFO Sameer Ralhan said Chemours "is grateful for Mr. Bell's leadership and dedicated service as well as the contributions he has made to the company." An updated filing from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on Tuesday revealed the depth of Bell's angst over the company's abortion coverage.
Bell chairs a nonprofit called Pregnancy Resource Center of Southwest Florida (formerly Life Choice Crisis Pregnancy Center), a network of pregnancy clinics and education centers that exist to prevent abortion.
Bell informed Chemours Board Chair Dawn Farrell and CEO Mark Newman of his resignation effective January 2, 2023, in a letter dated December 21st. Bell wrote, "While I do not believe it is the board’s role to design employee benefit plans, I strongly believe the board has a major role in setting the moral tone and direction for Chemours overall."
