Amazon adds Starbucks executive Rosalind Brewer to board

Amazon says it has named Starbucks executive Rosalind Brewer to its board, making her the second black woman to sit on the company's board of directors

With Brewer's addition, Amazon's 10-person board now has four women members.

Minority women hold less than 5 percent of board seats in Fortune 500 companies, according to the 2018 Board Diversity Census, released last month by the Alliance for Board Diversity and the consulting firm Deloitte.
