Wright, and ten other plaintiffs (since expanded to 13), filed an amended lawsuit in New York state court in which they claim that they faced years of racial discrimination at Fox.

Lord also took on the newly created role of chief compliance officer and has been charged with increasing the network's diversity metrics by the end of the year.
Fox Sports executive Jamie Horowitz was fired July 3, apparently the result of a sexual harassment investigation.
A female production staffer told Horowitz had tried to kiss her after suggesting he could get her more work. Shortly after, Fox Business Network host Charles Payne was suspended in another sexual harassment probe; he's denied harassing a female commentator.
But questions remain as to whether the recent changes can transform a work environment into one where sexual harassment, retaliation and racial discrimination — all claims made by employees over the last year — are no longer condoned.
Recent revelations about some employees suggest that the culture, cultivated by late Fox News CEO Roger Ailes, may run deep.
"Rather than treating them as isolated events, companies that experience multiple claims of harassment and discrimination need to approach it as a structural problem," said Joelle Emerson, founder and CEO of Paradigm, a strategy firm that consults with companies on diversity and inclusion.
