For Over 10 Years, Dr. Ellis Monk Studied Skin Tone And Colorism Impacts — Now, Google's Introduced His New Scale

People of color are oftentimes not considered as new technology emerges. However, Google is working to change this narrative with the help of Dr. Ellis Monk. The Harvard professor and sociologist has spent over a decade conducting research centered on skin tone and the effects of colorism in society. In partnership with Dr. Ellis Monk, we’re releasing a new skin tone scale designed to be more inclusive of the full spectrum of skin tones — the next step in our commitment to image equity and improving representation across our products. #GoogleIO — Google (@Google) May 11, 2022
