But not to worry. On May 11th the Center for American Progress will host #WomenProgress: People, Power, and Policy. Be there or be – harassed into attending? No square. Be there or be square. I am sure it’ll be a wonderful event. But make sure you have your Tinder ready to go.
Maybe Bill Clinton will be there. You never know. No promises ladies.
This is the current board of CAP
Neera Tanden, President
Hey look, our old billionaire pal Tom Steyer, Mr. San Francisco PC himself sits on the board.
This is why so many people just dismiss the diversity brigades in Washington outright. They are so full of Beltway bull.
Leading liberal think tank, the Center for American Progress (CAP), stands accused of sheltering sexual harassers and operating a toxic culture that made victims fear retaliation for speaking out.
A heavily-reported exposé by Buzzfeed News on Tuesday documented those allegations–made by 19 former and current employees and staffers with the organization.
One former junior staffer, who asked to be identified as Mary, left the organization by sending an exit memo to top CAP officials. This memo detailed sexual harassment she had experienced from a manager on her team named Benton Strong. Mary alleged that Strong’s harassment was well known within CAP’s upper ranks, that they did nothing about it, and that she was retaliated against for reporting the harassment in the first place. Mary’s emailed exit memo reads, in part:
[O]n several occasions, myself and others on the team felt as if reporting had been a mistake and that the retaliation, worsening of already tenuous team dynamics, and treatment by supervisors outweighed the seemingly positive act of reporting sexual harassment in the workplace.
