The big picture: #MeToo has exposed hundreds of high-profile people

Haley Britzky, Axios, July 7, 2018

Axios-Big-Picture-MeToo

More than 400 high-profile executives and employees from across the professional spectrum have been brought down by the #MeToo movement in the last 18 months, Bloomberg reports.

The big picture: While #MeToo isn't dominating headlines the way it was last year, the movement has still been at work behind the scenes. Davia Temin, whose firm Temin & Co. conducted the study cited by Bloomberg, said that while the accusation rate "has been slowing ... the percentage of people being fired has increased."

Hundreds of Business Leaders Face Accusations in #MeToo Movement

NACD Weekend Reader, June 30, 2018

NACD-Weekend-Reader

A new reports finds the #MeToo movement over the last 18 months has opened the door to allegations against 417 high-profile employees and corporate executives, Bloomberg reports. The majority of those individuals are business leaders and executives—410 of them are men—from a wide array of industries, according to the report by crisis consulting firm Temin & Co.

Many of the allegations stem from incidents that happened years ago, but have only recently come to light. And while the rate of accusations has slowed recently, the percentage of individuals fired has increased.

"It started to become a tsunami, certainly after [Harvey] Weinstein, and it sparked other stories in the same industry and then across all industries," said Davia Temin, president and CEO of Temin & Co. "I think it's settled into a new plateau, but it is certainly higher than we've ever had before."

Of the 417 high-profile individuals who were accused of issues related to sexual harassment, racial insensitivity, or other misconduct, 193 were fired, and 122 were either suspended, put on leave, or are having their actions investigated. [...read more]

#MeToo has accused more than 400 prominent execs and employees of sexual misconduct

Jeanette Settembre, Moneyish, June 30, 2018

Moneyish-metoo

The #MeToo movement keeps taking names.

At least 414 high up executives and employees across a number of industries have been accused of sexual misconduct through the #MeToo movement in the past 18 months, according to data from a New York-based crisis consulting firm, as reported by Time. Only seven of the 414 accused are women.

The report found that there has been an uptick in fired employees and managers following the bombshell sexual harassment accusations levied against disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein last October. The number of people being accused of harassment in the workplace has slowed down, but the percentage of those being terminated has gone up.

"It started to become a tsunami, certainly after Weinstein, and it sparked other stories in the same industry and then across all industries," Davia Temin, whose Temin & Co. firm conducted the research, told Time. "I think it's settled into a new plateau, but it is certainly higher than we've ever had before." [...read more]

Temin's #MeToo research - In the media this week

Since the start of the #MeToo movement, Temin and Company has been trying to find some reliable metrics on its national scope, in order to put all of the stories into a broader context for our clients. We couldn't find anything comprehensive. So we decided to compile our own database of all those accused of sexual harassment or associated complaints, since the first Cosby trial.

We included high-profile executives, sports figures, and celebrities across every industry. This database is now rich with information, growing every day, and providing lots of insight.

It appears we're the only ones doing this, and in the past week the media has taken a strong interest, starting with a great story in Bloomberg. We thought you might be interested in seeing the coverage:

Please do let us know if you have any questions or comments. This movement can be a game changer, and this is one way to gauge its pace.

Netflix, Intel ousters show companies are moving fast to tackle exec misconduct

Sarah Toy, MarketWatch, June 27, 2018

MarketWatch 6-27-18 Netflix Intel ousters

Companies act swiftly nowadays. Businesses are finding they must deal quickly and decisively with inappropriate behavior in the workplace in a way they never had to before. What once took months or years to address has been accelerated by the increasing influence of online consumer advocacy groups, the role of social media in people's lives and the #MeToo movement.

"Companies are looking at a new set of best practices," said Davia Temin, chief executive of Temin & Co., a New York-based reputation and crisis-management firm. "The old set would have been to close your eyes, ignore it and hope it goes away or that no one notices," she said.

These new standards are causing some big changes at the top.

At least 416 executives and celebrities have been accused of sexual misconduct since December 2015, according to a data collected by Temin's firm. The majority of Temin's list consists of corporate executives, though it does include celebrities like Bill Cosby and Kevin Spacey. Over the past 18 months, 195 have resigned or have been fired and 118 have been suspended, placed on leave or are facing legal repercussions without permanent removal. [...read more]

#MeToo movement generates 417 harassment charges in companies, says consultancy

Danielle Brant, Folha de S.Paolo, June 27, 2018

Folha-de-S-Paulo-6-27-18-Movimento-MeToo

The #MeToo movement (#EuTambem, in Brazil) generated 417 counts sexual harassment or misconduct against executives and employees of companies, a survey carried out by Temin and Company of New York. The data were collected from news published since December 2015, when the trial of Comedian Bill Cosby for accusations of sexual harassment began.

To be included in the database, the case had to appear at least seven times in the media.

"We wanted to know if the trigger for the charges had been Bill Cosby or, more recently, Harvey Weinstein", says Davia Temin, president of Temin and Company. Weinstein is a film producer who, in October 2017, was accused of harassment and sexual abuse by celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow and Cara Delevigne.

Temin identified the case of Weinstein as the main factor that led to the accusations against executives and employees. [...read more]

#MeToo by the Numbers: 379 High-Profile People Accused Since Harvey Weinstein

Tim Baysinger, TheWrap, June 26, 2018

 The-Wrap-MeToo-by-the-Numbers

A New York-based crisis consulting firm says that the fall of Harvey Weinstein has inspired an 11-fold increase in accusations of sexual misconduct against high-profile people.

Per a database compiled by Temin and Co., since the Oct. 5, 2017 New York Times story detailing decades of misconduct by Weinstein, and an equally devastating New Yorker report just days later, 379 high-profile people have been accused, a staggering increase from the two years prior.

Temin and Co. looked into accusations starting from December 2015, when charges were brought against Bill Cosby for a 2004 sexual attack on former Temple University employee, Andrea Constand. The firm's president and CEO Davia Temin told TheWrap that just 38 high-profile people were accused of sexual misconduct or other similar misdeeds from Dec. 2015 until the Weinstein accusations became public.

But after Weinstein came the #MeToo movement, and a wave of women coming forward to report abuse. "We can see it was not the Cosby issue," Temin said. "It was absolutely Weinstein." [...read more]

A new report finds that the #MeToo movement has so far ousted at least 417 high-profile people. Of that group, 193 were fired or left their jobs; another 122 have been put on leave, suspended or are facing investigations. And—notably—69 people have faced "no repercussions." "The eagle eyes are out for this," said Davia Temin, whose firm Temin and Co. did the research. "Women understand a little better their collective power, and they're using it." [...read more]

#MeToo Snares More Than 400 High-Profile People

Jeff Green, Bloomberg, June 25, 2018

Bloomberg-6-25-Me-Too-Snares-More-Than-400

At least 414 high-profile executives and employees across fields and industries have been outed by the #MeToo Movement in 18 months, according to data collected by a New York-based crisis consulting firm.

The study looked at national news articles that singled out people for sexual harassment or other similar misdeeds, said Davia Temin, whose firm Temin & Co. did the research. Individuals with at least seven separate, national mentions were included. That includes celebrities like Bill Cosby and Louis CK, but the vast majority are corporate executives and business leaders like Intel CEO Brian Krzanich, who resigned late last week after revelations of an affair with an employee.

Uber’s Founder/CEO Got Too Much Deference From the Board, Says Former A.G.

Dan Bigman, Chief Executive, June 25, 2018

Chief-Executive-6-25-18-Ubers-Founder

When boards are in awe of founder CEOs, bad things can happen. Just ask former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.

If Holder was to sum up the board's role in the cultural meltdown at Uber that almost derailed the company, it is that directors gave too much deference to founder/CEO Travis Kalanick. This is something, he says, that boards need to pay particular attention to in an era of superstar founder/CEOs and unicorn valuations.

"It used to be that the board might either tolerate bad behavior, or publicly support a CEO while privately chastising him relentlessly. Regardless, he or she would stay," said Davia Temin. "More recently, however, given the outsized attention to serious CEO misbehavior, boards really have little choice—they must react, and act, quickly and decisively." [...read more]
