Listen Now: AllVoices
According to Yahoo Finance Claire Schmidt is leaving her job as vice president of the Twentieth Century Fox movie studio. She will now serve as CEO of AllVoices; a company that provides a platform for employees who feel they are victims of harassment, bias or discrimination. All you have to do is log on to the AllVoices website, log your complaint and it will be sent straight to your company’s CEO and board of directors.
Schmidt says the goal is to give companies an idea of what is happening among the rank and file before the story makes headlines. The woman whose blog post about harassment at Uber led to an investigation into the company is an advisor for AllVoices. Investors include a law firm, a former Google executive and the co-founder of Tinder.
Schmidt says she hopes all voices will be one of many solutions to harassment in the workplace. The launch comes as allegations of sexual assault continue to spread from Hollywood to Capitol Hill.
