AFTE’s Advisory Board will appoint a fact-finding committee on sexual violations and administrative abuses
The Association for Freedom of Thought and Expression (AFTE) decided that the “Advisory Board of Trustees” will be responsible for appointing and defining the powers of a fact-finding committee on any sexual violations and harassments or administrative abuses within the association or by its current or former employees. The Board of Trustees is hoping that the fact-finding committee will be formed before the end of the week.
The Board has decided temporarily to adopt a policy to confront sexual harassment and discrimination applied by a sister organization; the policy will be in effect as of today. The Board asked the association’s management to start the process of developing a clear internal policy of its own this week, to be completed at an appropriate time. The temporary policy remains in effect until this time, and the management is committed to its enforcement procedures.
