Women’s Group Launches Online Ads Asking NBC News Employees “Have You Been Sexually Harassed at NBC?”

UltraViolet Launches Ad Campaign After Lackluster Internal Investigation At Network 

UltraViolet, a leading national women’s advocacy organization, has launched a series of online ads targeting NBC employees, with a message reading, “Have You Been Sexually Harassed at NBC?” The ad directs users to a website where they can submit their accounts of sexual harassment at NBC. The ads come after the network announced last week that an internal probe into harassment culture at NBC News exonerated management. The ads will run through Friday, May 18th.

Shaunna Thomas, co-founder of UltraViolet explained:

“NBC’s sham internal investigation confirmed what we already knew: The network cares more about shielding its executives and stars than protecting all its employees from abuse. NBC’s toxic culture is not limited to Matt Lauer and Tom Brokaw.

“That is why UltraViolet is reaching out to NBC employees fully expecting to hear more stories about other abusers and their enablers.”

UltraViolet’s story submission page also connects NBC employees to legal services through the TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund. The TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund, which is housed at and administered by the National Women’s Law Center, connects those who experience sexual misconduct including assault, harassment, abuse and related retaliation in the workplace or in trying to advance their careers with legal and public relations assistance.
