“Ready for a new leadership”

“Ready for a new leadership”

Just over a week after Tina Tchen stepped down as Time’s Up’s CEO, the troubled gender equality group has now seen a large portion of its board resign, voluntarily.

“Time’s Up is ready for new leadership and we want to move forward strongly in its new iteration,” said outgoing board members. Shonda rhime, Eva Longoria, Jurnee Smollett, Christy Haubegger, Hilary Rosen, Michelle Kydd, Katie McGrath, and interim board chair and super attorney Nina Shaw in a statement posted online today.

“We have great confidence in the talent and dedication of our interim CEO Monifa Bandele as a leader,” they added. See the full statement from outgoing Time’s Up board members below.

All outgoing board members resign by their own choice, we listen. However, it should not be forgotten that this latest decision comes as Time’s Up tries to bounce back amid a series of scandals and setbacks.

Board members Ashley Judd, Gabrielle Sulzberger, Colleen DeCourcy and Raffi Freedman-Gurspan will remain on the board for the foreseeable future to “help ensure a smooth transition.”

The full statement:

“TIME’S UP was created to support the goal of safe, fair and dignified work for all women.

“It is crucial for us as a board of directors that the organization remains in the service of this seismic global work to demand justice and disrupt systems that promote discrimination, harassment and abuse. We see the current crisis within TIME’S UP as a major opportunity for growth and the currency.

“TIME’S UP is ready for new leadership and we want to move forward strongly in its new iteration. We have great confidence in the talent and dedication of our interim CEO Monifa Bandele as a leader. As announced, Monifa will oversee an assessment of the organization, working with an outside consultant, and input from our stakeholders: survivors and those working for survivor justice and gender equality in the workplace and beyond.

“To mark the establishment of a new TIME’S UP, the organization will have a new reconstituted board of directors. To that end, the existing board members will be retiring for the next 30 days, giving our CEO the opportunity to refocus leadership appropriate to their mission and needs. In doing so, we are committed to ensuring that TIME’S UP has sufficient financial resources to carry out its important work. Gabrielle Sulzberger: Stay during this time to help ensure a smooth transition.

“TIME’S UP belongs to all women. Their mission must continue, until we live in a world where no woman ever has to say #timesup again. “

Tchen resigned last month as president and CEO of Time’s Up.

“Now is the time for Time’s Up to evolve and move forward because there is so much more work to do for women,” said Tchen, Michelle Obama’s former chief of staff, in a statement on social media. “It is clear that I am not the leader who can achieve this right now.”

His resignation came after nearly two years at the helm of the Hollywood organization.

His leave can be attributed to his involvement with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who resigned following a sexual harassment scandal in which former Time’s Up board chair Roberta Kaplan and Tchen had been mixed up. Kaplan left Time’s Up on August 9, and Cuomo announced on August 10 that he would be resigning.

Deadline reported that several Time’s Up executives believed Tchen should resign or at least step back during an independent investigation after the gender group was affected by a series of systemic scandals. However, the next day, following these virtual meetings with Time’s Up’s global leadership and founding signatories, Tchen insisted that Deadline “is not my intention to step down as Time’s Up’s president and CEO.”
