  • Tech firm sued for sexual harassment

    Venture capital is a male-dominated world, but sexual harassment lawsuits are rare. A lawsuit was filed against one firm earlier this month, alleging that executives excluded women from email chains, allowing fewer female junior partners board seats and investment sponsorships compared to male junior partners, allocating women a smaller percentage of profits. Avoiding even the appearance of such gender discrimination is where the human resources function becomes crucial.
