National Public Radio has adopted new measures to improve its workplace culture, following an independent investigation into sex harassment issues stemming from the ouster of a top executive.
The measures include changes in management structure, a diversity committee, and pay audits to assess fairness.
The investigators found, among other things, that staffers often distrusted management, and female staffers felt the workplace culture favored men. Their report, released this week, was prompted by the ouster last year of Michael Oreskes, leader of NPR's newsroom, amid sexual harassment complaints. Oreskes previously was a news executive at the New York Times and The Associated Press.
