Uber’s CEO immediately expressed outrage and took action following a sexual harassment complaint from a former employee this month. But the incident also highlighted serious failures from human resources.
When Fox News faced a high-profile sexual assault scandal last year, it turned to the Lord for a serious fix. The media giant tapped Kevin Lord as its chief human resources officer to help repair the damage left by Roger Ailes, former chairman of Fox News, The New York Timesreports.
Seeing women make up more than 50% of chief human resource officers in corporate America is a big milestone. This achievement is all the more impressive when considering women trail men in every other C-Suite role and still struggle mightily to increase their overall ranks on the executive level. But some say women’s rise up the HR leadership ladder can be a career dead end.
