News from UCLA Anderson School of Management 

“A powerful man is accused of sexual improprieties and removed from his job, pending an investigation. Too often, lost in the unsettling details is what steps, if any, the organization will take to repair its image.

“A working paper by University of Amsterdam’s Seval Gündemir and UCLA Anderson’s Serena Does and Margaret Shih suggests that people tend to view a sexual harassment claim as a symptom of a culture that is hostile to women, not simply as a ‘bad apple’ problem.”
