“The latest allegations of sexual assault against Matt Lauer are deeply troubling,” said Time's Up in a statement that refers to the three women, including Brooke Nevils, who went on the record for the first time with allegations against Lauer in Ronan Farrow's new book Catch and Kill. "We commend NBC for taking an important step by firing Matt Lauer after Brooke reported the assault to HR, but that must only be the start: Real progress happens when corporations like NBC make a transparent and continuous commitment to creating and nurturing a culture of safety and equity, which often involves long-term structural change across all levels," Time's Up said in a statement. "Instead, NBC’s latest statements fail to demonstrate a commitment to such change and fail to support the victims who take the courageous step to come forward. NBC’s 2018 investigation revealed a number of areas where NBC should work to improve its culture. We ask NBC to be transparent about the steps it has taken, and the steps it will continue to take, to establish the inclusive, fair, and equitable workplace culture that every employee of NBC deserves."
