Hunt comments on resignation of TNC president, says women in public policy "deserve better"

By Jacqueline Isaacs

The Nature Conservancy (TNC), a conservation advocacy group which reported $1.3 billion in revenues last year, was rocked last week when an internal investigation revealed wide-spread sexual harassment and workplace misconduct.

Politico reported on Friday that the organization's president, Brian McPeek, has resigned just days after other high-level resignations were reported. Sarah Hunt, co-founder and CEO of the Rainey Center, said the following to Politico about the resignations:

"Women working in public policy have overcome significant hurdles to fight for causes they believe in and they deserve better from the leadership of their organizations... The Nature Conservancy will become an even stronger voice for conservation when its female employees are safe, supported, and celebrated.”
