To my knowledge, this post was made one day after the first public mention of the incident which occurred in 2017. I want DC to be successful but this needs to be handled better.

And by writing a responsible incident report…all the extra detail is on the behalf of the perpetrator. I don't care if it was at a Bull Fight in Cuba at 4pm, or at 8am in the copy room. I don't care if it was reported 20 minutes later, or at the start of the next fiscal quarter.

This story is out in the open now, so I guess I might as well say that the unnamed employee in the DataCamp post was me.

After *many months* of collective negotiating by the instructor community to demand more transparency & accountability, they still did nothing. Their public announcement is a response to a letter we sent to one day prior, signed by over 100 DataCamp instructors.

Please don't take or pay for my course. The company let its executive off the hook for sexual misconduct. We can't change behavior without incentives, and for companies those incentives are financial.

If you think deserves credit for a public post that they did not discipline an executive for sexual misconduct, consider that they put this code in the HTML, so no search engines would index it. I don't see it anywhere else on their blog.

The latest revelation showing 's slimeball tactics: invite partners and instructors who have expressed concerns about sexual assault to a "conference call" with management, then surprise it's actually a WEBINAR where you don't get to talk!

A significant portion of the community is in an uproar over DataCamp's handling of an exec's 'uninvited physical contact' with an employee. Calls to shun the platform until the company takes more action are increasing.
