Director of People & Culture


TIME’S UP emerged from an international moment of reckoning when women came together and decided to turn their pain into action. We are an organization that insists on safe, fair, and dignified workplaces for women of all kinds by:

  • preventing sexual harassment, abuse, retaliation, and other forms of discrimination before it starts and protecting workers when it happens;
  • removing barriers so women have a fair shot at success and security; and
  • increasing women’s representation and power at every level of every industry — starting with entertainment, advertising, healthcare, and tech.

The ambitions of TIME’S UP are realized by TIME’S UP Now, an independent, nonpartisan, not-for-profit 501(c)(4) charitable organization and the TIME’S UP Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
