CBS Corporation is distributing $20 million in funds that it will donate to several organizations for the prevention of sexual assault in the workplace.
The donation comes after former CEO of the corporation was removed from his position after allegations of sexual misconduct, according to CBS.
Among recipients of the $20 million donation are the Time’s Up movement aimed at raising awareness of the lack of female representation in the workplace and which sought to punctuate the end to sexual harassment and inequality of women.
Other organizations who will receive parts of the donation will be nonprofits dedicated to pipeline and leadership development; training, education and culture change; and support for victims of sexual harassment. Organizations include Strive International, Catalyst, National Women’s Law Center, Press Forward, RAIIN, and Girls for Gender Equality, among others.
The funds are being removed from former CEO’s exit package, which is now “down” to more than $100 million.
