A career stepping stone that came at a price | LA Times

Dr. Bernice Ledbetter was quoted in the LA Times article

An October 2017 article in the Los Angeles Times by David Ng covers the Harvey Weinstein sexual misconduct and abuse allegations, as well as the company culture that surrounded his behavior for many years. Dr. Bernice Ledbetter, Practitioner Faculty of Organizational Theory and Management and the Academic Director of the MS in Management and Leadership at the Pepperdine Graziadio Business School is quoted in the article.
Dr. Ledbetter is also the Director of the Pepperdine Center for Women in Leadership, and contributes regularly to the Huffington Post on gender and diversity in the workplace. On the entertainment industry and why Weinstein's behavior was tolerated by so many for so long, she says, "It's a very seductive industry at all levels. It draws people in who are willing to be abused, to work for pennies, for the sake of being there. It's part of the lure and lore of Hollywood."
