Lisa Borders steps down as head of Time’s Up organisation

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lisa Borders said she has resigned as President and CEO of Time’s Up, the gender equality initiative formed last year in response to sexual misconduct allegations in Hollywood.

Borders said in statement yesterday that she is stepping aside “with deep regret” due to family issues. She didn’t elaborate.

Chief Operating Officer Rebecca Goldman will serve as interim CEO while the organisation conducts an executive search.

Borders, former president of the WNBA, was named head of Time’s Up last year.
