On Friday, January 8th, GitHub separated with an employee. Later that day and over the weekend, employees raised concerns about the circumstances of the separation. We took these concerns seriously. On Monday, January 11th, we engaged an outside investigator to conduct an independent investigation. On the evening of Friday, January 15th, the investigation revealed significant errors of judgment and procedure. Our head of HR has taken personal accountability and resigned from GitHub yesterday morning, Saturday, January 16th.
In light of these findings, we immediately reversed the decision to separate with the employee and are in communication with his representative.
To the employee we wish to say publicly: we sincerely apologize.
Finally, there are several statements that our CEO Nat Friedman and I shared with our employees on Sunday, January 10th and Monday, January 11th last week, and which we also shared with the press earlier this week, that we wish to repeat again now:
We are, and will continue to be, fiercely committed to providing both our employees and our community with a safe, inclusive, and welcoming environment.
