Gabrielle Union Says 'More Changes Are Needed' After NBC Releases New Plans to Prevent Workplace Harassment

Gabrielle Union is reacting to NBC’s new workplace harassment prevention plans.

Universal TV and Streaming chairman Mark Lazarus issued a memo to employees on Tuesday (July 7) where he explained that the company is upping it’s efforts to create a safe working environment where employees feel safe to come forward with issues of misconduct, according to Hollywood Reporter.

Shortly after the memo was released, Gabrielle reacted to it, saying that it’s a step in the right direction, but “more changes are needed” to prevent further cases like hers.

Gabrielle appeared as a judge on season 14 of America’s Got Talent. In November 2019, she alleged that there was a racist and “toxic” work culture on set of the show.

“Great start by NBC to recognize the need to not turn away & ignore racial & gender discrimination on programs like #AGT,” Gabrielle tweeted. “More changes are needed however like stopping executives from intimidating talent from sharing their experience of racism in their own workplace investigations.”

Back in June, Gabrielle filed a discrimination complaint against America’s Got Talent producers. In the complaint, Gabrielle accused NBC exec Paul Telegdy of threatening her for speaking out against racism on set. NBC is denying Gabrielle‘s claim.
