Microsoft commissions third-party review of its harassment and discrimination policies

Microsofts board of directors is hiring a law firm to review the companys policies on sexual harassment and discrimination after years of complaints of wrongdoing at the company. The review, which will be conducted by law firm Arent Fox, will include a public transparency report assessing the effectiveness of the companys workplace sexual harassment and gender discrimination policies, training, and related policies.

I embrace this comprehensive review as an opportunity to continue to get better. Heres what Microsoft says its review will address:
