Condé Nast International Releases Official Statement on Terry Richardson

  • "CONDÉ NAST is deeply concerned by the recently surfaced allegations of sexual harassment in our industry. There are no excuses for this type of behaviour; it is completely unacceptable. The company expects all employees, freelance contributors and others that Condé Nast retains to act appropriately and with the utmost personal and professional respect for each other, when working on behalf of the company and its brands, advertisers, and clients.

    All employees, freelancers and independent contractors must understand the company’s expectations of appropriate behaviour and treatment of others. Condé Nast also expects the agencies that represent hired talent to develop, circulate and reinforce with their clients what is and is not acceptable behaviour in interacting with others, with particular emphasis on protecting people who are in vulnerable positions in their professional relationships.

    Condé Nast is committed to working with our colleagues and partners to help find solutions to the problem of all types of harassment in our industry. The company calls upon other like-minded publishers, relevant trade organisations and talent representatives to join us in this effort. To that end, we will be reaching out to the major agencies with whom the company does business to put such a program in motion."
