If she had been asked to hire her predecessor, Neil Portnow, as a consultant despite allegations that he committed fraud at his previous workplace, would it have been unreasonable of her to complain?

I'm guessing this is nothing more than a bunch of overinflated egos clashing in the night....

Dugan replaced Portnow last May, becoming the first woman to lead the Recording Academy.

Didn't take long for the powder keg to blow. Wonder if this will help or hurt females trying to get top jobs.

Sadly the entertainment industry in California and the US is becoming more and more a joke, time was when it was a leader in creating quality entertainment. The amounts of money paid and spent within the industry are beyond belief and this article shows some of the reasons it is hard now to respect this industry. good coverage in this article, thank you, for it shows a lot of important facts not just the headlines.

It is curious that Ms Dugan never raised these grave allegations until a week after legal claims were made against her personally by a female employee who alleged Ms Dugan had created a 'toxic and intolerable' work environment and engaged in 'abusive and bullying conduct,'

I've mentioned this before on JT. Women leaders, especially from the West, are not the loving angels or "victims" that they make themselves out to be. They often step on others toes, even that of other women.

created a 'toxic and intolerable' work environment and engaged in 'abusive and bullying conduct,

This seems to be a common complaint about western women leaders. That even other women find this intolerable is pretty telling.

Also, as I mentioned before, when a female screws up, they always blame the males. It's even more convenient now to use the men as an excuse for personal failures...thanks to Metoo.
