Academy Board Approves “Standards Of Conduct” For Members: Read The Letter

The Board of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has approved the Standards of Conduct for its members after the sexual harassment scandal involving Harvey Weinstein came into light.

Following bombshell sexual misconduct allegations against Hollywood figures including movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, director James Toback and actor Kevin Spacey, Academy CEO Dawn Hudson emailed members Wednesday evening, informing them of the new "statement of values" members are expected to uphold. There is no place in the Academy for people who abuse their status, power or influence in a manner that violates recognized standards of decency.

"The Academy is categorically opposed to any form of abuse, harassment or discrimination on the basis of gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, disability, age, religion, or nationality", it added. The conduct code emphasizes the importance of "upholding the Academy's values", like inclusion, fostering supporting environments, and "respect for human dignity". The Board of Governors believes that these standards are essential to the Academy's mission and reflective of our values. The group usually moves slowly to enact changes, and only one other member has ever been expelled. "Those procedures will be sent to you in the new year". This comes in the wake of the flood of sexual misconduct allegations that have been plaguing the industry of late.

"Much remains to be done", said Hudson in the letter. The task force, led by board member David Rubin, dedicated "many hours of research and discussion to drafting this document and evaluating future steps", with help from academics and experts in sexual harassment, law, ethics, business and human resources. They also met with the Television Academy and BAFTA and reviewed other codes of conduct from similar organizations.

"If any member is found by the Board of Governors to have violated these standards or to have compromised the integrity of the Academy by their actions, the Board of Governors may take any disciplinary action permitted by the Academy's Bylaws, including suspension or expulsion".
