Github founder Resigns following Sexual Harrasment Accusation

Today, GitHub concluded its investigation regarding sexual harassment within its work force, and although it found no evidence of 'legal wrongdoing',GitHub president Tom Preston-Werner has resigned from the company saying that his presence there would be "a distraction for both me and the company".

Developer Julie Horvath left GitHub claiming harassment — an independent investigation subsequently cleared Preston-Werner.
In its statement, GitHub vows to implement 'a number of new HR and employee-led initiatives as well as training opportunities to make sure employee concerns and conflicts are taken seriously and dealt with appropriately'. Julie Ann Horvath, the former GitHub employee whose public resignation last month inspired the sexual harassment investigation, found the company's findings to be gratuitous and just plain wrong.
