It has come to our attention that a topic concerning a former PlayHaven employee has generated a passionate online debate.
There are a number of inaccuracies being reported and I would like to take this opportunity to provide some clarity.
PlayHaven had an employee who was identified as making inappropriate comments at PyCon, and as a company that is dedicated to gender equality and values honorable behavior, we conducted a thorough investigation. The result of this investigation led to the unfortunate outcome of having to let this employee go. We value and protect the privacy of our employees, both past and present, and we will not comment on all the factors that contributed to our parting ways.
This employee was not Alex Reid, who is still with the company and a valued employee.
We believe in the importance of discussing sensitive topics such as gender and conduct and we hope to move forward with a civil dialogue based on the facts.
In that spirit, I would personally like to hear your thoughts and concerns.
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will do my best to respond and encourage an active and civil dialogue.
