UPDATE: In a statement released Thursday night, Time’s Up said that its former president and CEO, Lisa Borders, resigned earlier this week after sexual assault allegations were made against her son.

“Time’s Up unequivocally supports all survivors of sexual harassment and abuse,” the organization said. “On Friday, Lisa Borders informed members of Time’s Up leadership that sexual assault allegations had been made against her son in a private forum. Within 24 hours, Lisa made the decision to resign as president and CEO of Time’s Up and we agreed that it was the right decision for all parties involved. All of our actions were fully guided by our support for survivors.”

The statement continued, “We respect the rights of all survivors to own their own stories. We strongly encourage anyone who has experienced sexual harassment, assault or related retaliation in the workplace or in trying to advance their careers to contact the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund for assistance. We remain committed to our mission to create, safe and dignified work for women of all kinds.”

EARLIER: Lisa Borders has resigned as the president and CEO of Time’s Up, the female-led initiative to fight harassment in Hollywood and beyond, after less than six months on the job, the organization announced Monday.

Borders, the former WNBA president and Coca-Cola executive who joined Time’s Up in October, cited family issues as the reason for her resignation.

“As Time’s Up continues to grow, I am proud of the work I have done to shepherd its continued development,” Borders, 61, said in a statement. “Unfortunately, it is with deep regret that I must resign from Time’s Up to address family concerns that require my singular focus. I appreciate the opportunity to support this mission and I hope my efforts will continue to resonate.”

“We know that it is the right decision for Lisa as well as the organization,” Time’s Up said in a statement, noting that its chief operating officer, Rebecca Goldman, will serve as interim CEO.

Time’s Up launched Jan. 1, 2018, in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal and a reckoning with sexual misconduct and abuse that has rippled throughout Hollywood and other industries. The initiative is backed by many of Hollywood’s biggest names, including Reese Witherspoon, Natalie Portman, Kerry Washington, Shonda Rhimes, Eva Longoria, and Ashley Judd.

In its statement Monday, Time’s Up added, “We remain steadfast in our mission to create safe, fair, and dignified work for women of all kinds.”
