Be. Accessible Won’t Investigate Damaging Claims Toward Leadership Programme

Be. Accessible will not fully investigate claims of bullying, alcoholism, and scare tactics made by former participants of its leadership programme.

In an official statement; Be. Accessible say they are satisfied that the leadership programme is “of the highest quality” based on what the organisation claims is measured feedback taken on an annual basis.

“These claims remain unsubstantiated to date as we have not received the feedback directly to allow a full investigation to occur”, Be Accessible general manger Megan Barclay said in the statement.

Instead, the leadership programme handbook and interview procedure will change to provide further clarity around expectations for participants, including financial.

“Based on the recent feedback we have updated the Leadership Programme handbook and our interview procedure to provide clear expectations to applicants and prospective participants around what to expect across every aspect of the programme, including funding.”

Participants of the leadership programme are encouraged to write to Be. Accessible with feedback.

“We all have a responsibility to starve of oxygen people who hide behind blogs and social media in an attempt to vent their anger, envy, and narcissism”, Patston wrote.

More to come.
