Chris Wanstrath, CEO of GitHub:

I would like to personally apologize to Julie. It’s certain that there were things we could have done differently.

It’s a short, and to the point post on the matter. It’s not filled with marketing doublespeak (mostly) and it feels written by one person.

That’s about as good as a corporate response can get. I’m not saying they are off the hook, I’m just impressed by the non-bullshit response which boils down to:

  1. We are investigating.
  2. All people accused have been put on leave, and the one non-employee has been banned from the offices.
  3. We are working to get better in spite of lots of growth (this was the only annoying section).
  4. I’m sorry, and I wish her well.
