US advocacy group Time’s Up, which was set up to tackle sexual assault, harassment and inequality in the workplace, has a new boss.

Tina Tchen, the organisation’s new president and CEO, is already known to the music industry, too: since last March she’s been working as chair of the US Recording Academy’s task force for inclusion, having previously worked in the White House as assistant to President Barack Obama; chief of staff to the First Lady Michelle Obama; and executive director of the Council on Women and Girls. In her role as partner at legal firm Buckley LLP, Tchen also co-founded Habit Advisors, a company that delivers ‘Harassment, Acceptance, Bias and Inclusion Training’ (that’s the acronym) for companies.

“Tina knows the power and opportunity of Time’s Up as a valuable ally helping bring this organisation to life early on,” said TV producer, showrunner and author Shonda Rhimes, who co-founded Time’s Up. “Tina’s talent and unique skill set perfectly suit her for this role and time, and will help ensure our continued progress towards meaningful change.”
