Now one of Amazon’s top executives has been put on leave following claims of sexual harassment. The women, a producer at Amazon, felt compelled to share her story following the stories about Harvey Weinstein.
Isa Hackett who is a producer on the show The Man in the High Castle, detailed an incident that occurred with Roy Price, head of Amazon Studios. Isa immediately reported the incident but did not hear about any outcome in the case. Once she spoke out publicly about her story however, Roy was suspended.

We expect people to set high standards for themselves; we encourage people to raise any concerns and we make it a priority to investigate and address them.
