The company that produces "TED Talks" is wrestling with accusations of sexual harassment at its exclusive conferences, The Washington Post reported Friday.
The Post reported that at least five people told TED officials that they were harassed or groped at an April conference in Vancouver.
"We are clearly not doing enough," the nonprofit's general counsel Nishat Ruiter reportedly said in an email to TED's leadership.
TED did not immediately respond to a request for comment from CNBC.
In a statement to the Post, TED acknowledged hearing "from a small number of women attendees" about harassment at the group's flagship conference. As a result, they said, two men were disinvited.
They wrote: "Creating a safe and welcoming environment is critical to the success of our conferences, and we have no tolerance for harassment of any kind. As soon as we heard there were issues at our conference in 2017 we took immediate action to address the specific allegations, then worked with leading experts to upgrade our code of conduct. Today we make the code of conduct extremely clear to all TED conference attendees, and encourage our community to report violations."
