Tim McGuire, the former editor of the Star-Tribune in Minneapolis, has written a smart and compassionate analysis of the case we discussed in class last night. Tim also links to a subsequent blog post by the reporter, Amelia Rayno. Here’s her original story on Teague’s resignation, published before she revealed her own experience with him. That story includes a discussion on video with a colleague about Teague’s departure.
I was especially struck by this paragraph in Tim’s post:
I think this sad circumstance may be one of the most important diversity cases I have seen in years. I have taught ethics and diversity for almost 10 years and I have never seen a case where the duties to all stakeholders are so difficult to navigate. From my experience, gender is not addressed enough in ethical diversity discussions and this case should be carefully examined.
