DETROIT (WXYZ) — The Board of Directors of the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit terminated its executive director after allegations of a toxic workplace.
Effective immediately, Elysia Borowy-Reeder was dismissed after an internal investigation.
The board says the investigation was prompted by the submission of a letter by MOCAD Resistance, a community group of artists, art workers and community members, that outlined a climate under Borowy-Reeder's leadership.
"Her leadership fell short of its goals for diversity, inclusivity and a healthy work environment, as determined by an independent investigation," the board said in a press release.
"We have tried to deliver on diversity, equity and inclusion since our inception. However, it is clear we need to do more, better and faster."
