This is beyond stupid. All he needs is a pre-canned answer like, "We take this matter very seriously. We're reviewing all of our internal policies and we should have some initiatives to announce very soon."

Any follow up questions, just "We have nothing further at this time."

Dumb.

There's also no excuse for not having something much better in place already.  It's actually not very hard at all to figure out.  There are millions of other businesses that need to be concerned about abuse (eg: look at universities ... many young people mentored by older people who have power over them).

Start simply by appointing an independent ombudsperson who can listen to complaints and act as a sounding board and has written into their contract that they have no obligation to anyone other than those folks who report problems of harassment or discrimination.

It’s honestly hard to imagine a worse answer to this question. If he gave an appropriate answer, which wouldn’t have been challenging to do, literally nobody outside of Chicago would even know about this press conference even happening. This isn’t just Wirtz shooting himself in the foot, it’s also him seeking out the gun to do it with and dismissing the attempts to prevent him from doing it, thus ensuring that everybody that follows the NHL knows about it.

He's a billionaire who thinks he's beyond reproach. Can't say I'm surprise by that.

Gross organization in literally all respects.

A) nice publication time
B) there seems to be a miscommunication or misunderstanding about what systemic means
