On Monday, an audio recording was posted to Reddit of Epic Systems President Carl Dvorak discussing the role of the company’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Council with its members.
Epic is a Verona-based medical records company that employs some 10,000 people.
In the recording, which is from last summer, Dvorak says, “It’s OK to have passions, but not here. This isn’t the platform to fight for your social cause.”
Epic’s employees have pointed to the recording as evidence of the company’s lack of commitment to diversity and inclusion.
For more, our Producer Jonah Chester spoke with Natalie Yahr, a reporter with the Cap Times. Yahr just published an expansive investigation into the recording.
