In this Tuesday, Jan. 12, 2016, file photo, Charlie Rose participates in the “CBS This Morning” panel at the CBS 2016 Winter TCA in Pasadena, Calif. The Washington Post says eight women have accused television host Charlie Rose of multiple unwanted sexual advances and inappropriate behavior.

In a letter sent out Wednesday afternoon, Rocky Mountain PBS president Amanda Mountain said the organization will use the termination of Charlie Rose, a longtime TV host accused by eight women of sexual harassment, as an opportunity for dialogue about sexual harassment.

In the letter, Mountain said what appears to be years of harassment was sanctioned by a culture of tolerance. She said Rocky Mountain PBS has a “clear and consistent” policy on sexual harassment. But recent events have led the organization to take a harder look at external operations, whether it’s a vendor or an independent producer, to make sure they understand the organization’s values.

“In this age of attack on the media, it’s so important for public media to take a stand around what it truly means to hold the trust of the public,” Mountain said during a phone call after the letter went out.

Rocky Mountain PBS will be showing Jennifer Newsome’s documentary “The Mask You Live In,” which explores how cultural definitions of masculinity play a role in the proliferation of harassment against women, and hosting discussions afterward. Showings will take place in Grand Junction, Colorado Springs, Durango and Denver.

“As the first female CEO in Rocky Mountain PBS history, I take with the utmost seriousness my obligation to create and reinforce a culture worthy of the trust you place in us,” Mountain wrote in her letter. “One that is built upon respect for all who work here and for all we serve, regardless of gender, geography, political affiliation, or social status.”
