Lisa Borders, CEO of Time & # 39; s Up, stepped down from his position this week after following sexual assault on her son, the equality group announced on Thursday.
Borders originally cited "family concerns that require my unambiguous focus" when she resigned.
"TIME & UP" unequivocally supports all survivors of sexual harassment and abuse, "the organization said in a statement. "On Friday, Lisa Borders informed members of the TIME & # 39; s UP management that sexual assault on her son had occurred in a private forum. Within 24 hours, Lisa decided to resign as President and CEO of TIME & S UP and we agreed that it was the right decision for all parties involved. "

The organization was founded by female celebrities in response to the #MeToo movement. The group focuses on gender parity and workplace safety for women. Borders did not respond to a Los Angeles Times comment request.
Her departure comes after a woman alleged in a post on a private Facebook group that her son, Garry "Dijon" Bowden Jr., had been sexually inappropriate with her during a healing massage session. Celia Gellert, 31, told the Times that she felt offended when Bowden allegedly kissed her neck, touched her genitals, and rubbed his clothes on her. She went public with her experience on Facebook "because I don't want it to happen to anyone else," she said.
Bowen's lawyer Alan Jackson denied allegations against his client.

"My client strongly denies the occurrence of inappropriate or inappropriate touch at any time," Jackson said to the paper.
Borders was employed by Time & # 39; s Up in October with much fanfare. She previously served as WNBA's president and vice president of Coca-Cola.
