Archie Comics Co-CEO Nancy Silberkleit To Speak About Bullying This Sunday

1014nancy_120-1469622489-5721Archie Comics became known in recent years for the lawsuits being filed from one group against the other regarding co-CEO Nancy Silberkleit.

There were the three female employees who launched a lawsuit against Archie execs for "gender discrimination and sexual harassment" and that they were targeted and for working for  Silberkleit.

The suit says the execs "routinely demeaned" Silberkleit, making comments such as, "Nancy should be spending her time shopping," or "Nancy should be out buying shoes."

Silberkleit herself was targeted by a lawsuit for gender discrimination against male employees,

Reports say she has referred to  male employees as "penis" instead of by name. Silberkleit's lawyer responded by saying the case should be thrown out because white males are not a "protected class".

popuphamptoncomiccon2016Well, this Sunday, Archie Comics Co-CEO Nancy Silberkleit is hosting the first Pop-Up ComicCon in her hometown of East Hampton. If any Bleeding Cool readers are in the area, I'd love for you to pop by and report back.

Especially because Silberkleit will be speaking at 3pm as one of the few women CEOs in the comic book industry and on the "unacceptable behavior" of bullying.

Archie Comics, Atomic Comics and Bronx Heroes will also be present at the show, with anti-bullying message comic books.

Silberkleit hopes to host more in the future….
