While Nike believes it has a set of human resources procedures installed, those systems “have not worked consistently,” Mr. Wilkins said. “As Mark has said, we Nike Air Vapormax Femme are currently reviewing and improving our practices to re-establish trust where it has been lacking and Nike Free Run 3.0 Femmeto guard against this happening in the future.”Nike’s goals would have been hard to achieve even before the recent departure of high-level executives. In October 2015, Mr. Parker announced an ambitious target: By 2020, Nike would reach $50 billion in annual revenues. But last fall the company pushed the target Nike Air Huarache Femme date to 2022.Nike Air Max Tavas Womens And while Nike’s stock has climbed 25 percent in the past year, its revenues for the first nine months of its current fiscal year grew by only 4 percent, with North American sales dipping in crucial areas, like footwear.In women’s products, Nike “is growing in the low single digits, which means it is a long way away from where it wants to be,” said Matt Powell, a sports industry analyst at the NPD Group. Companies like Lululemon and even Old Navy are finding greater success in the women’s sportswear market, Mr. Powell said.For now, Mr. Edwards’s duties have been split between two other executives. Nike recently  named a woman, Kellie Leonard, as chief diversity and inclusion officer, and Mr. Wilkins said Nike is focused “on attracting, developing and elevating both women and people of color throughout the organization.’’

It   now falls to Mr. Parker, 62, to move Nike forward. A quiet executive who designed several of Nike’s running shoes, Mr. Parker has been the company’s chief executive since 2006. He appeared to solidify his control over the company’s operations around 2015 when Nike’s co-founder Phil Knight stepped down as company chairman.But given the recent tumult at Nike, Mr. Parker may face tough questions himself. At least a dozen current and former employees told The Times they could not see how Mr. Parker was not aware of the problems with his top leaders. What is unclear, some said, is whether information was deliberately kept from Mr. Parker.As he did with other executives who reported directly to him, Mr. Parker met regularly with Mr. Ayre when he was the head of human resources to discuss, among other things, any active   investigations Nike Air Max Classic BW Donne of suspected Nike Air Max 1 Femme employee misconduct, Mr. Wilkins said.When appropriate, he said, action was taken. But with 74,000 employees, Mr. Wilkins said, “Mark would not have been aware of all issues.”That explanation did not satisfy Ms. Shebiel, the former employee who left in September.

If Mr. Parker did not know, she said, “it negates the times over the years my peers and I sought support and counsel from the people  we were told we could trust to bring about change.”Ms. Shebiel said she and her colleagues risked or experienced retaliation “for shining a light on both significant and everyday experiences that left us feeling bullied, uncomfortable and intimidated.”Mr. Ayre did not return phone and email messages seeking comment.Complaints were sometimes handled casually. The employee whose supervisor tried to kiss her in the bathroom Nike Air Max 270 Womens set up a meeting with human resources to discuss it, Adidas Superstar Donne Rosa and was taken aback when she was told to meet her representative in the Mia Hamm cafe — a public space on Nike’s sprawling campus.Amber Amin said her manager routinely belittled her with sexist and dismissive comments but still worried about what would happen if she reported him.“I think his general attitude toward women was just, subtly, that we were less Nike Air Presto Womens capable,” said Ms. Amin, a junior designer on one of the Nike apps, who added that she had received positive performance reviews since becoming an employee in 2014.She eventually sought help from human resources, which told her that corrective action would be taken.
