[$$] Nike CEO Apologizes for Corporate Culture That Excluded Some Staff

Nike Inc. Chief Executive Mark Parker apologized to employees Thursday for allowing a corporate culture that excluded some staff and failed to take seriously complaints about workplace issues, according to people familiar with the matter. The rare all-staff meeting at the sneaker giant’s headquarters follows weeks of turmoil, including the departures of several senior executives and internal complaints of inappropriate behavior. Mr. Parker spoke in a crowded theater at the Tiger Woods Conference Center on the Beaverton, Ore., campus.
