Suit: Supervisor at conservation group's Minnesota chapter altered photos of co-workers to appear sexual

Five women are suing The Nature Conservancy and a former associate director of the Minneapolis-based regional chapter alleging that he altered photos of them while on work assignments to make them sexual in nature, then posted them on social media.

The lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court last week alleges years of sexual harassment and discrimination by Douglas Shaw while he worked for the global environmental nonprofit. It seeks an unspecified monetary amount for emotional distress, damage to reputations, punitive damages, lost wages and expenses related to the legal action.

Christopher Anderson, regional marketing director for The Nature Conservancy (TNC), said in a statement that "as soon as we became aware of his actions, we terminated him within 24 hours. ... Mr. Shaw violated our code of conduct."
