- To provide an opportunity for Members to lead an open and constructive dialogue with leaders in the Olympic and gymnastic community about ways to move forward while protecting our nation’s athletes.
- In February 2018, the Committee opened an investigation into the U.S. Olympic Committee, USA Gymnastics, and related organizations and individuals following the revelation of sexual abuse of athletes going unreported.
- The investigation focused on process failures, which led to widespread and persistent sexual abuse, and the lack of policies, procedures, and processes, which could lead to future abuses.
