At least that’s what Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams seems to think.
Today Williams sent out a press release revealing that prosecutors Frank Fina, Marc Costanzo and Pat Blessington, who were involved in the infamous lewd email chains, finally received their sensitivity training last Friday.
It was a one-day session conducted by Legacy Business Cultures President and CEO Paul Meshanko.
“Nobody is perfect all the time,” Meshanko stated. “By working on individual action plans for behavior change, I think your team members have also demonstrated a great deal of personal accountability for owning their own improvement efforts.”
“You have a very strong, capable team,” he concluded. “My professional opinion is that past issues have been effectively dealt with and that everyone is emerging with a greater level of personal awareness and resolve to do better in the future. While keeping in mind the important lessons learned, it’s time to move on and tackle the more pressing issues and work your office is performing for the City of Philadelphia.”
DA Williams was satisfied.
“The training was excellent and I know our entire office benefited from the instruction that was provided,” he said. “Influencing culture in our office starts at the top and I plan to continue this type of training in the future.”
“As it relates to Frank Fina, Mark Constanza and Patrick Blessington, I know that they found this training seminar as instructional and helpful as I did,” finished Williams. “Frank, Mark and Patrick are great prosecutors who clearly made a big mistake. They have learned from their mistakes. This training along with continued reinforcement and supervision will allow us to move the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office forward and do what we do best – work to make the city a safer and more honest place to live, work and raise a family.”
Last Thursday, Katie Colaneri of WHYY reported that the men had yet to receive the designated training because of scheduling issues. Luckily for the men involved, those scheduling issues were resolved a day later.
