The Power of a Story with Susan Fowler

Fowler is a technology editor for The New York Times op-ed section, but her presentation focused on her time as a former software engineer at Uber, during which she became a whistleblower on the struggles of women at the company with sexual harassment and discrimination. Her February 2017 online essay on that subject led to major organizational changes at Uber and was seen as a reckoning for Silicon Valley's "tech bro" culture.
