About speaker

Susan J. Fowler is an American writer and software engineer known for her role in influencing institutional changes in how Uber and Silicon Valley companies treat sexual harassment. Her business celebrity led to book and Hollywood film deals based on her experience. Originally homeschooled in rural Arizona, Fowler studied physics at the University of Pennsylvania. She worked at two technology startup companies before joining Uber in late 2015. In early 2017, her blog post on sexual harassment at the company was widely shared and led to the ousting of the company's CEO. She runs a science book club and wrote a book on microservices. Fowler served as editor-in-chief of a quarterly publication by the payment processing company Stripe, and is currently a technology opinion editor at The New York Times.

About talk

In the era of social media, it often seems like our individual and collective attention spans are too short. But in the past two years, the things that have made the biggest changes in the world are long, personal, and serious stories. In this session, Susan Fowler will discuss the power of telling personal stories in a fast-paced and unattentive world.
