“Enter Susan Fowler. She’s a software engineer who also writes prose with great clarity. On Feb. 19, 2017, she posted a blockbuster account about what she had seen and experienced during a year at Uber. Through her blog, the world learned about a workplace culture that was grotesquely hostile to women, and an HR bureaucracy that investigated nothing.
"Journalists woke up, big time. Today, you can find 1.4 million pages on the Internet about "Uber scandal.” The impact of Fowler’s meticulously documented article keeps growing. Mounting evidence of problems has precipitated 20 firings at Uber, a board investigation and the awkwardly explained “leave of absence” for CEO Travis Kalanick.“
Fowler’s piece was well-written, engrossing, and enlightening. I’d love to see it get recognized in this way.
