The power is out. I want to write a blog post, but the only thing worth talking about this week is Susan J. Fowler’s story about her awful year at Uber.

My friends will share her story commenting that “if this is true, it’s damning.”


I’m convinced it’s true.

Uber has a history of bad behavior and misogyny, and then Uber’s head of HR left to join Twitter which doesn’t make a lot of sense.

Even at our favorite companies senior managers will harass female employees and those companies’ employees eventually find out that HR exists to protect the company from liability and not to help them.
