Recently, a personal account written by an anonymous woman working in Silicon Valley, and published on Forbes.com got many people talking about its contents including the issue of séxism in the tech industry – what needs to change to make sure that séxism didn’t go unchecked.
ELLE magazine decided to interview Michelle Lam, the founder of True&Co, a brilliant online bra-shopping startup that’s sort of like Warby Parker for intimates, has experienced some situations like the one described in Forbes, but she also has some ideas about how to change the industry–and our workplace culture at large.
“I’ve been a master’s student, a strategy consultant, and an entrepreneur—and everything is male dominated. Every single one of those industries has those stories. I have a wealth of experiences–great interactions, interactions that could have come from a movie about séxual harassment. It’s not isolated to one industry or one power dynamic. It happens all the time,” Lam says.
