Life’s too short to just “lean in” and shut up. Join host Sara Wachter-Boettcher for a feminist look at real leadership in tech and design.
Each week, you’ll meet new authors, activists, entrepreneurs, and troublemakers of all types who are changing the status quo: fighting online harassment, dismantling white supremacy in design, and so much more. You’ll hear how they got started, where they found the courage to speak up, and what they do to take care of themselves in tough times. Produced by Active Voice.
