She said Uber checked all the boxes, offering things like employee resource groups and training on unconscious bias — a buffet of the kinds of programs and initiatives that would signal a company invested in the issue. However, Fowler said, there were foundational issues and systemic problems undermining all those efforts. “It was like trying to put a Band-Aid on a gunshot wound,” she said.Nevertheless, Fowler focused on how her life experiences and the wide breadth of other people’s stories and philosophical works she’s read shaped her and equipped her to write the blog post and deal with everything that came next. “Live your story, whatever it is, and make it a good one,” she said. Culture At SXSW 2019, Susan Fowler said a “group of people all over the world decided to take their story back.” Rita Quinn / Getty Images In the two years since Susan Fowler published a blog post chronicling sexual harassment and discrimination at Uber, she’s chosen to say as little as possible about her experience.But Sunday, at SXSW during a session called The Power of a Story, Fowler said she was finally ready to talk. “The world completely changed, and for the most part, it completely changed for the better,” Fowler told the crowd, alluding to the #metoo movement against sexual harassment that swept through industries like media and tech in 2017. “It changed because a group of people all over the world decided to take their story back.” In a roughly hour-long session, Fowler stood at the podium and delivered an optimistic and encouraging view on the power of stories. She described Silicon Valley in 2017 as “Rome at the height of its decadence and decay,” with a whisper network of information about the companies and managers to avoid that wasn’t accessible to junior engineers like she’d been. • SXSW 2019 More from SXSW Bill Nye crashes AOC’s session SXSW 2019 embraces #MeToo Amazon’s apocalypse is a party Good Omens brings the End Times to SXSW 1:13 Mar 19 • AOC, Bill Nye and the apocalypse: The insanity of SXSW 2019 Mar 15 • LG ‘Snow White’ makes ice cream from capsules
Having launched Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Go series, Xiaomi is all geared up for the new budget phone Redmi Y3 and in a bid to gain eyeballs ahead of the official debut, the company has come out with a durability test video of the upcoming device.In the teaser clip, Xiaomi’s Redmi Y3 is thrown into a dustbin and the top is plastered with the device inside. It is made to tumble down the stairs multiple times and we can see the phone getting hit at multiple points including the display, but in the end, there is not even a scratch anywhere on the phone. Xiaomi Redmi Y3’s shell teased on TwitterRedmi India/Twitter (screen-grab)In the process, Xiaomi has officially revealed the design language front and back. It sports a dot-notch display and on the rear side, it features a vertically aligned dual-camera in the top left corner and a fingerprint sensor upper middle in the centre.It also flaunts glossy blue-hued shell with gradient finish, as it reflects multiple colours when viewed in different angles. Going by the video, I believe the Redmi Y3 features a polycarbonate-based cover with an extra layer of either glass or transparent plastic on top, which is found in rival brands in the sub-Rs 20,000 price range.
