Guest Speaker: Jodi Kantor

Jodi Kantor Headshot

Jodi Kantor is a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter and best-selling author whose work has revealed hidden truths about power, gender, technology, politics, and culture.

In October of 2017, she and Megan Twohey broke the story of Harvey Weinstein’s decades of sexual abuse allegations. Their work helped ignite the #MeToo movement, shift attitudes, and spur new laws, policies, and standards of accountability around the globe. Together with a team of colleagues who exposed harassment across industries, they were awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service, journalism’s highest award. Together, they wrote a book on the Weinstein investigation entitled She Said: Breaking the Sexual Harassment Story That Helped Ignite a Movement. 

Before then, Ms. Kantor’s article about the havoc caused by automated scheduling systems in Starbucks workers’ lives spurred changes at the company and helped launch a national fair scheduling movement. After she and David Streitfeld investigated punishing practices at Amazon’s corporate headquarters, the company changed its human resources policies, introducing paternity leave and eliminating its employee ranking system.

The article she wrote about Harvard Business School’s attempt to change its climate for women provoked a national conversation about women in business schools. Ms. Kantor’s report on working mothers and breastfeeding inspired two readers to create the first free-standing lactation suites for nursing mothers, now available in hundreds of airports and stadiums.
