Take a Seat at The Table

In honor of International Women’s Day, we are throwing it back to a powerful TED talk from Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook. In this talk, Sheryl discusses some of the staggering statistics found within the professional community as it pertains to women. She unpacks just how important it is for women to lean in and take a seat at the table, even if it feels counter cultural. At Ethos3, we believe that women have a powerful voice that needs to be heard and that there are world-changing ideas that...

Jim Steyer runs the powerful nonprofit Common Sense Media; now he’s using his influence to battle big tech

California Governor Gavin Newsom earlier today proposed a so-called digital dividend that would let consumers share in the profits generated by California-based tech companies that have been “collecting, curating and monetizing” their users’ personal data. Newsom added that he has asked his administration to develop a proposal for a “new data dividend for Californians, because we recognize that data has value, and it belongs to you.” It’s an idea that tech companies will surely argue against if ...

Mark Zuckerberg's former mentor: Facebook's 'surveillance capitalism' business model is toxic for democracy (FB)

Roger McNamee was once one of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's closest advisers. He told Business Insider why he thinks Facebook's "surveillance capitalism" business model is toxic for democracy. McNamee said it is down to Zuckerberg to transform the way Facebook makes money or risk "threatening the very foundations of global order." Zuckerberg doesn't seem inclined to agree. He published a defiant blog on Monday, which said people are overly focusing on the "negative" aspects of the social netw...

A look at Birdies, the popular slipper shoe startup that just raised $8 million more from investors

Bianca Gates is a first-generation American, her parents having immigrated to the U.S. from Latin America. As such, she says, after waitressing her way through college at UC Irvine, she was expected to get a safe job with a 401(k) plan and to live with her parents until she was married. Things haven’t gone exactly that way, but one can imagine Gates’s parents feeling pretty satisfied with their daughter’s trajectory nevertheless. The reason: Gates, along with cofounder Marisa Sharkey, are the co...

Facebook employees still love Sheryl Sandberg and say she shouldn't be fired (FB)

Sheryl Sandberg knew more of Facebook’s work with Definers than she let on

Two weeks after the New York Times revealed Facebook’s controversial work with Republican opposition research firm Definers Public Affairs, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg has changed her story in significant ways.

Facebook won't say if it will sever ties with Elliot Schrage, the outgoing top exec who took responsibility for linking critics to George Soros (FB)

Facebook's outgoing communications boss Elliot Schrage has endured a turbulent end to his tenure. He has shouldered responsibility for hiring a PR firm that slung mud at Facebook's rivals and critics —and he also got into a fight with an investor. Both Schrage and Facebook have said recently that he will stay on as an adviser on special projects. Business Insider asked Facebook four times if it will retain Schrage's services after the Definers affair, but the company has refused to answer the ...

Sheryl Sandberg is on the hot seat at Facebook — but ousting her alone wouldn't solve its problems (FB)

Sheryl Sandberg's future at Facebook has become an open topic of discussion in recent weeks. Facebook has stumbled through a myriad of scandals over the last two years and is facing calls for someone to be held accountable for them. There are good reasons for Facebook to oust Sandberg, its chief operating officer, including that she oversaw the groups at the center of many of the fiascos. But firing her wouldn't be nearly enough to solve Facebook's problems — and the problems it poses for soci...

Definers tried to smear Facebook's critics with links to George Soros, a line of attack that has been labeled anti-Semitic. Elliot Schrage, who announced he was leaving back in June 2018, took responsibility — a move that may help protect senior leadership, like Sheryl Sandberg, from the fallout.

The latest scandals at Facebook will hurt morale and make it harder to hire during this critical moment, insiders say (FB)

Facebook's latest scandals will hurt hiring efforts and damage employee morale, insiders say. A recent New York Times report exposed how senior leadership tried to downplay the company's problems and smear its critics. Current and former Facebook employees warn the revelations will further damage already-eroding morale at the company. That, in turn, may make it harder for the company to retain and hire good talent — right as it's trying to solve some of its most difficult problems. Facebook i...
