"Black Box is more than a story about pregnancy discrimination, it's a book about why corporations continue to get away with allowing discrimination and harassment to occur within their walls - thanks to silencing mechanisms like NDAs. Glasson teaches us just how hard it remains to hold employers accountable and I stand with her on her journey as a fellow advocate for change." -Gretchen Carlson, Acclaimed Journalist, Best-Selling Author, Empowerment Advocate, Co-Founder Lift Our Voices
"This inside look at work culture and how it affects personal lives will pull you in and keep you there. An eye-opening look at the tech industry and the discriminations that still pervade the workforce, Black Box is an informative and gripping read that will have you seeing red flags in your own life more clearly." - Independent Book Review
When Chelsey Glasson landed her dream job at Google, she was thrilled to join what she viewed as a progressive and inclusive organization. But from the moment she received her job offer, she began to experience instances of discrimination and harassment-eventually culminating in a pregnancy discrimination lawsuit.
Friends, family, and even lawyers told Chelsey to move on, but she knew holding Google accountable was the path to proper healing. Although Google would spend significant resources to discredit and silence her, the truth eventually prevailed.
Black Box is a story of triumph over a tech giant, a cautionary tale of how misconduct against women and minorities persists in the workplace, and a rallying call to break down the many barriers to justice.
No one wins when discrimination and harassment are allowed to run rampant. For those who have suffered silently, Black Box offers a critical perspective to consider in choosing your own path forward.
