During her talk, she spoke about the lessons she's learn, one of them being how diversity and inclusion programs aren't enough. 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.

    Good for her, she really did set off a string of events that helped Uber to finally shape up their act. The new administration should really be thanking her.
