Tech and VC has not had a good year HR-wise, because so many employees and founders have had bad years for so long. Things have reached a breaking point recently, and those who are trying to fix the problems are scrambling for answers. I reached out to Beth Steinberg, former SVP of People at Brightroll, to ask what could be done to prevent situations like Uber and what we've seen out of the VC world. It was a thoughtful discussion and a good start down the path to learning more. I'll be dedicating a lot of time over the next few months to more conversations about creating cultures of respect, dealing with employee issues, and improving behavior in the tech community.
