Katie Benner ’99 is Part of Pulitzer-Prize Winning Team

[Attachment] A story by reporter Katie Benner '99 is part of a collection of New York Times stories covering sexual harassment that has received the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service.

In her article, 'Women in Tech Speak Frankly on Culture of Harassment,' Benner interviews more than two dozen women in the technology start-up industry. 'The new accounts underscore how sexual harassment in the tech start-up ecosystem goes beyond one firm and is pervasive and ingrained. Now their speaking out suggests a cultural shift in Silicon Valley, where such predatory behavior had often been murmured about but rarely exposed,' Benner writes.
