Tech Talent Wars & the Role of Ethics in Big Tech Success (Long-Term) | Frances Haugen | GZERO World

Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen still has hope that the corporate culture inside tech companies can change for the better.
"Huge things that seemed impossible [...] all came to be," she says, comparing the idea to historical tectonic shifts like the end of the Cold War or apartheid in South Africa.

Speaking to Ian Bremmer on GZERO World, Haugen says that she doesn't want to tear down social media companies. In fact, she wants them to be successful in the long run "because culture change will come along with that."

Google recently had to ditch a lucrative Pentagon contract in order to retain the best talent.


Facebook, on the other hand, is at a huge disadvantage because it struggles to recruit top talent because of their negative image in the industry.
