Tools and Weapons Podcast Season 2

Tools and Weapons with Brad Smith - in conversation with Ambassador Meg Whitman

In this episode of Tools and Weapons, US Ambassador to Kenya Meg Whitman shares how her mother's experience becoming a certified airplane mechanic during WWII instilled in her the courage to take on big challenges, like building diplomatic bridges in Africa’s burgeoning Silicon Savanah. Throughout her impressive career leading businesses, nonprofits, and now as the US Ambassador to Kenya, Whitman has been driven by a simple question: "What are we going to do about it?" This relentless focus on action propelled her as she transformed eBay from a fledgling startup into a global e-commerce powerhouse and guided her as CEO navigating HP through a high-stakes corporate split.
