Dr Julia Shaw is a psychological scientist, popular science author, and the co-founder of Spot. For over a decade, she has researched police interviewing and emotional memories. When the #MeToo movement took shape she realised that there is tremendous potential for work at the intersection of harassment, memory science and technology. That’s why she teamed up with some brilliant minds and in 2018 co-founded Spot. Spot is a Silicon Valley startup that uses memory science and artificial intelligence to revolutionise the reporting of workplace harassment and discrimination.
I want to empower those who have been harassed or discriminated against at work to speak up without fear, and help organisations build more inclusive and respectful work environments.
We are beyond borders
“I wasn’t expecting to feel so emotional today about real life stories. It was very, very powerful. Just get out there and talk to people. Get out of your comfort zone. Be more generous.”
