About the Author

Sylvia Ann Hewlett is the founding president of the Center for Talent Innovation, a Manhattan-based think tank where she chairs a task force of eighty-two multinational companies focused on fully realizing the new streams of labor in the global marketplace. Her book Forget a Mentor: Find a Sponsor was named one of the ten best business books of 2013 and won the Axiom Book Award.


"Sylvia Ann Hewlett's powerful new book explains how and why the #MeToo movement is challenging corporate America. Compelling, compassionate - and hard to put down - it makes the case that combating sexual misconduct and striving for inclusion are not only the just things to do, they are essential if organizations are to survive and thrive. Particularly valuable are Hewlett's concrete action steps for individuals and corporations. This book will shape how leaders think about and deal with sexual misconduct for years to come."-- Hon. Barbara Jones, former judge in the US District Court for the Southern District and special counsel to the archdiocese of NY with regard to accusations of sexual abuse
"This is an eye-opening book. Sylvia Ann Hewlett's compelling new data shows the scope and--Tiger Tyagarajan, CEO, Genpact
"A bold and urgent call to action for individuals, leaders, and corporations on one of the most significant movements of our time. Hewlett presents a compelling business imperative and a range of solutions to ensure that meritocracy, equality, diversity, and inclusion are rigorously embedded within an institution's culture."--Jyoti Chopra, senior vice president and chief diversity and sustainability officer, MGM Resorts International
"With this incredible addition to her oeuvre, Hewlett proves-- again--that she belongs in the pantheon of thought leaders that drive transformational change, helping companies tackle the toughest challenges. She digs into the hardest layers of #MeToo to undercover hidden pockets of pain that don't make the front pages."--Todd Sears, CEO and founder, Out Leadership
"This is a brave and important book, filled with personal stories and rich data. Hewlett reveals that junior, white, straight women are far from being the only victims of sexual misconduct, and that power--not sexual desire--is at the root of the problem. Once you start reading this book, you won't stop."--Victoria Bateman, the Iain Macpherson Lecturer in Economics at Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge University
"#MeToo in the Corporate World adds a critical dimension to conversations about sexual misconduct and gender equity. Hewlett documents how widespread the abuse of power is, the growing costs to employers, and the imperative for change. Now is the moment for corporations to take action."--Lorraine Hariton, CEO and president, Catalyst
"Brave and powerful. Sylvia Ann Hewlett, the 'mother' of modern leadership theory, offers practical ways of dismantling the privilege that has kept diverse talent on the periphery. Her analysis of the objectification and sexual harassment of black men in the workplace, and the resulting shame and emasculation they suffer, is particularly prescient."--India Gary-Martin, principal, Leadership for Life, and former managing director, JPMorgan Chase
