Founder conversation: Dr. Julia Shaw of Spot

Dr. Julia Shaw, Cofounder of Spot, joined Dr. Jessica Collier, Cofounder and Head of Product at All Turtles, for an onstage conversation at the All Turtles Paris launch event. Spot is a product that helps users to report workplace harassment and discrimination without talking to a human. With a background in memory research, Dr. Shaw shed light on the need for such a product: “It’s about avoiding biased interview techniques. As we know, human beings, when we talk to each other, are filled with bias and assumptions, and they ask–for lack of a better word–stupid things. And so they get bad information.” Spot tackles that problem by allowing users to report workplace harassment incidents using a bot; they can then choose whether or not to file their report with their employer.
