For this episode, I interviewed Brooke Taylor founder of Brooke Taylor Coaching.

Brooke shares a fascinating insight into life growing up in the tech hub of Silicon Valley in the 90s, where hyper-masculinity and suspended femininity played a massive part in misaligned success values that eventually lead to toxic addictive behaviours and unrealistic self-expectations.

Working for one of the ‘Tech Giants’ Brooke experienced workplace harassment from a person in an authority figure whom she trusted and respected.

Brooke is sharing her story for the first time.
