As a law student, Brittan Heller was the target of a campaign of online harassment that created enormous stress for her personal and professional lives, led her to fear for her safety, and ultimately prompted her to file a landmark lawsuit. In the course of her legal career, she has helped other victims of online harassment and today advises tech companies on what they can do to help moderate the content on their websites. For this edition of “One Leader, One Story, One Lesson,” presented by Chicago Booth Review and Booth’s Harry L. Davis Center for Leadership, Heller talks to Booth’s John Paul Rollert about her experience and how she was able to use it as the foundation for a thriving career.

Note: The following includes a description of severe online harassment, including graphic language.
