"Black Box is more than a story about pregnancy discrimination, it's a book about why corporations continue to get away with allowing discrimination and harassment to occur within their walls - thanks to silencing mechanisms like NDAs. Glasson teaches us just how hard it remains to hold employers accountable and I stand with her on her journey as a fellow advocate for change." -Gretchen Carlson, Acclaimed Journalist, Best-Selling Author, Empowerment Advocate, Co-Founder Lift Our Voices
"A revelatory and brave look into the bizarre inner workings of Google--and what it takes to seek fairness for pregnant working women." -Katherine Ellison, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Mommy Brain: How Motherhood Makes You Smarter.
"This inside look at work culture and how it affects personal lives will pull you in and keep you there. An eye-opening look at the tech industry and the discriminations that still pervade the workforce, Black Box is an informative and gripping read that will have you seeing red flags in your own life more clearly." - Independent Book Review
You don't have to fight workplace discrimination alone.
By the time Chelsey Glasson filed a lawsuit for pregnancy discrimination against tech giant Google, she had lost the job she once loved and had gone against the advice of trusted professionals.
Many thought she would lose everything. Instead, her faith in fairness, reparation, and equal opportunity was restored.
In Black Box, Chelsey shares her story and provides the strategies you need to pursue justice for yourself and your family in the fight against pregnancy and maternity discrimination in the workplace. A deeply ingrained prejudice, pregnancy discrimination poses a variety of hardships for its victims, including judgment from friends and coworkers and a newfound, ever-present sense of self-doubt. If you've encountered pregnancy discrimination, though, you have options. A tale of retaliation, redemption, and the quest for justice, Black Box is an empowering memoir and insightful guide for reclaiming confidence and making justice accessible to all.
