Today I sit down with one of the most influential women in the tech industry, Susan Wojcicki. Susan Wojcicki is CEO of YouTube, the world’s most popular digital video platform used by more than a billion people across the globe to access information, share video, and shape culture. An early champion of online video who was instrumental in Google's 2006 acquisition of YouTube, Susan now oversees YouTube's content and business operations, engineering, and product development.
Susan shares to us her story from studying history and literature to being a tech icon. She also talks about the importance of balancing time at work and spending time with family, having her mom as an inspiration in her parenting, and why it’s necessary to practice supportive leadership.
