Jessica has spoken about sexism and gender bias at a variety of institutions, including the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, Harvard Business School, Facebook, Google, Thomson Reuters and others.

Yes, she’s in a real-life feminist fight club.

You can keep in touch with Jessica by signing up for her newsletter, The Gender Letter, at nytimes.com/genderletter.

In the interview, we talk about a wide array of topics: Jessica’s decision to write a major New York Times piece on failure on university campuses; why minorities disproportionately suffer from the imposter syndrome (and what to do about it); how she quickly bounced back after being laid off from Tumblr; how she ended up as the first gender editor of the New York Times; her writing process and failures in writing; and so much more.

I hope you enjoy the conversation as much as I did.
