About the event

Rowena is a former assistant to Harvey Wienstein at Miramax Films. In 1998, after he sexually assaulted her at the Venice Film Festival, she was forced to accept a settlement and sign a non-disclosure agreement.  In 2017, she featured anonymously in the New York Times investigation that ignited the #MeToo movement and in 2019, she went public with her story in Jodi Kantor & Megan Twohey's book, She Said, now a major motion picture.  Rowena has been interviewed by hundreds of media outlets (including the BBC, CBS, NBC) and spoken at dozens of corporations, schools and universities across the world.

Since leaving the film industry, Rowena has worked internationally in management consulting and international development for companies including Accenture, PwC, McKinsey and the World Bank.  She holds an MA from Oxford, an MSc from the University of London, and an MBA from London Business School.  She lives in Silicon Valley with her husband and four children.
