Made Tougher by Politics

Meg Whitman, Hewlett Packard Enterprise
In conversation with: Tina Seelig, Stanford University

Meg Whitman contrasts her 2010 campaign for California governor with her career as a tech executive. She explains how politicians must endure intense public scrutiny and have a much wider constituency to keep in mind when they speak. While she lost the race, Whitman says the experience made her tougher and deepened her understanding of government: “What the government does is it sets the environment for the rest of us to be successful.”
