WOMAN ENGINEER PRODUCES BOOK AND MOVIE, CREATES WEB PLATFORM FOR AUTHORS AND CREATIVE ENTREPRENEURS AFTER GETTING FIRED FROM GOVERNMENT JOB
If you are highly sensitive, dislike controversy, or don’t want to know anything about sexual harassment in the workplace, then please don’t read this post to find out how Lisa Schaefer turned her experiences into a movie and more.
Washington, DC, March 21, 2013 – Lisa Schaefer was always a high achiever throughout her twelve years of engineering education. But the workforce wasn’t quite as accepting of her contributions. So when she was fired from her job at a multi-billion dollar government contractor the day after a fellow employee masturbated in front of her, she decided she would never go back to another job like that again.
Instead, she wrote a book about what it was like working in that office. She also produced the web series and movie Budget Justified, reenacting what went on in those offices leading up to getting shut into a conference room with a coworker with his pants down.
Having experimented with gamer platforms where there’s constant opportunity for live interaction, Schaefer wasn’t satisfied with online resources for authors to sell their books. Thus she’s created CrowdPublish.TV, an online artist shop where authors & book lovers interact directly and build community through live streaming video.
“With the internet, television no longer has to be one way communication,” Schaefer says. With CrowdPublish.TV, authors can hold discussions with readers, almost as though everyone is hanging out in a bookstore together. Authors no longer have to be beholden to a middle-man to control whom they reach.
