A victim of sexual assault herself, Jessica Ladd says it’s time to change the outdated response to rape and assault – especially on college campuses – where most survivors do not even report the event. With better systems for capturing this information and banding survivors together, Jessica says we can start creating a world where rape is rare and inexcusable, and perpetrators are held accountable. She explains how to put survivors back in control.

Jess Ladd is the Founder and CEO of Sexual Health Innovations (SHI), a non-profit dedicated to creating technology that advances sexual health and wellbeing in the United States. At SHI, she spearheaded the creation of the STD partner notification website So They Can Know, the STD test result delivery system Private Results, and the college sexual assault reporting system Callisto.
