Engineering executive Camille Fournier shares the lessons she learned when she worked her way up the corporate ladder at Rent the Runway, a site that enables people to rent clothes for special occasions.

Camille is an engineering executive and author of The Manager’s Path, as well as the editor of the new book 97 Things Everyone Should Know About Engineering Management.

She is a member of the engineering leadership team at Two Sigma Investments and is the former CTO of Rent the Runway.
