No Fear Institute
The gripping graphic account of former EPA worker Dr. Maria Coleman-Adebayo, and her experience with the government agency in the 1990s after she uncovers reports of South African miners being poisoned to death by the metal they were excavating.

Dr. Coleman-Adebayo describes her work environment at the EPA as antidemocratic, stifling, racist, and sexist. It was an atmosphere similar to a 21st-century plantation, an intricate culture in which workers were controlled by a fear.

Eventually, Coleman-Adebayo sued the EPA, and she won. As a result, civil rights legislation was signed into law by the Bush administration.
And Coleman founded an organization for whistleblowers: No Fear Institute.

Lesson: Before entering an unfamiliar environment always investigate the hidden culture of that industry, company or organization.
