Arturo Bejar

Fmr. Director, Engineering, Facebook

Dad of two great kids. Arturo Bejar was the engineering and product leader at Facebook responsible for its efforts to keep users safe from 2009 to 2015. This included starting the "Protect and Care" team which did groundbreaking work on helping teens deal with online bullying, suicidal ideation, child safety, and other challenges inherent to life online. From 2019 to 2021, Bejar returned to the company as a consultant to assist with well-being at Instagram, and found that leadership team did not prioritize the well-being or reduction of harms to teens, which led to his whistleblowing in 2023.
