DESCRIPTION
She's been called othe face of changeo (Time) and a ofeminist heroo (Elle). Women from Hillary Clinton to Sheryl Sandberg to Anita Hill have publicly supported her. In 2015, Ellen Pao's trial against the powerhouse venture capitalist firm Kleiner Perkins shook up Silicon Valley and riveted the nation as she spoke out against the subtle and insidious discrimination women, people of color, and others experience daily in corporate America. When she lost her case, her supporters were outraged, but Pao resolved to keep fighting. As CEO of reddit, she moved to ban revenge porn and online harassment and called for tech companies to uphold their moral responsibility. Her experiences, including her fight in the courts against a monolithic opponent, are told here in jaw-dropping detail. After it all, Pao realized, we need to hit reset. Her account is the story of a whistleblower who aims to empower anyone who struggles to be heard, in Silicon Valley and beyond.
REVIEWS
Advance praise for Reset "Necessary and incisive. As Ellen Pao detailed her experiences, while also communicating her passion for the work men often impeded her from doing, I was nothing short of infuriated. It was great to see a highly accomplished woman of color speaking out like this, and hopefully this book will encourage more women to come forward, give voice to their experiences in the workplace, and contribute to meaningful change."--Roxane Gay
