Ellen Pao has a memoir coming out about her experiences as a woman of color in Silicon Valley.
Recode reports that the former CEO of Reddit and partner at venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers just inked a deal with Random House imprint Spiegel & Grau to publish “Reset,” which is billed as “a fearless first-person account exposing the toxic culture that pervades the tech industry.”
Pao rose to prominence in the spring of 2015 when she filed a lawsuit against Kleiner Perkins for gender discrimination. Pao lost the case, but has since crusaded for diversity in the tech industry and recently founded Project Include, a nonprofit that aims to build “meaningful, enduring diversity and inclusion into tech companies.”
