Ellen Pao, Kapor Capital Investment Partner; Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer at the Kapor Center for Social Impact; co-founder of Project Include and Author of Reset: My Fight for Inclusion and Lasting Change

Laura Weidman Powers, Co-founder and CEO of Code2040 — Moderator

In 2012, Ellen Pao sent shockwaves throughout Silicon Valley when she sued her employer, powerhouse venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield Byers, for workplace discrimination against women and other minority groups. While she lost her case in 2015, her fight for change was just beginning. From her work as a founder of Project Include to fighting negative culture as interim CEO of Reddit, Pao dedicates time and energy to making sure others don’t have the same experiences she did, and she recently published her first book, Reset: My Fight for Inclusion and Lasting Change.

Pao’s bravery in calling out systemic harassment and other abusive practices within the tech community has inspired others--in the wake of the most recent stories around discrimination and harassment, many mention Pao by name in their accounts. Today, women, people of color, and allies in the workplace and beyond are standing up for themselves and their colleagues. They’re pushing back against toxic workplace cultures in Silicon Valley and beyond, galvanizing widespread coverage advocating for increased accountability of individuals and companies: they’re resetting Silicon Valley.

Join Ellen Pao and Laura Weidman Powers, co-founder and CEO of Code2040, for an empowering discussion about overcoming the struggle to be heard and raising your voice to create lasting change.
