ABC7/KGO: Ellen Pao Takes Stand in Silicon Valley Sex Discrimination Case

posted by Randall

Ellen PaoEllen Pao took the stand in her sex discrimination case Monday against her former employer Kleiner Perkins Caufield and Byers, reported ABC7/KGO.

The case is shining a spotlight on gender inequality in Silcon Valley.

Pao said she originally turned down the job because she was offered a position she considered too junior. She later took the job after the offer was revised. She said her trouble started after she ended an affair with a colleague, Ajit Nazre, who she said misled her into thinking his wife had left him.

“When I found out he had lied to me and his wife had not left him, I ended it immediately and permanently. I was furious,” she said.

You can read about how Pao says life changed for her at Kleiner Perkins Caufield and Byers after that on ABC7/KGO.

Pao is scheduled to take the stand again today.
