BBC: Ellen Pao to Appeal Verdict in Sex Discrimination Case

posted by Randall

Ellen Pao is expected to appeal a jury verdict that ruled the Silicon Valley venture capitalist firm Kleiner Perkins Caulfield and Byers did not discriminate against her when it fired her, reports the BBC.
 
Pao filed a notice of appeal at the state court in San Francisco on Monday.
 
Her decision to fight on comes despite an offer from Kleiner Perkins to drop its demand to Pao for one million dollars in legal fees.
 
The firm says it remains “committed to gender diversity in the workplace and believe(s) that women in technology would be best served by focusing on this issue outside of continued litigation.”
 
Neither Pao or her attorney made a comment about their latest action, but Pao has previosly said she “did not plan on becoming a symbol” when she sued.
 
She is current interim chief executive of the website Reddit.
 
You can read about the difficulties Pao says she has experienced since suing in the BBC.
