Pao was one of the earliest voices sounding the alarm about bias and discrimination in the tech world. Reset explores the all-to-common challenges she faced and provides an instructive blueprint for equity and fairness.
4. November 2017, quoteRoxane Gay
Necessary and incisive. As 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
