A high-profile Reddit employee is the third to resign in several weeks as the San-Francisco based company struggles to deal with hate speech and frustrated users.
Reddit’s former CEO shared his stinging stance on what caused the website’s moderators to revolt and eventually push out interim CEO Ellen Pao.
Reddit’s interim CEO Ellen Pao is stepping down following days of unyielding criticism over her handling of an employee’s dismissal, and the circulation of an online petition calling for her Pao’s removal. http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2015/07/06/petition-calling-for-reddit-ceo-ellen-paos-resignation-hits-over-177k-signatures/
A petition calling for Ellen Pao to step down as Reddit’s CEO has collected over 100,000 signatures in less than three days.
Reddit moderators shut down over 250 subreddits on Friday to protest the unexpected termination of an employee who managed the site’s popular “Ask Me Anything” interviews.
Attorneys for Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers included the figure in court documents filed in San Francisco Superior Court against Ellen Pao, and a spokeswoman for the company said Pao sought the money in exchange for not appealing.
Ellen Pao, the woman at the center of a high-profile gender bias lawsuit against an elite Silicon Valley venture capital firm filed an appeal on Monday of a jury verdict against her.
After losing a sex-discrimination lawsuit in Silicon Valley last week, Ellen Pao continues on her crusade to bring gender equality to the tech world, but this time with a focus on her home turf.
