This summer, WIB-RTP is reading Reset: My Fight for Inclusion and Lasting Change by Ellen Pao, a tech investor, inclusion and diversity activist, former CEO of reddit, and cofounder of Project Include. Three years ago, she sued a major venture capital firm, “calling out workplace discrimination and retaliation against women and other underrepresented groups.” In Reset, “Pao shines a light on troubling issues that plague today’s workplace and lays out practical, inspiring, and achievable goals for a better future.” Join us for a discussion of this book and the important issues it raises. The book club meeting will be facilitated by WIB-RTP member Zoma Foster.

Note: Attendees are responsible for obtaining the book on their own; WIB-RTP will not be providing copies of the book. Everyone is encouraged to attend regardless of whether they have read the book - the discussion will be relevant for all of us!
