Ellen Pao To Appeal Gender Bias Decision

According to Reuters, Ellen Pao will appeal the outcome of her high-stakes gender bias trial against Kleiner, Perkins, Caufield and Byers.
Kleiner Perkins previously said it would waive the nearly $1 million Pao owes the firm in legal fees if she gave up her right to appeal.
Pao's four-week trial earlier this year sparked a far-reaching conversation about gender inequity in the tech industry, where women in tech and leadership positions are scarce. The problem is especially true of venture capital sector, which has a reputation as an insular boys club.
Speaking at Recode's Code Conference last week, Pao said she had no regrets about entering into the years-long legal battle.
