Silicon Valley Workers Thank Ellen Pao With Full-page Newspaper Ad

In the wake of Ellen Pao's losing verdict in her high-stakes gender bias trial, a group of tech workers pooled together money to place a full-page ad in a Palo Alto newspaper with a simple message: "Thanks Ellen." The ad, which appeared in Tuesday's edition of the Palo Alto Daily Post , features a minimalist design with a stark black page and the two words in small white font in the center, as USA Today first reported. Despite her loss, Pao seemed to take consolation in the fact that her story was broadcast to thousands around the world thanks to the intense media interest in the trial.
