Ellen Pao, activist for tech industry inclusiveness.

A survivor and champion of women in tech throughout her battle against the worst trolls of the internet, Ellen Pao demonstrates the extraordinary strength of integrity and initiative to right wrongs. She’s confronted the mobs of faceless cowards on Reddit, she’s challenged female oppression and inequality in the workplace– apparent in most workplaces. Not just as professionals, women across the world can appreciate this thankless fight– to not only constantly prove ourselves against less qualified male counterparts, but to make changes and reveal the obviousness of male privilege.
