    Ellen Pao

    Ellen Pao

    Ellen Pao has become a champion for fairness and inclusion in Silicon Valley as a long-time entrepreneur and tech investor. Her landmark gender discrimination case against venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins in 2012 inspired other women to stand up against harassment and discrimination in the workplace, also known as the “Pao Effect.” As the CEO of Reddit, Ellen was the first major social platform leader to ban revenge porn, unauthorized nude photos, and cross-platform harassment. Currently, she is the CEO of nonprofit Project Include, which uses data-based solutions and recommendations for equity at tech companies. Ellen joins Jennifer Palmieri to discuss whether or not CEOs have the power and technology to control misinformation and hate, what the “Bamboo Ceiling” is, and their expectations vs. reality for women in the workplace.

    Mary Trump

    Mary Trump

    Even though Mary Trump believes her uncle Donald Trump is a weak and “deeply sick” man, it still wasn’t easy for her to stand up to him and write a tell-all book about her family. In her interview with Jennifer Palmieri, she uses her PhD in psychology to explain how toxic dynamics created by her grandparents trickled down to the rest of the family, how she was able to avoid some of those influences, and what gave her the courage to take on the most powerful man in the free world by writing her new book Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man. She uses that same understanding to predict how President Trump (though she wishes people would just call him Donald) will react to the results of the upcoming election.
