Sexual Harassment Charge at Kpcb

Fund: Kleiner, Perkins, Caufield & Byers

Posted by jagrmeister721 on 2012-05-25

PUBLIC:

Posting the latest information from the lawsuit against KP over sexual harassment. Gender discrimination is a serious issue in the Valley and while the facts of this case will become more clear in the months ahead, a worthwhile read regarding this fund. Excerpted:

"About six months into her employment with Kleiner Perkins, Pao, then a junior partner, went on a business trip to Germany with another then-junior partner, Ajit Nazre. During that time, Nazre allegedly made “inappropriate sexual advances” toward Pao, which she allegedly “rebuffed” at the start.

Pao also claims she was not alone in being the victim of unwanted advances at work. According to the suit, “at least three administrative assistants complained that they were being harassed or discriminated against by KPCB partners in May 2007.” Kleiner Perkins allegedly hired an outside investigator to look into those claims.

Ray Lane, a senior Kleiner partner, allegedly asked Pao to let go of her complaints and encouraged her to have a romantic relationship with Nazre after all. The suit reads:
“Ray Lane pressured [Pao] to drop the matter because of Mr. Lane’s close ties with and mentorship of Mr. Nazre. Though Plaintiff had formally complained about Mr. Nazre’s behavior, Mr. Lane encouraged [Pao] to engage in a personal relationship with Mr. Nazre and even to marry him.”
