Ellen Pao, Kleiner Perkins disagree on whether she’s been fired

The former junior investment partner sued the venture capital firm for gender discrimination and retaliation in May

This much is clear: Ellen Pao is leaving Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. What isn’t so apparent is whether the former investment partner was fired in retaliation for sexual harassment allegations, or whether she is transitioning out of the venture capital firm.

This week on the question-and-answer website Quora, Pao responded to a question about her employment status with the following post: “I have been terminated from my job at KPCB. On Monday afternoon, senior management told me to clean out my office, leave and not come back.”
