Ellen Pao is writing a tell-all about her experiences working in the male-dominated tech industry.

The memoir, titled "Reset," will be published by Spiegel & Grau, an imprint of Penguin Random House. No release date has been announced.

The company describes the book as "a fearless first-person account exposing the toxic culture that pervades the tech industry."

The book will feature Pao recalling losing her high-profile gender discrimination suit against venture capital powerhouse Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, and her ouster as chief at the online message board Reddit. Both occurred last year.

Pao has frequently mentioned she's been working on a book.

Last month, Pao and seven other outspoken female tech leaders, including Slack's Erica Baker and former Pinterest engineer Tracy Chou, announced they are forming a new nonprofit, Project Include, to help diversify the industry.
