Freada Kapor Klein’s Alleged Profile As Posted On Unreliable Wikipedia

Freada Kapor Klein, Ph.D. (born 1952) is a pioneer in the field of organizational development and human resources and diversity consulting, as co-founder of the first organization in the U.S. to offer comprehensive services, training, and consultation on the topic of sexual harassment to both the private and public sectors in 1976 . Afterward, she became the first director of Employee Relations for Lotus Development Corporation, before founding her own research, training, and consulting firm, Klein Associates, Inc., in 1987. Klein also frequently served as an expert witness on gender discrimination and sexual harassment.[1]


Klein now devotes the majority of her time to work in the non-profit world. In 2001 she founded the Level Playing Field Institute, a non-profit which promotes innovative approaches to fairness in higher education and workplaces by removing barriers to full participation.[1][2] While serving on the Executive Board of the College of Letters and Science at the University of California, Berkeley, Klein co-founded the IDEAL Scholars Fund with three other board members in 2000. IDEAL invests in high-caliber, underrepresented students at Berkeley by providing resources and support to maximize their educational experiences and leadership opportunities during college and beyond. The fund was established in response to California Proposition 209.

Klein’s for-profit and non-profit endeavors include the design and execution of several landmark studies, including: an annual survey of quality of worklife issues in Internet start-ups, a survey of Fortune 500 manufacturing and service firms to determine the effectiveness of corporate efforts to address sexual harassment, a survey of gender bias and sexual harassment experienced by Massachusetts physicians and medical students, survey projects for the United Nations and World Bank on various forms of harassment, and a national representative survey of U.S. employers and employees on their perceptions of fairness in the workplace.[1]

Klein is quoted extensively by the media. She has been interviewed for numerous publications, including: Business Week, the Chicago Tribune, Forbes, Fortune, the Harvard Business Review, the Los Angeles Times, the The National Law Journal, Newsweek, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Post. Television appearances include: “The Today Show,” “NBC Nightly News,” “Prime Time Live,” “Nightline,” “The MacNeil-Lehrer Newshour,” “20/20,” “CBS This Morning,” and “Good Morning America.”

Klein received her undergraduate degree in criminology from UC Berkeley in 1974, and her Ph.D. in social policy and research from the Heller School at Brandeis University in 1984, with a Social Science Research Council fellowship for the study of sexual harassment in federal government employment.

Klein and her husband, Mitchell Kapor, live in San Francisco, California.[2]

She served with her husband on the Board of Trustees of the Summer Science Program from 2004 to 2006. He had been a student of the program in 1966.

  • Yet Another Unlicensed Contractor Debacle 2017/07/10
    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them. But they dragged out […]
  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]
  • Writing our obit is a bit premature… 2017/04/06
    Welcome to 2017! Yeah, we know, a bit of time has passed since we’ve been hyperactive here. We’ve been a bit busy frying other fish.  If you consider yourself a progressive, you’ve already read and possibly even recognized our work elsewhere. We will be continuing those projects and check in here as not to neglect […]
  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels. Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]
  • Working for the Judicial Council and a pattern of racketeering activity 2016/10/31
    The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, commonly referred to as the RICO Act or simply RICO, is a United States federal law that provides for extended criminal penalties and a civil cause of action for acts performed as part of an ongoing criminal organization. The RICO Act focuses specifically on racketeering, and it allows […]
