Passbase Is Sued In SDNY After Firing Its Only African American Female, Forbes 30 Under 30

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, August 10 –  Rose Wanjugu Mwangi started working at tech firm Passbase, along with 34 others, in October 2019. She says she soon faced racism and sexism and she was terminated after complaining on July 1.

 On August 10, she sued.

In the complaint, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York docket where Inner City Press found it, Mwangi recounts that a male engineer at Passbase, Andrei Strugaru, told here that "women belong in the kitchen, because men don’t do a good job there." 

  The case was filed on the day Andrew Cuomo resigned. It names Passbase co-founders Mathias Klenk and Dave McGibbon, both named to Forbes' 30 under 30 Europe in 2020, as individual defendants. It requests the specific performance of reinstating Mwangi, as well as damages and attorneys' fees.  

The case is Mwangi v. Passbase, Inc., et al., 21-cv-6728 (Unassigned)
