Who created this toolkit?

This guide was created by Valla, a startup that helps people resolve their own employment situations.

Valla was created by two women in the tech industry, Kate Ho and Danae Shell, who faced discrimination themselves and didn’t know what to do next. They realised that they weren’t alone - millions of people every year have an issue at work that they can’t afford to hire a lawyer to help with, and many end up just dropping it as a result. Valla exists to help you flip the script - from “so they just left” to “so they fought back and won.”

It’s important to note that while lawyers helped write this guide, Valla is not a law firm and we can’t offer you legal advice. But that’s okay - many people don’t need to pay a law firm to resolve their issue, and this guide will help you learn how to resolve it yourself.
