Time and time again, I raised concerns regarding vehicle pricing and manufacturing deadlines, but no one listened, even though I have extensive experience launching and pricing vehicles. It wasn’t until my (often less experienced) male colleagues raised the exact same ideas that the Chief Growth Officer (internally called Chief Commercial Officer) would respond. Never in my years in the auto industry had I experienced such blatant marginalization.

Schwab said she warned executives that Rivian’s vehicles were underpriced but she was rebuffed. Behl later agreed Rivian would need to raise vehicle prices after a male executive raised the issue with him, the lawsuit states.


Schwab said she also voiced skepticism around Rivian’s manufacturing and delivery targets during sales and operations meetings in September. Rivian last week disclosed in an amended securities filing it plans to deliver 1,000 R1Ts by the end of the year.

Wow, bold face and underline. Need to throw in some fonts while you're at it, perhaps some ALL CAPS and emojis too ... :rolleyes:

And it would help your case if you didn't spam your post across five different threads simultaneously.

The above information is not news - it was publicized just before the IPO almost four months ago. It was discussed several times in these forums back then. The quotes about pricing are meant to illustrate an instance of gender discrimination, not securities fraud. The court will hear and see far more than we ever will, and will hopefully make a correct ruling on her case. Speculate all you want, but you don't have the facts so you shouldn't pre-judge it either way. Even given the above anecdote is correct, that does not prove discrimination, it's just one piece of the pattern she will have to prove - everyone I know at every level in the corporate world, government, and military, including me, has been marginalized like that at some point in their career. Even if she is totally correct, they are allowed to fire her for any legal reason, including out of spite for repeatedly pointing out information about pricing that they didn't want to hear.
