Ohanian, who stepped down from day to day duties at the site two years ago, announced his intentions Friday in a blog post entitled, “What Did You Do?”
He was motivated to take action because of his biracial daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr.
Ohanian co-founded Reddit 15 years ago, selling the company to Condé Nast in 2006.
In 2015, Ohanian and co-founder Steve Huffman returned to Reddit full time.
