That anti-diversity memo thing

As a man working in technology, the lack of diversity in our companies is of immediate concern to me. And I know that there are ‘bro-grammers’ who seem to think women aren’t fit to work in tech, and I just don’t want to engage with idiocy like that.

Normally I wouldn’t even write an entry about it, but today I found this excellent post which expresses my exact sentiments with such clarity.


Top highlight:


By the way, if you are one of those people who still thinks that the memo was “perfectly reasonable” or “made some good points”, and we know each other, please get in touch so that I can re-evaluate our relationship.
