With the recent announcement that tech venture capitols are making a commitment to diversity, a movement was staring on the internet...
And since then, other engineers are responding with their images.
While these new images and prompted discussion is a step in the right direction, there is still a lot we can do to support women in the tech world. @allischaaff did a wonderful job explaining how to create an environment for diversity: Venture Capitalists Pledge to Be Less White, Male. Check out her card.
And help crush the stereotype by also supporting young kids as they grow up with the dream to work in tech. Give them a face to engineering that is something other than all-white and male.
Who knew one blog post could ignite such a profound movement? It can be very alienating not fitting into the standard cookie cutter. Our goal is to bring together a diverse group of like-minded people from technology and science for a fun evening filled with activities, mingling and sharing our voices.
