The launch of Diversify Tech on Product Hunt went way better than I expected. Thank you all so much for coming out to support the initiative!
There's been a lot of discussion on speaking engagements this week. Smashing Magazine brought up speakers fees and the broken culture within commercial events. Jenny Shen talked about her year as a speaker from the point of view of a self-employed, women and person of color.
I was really disappointed to hear about the microaggressions, racism, and exclusion happening at Girl Develop It. If you haven't yet, listen to Shanise share her experience with the organization on the #causeascene podcast.
As always, I'd love to hear about what you are working on and any feedback about the newsletter. Feel free to reply and let me know what you think!
