I’m literally sending this to every “pick your brain” coffee request ever.
People make this assumption that with no context or who they are or what they’re doing, that you are willing to give up your time for no good reason. I personally find the request a little arrogant for some reason.
Thanks for this Chloe! While all the women in tech are reading this and *nodding their heads* — those who should be reading it are probably elsewhere harassing women on the internet. I will reference this article every time a creepy dude sends me a message. “Intervention: You should read this.”
