Madelyn — data from the larger tech companies certainly supports your anecdotal claims. You’re right to remain skeptical — heck, I sure am. My hope is that Oakland’s tech community can create internal dynamics that promote an ethos of inclusion that’s complemented by external pressure/incentives from local govs and nonprofits. Would love to hear any thoughts you may have about how we can encourage more tech companies to hire competent African Americans.
