Like most of you, I have been thinking about the recent news headlines as the courageous women stand up and tell their stories of injustices placed upon their bodies and souls. Ensuring women are respected, supported, and afforded justice is vital. It is unacceptable…
Thank you for writing this, Kaya. For an industry that has made so many world-changing innovations, there’s really no excuse for leaving the diversity problem unsolved. I’m one of two women at a 25-person company and I’m constantly thinking to myself, “Where have all the brilliant women gone?”
>> I haven’t even started my first full-time job yet and I’m already so tired of feeling erased and mistreated by the tech industry.
On behalf of folks who want you to feel welcomed and embraced by the tech industry, feel free to reach out if we (hunter, satya, beth @ www.homebrew.co) can ever be of help.
and… Go Code2040!!!!!
From a Bernie Sanders supporter, I sincerely thank you for writing this. This essay is a beautiful balance of logic and compassion rarely seen in any political writing, and I’m afraid so much nuance has been lost in the conversation because many voters want to see history of either candidate as the definitive proof needed to vote in this primary.
Wonderful touching brought tears of joy! All should read Immediately… Saving, by far my favorite story ever! You have a lovely spirit shines beauty! Would love to see the reaction of our future Madam President Hillary and all her family & friends! She is our light as we go forward together “fighting for us as we fight for her.”
Sums up my feelings. Thanks for this. Young voters need to read at least one of Hillary Clinton’s books and books about her written by others before they jump to conclusions about her. Same goes for Bernie Sanders too, of course. We need to read and listen more before we become opinionated about anything.
Thank you, I truly had began to think that because some had not been down the path of us older women … that our fights were viewed as nothing. And in doing so I was afraid no one really realized how very easily what we have gained could be taken away.
