I’d probably leave that toxic waste of a workplace even if I weren’t directly affected.
Money and career are worthless if someone loses their integrity (like your ex-colleagues certainly have).
Coming from a poor country I’ve seen discrimination in the workplace first-hand, especially in the tech industry and am currently in a similar position (who knows, maybe I’ll do the same and express myself in words), but being so straightforward and careless about it is another thing altogether.
I sometimes wonder when I hear stories like this, what relationship do these shitty people have with their female family members and friends in their miserable private lives.
Thank you for sharing this with us and I am sure only good things can follow this terrible experience.
