I Almost Left Tech Today, Here’s Why
Clémentine Pirlot

By sharing your story, you are being a part of the solution, so thank you!! I recently had an uncomfortable experience (incredibly benign by comparison) in which I felt targeted and made fun of by a group of tech bros on a slack channel. I immediately called it out, and had I not, I shudder to think of what might have come out at my expense. As you pointed out, it’s amazing how a person can set the tone, and then the others follow suit. I also got an apology by the moderator (but not from the guy who called me a troll). Sharing my story felt incredibly vulnerable and yet cathartic and empowering. Thank you again for sharing yours!
