Thank you again Vivianne.
Chris Barney

Hey Chris Barney —Thank you again for your thoughtfulness and willingness to be transparent; as always, it’s a breath of fresh air.

Unfortunately, I don’t think that a minority woman is going to be the one who gets through to this Principal. I think it’s going to take another white man to help this Principal see his privilege and the way he speaks about diversity for what it really is. My hope is that these posts would encourage others with more privilege to choose courage over comfort, to make the decision to ask their co-workers/management the hard questions and help others see the ways they are both implicitly and explicitly adding to the barriers that keep diversity - and dare I saw humanity - out of the tech community.
