I highly recommend downloading (or buying) a copy of Brotopia and reading it as soon as you can. It’s a sobering expose of our companies, industry, and lore (deep into the PayPal Mafia) – and all the cultural issues we’ve developed along the way.
After last year I thought I understood the issues deeply, but there’s much deeper to go and take responsibility for fixing.
“Silicon Valley has failed women, period, and it’s time for the industry to own it.”
I’ll also add that if you haven’t read Reset by Ellen Pao, that’s a good place to start. I linked to an excerpt a few issues ago, but here it is again just in case: https://www.thecut.com/2017/08/ellen-pao-silicon-valley-sexism-reset-excerpt.html.
