A paragraph on sexism in computer science

Trevor encouraged me to write a paragraph on sexism in computer science and how we can change it. I encourage you to do the same!

Here’s mine:

Angela Harms had a great quote on her recent appearance on the Ruby Rogues podcast. It’s been ringing in my head all month: Stay present, stay vulnerable.

I think it applies in a lot of situations and sexism in the work place is one of them. The news I’ve seen on the topic lately tends to be a situation that could have been avoided if people weren’t trying to be cool or save face. We already build the most complex things that humans make. No need to act cool or demean your co-workers. We’re all smart here. Stay present, stay vulnerable.
