How to deal with unconscious bias in the tech industry
from The Root
Scathing diversity reports from major tech companies revealed that women make up less than 30 percent of employees. For minority employees, this number staggers as low as 4 percent. The culprit? Unconscious bias in an industry largely dominated by white men. "We need to have transparent discussions on what bias is and own it. Then we need to get past that bias to a place of acceptance where we need to drive these conversations around diversity and inclusion to actually make change and have every voice at the table," said Kimberly Bryant, founder of Black Girls Code at a panel at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas.
