Tech still doesn't get diversity. Here's how to fix it
Last month, in response to news of President Donald Trump's controversial executive orders, Apple CEO Tim Cook stated that his company, whose founder Steve Jobs was the son of a Syrian immigrant, would not exist if the U.S. didn't have sound immigration policies. While Apple and other American tech firms should be applauded for joining the legal fight against the executive order and making statements such as "diversity makes us stronger," they should also use this moment as an opportunity for some much-needed self-reflection on a troubling reality: The American tech industry remains a bastion of white, male privilege.
