Prioritizing diversity in our companies, events, projects, and content can provide underrepresented individuals with valuable exposure and experience over time.
Diverse podcast guests, speakers, and guest writers mean a broader audience base.
Featuring marginalized people in your project can help them overcome imposter syndrome and combat unfair hiring practices.
I appreciate the support that this platform provides to create connections within the WordPress and tech community to help prioritize diversity. The database is a good resource for employers and others looking to be more inclusive as they expand their network.
The Underrepresented in Tech Podcast
Making the tech world more diverse is not a one-time job. It’s something we must all work at over time.
Our podcast provides unscripted and honest conversations about topics and struggles facing underrepresented people today.
Join Michelle and Allie (and sometimes a special guest) as they discuss topics like open source contribution, hiring, salary, and more… all from a DEI approach.
