Diversify your Feed

Ada Lovelace day recently inspired me to think more broadly about diversity in technology. While there are a lot of Diversify your Feedresources on women in technology, I feel less attention is given to people of color and transgender people in technology. One easy way to get started being more active on diversity in tech issues is to educate yourself.

Mary Scotton of Salesforce gives an awesome talk on ‘Hacking the Tech Workforce’ where one of her tips is to diversify your twitter feed, or any other sources of information you use these days. Here are some links I love, please feel free to tell me more so I can update and add to this list to make sure diverse voices are represented!

I look forward to hearing from you about how you diversify your feed!
