re: If it really bothers you, make a plan and do something about it. Negative campaigning is for politicians.

I agree about negative campaigning. The struggle for me is what I can do to help. As others have stated this isn't an easy problem to solve. It requires explicit inclusion of thought and catching things like unconscious bias.

So yes I think we all should make a plan and take this on. The question becomes how do we start?


The same way you start any dev project - learn "Hello, World!" Go to a tech Meetup at your local HBCU and listen to what people talk about. Find a project you can give a couple of hours to volunteer on. We won't solve this with a single grand plan; we will solve it by building and nurturing the diverse networks we claim to want to participate in.
