How the tech sector could move in One Direction — Sacha Judd
"If there’s one thing I know for sure it’s that diversity doesn’t have a single solution. We need to work on culture and unconscious bias, we need to make our computer science degree courses practical and interesting and welcoming so that more people want to take them, we need to improve technical education in our schools so that our kids are as excited about a possible career in tech as they are anything else. We need to improve access to technology in our communities in the first place.

But when it comes to just this one aspect of the problem, our pipeline, maybe we also need to recognise that that it’s already full of talented, creative, passionate, dedicated, hardworking young women online.

We just have to find a way to include them."

The issue: Women who take on the major role of managing household chores, and men who are willing to help and think they do half the work, but only do things when asked.

First comment? But what about the mens?!

Reflecting on one very, very strange year at Uber
As most of you know, I left Uber in December and joined Stripe in January. I've gotten a lot of questions over the past couple of months about why I left and what my time at Uber was like. It's a strange, fascinating, and slightly horrifying story that deserves to be told while it is still fresh in my mind, so here we go.

Etsy Lessons | Lara Hogan
Of the many embarrassingly novice questions I brought to these meetings, I asked her once how I should handle invitations where it’s clear that they’re asking me because I’m a woman. My instincts were to be dismissive of these gigs, to be offended that I was just being asked because they’re filling a quota. She totally rocked my world view by responding, “Why would you say no? This is your opportunity to have another soapbox. This your opportunity to go and do work that helps other women. This is an opportunity to show up and blow everybody out of the water.

John Allspaw, former CTO, was famous to me before I went to Etsy. Imagine how floored I was when I arrived to interview and John bumped into me in the hallway in between meetings and said, “Lara! I’m so happy that you’re here to interview with us. We are very lucky.” How did he even know my name? How did he have any idea who this random person in the hallway was?? His attention to individuals, their stories, their families, their quirky traits, makes such an impact. I always felt like he genuinely wanted to make me feel welcomed and supported, even before I started.
