Learning from Gay Straight Alliances to Diversify Tech
The tech world can learn from social justice advocates such as myself to increase diversity. I’m a leader of a Gender Sexuality Alliance club from my Community College in rural Southern California. The movement to diversify tech has fallen short probably since the industry is not inclusive. I have experienced a similar environment coming from a conservative town but I survived by creating a GSA club and collaborating with a local LGBT Center all to support queer/trans* youth. Recently I graduated from a coding bootcamp. As a junior developer, I will draw from my social justice skills to critique and to improve the tech industry.
