Friends (esp. lady friends), don't put off sharing your experiences because you don't feel like an "expert." Your expertise grows as you share what you're learning (and others appreciate hearing your point of view)!

This is a good thread, but hiring managers: you don’t need to wait for people to ask. When I talk to under-indexed folk considering joining my team I say, “I don’t know if you have any questions or concerns about d&i, but I want you to know it’s something I take very seriously.”

Also, giving me diversity efforts that only talk about balancing the gender ratio, and doesn’t mention about POC, LGBTQ, disability, etc shows me that your diversity efforts are shallow and don’t include all the different axes of inclusion.

Another common answer, “we’re a multicultural office” misses the point. A team of white guys from Germany, France, and Canada is multicultural and yet! Is still a team of all white guys!

Vague answers like “we treat everyone here with respect” is an unhelpful platitude that doesn’t acknowledge the nuances of microaggressions, and makes me suspicious that you might not be equipped to have uncomfortable conversations around them.

Everything here👇🏽 I make sure to ask every company I'm interviewing what d&i measures they have in place, not bc I'm expecting great numbers, but rather to see if they care enough to do the work of having specific ideas on how to improve.

This thread 👇 Provide detailed answers too, not just answers like "we're not perfect" or "we're better than the average tech company".

I wish I had known this in my last job search so I wanted to share my exp. When you’re interviewing or get an offer, ask what the levels are. Ask what level you’re being hired at. Negotiate to be the level you are. Ask how often it gets re-evaluated.

Taking a break from my break to tweet this, an inestigation that started out as a cute trademark story and quickly spiraled into a jaw-dropping hellhole of how SEO can reshape culture

If you’re looking for a job, check out ! Just had a call with founder and it’s clear she’s put a lot of care and thought into interviewing and vetting (and turning away!) companies. 💜
