#bestofdev on Inclusion

Dev.to has become a great home for diversity, equity and inclusion content related to the tech industry, including this year's great #shecoded/#theycoded series for International Women's Day. It's spread out across a lot of tags, though, so with the help of the dev.to admins, we're working to make it a nice, fancy tag home under #inclusion.

We (Carly, Fen, and Jess) are three developer friends who care a lot about Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) and work to drive it as part of our day jobs as well as through meetups and online organizing. Today, we've put together a quick round-up of some of our favorite DEI-related articles on Dev.to so far!

Those are some of our favorites! What are yours? (From here or elsewhere!) Are there any DEI topics you wish there was more written about?

I just wanted to say great post and admins are keeping an eye on this discussion. As we continue to improve our moderation tooling and processes, we appreciate the great work of everyone working so hard to keep this community kind, inclusive and constructive.

Amazing job, Carly, Fen, Jess and some other amazing folks who have been here from early days.

Carly, Fen, and Jess! We are so appreciative of the DEI work you all do and champion for the developer community. Thanks so much for putting this list together and for continuing to bring DEI issues to light on DEV. I know it's challenging work and can be emotionally exhausting/triggering for all participants (those who publish, comment, and read!) so thank you all for your consistent presence here.

Big +1s on Rachel and Massimo's articles. They're really well written and provide great points.

@kmelve wrote a great article with a lot of solid points and was a good response/follow-up for men to Patricia Aas' post "Survival Tips for Women in Tech".

I'm a big fan of the accessibility posts we have on the tag page. @lkopacz had a great post about alt text:

@maxwell_dev had a great post recently on accessibility:
