❤️❤️❤️ thanks for sharing ❤️❤️❤️

Any time the women in tech put ourselves out there, we are putting ourselves at risk. Especially the brave women who stand up the toxic masculinity.

👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

 

❤️❤️❤️ Your post inspired me so much to be brave and post this. I almost wasn't going to.

 

It is shaming how we (men) try to be superior in everything, is not about knowledge, it is about domination, a stupid domination. Your efforts to teach something aways being contested, it is so unfair. Women making a real effort to teach and spread knowledge, men making a show to exhibit (doubtful) knowledge, the main difference of who wants others to grow e who wanna applause.

Thank you for sharing your power, strong and great actions to deal with this!

 

Not the point of this post at all, but I am super glad I made the "good example" category. Thanks for sharing your story! I especially loved this part:

Actually, care about women, invest in inclusion efforts instead of just tokenizing them and asking them to speak at your event. Have a CoC for their conferences, Slack groups, and events.

 

Yeah, I actually confused someone on Twitter because he thought I was offended by what you said and I was like no no, that's not what was bad. It was the dude's response to that.

 
 

In my career, I have had more women given me more opportunities to learn and grow. The ratio has been 7:3 if not more. To a point, when I look for an opportunity, the make up of the team was more important than the salary.

Thanks for sharing.

 

Just want to bring my full encouragement so you can keep building things, helping others and making an impact on this industry. Being self-taught is a huge merit on itself and I know that skill will keep on getting further developed. So yeah congrats and keep it up :)

 

Thanks, Juan! I'm very proud of how far I've come!

 

I am so glad that there are more and more people like you on the (tech) scene, because now men and women alike have even more interesting and inspiring people to read and follow. :)
