📃 DIVERSITY IN TECH NEWS

It is true that we are seeing more diverse and inclusive workforces in the tech industry. However, there is undoubtedly still work that needs to be done. Having a diverse team is important as they offer crucial viewpoints towards developing an inclusive product, but this is only possible when the systems and technology used on a daily basis are inclusive. In this article, Debbie Ferguson reveals that fundamental platforms like email and HR are still failing trans and nonbinary employees.
