Change Together: A Diversity Guidebook for Startups and Scaleups
From the early days of TechGirls Canada (TGC) work, whenever we would present at a media engagement or keynote or event panel, for the following few days we would have our inboxes full of requests and questions from business owners in tech, with an exchange that was always some slight variation of this:
“They realized now what they hadn’t for many years, that their workplaces were indeed very homogenous . They now had daughters, and that alone made them think twice about upholding ideas about whom they fathomed doing certain types of work versus not—and they wanted to do better.”
* Read: mostly straight, able-bodied white men
Their earnest (albeit unintentionally myopic) requests over the years made one thing abundantly clear to our team: that there was nowhere for us to guide them to where they didn’t need a huge budget and a sizable HR team to even engage with the notion of diversifying their organizations. As a result, most of these well-intentioned individuals would just not start this work at all.
