Practical Diversity at Thinking Digital Women
Thanks for having me to speak as part of the inaugural Thinking Digital Women. Here are the slides and the materials / resources mentioned during the talk.
Tools Mentioned in This Talk
- Peggy McIntosh’s excellent Unpacking the White Privilege Knapsack < you need to read this. Now. Please.
- John Scalzi’s explanation of how privilege is about the “difficulty setting” of your life – and straight white male is the lowest difficulty setting
- Harvard’s implicit bias tool < use to understand yourself better and tune your behaviour
I usually do a longer version of this talk including a bunch of stuff on how to lead and develop multi-disciplinary teams; the Agile People Sweden team kindly published the video of me keynoting on Practical Diversity at their conference last October in case of interest.
