This week, yet another conference was rightfully called out for ignoring their duty to curate a diversified speaker list. Then Erika wrote a fantastic blog post about it that you should really read.
Conference organizers and publishers, I do not think you are racist. And I do not think you are woman-haters. I think you are probably very nice people. I think you are good to your friends, your girlfriends, your wives, your children. I think you hire and treat your employees fairly and well.
I think you are lazy and irresponsible.
