In 2014 the diversity and inclusion conversation in tech reached an all time high and as we kick off 2015 the topic doesn’t seem to be losing any steam; which is great as a lot of change is needed. Below are some of the more recent articles about diversity in tech that I believe everyone should read. The articles range from women in tech, sexism, under represented minorities in tech, the wealth and access gap, to defining what diversity actually means. If I missed any recent articles, let me know in the comments.
