Ladies in tech, have you considered not letting us know you're female?

Re: Typical attitude from the unoppressed...

"Nothing is my problem, it's everyone else's."

In this case, it's your fault for being a woman, not his fault for being an insensitive idiot who cannot get the blood to the right brain as soon as he identifies "hmmm, woman". Fool. It reminds me of this saying that it's better to be a fool in silence than to open your mouth and confirm it.

What will it take for people to realise what I've known for years: diversity is actually beneficial? It's not just gender, by the way, there's race, skin, hair colour, dress sense, background - provided you have a management style that can turn the inevitable sparks into something positive it's almost causing shareholder harm if you don't actively set out to get mixed teams. The only thing they must share is dedication and enthusiasm for whatever they need to do, and that is explicitly the job of leadership. Yes, LEADERSHIP, not management. You manage kit, you lead people.

Anyway, Guinness :)
