On Intersectionality in Tech

Smart article from Megan Rose Dickey at TechCrunch:

The intersection of racism, sexism, transphobia and other oppressive institutions influence perceptions and experiences of people in the tech industry. It also serves as a potential barrier to those who want to enter tech but can’t because the industry isn’t built with intersectionality in mind. In fact, the tech industry seems to turn a blind eye to it.

It’s worth noting that the vast majority of the world is not white, and certainly not white and male. The tech industry impacts the entire globe, but is designed and created by a body of people that is not representative of those it affects.
