Last week, I published an essay about the incredibly consistent pattern of my contacts consisting of 80% men – my address book, my Twitter followers, people I followed on Twitter, my LinkedIn network. Once I realized just how biased my network was, I resolved to improving it. I'm happy to report that every metric I focused on has improved since I started writing this essay about a month ago. There's a lot of room for improvement, but it's progress nonetheless.
Not sure I see the distinction. If in practice it means that conversations, opportunities, etc. are more available to those I maintain connections with, then the practical effect is that it results in a bias.
