On leadership and male allies...

This post, for some reason, didn't get published in January 2017.  So, a year later, here goes.  A lot has changed and a lot has not. ================== After a rather brutal 5 month release at work with long hours and pressure, I just returned from a much-...

All of a sudden, I'm getting "Diversity"-hiring pings from random companies...
