#250posts24hrsAAPI - 11: Women Of Color In STEM Degrees (AKA Apple WTF?)

Saturday, May 20, 2017

I was reading this article on Apple a couple days ago and I had to think to myself how does that do anything for anyone including women of color to help with the equity in having women and women of color in tech?

Or is it all about the age versus gender?

While I think it could have to do with both, and no offense dads (because I'm one as well) - women are the ones who are having the babies and need to take time off and again - sorry dads - being able to be around your kids when they are younger - because kids need their moms in those early stages, especially if you know - they love the boob (like my child) - and it only helps in their development.

To me it makes a direct statement on the value of work and life balance and what should matter the most.

Which doesn't include family - and I wonder how that shapes the minds and the direction of young women who want to get into tech.

Sure this thought isn't completely fleshed out - but you get what I'm saying right?

In a way it says - don't think about having any children and creating a family and that tech doesn't want you.

Even though it says it does.
