Building an inclusive culture is a point of pride at Table XI. But when we look around the room at our leadership meetings, it’s clear we haven’t done near enough to make our team truly representative of our society.
Women and people of color leave tech at a higher rate, often citing uncomfortable work cultures and lack of opportunities for growth. We can’t be a part of that problem. For BIPOC, Black and Indigenous People of Color, to feel truly a part of Table XI and see a path to leadership, we have to make space for them. Anti-racist talk isn’t enough, we need to take action and keep taking it — even if we trip up, even if things quiet down around us.
