Speak Up, But But Not Too Loudly
- I was really happy that not only did DroidCon NYC have a COC, but they arranged a diversity panel/workshop hybrid and invited the whole community to get involved.
- It was a positive experience (not without hiccups that I'll describe below). And I sketchnoted my experience.
- That's why I was so dismayed to read this in last week's Technically Speaking:
- "We’re inspired by @corey_latislaw storming the stage at Droidcon NYC to do a little womansplaining when men were advocating going to HR as the answer to harassment. Read about it in Chiu-Ki’s DroidCon NYC write up! We don’t in general advocate audience members getting on stage and seizing the microphone, but as a keynote speaker Corey had more power than most in the audience, and that advice has the potential to be extremely harmful [tweet it]."
