When I heard you speak today, my biggest take away was ‘Not right. Not wrong. Not good. Not bad. Just different.’ Your research presents both sides of gender culture in a neutral light. It made me realize that I have been adopting the strategy of trying to ‘act like a man,’ and it is not making me as productive as my peers (who are all male). It just opened my eyes to the fact that performing tasks and interacting with people in my natural way is not bad, just different. I think that is a huge message that both women and men in the tech industry especially need to hear, and that was just one aspect of your talk.
