When I decided to start working in tech, I knew that someday I’d find my place in the informal women-in-tech backchannel warning system.
It seems that I’ve already reached a place where I can practice two kinds of post-conference networking: the standard mild awkwardness of “Hello! Remember those interests we share? I think you are a professionally interesting person!” but also “Hey, heads up–I’ve been made aware that a person you socialized with has a history of sexually assaulting incapacitated women, and thought you might want to know.”
I knew I’d get here sooner or later.
I wish I’d been able to finish my first internship before I did.
