Anna Filina's Blog:
Podcast About Sexism in Tech What I Learned
March 28, 2012 @ 12:03:33

Anna Filina has a new post to her blog about her participation in the "Sexism in Tech" podcast that was recently released on the "Voices of the ElePHPant" podcast.

I had the pleasure of discussing with fellow members of the PHP community a very sensitive topic: sexism in tech. I have been invited to a special episode of Voices of the ElePHPant with Elizabeth (Beth) Tucker Long, Elizabeth (Liz) Naramore and Laura Thomson. Cal Evans was the host. The podcast's page features links for some of the topics discussed. The purpose of this post is not to transcribe the podcast, but to share with you what I learned from this conversation and what I personally took away from it.

She talks about some of the comments that came up about the general tech culture and attitudes around women, some thoughts about "brand hygiene" and her opinions on wether the tech industry (or more specifically software development) will mature past this gender issue being a problem.
