  14. 14. At networking events, I introduce myself to people who don’t look like me. I attend events for underrepresented groups, to listen, learn, and network. When meeting someone at a tech event, I assume they’re technical. @betterallies  CTA: Diversify your network

  23. 23. Raise your hand if you agree: I seldom hesitate to give difficult feedback.
  24. 24.  CTA: Give Equal Feedback @betterallies I give direct feedback. I don't ease up just to prevent hurt feelings. I focus on business impact, what to keep doing, and how to improve. I share the expertise I see & skills to learn. I write reviews of the same length for men & women.
