Our guest this week is Sarah Mei. She joins us to talk through a recent article she authored on the DevMynd blog titled Mind the Gap - why we’re missing our best chance for gender parity. We discuss our innate subconscious assumptions and prejudices towards one another, how we alienate women from the developer communities, and what we can do to step across this gap and make a conscious effort to combat those assumptions. Sarah shares stories about her work in trying to bring more diversity into the coding community, the credibility gap, what she's learned from starting RailsBridge, how to reduce bias while searching for employees and conference speakers, and more.

Sarah is also the Founder of RailsBridge, the Director of Ruby Central, and a Chief Consultant at DevMynd.
