I’m on a lot of panels at conferences. Rarely are they all white men (anymore). If they are, then I refuse to take part.
It seems that the same thing happens in the tech world, and Cord Jefferson (a white man) is sick of it:
After watching this happen again and again, something occurred to me: Why don’t the white men who are asked to engage in this nonsense simply stop doing it? The boycott is a protest with a long history of success. If white, male elites started saying, “I will not participate in your panel, event, or article if it is all about white men,” chances are these panels and articles would quickly dry up—or become more diverse.
