Complaints about tech workplace unfairness, inequity, and exploitation are routine on social media. People go public because they feel they have no other recourse than to appeal to their peers directly. Tweets and posts about these incidents receive hundreds or thousands of retweets because the stories resonate. But even more people don’t go public out of fear or a sense that there’s no help to be found.
It’s powerful to be able to share your story. It’s powerful to tell your peers that you feel for them and you want to help them. We seek to cultivate this power and put it in the hands of everyone, not just the confident and well-connected. And we look forward to a time when this power is connected to organized power in the workplace itself.
