I want to echo something I said in the episode and share something I call the "Althea Test".
There's usually only one thing I need to know to get an initial sense of the inclusion maturity level of the company.
It's a question I pose to the engineering leaders with 2 layers of reports (i.e., their direct reports have people who report to them): Directors of Engineering, VPE's, etc.
* Do they know their names?
* Can they list at least two contributions they made in the last quarter?
* Do you see them doing your job?
That almost always means that environment also supports other underrepresented groups (LGBTQ, Latinx, etc.)
So, how does your organization fare under the Althea Test?
