Trump's Win Is Making Tech Care More About Diversity - According To A New Survey
Yeah, seems like an alternative-universe headline, but a study conducted by Atlassian shows that of the 1,400 tech workers surveyed across the United States, forty-eight percent say they care more about diversity after the election.
