@FranoisTheveno1 @LaurentSciorti1 @Malbrunot Oui enfin en prog le problème c'est surtout les types comme vous. "our results show that women's contributions tend to be accepted more often than men's. However, women's acceptance rates are higher only when they are not identifiable as women." https://t.co/86sFP8hJBo

@winstonsmithros Por acá un artículo que me compartió la colega @tecnochamana sobre diferencias de género a la hora de escribir código https://t.co/bwOdutij0p y por acá otro texto escrito por una mujer programadora https://t.co/Gw0tqkSQ5h para saber un poco más del tema. :-)
@_jacob_chang_ @abbyfuller @EmmaWedekind Since i know the reply will be well thought out and request proof.... https://t.co/vLORw0fsFT
@Fallenour @__h4zy @robertchrk @aloria By the way here’s your research: https://t.co/M6gxIZTvbe “our results show that women's contributions tend to be accepted more often than men's. However, women's acceptance rates are higher only when they are not identifiable as women.”

@akivaw @TitusFCVA @godmotherNesu @kjthoward_RS @blueobsidian @dalstondavid @simonleggsays @NuubRS @duolingo Study on gender bias in software dev demonstrated that women's dev work was seen as more competent than men's when their gender wasn't obvious, and as less so when their gender was obvious: https://t.co/ZIbLXqSauD The orchestra strategy (blind assessment of skill) can apply.
@Mando1392 @CathKikuchi Il y a votre ressenti, et il y a les testing et les stats: - A CV identique, les F - recrutées et - payées : https://t.co/N488gQuoEp - les résultats des F moins acceptés : https://t.co/KGVZxPXlE1 - discriminations dès l'embauche : https://t.co/9f2tUVaaLq Il y a plein d'autres ex
@xanas3712 @jordanbpeterson Regarding point 1: here's a study showing that despite having the same technical aptitude as men, women are perceived as less skilled developers - e.g.: https://t.co/Pp66pNq0hZ https://t.co/sIqaAecL55 (Tech is one of the most male-dominated industries so it's a good example)
