White People’s Fear of Discussing Race Holding Back Diversity Progress in Silicon Valley? – Blerds

Discussing race in profitable environments is a must, so says Maxine Williams of Facebook, one worldwide social media entity. Why is it critical to clear safe spaces for African Americans? Technology affords all the ability to work in groups or independently. For minorities, it is the option to work in healthy spaces devoid of most race-based micro-stressors that recent studies claim contribute to, if not cause, high blood pressure, diabetes, and other stress related illnesses. Another plus it the potential for above average revenue — if you are dedicated. Will technology become the leveling playing field for African Americans? It might well be.

Facebook’s global head of diversity, Maxine Williams, is taking a different approach to addressing the discussion of race in Silicon Valley, and, according to her, there’s no room for people to be sensitive about the subject.
