When funders start asking for a diversity report trust me this will stop! There are some field that you would expect challenges… but there is no reason for a lack of diversity in #fashiontech in NYC especially in the supply chain.. Apparently some things cannot be left to human “decency”!
SMH… you know that point in a video came when you think you’ve made some progress and you turn and see all the demons AGAIN. This is BS.
check http://www.ofakind.com/designers This is NYC you cannot tell me tha tthey cannot find suitable diverse “of a kind” designers in NY or the broader country.. but in NY SMH. I also know some have called them on this before! The irony is I went to the site almost comfortable that a NY city #fashiontech stratup will reflect diversity.
@mashstartups #Startupdiversity when funders start asking for a diversity report this will stop! I went to the site while answering a question on my personal Fb page on the role my race has played in the "opportunity" and recognition in "Fashiontech." (will post on that tomorrow) But I wanted to show some diversity… if any I trusted a NYTech site would reflect tech diversity! SMH… too much to hope for. I checked the incubators and accelerators, the confernec panels… So sad! ..
