In this issue, new articles critique the tech hiring process, present a systems-oriented view of diversity at tech companies, and explore race and representation in video games. We sit down for a long chat with Two Black Nerds, and look how Fund Club was built, plus advice for making your own diversity-in-tech initiative. Finally, an intimate look at starting a company while mentally ill. Photo CC-BY Sonny Abesamis, cropped and filtered.
