I have been inspired by the Salesforce Women in Tech Diversity calls recently (which are awesome, and you should join the group in the Success Community), so I thought I'd share a few recent articles that have furthered my learning, as a white person, on the issues of diversity, racism, privilege, and how this relates to what I can do as a white person.
One thing you can do: follow all of these amazing people on social media to continue to educate yourself!
