Building for GenderAvenger: Dan Schultz reflects on being a man working for better gender representation

By Dan Schultz

I got involved with GenderAvenger in 2014 shortly before the launch of their first tool, the GA Tally. It started off as a volunteer effort to help my good friend Matt Stempeck, and it seemed to be a great cause. Over the past five years, my relationship with GenderAvenger has evolved, and it has shaped the questions I ask myself when I walk into a room, consume information, and organize new projects of my own.

The tools, networks, and types of content we're creating at GenderAvenger lead people to call out poor gender representation and recognize success. We're using tech to amplify observations about whose voices are in the room, and we're making those observations harder to ignore.
