Picture this: you're a software engineer at a prestigious tech company, and one of only two women in your department. Frustration is mounting, and you're asked to be on a panel at a recruiting event. When a young woman asks if the company has a supportive environment for women in engineering, your male colleagues jump in to speak on your behalf. What would you do? 🤔 Well, one woman decided to speak her truth and expose the reality of her experience. But was it the right move? Let's dive into the story. 🍿
