A #YesAllWomen Call to the Edtech World

A #YesAllWomen Call to the Edtech World

Jun 2, 2014

A CALL TO ACT: In the world of education, it's often difficult to talk about and deal with harsh realities. This week, the #edtech landscape saw a brave woman step forth to share a harrowing experience which carries powerful lessons for everyone--male and female. Ariel Norling shares her story of sexual harassment and assault at one of the most popular annual edtech conferences in the U.S. It's a gritty, gut-wrenching read. We echo her call to take a stand against injustice.

Editor's note: The original post referenced above was taken down by the author, who posted an explanation here. Our hope is that this debate spurs everyone reflects on the level of respect that all people are due--and that they should accord to others--at conferences or in other gatherings. Let's watch out for each other, people!
