If you’ve been out of the loop, here’s a list of articles covering the recently refreshed debate on gender-bias (or “subtle sexism” as it’s been dubbed) in Montreal’s tech community. We think it’s an important topic (obviously) so please chime in with your thoughts, because we know you’ve got plenty of them. Be sure to check the lively discussion in the comments of each too, plenty of food for thought.
