Craig Newmark is the founder of craigslist.

His latest venture, craigconnects, helps drive peer-to-peer, grassroots civic engagement and philanthropy to support veterans and military families; trustworthy journalism; voting rights and women in tech.

Fifty-three years after the Equal Pay Act and supposedly the advancement of women s rights in the workplace, Silicon Valley still has the feel of a fraternity.

Jonathan Beninson recently shared a great post on Medium about structuring mentor/mentee relationships.

I figure that if you ve done well, as Kevin Spacey says, it s your job to send the elevator back down — meaning we need to be intentional about opening our doors to women and helping them expand their networks and clout.

This is about fairness.
