TGIF! This week we read news from across the board: diversity reports, political advocacy, management polls, and more.

Check back at the end of each week for our Friday finds.

Here’s what we’re reading – July 13

  • Read: Spotify diversity and inclusion report not shy about room for improvement by Valerie Bolden-Barrett for HR Dive.

In Spotify’s most recent report, they focused on getting “real about [their] current status.”
  • Read: Engineering: From Ignorance to Passion – A Reflection on Advocating with SWE by Ranjana Chandramouli for All Together’s SWE Blog.

  • Read: Are women better team leaders than men? by WERKLABS shared by Women 2.0. This piece dives into the data from Gallup’s “State of the American Manager: Analytics and Advice for Leaders.” The research shows that women make better managers than men. It’s a broad generalization, but the findings are fascinating.
  • Read: How to become a developer: A cheat sheet by Alison DeNisco Rayome for TechRepublic. While it’s not bootcamp, this piece is a great and thorough how-to guide to salaries, skills, and programming languages that would benefit any new developer.
