BTW - I have spotted another diversity issue in Hyperledger:
We have too many Dans (O'Prey, Middleton, Selman) and not enough diversity of other first names. I am not sure how we work to address this, but it is food for thought!
Have a great weekend, everyone :-)
PS. Great input, everybody. So happy to see this discussion happening.

Kaliya,That is all awesome. Thank you so much for dropping those knowledge bombs on the Hyperledger community :-)I love the White Men as Full Diversity Partners approach. That makes so much sense to me. Female colleagues of mine in blockchain frequently highlight that the lazy default response of having the small number of very active women in any community "carrying the load" of our diversity issues makes very little sense. It is not the women or people of color who are the problem! Also, those individuals are busy trying to do their work and struggling against the tide in even doing that.I am a Community Ambassador for https://cryptochicks.ca because I think it is my responsibility as a man and a father and indeed just as a human being to do whatever I can to help to address the inclusion issues I see all the time in blockchain. There are so many overlapping cultural issues, but gender is obviously the most blatant inclusion issue, as I highlighted at the very start of this thread.
I am delighted to have triggered this discussion. I hope that people who are in a position to make a difference do take this issue seriously and do the work, as you suggest.
Best wishes! I loved your talk in SF at Decentralized Summit. Thanks for everything you do.
