This article from Tech Crunch chops it up about the terms "affirmative action" and whether that's happening in tech hiring. Straight and to the point with an interesting take by Task Rabbit CEO, Stacy Brown-Philpot.

But given that our society is not set up that way, thanks to things like years of systemic racism and discrimination, affirmative action is still necessary."
