Tech Companies Shouldn't Treat Race and Gender Separately

Brooke Hunterwas quoted in Fortune about intersectionality in tech: 

"It’s not something that’s been absorbed into the mainstream,” says Brooke Hunter, the chief of staff and director of strategic initiatives for New America’s Open Technology Institute, of intersectionality. But Hunter is starting to hear the term used more and more. “It’s now hitting the employer side and the conference circuit,” she says.
The problem with focus on only race or only gender is that minority women often fall through the cracks, Hunter explains. She brings the Anita Borg Institute’s annual gathering of women in tech, the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing, which had no black female speakers headlining, yet had a number of white men.
