Conscious bias

If you’re going to ask me to appear at an event on a panel, please note the following:

Before committing, I will only speak on panels which have an equal gender and ethnicity split**.

If you want me to write an article, interview me for a podcast, or speak at an event I WILL ask you about the gender and ethnicity split of the other contributors. If it’s unbalanced, I’m likely to say no.

Change won’t happen unless you change yourselves.

**Edit

Following a comment from Donald Clark, this should say ‘equal gender and representative ethnicity’.  An equal ethnicity split is probably impossible; equal to what? Happy to correct.
