Update on Julie Horvath's Departure — from Github (github.com)

over 7 years ago from Anthony Dines, Senior Interaction Designer @ Google

    It's sad and pretty damning to Github that it had to come to a senior member of staff resigning and going public about it before anything was done.

    This tweet by Horvath is relevant:

    I'm glad it's being addressed now, but don't congratulate and praise an org that knew and refused to act for over a year.

      This. It's really strange to me how many people are just like "Great job Github, you're handling this so well!" When in reality it's because they haven't been handling it well for over a year that we're all hearing about it now.

        Couldn't agree more. People are rushing to pat GitHub on the back for this update, but it's been a long time coming. I really do hope this means substantial change for them.
