As diversity progress in Silicon Valley stalls, advocates call for a new approach

Five years after efforts to increase diversity in Silicon Valley began, progress has been slow and what some call "diversity fatigue" has set in. Activists are disappointed and tech workers are frustrated that little has been achieved.

In a survey by Atlassian, respondents appeared to be tuning out of the diversity conversation, and this article points out that in tech companies around the country, leaders with good intentions are adopting practices that are frustrating even the most ardent supporters of diversity and inclusion. So what can be done?
