Whats New?


When presenters at the Crunchies, an annual technology award show, announced Monday night in San Francisco that the software company Slack—an internal-messaging program used by companies—had won the Fastest Rising Startup Award, most people expected two, maybe three white dudes to walk onstage to accept the award.

But when Slack’s name was called, four black women walked up instead.

When they got there, they explained who they were and why they were there: to send a powerful message about women of color who are engineers in the rising tech space.

Go Slack!
