I don’t whine very often.
Or at least tell myself that.
Though today I am going whine about people whining.
And then proceed to try to fix instead of continuing to whine.
The whining that I am whining about is people complaining about the lack of diversity on panels.
Panels organized by volunteers.
Panels publicized by volunteers.
Instead of complaining, you could recruit diverse people to speak on these panels.
Or you could organize a panel with diverse speakers.
Whining is always cheap and easy, but rarely valuable.
Fixing is valuable even if often neither cheap nor easy. I’d rather be thought of as valuable. Wouldn’t you?
