Are Men Talking Too Much? is a genius new online tool designed to determine just that. Easily accessible on your desktop or your phone, the simple app allows you to hit a button when a man is talking, compared to when a woman is talking, which then kickstarts a timer.
As creator Cathy Deng explains, “when people talk about diversity and inclusion in tech, they often count bodies, what percentage of women at this company, what percentage of women at an event, etc. But inclusion is more than who’s in the room. Often, in rooms that seem diverse, men still dominate conversations to a large extent.”
Unfortunately the app doesn’t come with a button you can also use to eject the men who dominate meetings from their seats. Maybe version 2.0?
