So I'm interviewing for some dev help here in the Boston area and while I'm talking to plenty of qualified guys, they are all just that - white, middle aged guys, just like me & the rest of my team.

I am desperately seeking a woman and/or person of color to interview! Any ideas where I should look? Any groups here in the area I can talk to? Check out the jobs here:

@jdarnold Oh, I thought about something else: If your team already is heavily homogeneous, it may be counter-productive to try to hire just one member from a minority. Ideally, the team should have been diverse from the start, but in the current state, it is unclear to me if hiring a single diverse member will produce a net positive outcome because the team itself may just look too hostile to the new member for them to fully express themselves.

Again, great intentions, but possibly challenging outcome.
