Me too, and I'm pretty sure that that's the real issue, anyway.
But still, I do think that if supporting diversity is a cultural
value at the IETF (and do I have a more concrete description of
what that means? No, I do not) it's something that participants
can take home with them, and that's a positive thing.
I do think we should be more aggressive about leadership
development activities, not just with occasional newcomers
orientations but by making more mentoring opportunities
available to relative newcomers (of both genders).
