What do you notice?
PS: also on Google+
As an individual, just by making these kinds of posts in the different threads you're doing a big thing by making it clear that you really do want involvement. Some of the things I do that work out well: participate in comments on threads led by women (and blogs like Geek Feminism); try to share at least as many posts by women than by men; also share posts with private circles where it's especially important to get diverse feedback; occasionally ask friends to ask questions for me.There are also things you can do as Architect for Google+. Treat diversity goals as you would any other business priority: design for them, track metrics, get familiar with the existing research, listen to feedback. +Mel Faulkner had some great points in a post almost three months ago at http://payattentionpeople.com/index.php/2011/07/21/why-women-users-are-important-for-google-plus/ ... Kathy Sierra gave some perspectives at http://www.talesfromthe.net/jon/?p=2918#comment-179952
We have diversity goals around hiring and so on, but for Google+ I wouldn't describe it in terms of bonuses or consequences around diversity per se: rather, those consequences are tied to the success of G+, and we are deeply, passionately aware that this success is going to come from getting women (and other groups, too! Diversity isn't just about gender) to feel at home here. Social networks live and die by how women use them. So it's not that we're having conversations about diversity; it's that these concerns drive our core designs and plans, and pervade all of our product conversations.
