No, You Don't Need to Know My Sex

This talk was given as part of Dev Bootcamp’s “Celebrating Women’s History Month: Empowering and Inspiring Lightning Talks” event in Chicago. In this lightning talk, I discuss when you should or shouldn’t ask for sex or gender on a form and how to ask the right way.
