I see more Diversity in software testing than among developers in general. Too bad that the ratio among developers is low – but good for software testing :-). It is proof to me that Software testing is a skill of many skills and that people from different backgrounds come together to make the testing groups diverse. Some come with strong domain expertise and user experiences others with people skills – and others with tech skills on par with the best. How to get more Diversity in software testing and tech – Miss more in the pink aisle perhaps.
So I probably need both a question mark and exclamation point in the title…

you might find initial engagement and strengths in a team of like-minded people – the team with the right mix of types for the context has the best options and is likely to be more successful. Said in other words a team consisting of only one ”type” would be good at only a few things and not so good in the rest.

Comment from female tester: I want more men in testing! Testers are mostly women – with low salaries and low prestige. More men will boost salary levels and prestige. #interesting
