Action Alert | David Brooks Should Sign the GenderAvenger Speaker Pledge

In his recent piece, "Speaking as a White Male…", New York Times columnist David Brooks stated, “When you put together a panel discussion or a work team, even on a subject like oncology, you don’t want to have a bunch of white males sitting up there. We know that something valuable will be lost.” We agree wholeheartedly and wonder if, as a frequent panelist on various news programs, Brooks would sign the GenderAvenger Pledge stating he will not serve as a panelist when there are no women speakers included. Are you in, David?


If @nytdavidbrooks ‏truly believes “something valuable will be lost” when a panel is made up of only white males, he should take a personal stand and sign the #GenderAvenger Pledge.
