Today we all received an email from PASS's president Tom LaRock (blog/@SQLRockstar):
No one - regardless of gender/ethnicity/anything else - should have to suffer from an uncomfortable environment or even worse outright physical or mental abuse, especially in a professional setting. When something like this does happen it is on all of us to speak up to try to end the situation and to prevent it from recurring.
I commit to personally working harder at this - when we see something unacceptable happen, Speak Up!
At the end of the day, we are all responsible for ourselves *and* for each other in our #sqlfamily.
As always, my $.02
