When asked "What is the number one thing men can do to be allies of women in tech?", Nielsen responded "Just realize that anyone can be a great tech, even though you don’t see many of us women in the industry, we have excellent skills. Try to shed your unconscious biases that if it’s a woman they can’t know what they are doing.
