Erica Baker is a Slack programmer and diversity activist who supported the no-platforming of Curtis Yarvin at LambdaConf.

Says Slack programmer Erica Baker, a prominent voice for greater diversity in tech, "I think if there were more diversity in the staff for LambdaConf, it wouldn't even be up for discussion." Baker and other activists argue that hosting a speaker with Yarvin's views sends a message minorities are not welcome and reflects a broader trend of pushback against diversity in tech, which could accelerate the departure of people of color from the field.
