Project Include breaks off relationships with Y Combinator

And that’s because Peter Thiel funded Trump’s campaign of hate, harassment, fear.

At Project Include, our mission is to give everyone a fair chance to succeed in the workplace. “Everyone” means all groups to us, but we draw a line at individuals who fund violence and hate. We believe differences should be bridged with tolerance and empathy, not amplified by rage and fear. Diversity and inclusion are the source of open discussions and better decisions.

Kudos to them. It takes a good amount of courage to stand up for your beliefs, and we totally support them. Y Combinator President, Sam Altman, is defending his business partner. It’s not easy, when there’s some personal relationship on the line. But we think that on such high level profiles have to be held accountable before the community, and Thiel’s not an employee, but a business partner.
