Hi Everyone, a bit off topic but would love to hear some thoughts and suggestions.
So I have recently moved into a hacker house, there are 18 of us here and we mostly working in tech/have our own startups. And full transparency we're all boys (unintentionally).
The house itself is amazing, it's a bit like a playground for adults, everyone is always experimenting with new things, e.g a few of the housemates fix motorbikes together, go to the gym together, we collaborate on side projects or help each other with our startups etc.
But the elephant in the room is that we are still 18 guys and have had feedback that the house seems a bit rundown and almost fraternity like. We're looking to overhaul some things in terms of making it more inclusive. Our ideas right now include more regular cleaning, but also maybe some interior design decorating and a bit more mindfulness of conversations in public areas of the house.
How would you approach this challenge to make things more inclusive?
