Always work towards having adequate balance. This doesn't mean work and life have to be separate entities, but do consider the threshold when one does not benefit the other.
In an age where humans are no longer compelled to move from place to place for survival, the fact that we do so anyway says a lot about the kind of mental awakening a geographical shift can provide.
The change for more diversity must start from the bottom just like people going into the industry are required to do. So, the first and most significant step would be to make more paid internships.
While we focus on the present and the future of equal rights, we must acknowledge that we aren't the first people to demand equality and many of our freedoms were provided by strong women of the past who deserve to be remembered in these kinds of celebrations.
