"As diversity progress in Silicon Valley stalls, advocates call for a new approach," the L.A. Times' Tracey Lien writes from San Francisco.

The big picture: "[W]hen companies pay money or lip service to diversity initiatives but don’t track whether those initiatives work, people start to feel like their time is being wasted ... Attrition of women remains high. And the number of black and Latino tech workers has by some counts actually declined."
