In recent weeks, uproar over Silicon Valley's alleged bias against conservatives has intensified—from Project Veritas secretly filming Twitter employees to fired Google engineer James Damore suing his former employer for allegedly discriminating against whites, males, and conservatives at a company that is 69 percent white and 56 percent male.

Now Lincoln Network, a right-leaning political group for tech workers, wants to enter the fray as a voice of reason—armed with data.

"I think everyone agrees that this topic is not going away," says Lincoln Network cofounder Garrett Johnson, a former Rhodes Scholar who sold his Y Combinator-backed messaging startup in 2016. Johnson says Lincoln Network wants to "constructively engage in this conversation," in hopes of improving the work environment at tech companies.
