Many of us complain on this platform about unpleasant brand experiences, whether to seek restitution or simply vent publicly. I'd like to think we're equally prepared to leverage our networks in recognition of brands doing things the right way. Who deserves your kudos?
I'll start
Purely from product evangelism, creative innovation, and CRM perspective, @benandjerrys has a sweet spot in my list: everything they do demonstrates humanity, compassion, care, and commitment to quality.
Speaking of compassion, @patagonia deserves its place as the company with the best reputation (…). Their commitment to quality products & people sustains a loyal user base roaming the world happily promoting their not-inexpensive wares (or is that "wears"?)

Texas is on the verge of becoming the biggest state to bar colleges and universities from using diversity, equity and inclusion to hire more diverse faculty & staff

Sen Brandon Creighton, R-Conroe, says “we’re putting a bow on the legislation & it’s headed to the governors desk” Image
Still waiting to see the deal myself, but in general if bars public universities from having #DEI offices or DEI staff. Creighton stresses this is all about hiring and staff NOT about student recruitment or admissions policies
State @SenRoyceWest asked a series of questions about the perception and how it could hurt Texas schools recruit students. Image

Students from 🏠 with annual income <$50K were half as likely to be accepted to med school as students with 🏠 annual income >$200K. We all knew this was a problem, but the magnitude is shocking. We all have a role in addressing this, #MedTwitter… /1
Students from lower income 🏠 are at an educational disadvantage that begins well before college. A concrete intervention: volunteer to tutor students. I did this multiple times per month the whole time all 3 of my kids were in elem school.… /2
All of us in #MedTwitter should be teaching our kids to use their privilege to lift other students. A concrete example: one of my kids had the opportunity in 5th grade to do an independent study in which he learned to code via his amazing public school teacher, Mrs. Stansbury. /3

Of all the allopathic (MD) and osteopathic (DO) medical schools in the United States, the majority have questions on their 2022-2023 application cycle applications that relate to “DEI” issues. Typically, the question is: “How would you contribute to the diversity of our medical……

🧵“This escalating battle for control over free expression in education should worry us all,” said PEN America CEO @SuzanneNossel in remarks before the House Committee on Education & the Workforce’s Subcommittee on Higher Education & Workforce Development.…
Nossel: "The university campus is the incubator of democratic citizenship and the breeding ground for leaders in every sector of society. If we don’t get free speech and open discourse right on campus, we won’t get it right in the media, the courts, or out on the streets." (2/x)
Nossel: "At PEN America we argue that the essential drive to render American campuses more diverse, equitable, and inclusive need not—and must not—come at the expense of robust, uncompromising protections for free speech and academic freedom." (3/x) #DEI #FreeSpeech #Education

#Diversity #equity #Inclusion #DEI And, of course, it's all about the money. Just like #MeToo . Just like #TimesUp and it is all performative and divisive, not inclusive. Profiteering 101. @StanfordLaw COME CLEAN NOW on the entire DEI program and……
@UndercoverMoth9 - once again DEI is all about the money and contracts. Anyone else notice that on April 4, 2011 when Joe Biden introduced the unregulated "Dear Colleague" Title IX letter that all this profiteering racket started, admin swelled, fees swelled, public paid and ROI?
And if you look up Diversity, Equity & Inclusion - what company comes up first? McKinsey - a Management Consultancy Company. When are kids going to get an education instead of being targets for profiteering? @McKinsey ?…

1/ Black professors are less than 5 percent of all tenured professors in the U.S. I am a Black tenured Associate Professor.

So read this. A university, which I will name University A (school of public health) expressed interest in me joining as faculty. Image

2/ University A is not ranked in the top 30 of R1s. My current institution is ranked in the top 20.

University A told me that I would not be able to be an Associate Professor or tenured if I joined as faculty even though I already hold that position. Image

3/ University A said that I would “need two R01s” in order to be tenured and and Associate Professor, despite the well established NIH funding gap.

Black investigators are nearly half as like to get funding compared the White investigators. Image

Joining @SCURLScottish and @cigscot for their EDI Network Conference featuring @infogamerist and #EthicalMetadata and a Keynote from DeLa Dos, Senior Director, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion @ARLnews
Ellie Muniandy, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Officer, @natlibscot speaks eloquently about #EDI Workforce Development and how implementing EDI requires a deep and meaningful change in perspective and working culture #SCURLEDI
@natlibscot Organisational culture change can take a long time - there are different levels to implementing EDI from 'quick wins' in libraries like mandatory EDI training for all, to long-term objectives like changing the way we talk about and describe our collections. #SCURLEDI

A thread for your #Education edification. A tale of #SchoolShootings #MTSS #RestorativeJustice #CRT #DEI (better than CRT because it includes gender ideology! Reee!).

It will appear that school shootings have more in common than a gun, a lunatic, and a therapist.
MTSS stands for Multi Tiered System of Supports, and goes hand-in-hand with DEI, restorative justice, gender ideology, and the rest of the indoctrination tools that are destroying USA schools.

The list.
Used this list, so graciously provided by the angsty writers at EdWeek, to go through a list of "school shootings" in 2022
As you can see, the list was full of shootings that took place on school property, but not during school hours/students… Image

BREAKING: Ron DeSantis just held a press conference in Sarasota, Florida w/ Christopher Rufo, the engineer of the right wing panic over #criticalracetheory & newly appointed Trustee at @NewCollegeofFL...
DeSantis claims that "the dominant view of higher ed is to impose ideological conformity & political activism" rather than providing a foundation for students to think for themselves.

DeSantis: dominant view is manifested in #DEI & #CRT & constitute a drain on resources...
DeSantis claims:
-requiring diversity statements is akin to taking a political oath.
-Professors that vow to treat everyone the same are punished.
-a lot of money is spent on #DEI in higher ed despite schools reporting less than 1% of budget spent on diversity initiatives.

I would love to get feed back from the African American community on the rise of DEI.

Has anyone taken a look at Twitter's various rules? They were clearly written by Marxist adherents to #DEI, #CRT, and #ESG. In my opinion, @elonmusk should scrap them and start over from scratch.…

Twitter's current rules expressly categorize users as either 'protected' or 'unprotected' and enforce rules differently based on those categories. Interestingly, white men are the ONLY unprotected group on Twitter. What if we treat everyone the same @elonmusk?

Twitter's current rules are NEVER equally enforced. Why not just get rid of rules that Twitter isn't going to enforce universally? For example, people call for the death of Russians and the assassination of Putin all the time on Twitter but it is allowed. Why?

The push for #education privatization #schoolvouchers is now a cruel update to longer efforts to separate single out and separate children. @carolburris @Network4pubEd @NPEaction

Heritage announced its #EducationFreedom strategy early in 2022:
And Heritage has been branching out on this tactic by adopting itself as a pseudo sex-science shop

The goal here is to underscore differences as “choice” and “values” #lgbtqia #LGBTQ
With longstanding antipathy to #DEI baked into an #EducationFreedom agenda that in their telling is good for kids of color

So much of edu-Right is cult-like.

❌ First is the weird hero-worship of figures like Bush, @BetsyDeVos, @DougDucey even lesser names like Rhee, and collection of Broad-supts #education #privateschool @DianeRavitch @NPEaction @PV4PS @mrobmused

❌ Second are the villains, which every extremist group/cult needs to project its weird grievance on

For the edu-Right it’s
✔️#teachersunions specifically @rweingarten
✔️#woke/#DEI / #CRT “agenda”
✔️ Trans-kids/ #LGBTQ adults
✔️ who the hell knows what else

❌ Third, related to villains is stoked fear:
✔️ perceived threat to way of life
✔️ fear of “the other”
✔️ imagined threats to own children coupled with willingness to actually put them at risk

1/ In 2020 the University of Tennessee, Knoxville announced it was creating “diversity action plans” as part of “a sustained push to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion.” The plans contained various objectives that threaten free speech and academic freedom. 👇
2/ Objectives included requirements that current or prospective faculty submit statements demonstrating commitment to #DEI, mandatory syllabus statements affirming DEI, DEI-based course assessments, and bias reporting systems.
3/ FIRE wrote UT Knoxville in September calling on it to eliminate the plans’ speech-restrictive components, or to at least ensure they are implemented in a manner that respects students’ and faculty members’ expressive rights.…

This is something I’ve wanted to say to well-meaning liberal white women who are in senior positions for a while. I’m saying it now because my voice has been freed after winning the book award recently.
Dear liberal white women: I know that often you try to support and promote women of color as part of your commitment to #antiracism. It is great that you do this, but:
You need to understand that women of color are not a monolith, and that white supremacy in many institutions makes some women of color fight against others women of color to gain the attention, validation and praise of senior white people.
