I was hesitant to post this story, but I feel as though there is a young female resident out there who needs to see this today. #WomenInMedicine #BlackWomeninMedicine 1/
I'm a chief surgery resident, meaning I lead teams of interns, residents, and students. But even after years at my institution, people sometimes have a hard time seeing me as a doctor. 2/
While my white male colleagues can wear scrubs and patients and staff will call them doctor even if they're a student, I always wear my white coat. I even personally purchased one with thick fabric and fancy buttons with my institution's logo to look as legit as possible. 3/

Brief thoughts on the meaning of words: #diversity, #equity, and #inclusion. (1)
The use of the word “diversity” to mean “homogeneity of thought” was a brilliant and highly effective strategy to silence and shame different opinions. (2)
Same goes for “equity,” meaning making up for past injustices, as opposed to “equality,” which means treating people equally. (3)

But thinking about it - it all really comes down to one thing, a conflict that affects all world civilizations.

That is the conflict between personal liberty and control by elites.

Jews are the ultimate example of a people who refuses to conform, who insists on its right to dissent from the orthodoxy & power of the elites in every era. 3) #Jews #nonconformists

@PriyamvadaGopal They been #gaslighting us with statistics showing 0.02% improvement, getting a #Diversity Award fancy venue, picture in press. All the while there is no perceptible change in our lived experience because they own what is ‘knowledge’ & it ain’t lived #BAME experience. @CIPD_Policy
@PriyamvadaGopal First our individual lived experiences are ignored, fragmented into individualised experiences not a whole systemised thing so we doubt our own eyes & ears, sanity. We becme invisible then dehumanised in2 statistics with no names 2save them looking in2 our eyes & seeing our pain.

It's basically impossible to turn base #rstats into a more consistent beast: changes would brake huge amounts of code. Creating a number of new R functions (the tidyverse) is one way forward. At the end of the day, they are just R code.
Those worried about the purity and integrity of #rstats should worry more about Rcpp (with its huge influx of foreign Cpp code) than the tidyverse. In my case, I welcome both Rcpp and tidyverse, as they expand the palette I can use when writing code. #diversity
In my mind, the brilliance of @hadleywickham et al. was realizing the importance of code as communication tool. The tidyverse emphasizes communication of ideas and the design is heavy on communicating its features through great documentation.

Just got my course feedback. My students hated my online classes They really wanted me on Blackboard, I wish they knew how much of their data got sucked up. More importantly I want them to understand why they need to #ownyourdata #digped
This is such an importance #literacies lesson, such an important skill for educators to model. We have to #teachtheweb just as much as any "Big Five" they are missing this take away. It is essential to our civil society
And I thought I really nailed the navigation. I removed a third party chat app, removed an annotation app, got it down to just two websites, theirs and mine

At #MSBizAppsSummit trying to give this #CringeWorthy #WomenInTech panel the benefit of the doubt. They chose a white actress #GinaDavis to #keynote a #DiversityInTech chat. Hmmm. #refactrtech #womenwhocode #DiversityAndInclusion @RefactrTech @Microsoft
Gina Davis: we don't have enough #female #rolemodels [in tech] so we need to make them up [in film]. If she can see it she can believe it. Me: #BS there are many awesome #womenintech who could be speaking here. Still trying to give this keynote a chance.
Gina Davis on #metoo: Just don't take your dick out and we'll be fine. Me: that's a pretty low bar. #Refactrtech #womenintech #womenwhocode #DiversityInTech #MSBizAppsSummit

Biggest cheer during @iowademocrats chair @troymprice's opening remarks came after he predicted #Iowa Ds will "send @joniernst into an early retirement." #IASen #HallofFame
Sen @CoryBooker is 1st candidate to speak at #HallofFame event. (19 candidates will each have 5 minutes)
"We are being tested. This is a moral moment in America, and we must meet this test. I'm running for president because we can't take 4 more years of Donald Trump." #iacaucus
But @CoryBooker isn't just running to beat Donald Trump. That's the floor, not the ceiling. We can't just run on what we are against. Democrats need to tell people what we are for. "Every American needs health care, and make no mistake, abortion is health care." #iacaucus

Great thread. Parts of it I agree with, others make me concerned.

Let’s unpack.
Clearly, the point of the discussion offers an opportunity to widen the tech pipeline; to ensure accomplished black CS HBCU students get their foot in the door. Critical. Essential.
However, it also offers a question that @peterme brought up: so, is Stanford then just an expensive trade school?

OK, if you want to follow the #conservativeleadership race, here is a summary of the declared candidates so far. I've done this as a #Diversity analysis i.e. how much they differ from the norm but I also found it a very good way of getting to know their backgrounds @sundersays /1
Nominations close on June 10th so if people are interested, I will keep this up to date. Once the nominees are known, I will switch to a political summary instead e.g. voting record, years as MP, etc /2
Sticking with the diversity angle, it is interesting to see how #Conservative Prime Ministers started to diverge from the norm after the abolition of the magic circle and the candidates' Difference from Norm scores are on average similar to their predecessors. /3

India (Bhārat), aka Republic of India (Bhārat Gaṇarājya) constitutes a mosaic of paradoxes and contradictions starting with the existence of gigantic socio-economic disparities which are in sharp contrast with the spectacular technological development in most productive sectors.
Such contradictions reflect significant measurement discrepancies which, in India's case, could be on the order of hundreds of millions of people.
Furthermore, there is the problem of Islamic terrorists, who are trained abroad and find easy fuel in the contradictions within it.
Finally, there’s agriculture which, by some estimates, accounts for 90% of India’s water consumption. Farmers meet irrigation demands by indiscriminately extracting groundwater, which some say accounts for a quarter of the world’s groundwater usage.

On this #GlobalAccessibilityAwarenessDay, inspired to hear @lynnekjolso talk about #Inclusivity @Microsoft. One of the best keynotes I've attended i recent years!

Being #inclusive is such a win-win, yet many businesses don't pay enough attention.

#GAAD @CdnMarketing #CMAevents
So many great takeaways from the session.

"#Diversity is I am different.
#Inclusion is I matter."

~Kathleen Hall, CVP Brand, Advertising and Research @Microsoft
"Inclusive culture drives innovation.
Inclusive products remove barriers.
Inclusive #marketing resonates."

I'm a few years behind the curve; y'all still do follow trains?

Well, I'm starting one. Let's do one about #equitydesign.

@albanvillamil asked if I knew people, places, and tools for equity and design, and I wanted everyone to know everyone.

Spread the word! (1/million)
That being said, like equity work, this isn't (and arguably can't be) the definitive

Equity is a verb, like @_ChristineOrtiz says, so my hope is this is only the beginning.
I tried to get everyone's resources and descriptions correctly, but if there's anything wrong, feel free to correct me! (Crit's in our blood, right?)

Feel free to add, amend, include, and let's get to know each other. Cool? Cool.

My mentions are full of tweets about Snitchtasha, so I wanted to put something positive out there: my work! This week was a big week for me because FOUR interviews with me were published. First I refreshed my website (interview links follow): cprescodweinstein.com
The first interview to release this week was a super thrilling interview with the glorious and distinguished SUNY Albany Professor Janell Hobson in Ms. Magazine. Prof. Hobson really let me think out loud about what it means to be #BlackandSTEM.
msmagazine.com/2019/05/07/why…
Next came a discussion with @gregmepstein for @TechCrunch about #decolonizeSTEM and #diversity in #technology. Greg asked super thoughtful questions!! techcrunch.com/2019/05/08/dec…
