Thread #3 below about the @cityofwinnipeg “Corporate Advertising Policy.” A 🧵 - the epilogue.

See the start of the second thread here:

#wpg22 #wpgpoli #mbpoli
"#People will forget what you said. People will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."

@energy106fm & Evanov tried to make me feel like I am disposable.

Does @cityofwinnipeg define them as reputable?

#wpg22 #wpgpoli #mbpoli 46/3🧵
#winnipegpolice makes me feel like they will only and always be #Winnipeg's fascist brotherhood.

@themarugroup tried to make me feel like I am insignificant to their global worldview.

Does @cityofwinnipeg define @wpgpolice and Maru as reputable?

Thread #2 below about the @cityofwinnipeg “Corporate Advertising Policy.” A 🧵, the story.

See the start of the first thread here:

#wpg22 #wpgpoli #mbpoli
3.2.e: "Only appear in reputable publications." How is it defined? Opinions: not part of #diversity & inclusion. Reputable is an opinion.

Ex: @energy106fm affirmed values & visions to be “one of the strongest media allies to the #LGBTQ community."

#wpg22 #wpgpoli #mbpoli 24/2🧵
Before that, #Energy hired Dave Wheeler, a host released from his last radio position. The release was due to #transphobic #comments after receiving suspensions for racist comments.

Does @cityofwinnipeg define @energy106fm as reputable?

04/28: I spoke to the @cityofwinnipeg supporting the SPIRIT of the "Corporate Advertising Policy.”

A randy night at the senior's centre has more teeth than this #policy.

It took #Winnipeg months to put "We prefer #kindness" in print.

This is long. A 🧵 …
(Actually, 3 🧵’s)
Watch -

Our elected officials are tone deaf to harm corporate #Winnipeg enables. Context is key to understanding and interrupting my presentation proved that.

Including #wpg22 for candidates. Please address this in your campaign.

#wpgpoli #mbpoli 02/1🧵
@ShawnNason moved, @KevinKleinwpg seconded.


I didn't get to finish my presentation. I’ll share my notes here.

(Could have finished in ~9 mins, in full, with all relevant context 🤷🏼‍♀️)

Nachhaltige Mobilität hat positive Wirkungen auf Klima, Umwelt und Soziales im Einklang mit den nachhaltigen Entwicklungszielen (#SDGs) der #UnitedNations.

Doch was ist eigentlich soziale Mobiliät?

Gibt es einen Zusammenhang von Raum- und Geschlechterverhältnissen?

Soziale Mobilität ist, wenn sich alle in der Gesellschaft barriere- und diskriminierungsfrei fortbewegen können.
Um die Bedarfe der Nutzenden zu verstehen, müssen soziostrukturelle und persönliche Merkmale (z.B. #RadDerVielfalt) verstanden werden.

TY @innodim for inviting me to speak! My cognitive PEM wouldn’t let me be great but I appreciate her encouragement & summary! Want to be sure my main points are clear in re to Black Maternal #Mental Health, Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders #PMADs, & disparities.#AIMART #BMHW22
I am no expert, so I'll share what I know. Black mothers are more at risk of #PMADs & are less likely to receive treatment b/c the structural social & economic inequities as a result of #antiBlack #racism & #misogynoir in this white supremacist patriarchal society.#BMHW22
“Close to 40% of Black mothers will suffer from postpartum depression [(PPD)]” OR ‘Systemic racism & sexism harm Black mothers which manifest as PPD for a reported ~40%.’ Addressing these risk factors associated w PMAD is key:
Lack of access to high-quality medical care

🧵1/ Today is #InternationalWomensDay. If you havent done so please join @AvixaDiversity & @AVIXAWomen in our #BreakTheBias campaign. Words are powerful but mean little without action. Im blessed with many amazing women in my life who've inspired me and stood by me! #BTBinAV
2/ #Bias is one of most challenging things to fight because it needs you looking at yourself. Its awesome to be part of an initiative, its great to raise your voice but as we celebrate #IWD2022 please do not forget that even the smallest of actions can help.
3/ #Diversity #Equity #Inclusion are not "one and done" things. Its a process, a journey and there's going to be plenty of growth and evolution. Lets break down barriers, lets raise the wonderful women in our lives. My promise today is that I'll keep trying... everyday! #BTBinAV

I don't want to quote tweet - I don't want to initiate any negative responses but I have seen many tweets & RTs today celebrating the intimidation & bullying of a #woman at today's #NWCI #Dublin rally for #InternationalWomensDay. I find this wholly unacceptable.
It was an #IWD2022 rally, supposedly for, by & about women, but obviously only for some women, only for women who agree with certain concepts, ideas & who share certain opinions. #Women are not a homogenous group, nor should we be, we have varying opinions & beliefs. 2/8
A #woman, entitled to be there with her placard, was surrounded, shouted at & intimated until she left - this is, without a shadow of doubt, bullying. Many people who attend such rallies talk about being #inclusive, but what that inclusivity actually refers to is 'agreement'. 3/8

I reached out to @MarriottIntl's VP Global Diversity Equity + Inclusion. Orlando World Center #Marriott is hosting a white nationalist CPAC-alternative event this weekend, AFPAC.

How does hosting this event square with Marriott's commitment to #DiversityandInclusion? $MAR
Marriott: "Diversity and inclusion is fundamental to our core values and strategic business goals."

What does #Marriott tell employees about hosting a white nationalist CPAC alternative event this weekend?

Here's a balanced thread on #academia vs #industry from the perspective of someone who has held senior positions in both. I'm going to write this thread because a lot of what I read here reduces to "my tribe is better than yours" or "grass is always greener".

The academic trade is fundamentally freedom for money.

As a Sr #academic you barely have a boss and really get to determine which of millions of options you can pursue. New intl grants? More policy engagement? Acad leadership? Media? Translational research? All up to you.

Making the most of this implies a couple of things:
1) you must have a clear path to a senior position to take advantage
2) your institution must not be over corporatizing.

Let's address these two

Encouraged by a very + response to the "RFA" for our new Summer Research Institute (SRI) Heart +Lung +Blood Program (CHP2SRIP) for undergraduate students from under-represented backgrounds, funded by @nih_nhlbi (R25 HL158295) and now part of the SRI Program at @ChildrensPgh 1/3
Indeed, we had 67 undergraduate students from groups URiM apply to the @ChildrensPgh SRI Program this year, compared with 5 such applicants last year (a nearly 14-fold increase)! Very grateful for the leadership + help from Drs. Sunder Sims-Lucas + Michelle Manni in our team. 2/3
Very appreciative of help from friends at @PittTweet, other institutions, + @atscommunity for "spreading the word". First step of a long journey, but looking forward to the future! @NHLBI_LUNGDir @PittPediatrics #NextGen #RepresentationMatters #HealthEquity #Diversity #SiSePuede

#BlackHistoryMonth is an opportunity to understand Black histories, going beyond stories of racism and slavery to spotlight Black success and high achievement. However, the focus on the past sometimes causes us to overlook the history that Black people make right now today.
There are times that Black History walks among us and we fail to recognize its greatness. My grandmomma used to say, “Flowers are for the living.” That is to say, can’t no dead people smell no flowers! Why do we wait for people to die before we honor them?
Let’s honor them now! While they can appreciate it! And they can know that we appreciate them! And sometimes, Black History is as simple as representation.

Throwing this out there in hopes that someone can relate bc sometimes this experience is lonely and confusing …
I just went to apply for a #diversity training award and then stopped. Canceled my application. This is not the first time I’ve done this in my graduate career. 🧵
I am half Persian. My father fled to this country during the Iranian revolution w/ no money in his pocket. My mother is from Missouri. She and my father met, fell in love despite not speaking each others’ language, and eloped after 2 months of being together.
They were cut off from their families bc of this. And my father faced awful, violent discrimination in MO (read: car being flipped over and set on fire). Still, they persisted and fostered a loving environment for my brother and me. It wasn’t always stable, but it was loving.

This government, and officials is really starting to cheese me off. This is a national disgrace and embarrassment.

A thread on what's making our democracy and politics feel like its drowning from a rising tide of lies and destructive attitudes…
Worth saying, I'm not a political commentator but this is something that is getting on my nerves, quite a lot.

All views are my own in a personal capacity.

I'm an ordinary member of the public and have voted for both main parties in previous general elections.
I've gone past caring about erosion of parties, what is really getting on my wick now is the erosion of trust in our democracy.

Democracy & strong stable governance is a core pillar of society that we stand proud upon.

The recent revelations is a real erosion of our democracy

:: Appearance, Perception and Reaction ::

I've waited a bit for things to die down,
but I think it's time for a little chat about diversity, inclusivity and doing the right thing the right way.

(Yes, coming from a 40yo straight white male!)

#Diversity #inclusion
Now, recently, there was an event promoted ...
... and it was hit with the:
"surprise, white guys"

The problem is - it wasn't just white guys.
The problem is also - they didn't make that clear.

If you are going to do the right thing,
Do It Right!

That means you need to push and clearly display and reference minorities and those often under-represented - in all media and promotions.

Front AND Center

What is the point of being inclusive,
and then only displaying the prominent/common demographic?

1/10 Some #CharitySoStraight top tips for your charity in 2022 #Thread

Please don't Rainbow Wash your charity brand this year in #Pride season (it's never a good look) Meaningfully engage with your #LGBTQ+ stakeholders + audiences instead #Authenticity #RainbowWashing #branding
2/10 Think about how your charity depicts the people it works with. Do you show a diverse range of people including #LGBTQ+ / same sex couples online/in your marketing collateral? Consider what message this sends to potential employees + service users if not #CharitySoStraight
3/10 think about what data you collect when you're recruiting + consider how you can use that data to benefit your #LGBTQ+ employees. You can't support the needs of your workforce if you don't know who they are! #diversity #CharitySoStraight #recruitment #CharityRecruitment

This makes me so 🤢

The idea that women are automatically “safe” is exactly what creates this “opportunity” for some women to exploit children & monetize their “optics” of “trustworthy” on behalf of predators.

Gender does not predict ethics, integrity, safety.
Why does #GhislaineMaxwellTrial matter to #womeninSTEM?
⬇️federal funding
➡️private donors (Epstein)

“Socialites” open doors to elite spaces, including #academia #science #STEM
Women=“optics” & “reputation management” for these wealthy predator men…
These same connected women, often daughters of powerful businessmen

are on boards of #WomeninSTEM “empowerment” organizations or on #MeToo (TimesUp scandal)

the very women who are predators of young women are given access to women’s “safe spaces”? (!!!)…

The #diversity craze is nothing new. Neither is its #dissent.

"The plain fact is that the richness and unpredictability of genuine human diversity cannot be encompassed by a few caricatures, even if they are very well intentioned." -Richard Bernstein, 1994
"Valuing Diversity imagines a world of diversity in which, paradoxically, everybody will have more or less the same ideas, the same philosophy, the same vaguely liberal political convictions, the same notions of the equality of all peoples, all sexes, and all sexual practices..."
"In their attempt to open our minds to that great world of difference that they know exists out there, they unintentionally reaffirm their own attachment to values and practices that originated in the West."

New @ADVANCEGeo paper in @NatureGeosci: we argue, addressing the lack of #diversity in STEMM requires that we use appropriate framing of a #HostileObstacleCourse for scholars from minoritized communities (& drop the flawed metaphor of a #LeakyPipeline) 1/n… The image is the first page...
Building an inclusive and equitable scientific community requires that we identify and actively work to remove structural barriers to participation. Replacing the #LeakyPipeline metaphor with that of a #HostileObstacleCourse demands that those with power take the lead. 2/n
Academic institutions & scientific societies must follow the lead of @theAGU, etc & address exclusionary behaviors. If we make no efforts to transform toxic workplace culture, we are forcing marginalized individuals to endure more and more harm if they stay in STEMM. 3/3

Der Unwissenschaftlichkeitsvorwurf. Ein beliebter Vorwurf gegenüber den #4GenderStudies. Der #AfD dient er u.a. dazu, die Forderung nach der Abschaffung des Forschungsgebietes zu untermau-ern. Ein kleiner #Thread über die Angriffe der #AfD auf die #4GenderStudies 1/x
Für die AfD sind #Feminismus und #Gender Feindbilder, genauso wie die Sichtbarkeit queerer und nicht hetero-normativer Lebensentwürfe. Geschlechtliche Vielfalt und gleichstellungs- und antidiskriminierungspolitische Forderungen werden klar abgelehnt. #4GenderStudies 2/x
Dies hindert die Partei jedoch nicht daran, formal für ‚Toleranz‘ zu plädieren und Geschlechter- und Sexualitätspolitiken rassistisch für eine Abwehr von ‚anderen‘, vermeintlich rückständigen Bevölkerungsgruppen zu instrumentalisieren. #4GenderStudies 3/x
