'Old international norms and rules of the game have been turned on their head… Global challenges require new, not outdated global responses.' @SudanPMHamdok odi.org/60/global-rese… #ODI60 #GlobalReset 2/ Image
'Covid-19 exacerbated existing inequalities but taught us that collective human behaviour matters, that government leadership matters, that science matters and that compassion and collaboration matter. ' @MaryRobinsonCtr odi.org/60/global-rese… #ODI60 #GlobalReset 3/ Image

1/ Next up in #ReflectionThreads : Throwing some light on ‘Developer Relations’ (DevRel) as a function.

I'll summarize some experiences from
- My work at a product MNC
- My research + prep work for product startup/s interviews

Read below 👇🏻

#DeveloperRelations #Thread
2/ DevRel is useful for any company which has a tech product and is looking for increasing their developer base. Needless to say, the framework mentioned below would be applicable (at a high level) for various other (non-tech) products as well.
3/ Why DevRel? 🤔
- Engage with a unique audience : Developers
- Reach devs@scale (1:few:many)
- Help devs make *meaningful* solutions
- Receive critical product feedback

USE THIS #Thread #Paradox of #AntiracistEdLeadership in #Edsystems- thoughts I've been really mulling abt in the past while. Have to admit, I've been sitting on this for a couple weeks. Grateful to those who helped me sift through my thinking <3 Here's to #courageousconversations
True #AntiRacist Leadership can only happen when you are anchored in #communities and you do the work #buildrelationships #seekadvice #love & #beLoved by those who give you #permission & #legitimacy to continue the struggle in boardrooms.
When I became a senior leader in Edu. I was advised that - You cannot be on the streets & in the boardrooms. "its time to choose. Its a different struggle." I didnt choose bc WE deserve to be in the boardroom but THAT choice comes at a #price

Umbereen S Nehal MD MPH: who is this person? Several people have been asking

A thread

Where am I from? Hooboy.
Let’s say, citizen of the world, human ping pong ball. Third culture kid. Genetic mutt

Born: 🇺🇸
🇵🇰 parents - when my parents born colonial rule, pre-Pakistan
To thoroughly annoy my Twitter bestie, @DrvanTilburg

Am an ENFP - a cross between Snoopy, Robin Willians, Ellen Degeneres, Dr. Seuss, Charles Dickens, Upton Sinclair

I border on ENTP - love new info and love to challenge in order to break through barriers or limitations
My great-grandfather was given title "Khan Bahadur" (brave). As a judge, a brown man under Colonial rule, he threw the book at a British attorney. "Learn the law" if in his courtroom. Hence my stiff moral backbone

My mom & me:

(She loves this song)

Since pretty much everyone under quarantine has to use digitized primary sources, I thought it might be useful to point to #digitalarchives that *explicitly* acknowledge & caution users abt #archivalsilences in their contents, and describe their work to rectify them.

A thread.
1/ A note: Most people appreciate the easiness of online access to archival material, but tend to forget that all #digitization is selective.
2/ This means that what you see online is usually not “everything” that an institution holds abt a topic. It's important to understand the digitized together w the physical. Even if you can't access physical records now, you'll be able to better contextualize what you see online.

Meet the New @Yammer session - hosted by @espnguyen

My notes in this thread: ✍️🏻
@Yammer @espnguyen Yammer's focus is on:

#Communities (not Groups anymore!)
#Knowledge (especially the "soft/implicit knowledge")
#Engagement (multidirectional communication)
@Yammer @espnguyen Despite Yammer's "social media" roots and stance, it's also very serious about security, privacy and compliance. Just like any other @Office365 service!

Today, I will try my hand at live tweeting insights from "A #Home of One's Own", a two-day #researchworkshop on socially & economically #marginalised women's experiences of and negotiations with #genderinequalities in #informalurbanhousing in India.
This workshop has been organised by #JadavpurUniversity (School of Women's Studies), #RabindraBharathiUniversity (Centre for Women's Studies) and #Parichiti, a women's organisation. All three are research partners on a #GCRF project funded by @GoldsmithsUoL.
Since Oct 2018, I have collaborated with Dr. Henrike Donner, who is leading it, to develop #researchcollaborations with #educational and #development organisations in India to implement a pilot study on #genderurbanhousing. This workshop marks the end of the first phase.

I am #disabled I am #trans I am #queer I am a #survivor

But most obviously, I am #white

And because of the most obvious part of who I am, I will always be elevated over the people of color in every single one of my communities.
This is true for every single white person who is part of any one or multiple marginalized groups.

Our voices are always heard first and foremost. Yet the racial disparity in our communities is rarely, if ever, discussed.
So often, white people dominate and push ourselves to the for front of each of our #communities

We make spaces that should be open to everyone, only truly welcoming to white people. Instead of boosting the voices of our most marginalized, we silence them

The values are attached as a pdf to the job description linked above. Here’s the direct link: turing.ac.uk/sites/default/…

Before I dig into them I want to give a quick shout out to Georgia Aitkenhead who wrote the first draft based on our long conversations. THANK YOU Georgia!

When you apply for the job PLEASE address the values in your cover letter. It’s an essential requirement that you have a commitment to these values.
