Thread on how #inclusion, or lack thereof, affects #Wellbeing:

⚠️: upcoming #vulnerability moment

Do you ever feel Iike you don’t belong in the spaces you occupy?
I do.
The feeling is isolating & discouraging.

The reasons why are complex, complicated. /1
#medtwitter #burnout
I will confess here that being in #dermatology and in #academia magnifies these feelings.

Being courageous, stepping outside comfort zones, making your voice heard... it’s good, necessary, but the way you’re perceived and received matters. It has impact.

It’s complicated.
The cycle of self-confidence can be a positive or negative one, and often starts early in youth, affected by things such as parental upbringing, privilege, etc.

That cycle can build on itself, and have huge implications for one’s professional and personal wellbeing.

Live tweeting re-watch of #MainPremKiDiwaniHoon henceforth to be referred to as #MPKDH

First 5 minutes, and this college clearly never had a #POSH training because a student has plopped into a professor's lap and the professor is telling the girls they'll clear the exams
And of course the #electricguitar is connected to

What really is the Democratic Left?

Combating MSM, @DNC & the Right's misinformation campaign, propaganda & lies about where Left, Center & Right actually are politically w/ some fucking history & facts to protect our #Democracy from modern slavery #Neoliberalism.
French Revolution Nat. Assembly seating was origins of political Left & Right spectrum designations.

Left wanted reform, new constitution w/ Declaration of Rights of Man & of Citizen

Right wanted to continue Ancien Régime - monarchy & feudal nobility

1. Men are born and remain free and equal in rights.
2. These rights are liberty, property, safety and resistance against oppression.
5. The law has the right to forbid only actions harmful to society...…

1/ @voiceofsandiego suspects @SDDistAtty @SummerStephan may be leaving the #Republican Party. Why? Read her rambling response:…

What is clear: #SanDiego is full of ambitious politicians who change party, office and/or districts to stay in/run for office.
2/ Related: 2 of 3 recent Chairs of @sandiegodems were "reformed" #Republicans

They changed their party registration then worked against #progressives when they run against #moderates. Women of color were especially impacted by moderate party policies & actions in 2018
3/ @sandiegodems used "member communication" $ to attack @CD4Monica @vivianmorenoSD in their elections

Both women won- despite institutional #Democrat opposition. Hopefully this teaches local Democrats about the power & need for #diversity & representation in #SanDiego politics

5am thoughts: One of the challenges for men in #leadership positions in #tech who want to increase #inclusion and #diversity in our orgs, is that first we need to first recognize our own #privilege before knowing what conscious actions to take in our orgs & company-wide... 1/14
First, credit to my colleague @bjohnso5y. Her post on how to be a better #ally for #womenintech emphasized the mechanism of #recognition (e.g. crediting women for their ideas in public spaces). The goal of better #allyship inspired this thread... 2/14…
In the sphere of political debate, you’ll often hear white people (especially men) arguing they don’t have privilege and don’t get special treatment. "Everything’s a meritocracy!" "Nobody 'gave' me anything!" - Nothing to see here, move along… 3/14

Managed to talk about Invisible Women by @CCriadoPerez at work today. Conversation touched on women doing more in the home and other issues so I mentioned the impact of Swedish snowploughing on women to mild scoffs. Scoffing stopped by the time I was done. :D 1/5
Talked about indirect discrimination, was asked about the difference between direct and indirect, then asked how policies can be discrimination-proofed so explained #EqualityImpactAssessments. 2/5
That led to being asked about whether there is a checklist (no official one as such) for policy planning, and gave an example of a consultation I took part in to make an EIA for a building move by an organisation I do some work for. 3/5

[1/6] 🤚🏽Heads up, Twitter community!✋🏽
Calling all folk who have been asked to be an evidence-giver (e.g. speaker, expert, etc) in a mini-public, like a Citizens’ Jury, Citizens’ Assembly and so on. 🎺We want to hear from you. 🎺
[2/6] ❓Why did you *decline* the invitation? Was it workload? The timing of the event? A bit of imposter syndrome? Hatred of public speaking? Unfamiliarity of the role?
[3/6]❓ Why did you *accept* the invitation? How did you find the experience? Would you be an evidence-giver again? What might have made it easier for you, as an evidence-giver?

This is really starting to piss me off. #Trudeau literally created the most diverse cabinet in the history of #Canada, giving #POC the highest jobs in the country. He’s welcomed #Syrian refugees, he’s increased funding to #Indigenous people, he’s marched with #LGBTQ in #Pride...
...Parades. He’s supported #women’s rights, stood with #feminists & created the most gender balanced cabinet in the history of this country. His record on #humanrights, #multiculturalism & #diversity speaks a feck of a lot louder than some 20 year old photos. Wake up #canada!...
This is not #racism it is character assassination plain & simple. Don’t believe me? Look at Scheer’s record on #multiculturalism, #diversity & #inclusion. Look at the #whitenationalists, #bigots & #racists running in his campaign & ask yourself why they got a pass & JT doesn’t...

A Detroit girl through and through. @Cande313’s pronouns are “she, her and Detroiter.” Speaking about the damage done to communities when we parachute in and get the story wrong- repping @media_outlier at #sfj19
When there is a front page story about a new hotel but not on the incredibly high rates of black babies dying in Detroit, @MGuzman_Detroit says, “That’s people not doing their job.”
Consensus on the panel: “in Detroit, ‘come back’ is a dirty word.” @Cande313 says if you’re going to report on #Detroit you should take a history lesson first.

The first week of classes here at @MineralAreaCC, some instructors asked their students to write down their thoughts on why they chose MAC and how it is going. Those statements (anonymous) were given to me in their own words. Here is a thread of some examples...#POMAC
@MineralAreaCC "My online classes make it easier for me so I do not miss too many classes if my kids are sick. I've met a lot of great people so far and I look forward to the semesters ahead of me"

@MineralAreaCC provides great resources and course options for non-traditional students! #POMAC
@MineralAreaCC "My teachers have been great and my advisors have always tried to make the best schedule for me. It's such an easy going environment, which is great for students!"

@MineralAreaCC has dedicated staff and faculty ready to help students have the best experience possible. #POMAC

Good morning sportsfans, except @theheraldsun subs 🔽 you can get in the bin 😞

Happy fathers day to all the dads out there, except Peter Dutton terrorising #HomeToBilo little girls 🤬

Let's see what our #BallsOnly sports media has in store for #WomenInSport this Sunday...

OK folks, hold onto your hats. Here we go. Starting my annual ritual of live-tweeting my reading of the @voguemagazine #septemberissue. Fyi: this will be happening on and off through today, because a) there's a LOT of the September issue, and b) I also have Saturday chores 🙂
@voguemagazine So...the cover. @taylorswift13. Very much admire her as a young woman conquering the sexist patriarchal music business, but - I would've loved to have seen someone not a 'standard celeb' on the cover, ideally someone older, and most ideally someone black. #liveolder #diversity
@voguemagazine The marquee inside front cover/7 pages/scent strip spot is taken by @YSL for Libre feat @DUALIPA. I can't even begin to think what that ad placement cost. A good less-obvious celeb choice, but again, as a dedicated daily wearer of YSL scent Nu, would like to see an older woman

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)
