After today's meeting marathon, interviews on the Scholz speech & email galore, I guess it's back to business in Brussels!
This GIF shows how it feels to work on EU politics at the moment, but I'm looking forward to working on a bunch of great projects in the coming months. 👇/1
Very much looking forward to welcoming @ThinkTank_Lab in Brussels next week - besides giving a short input on "how to EU policy analysis", my colleague @FilipeALampe is organising an event on #diversity in EU policymaking with @CnctingEurope that I think is hugely important. /2
The @epc_eu also partnered up for the 'European Think Tank Conference' in October in Berlin to promote the exchange between European think tankers and discuss sector-specific issues. Stay tuned for a great programme! @dgapev… /3

Forschung in Österreich - auch in Krisen tendenziell ein Randthema.

#Wissenschaftskommunikation hat das Potential, der breiteren Bevölkerung ein besseres Verständnis über den Wert von fundierten Erkenntnissen zu bieten. Und damit auch der Politik. Aber wie? #Wisskomm 1/n
In Krisen wie der Pandemie gibt es viele hinlänglich bekannte doch weithin ungelöste Fragen (z.B. Datenintegration, repräsentative Kohorten, Long COVID, Impfstoffentwicklung, Stimmungsbildung in der Bevölkerung, besseres Miteinander, Kommunikation). 2/n
Auf Forschungsförderungsseite gab es -von einigen Positivbeispielen abgesehen- relativ wenig neue Impulse. Im Gegenteil, man hört von eingestellten Schulstudien oder der Beendigung des wertvollen soziologischen Austria Corona Panel Projekts aufgrund auslaufender Finanzierung. 3/n

There’s nothing to celebrate, @laneygradschool . The upcoming year will feature #StarvationWages and institutionalized abuses for #gradstudents, same as any other. Bring your government issued ID and turn the beer bottles into Molotov cocktails. 🍾🔥 TODAY!!!!

@emoryDSAC we are running out of time before the start of the fiscal year. are you gonna rage against this fucking machine or not? @ravibell and @Kimjacobarriola are banking on your (continued) silence and complacency. Rob that bank.

This is why this is an awkward position for Omar Sachedina and an awkward way of beginning his tenure. And that’s how it was played by corporate. Corporate diversity decisions are still based on white supremacy. The fact they can use our identities as chess pieces is that
The Liberals did the same when choosing gender over race for cabinet. Our identities are used as pieces on a chess board as appropriate for corporate branding exercises. It’s still white supremacy as mainly white men are making those decisions #cdnmedia
This is why #diversity is not #antiracism. It’s still a plantation, with white men at 🔝 and the rest of us scrambling for scraps from Massa’s table, putting us in opposition to each other on purpose. The power players lend power to one “faction” over another but can take it back

Major update for small cell #lung cancer! #LCSM

With @juliensage + @FoundationATCG, our paper now on @bioRxiv:

►Genomic analysis of *3,600* pts with SCLC; largest SCLC study to date!

►Multiple interesting findings discussed in this 🧵…
This study is unique in many ways:

> The #SCLC cohort studied came mostly from community sites --> representing a more typical “real-world” cohort of SCLC.
> The genomic data are tied to clinical data + outcomes.

To the best of our knowledge, our study analyzes the largest number of SCLC tumors from African ancestry to date:
> n=256 AFR cases
> 7.1% of the entire cohort
#Diversity in clinical studies is critical!!

#autism #Reserch

I usually use to help me translate. But right now, I don't understand. How is using Leo Kanner's backward and dishonest knowledge going to help autists and research 🤨 ?
Leo Kanner has said many things about autism, ESPECIALLY "pathological" nonsense, and he has stolen knowledge from Hans Asperger's assistants.

To take a notion from 1960, proven false and harmful to autists, as "evolution" for autism research, is absurd. ImageImageImageImage

5 Money Lessons from Indian Mythology 🧿

Here's a thread ⤵️

1. Knowledge is Wealth 📚

As per Indian mythology, Laxmi ji – the Goddess of Wealth, stays with a person only if he/she worships Saraswati ji – the Goddess of Knowledge.

It means that if a person has the right knowledge, wealth will follow you.

One can become wealthy without knowledge like people who have inherited wealth from parents but he may not sustain it, unless he knows how to manage it.

That’s the reason, we have seen many athletes and celebrities going broke despite earning good money throughout their career.

I have been asked before why I care so deeply about #Afghanistan when there are so many causes I could support in the United States. It has been a question that was asked with a little disgust on a couple of occasions, but most of the time it is out of genuine interest. 🧵
It goes back to being between six and eight years old. Sitting on my dad’s lap, we would pore over the atlas. My favorite pages were those of Afghanistan. I would trace my little fingers along the contour lines of the Hindu Kush. I would try to pronounce the names of villages.
Fast forward to ~1988 when my cousin and I came across stacks of @natgeo magazines in an upstairs cupboard at our grandparents house. Like many, I was taken in by the cover with “Afghan girl”, Sharbat Gula. Her eyes told a story that I would only understand much later in life.

Anyone who did not see this coming does not understand #tech…(which includes people who design #AI).

“Important nuances were lost in translation when a rule commonly used to measure disparate impacts on protected groups in hiring was codified for easy-to-use tools…AI fairness”
Every time I see “our #AI will solve bias! Give us your #DEI budget!” win an #innovation award, accelerator, #hackathon I feel exhausted…

institutions would rather purchase ineffective & worsening-the-problem #tech than hard work of holding ppl accountable or change culture
And this is how #DEI - how currently approached - is ineffective & wastes money because a small amount of money is thrown at it with zero/minimal real hard work & unwillingness to be uncomfortable. Hence these bills:…

Anlässlich der Forderung nach einer #42StundenWoche gegen den #Fachkraeftemangel hier mal ein Thread zum "Fachkräftemangel": Als ich Mitte der 1990er Jahre mein Studium begann, hiess es "Beste Karrierechancen für #MINT-Absolventen". OK, das klang gut, das, was ich studieren
wollte, war offenbar heiss begehrt. Während des Studiums kamen dann die Warnungen der Dozenten vor Headhuntern auf dem Campus und dass wir ja nicht den erstbesten Vertrag unterschreiben sollten. Nur: Die Headhunter waren gar nicht da. Lediglich eine hochpeinliche
Infoveranstaltung eines bekannten deutschen Konzerns gab es, bei der zwar die Awesomeness besagten Konzern beworben wurde, Fragen nach Praktikums- oder Diplomstellen die Herren aber offenbar komplett überraschten. Nun denn, irgendwann hatte ich mein Diplom in der Tasche und

Been thinking of what would be the best way to capture my #Infocomm22 story. Being a part of the community (#AVTweeps #AVintheAM #AVHappyHour) and getting active on social media has been so important to me in this journey. So here it is:

2/ That badge truly summarizes everything. My @Audinate fam would joke that I was highly 'decorated' and I'd say how I wore every one of those ribbons with pride! Being an #Audinator has been an amazing experience! We are not co-workers - we are family. Just ask @thesmoothfactor
3/ Being a speaker and getting to share knowledge is something I really love! Im grateful for all the opportunities I got! Tuesday 06/07 kicked things off with the #PMvEng session with my dear friend @jacobyaudio. Here are some pics (thx @noreenesson and @ChewieDaWookiee)

The legal history of diversity is not a simple tale of progress from intolerance to tolerance, nor did it just take place in the ‘West’. We asked our colleagues for lesser-known turning points (positive and negative) over the centuries.

A thread 👇👇👇
15/01/1955: The Federal Labour Court ruled that the principle of equal rights and the prohibition of discrimination (art.3(2)(3) 🇩🇪 Basic Law) include the principle of equal pay for women and men for equal work and that this principle binds the parties to collective agreements.
18/10/1929: In Edwards v AG of Canada, the Privy Council affirms that women may be appointed to the 🇨🇦 Senate, overruling the Canadian Supreme Court decision that women were not ‘persons’ under the relevant statute. Diversity through literal & liberal statutory interpretation!

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

See the start of the second thread here:

"#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.

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?

Soziale Mobilität ist, wenn sich alle in der Gesellschaft barriere- und diskriminierungsfrei fortbewegen können.

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
