A thread. 1/11

An elected head of state is accountable, democratic, representative, cost effective. It provides stability, legitimacy, transparency, adaptability, and unity.

@RepublicStaff @GrahamSmith_ #NotMyKing

Accountability matters. An elected head of state is answerable to the people who voted them in. #accountability #democracy

Democracy is the bedrock of a free society. An elected head of state reflects the people's will, chosen through a fair and transparent process. #democracy #fairness

Thought I’d share some of the #books I have read this year! Didn’t think I’d done much #reading this year but I’ve definitely done better than I thought! #BookRecommendations #BookLover #ReadingList
First up Chasing New Horizons - the story of the New Horizons satellite journey to #Pluto. A fascinating look at the project and how it all came together. #ILovePluto A picture of a Lego figure ...
Next up another space related book. #Curiosity the story of the not so little #Mars rover. I really enjoyed this book as the background to the projects is fascinating. So many projects nearly don’t see the light of day. #Space #Technology #ReadingList #BookTwitter A picture of a Lego figure ...

Politicians routinely lie, hide facts, evade taxes, help their kin with lucrative contracts. Media is complicit mostly because of the negative repercussions they might have to face.

They falsify / hide records, they blame things on opponents. A 🧵 for your awareness👇 Image
If you’re holding the most powerful position on earth, don’t be like this guy. Mr. Biden needs an elderly care home or a hospital more than the Oval Office at the White House.

To carry out the daily tasks, he needs mental & physical fitness. Stop 2024.

The pathetic state of Reddit !

A user raised a genuine Question.
Women started justifying it, people countered, ultimately post got removed !

Apparently the company in question was Adobe and Microsoft, and have been doing this for quite some. Many others do the same in college placements as well as off campus !
GPA cut off- nothing new, saw the same thing during my college placements too.
Girls withe low gpa still gets a pass.

.@drpwh62 and I supervised soon-to-be Drs Angela Chen and Neha Ravi in a #LGBTQI+ literature review. Very impressed to see students present 'off podium' with minimal notes at the @BondUniversity MD conference! #MedEd 1/5
The review looked at the gap between medical students and consultancy/attending practice. This is the career stage with the least research, and yet makes the biggest difference to eventual specialist workforce #LGBTQI representation. 2/5
There were just 19 studies, and the results were as awful as expected. Bullying, discrimination, poor mental health, burnout, and lots of emotional labour. There were risks in both disclosing and not disclosing personal #LGBTQI identity. 3/5

If you’re in a DEI position, here’s a quick summary of the findings from the empirical literature focused on prorgrams/initiatives designed to diversify an organization. 🧵#DEI #diversityandinclusion #Sociology #SociologyIsPractical #PublicSociology

The first thing to understand is that how the problem is defined already entails a solution. There are three main ways in which the problem has been defined and thus three broad strategies for addressing it:
Approach 1
The problem: mangers in charge of hiring and promotion are biased/racist/sexist/classist.

The Solution: change their beliefs OR their behavior (i.e. make their views or their actions less biased, racist, etc)

@journal_evo doesn't publish much on primates, but they have now published 2 papers on "primate macroevolution microevolution dentition".


Surprising though that 2022 doesn't cite 2012.

Blatant citation bias is really frustrating.

And so, a thread for #AcademicTwitter Screen capture of a search ...
Here is that first publication from 2012:
"A modular framework characterizes micro- and macroevolution of old world monkey dentitions"…
A quote from the abstract, "Our results of modularity by tooth type suggest that adult variation in the [cercopithecid] dentition is influenced by early developmental processes such as odontogenesis and jaw patterning."

Kudos 👏 to the 15 faculty members @Yale who co-signed this ⬇️ powerful statement in support of #Jewish, #Zionist & #Israeli students & post docs on the campus. Incredibly important to see professors 👩‍🏫👨‍🏫 standing up and speaking out like this!! #academia…
Key takeaway: whether it’s at #Yale or USC, CUNY, UPenn or any number of other 🇺🇸 universities, it’s increasingly faculty in #STEM fields who are speaking out against campus #Antisemitism & the ostracism, harassment of #Jewish, #Zionist, #Israeli students & junior professionals.
We are incredibly fortunate to have these faculty as members in our growing network @TheAENetwork and look forward to continuing to support their efforts & hard work to improve the campus climate for Jewish & all students! #DiversityandInclusion #academia

The rise of the teal female independents in #AusVotes2022 provides a striking case study into the power of "disruptive innovation"
(a concept defined by the esteemed Harvard Professor Clayton Christensen)
Disruptive innovation is sparked when a small but growing segment of the market is ignored and neglected by existing businesses, deemed “not important" or "not lucrative" enough to bother catering to or investing in.
In response to this void in the market, a new business can enter the market focused on addressing the needs, values and concerns of this "overlooked" segment.

They bring new ways of doing things and fresh approaches that resonate with those who feel unheard.

Another look at the risk to AP designation if the CRT Ban passes from the @ocregister @roxanakopetman…
Let's review what CRT is, in light of the fact that proponents of these bans think ANYTHING that mentions race or equity is CRT…
Recognition that race is not biologically real but is socially constructed and socially significant.

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."

1. EVERY MAN IN THE AD INDUSTRY MUST READ THIS, stop this and stop other men doing this. 2. Nothing changes until MEDIA NAMES NAMES (I've been trying to make this happen for years) @zoescaman… @Campaignmag @adage @adweek @thedrum @digiday @businessinsider
Together with reading @zoescaman's post… watch the first 15 minutes of my 2017 @3PercentConf keynote, to understand why everything Zoe cites is the single biggest business issue facing the ad industry (and every other industry) today
In my @3PercentConf 2017 keynote I quoted @rtraister and continued, "Nor can we see the great ads those women would have created, the @cannes_lions they would have won, the agencies they would have started, the ad industry they would have transformed."

Ladies, re-upping this @RachelKrantz @bustle interview with me because you may find it useful. Also, remember that in addition to business and #diversityandinclusion consulting and speaking, I also do personal coaching 🙂…
'Consider that when you ask for a raise, you're not just helping yourself — you are also acting on behalf of other women by helping to close the pay gap'..."As women, we don’t get taken seriously until we get taken seriously financially." I talk to @bustle…

A reminder that a 'Diversity' event doesn't mean getting women to speak/ chair/ organise. There's a WHOLE lot more to #DiversityAndInclusion than just gender.

(And there's a lot more to gender than men and women).
1/4 Image
The 'who can we think of?' method of finding speakers/ chairs/ organisers is what helped create a lack of diversity in the first place. Even if you're finding 'diverse' contributors, stop and think- why do I think of *these* people? Could it be #SurvivorBias? 2/4 Image
If you are getting the same few people to represent 'diversity' in your events; if you are getting 'diversity' that looks different but says the same things (lack of #ThoughtDiversity); if every 'diversity' story sounds like a 'how I succeeded against all odds' story...

The hiring process has long been identified for school administrators as their single most critical job duty..

..but, en masse, hiring in education remains woefully antiquated.

Here’s a potential fix..

#iledchat #edchat
1️⃣ Rid the hiring process *completely* of the overwhelmingly fixed mindset-rooted Q&A that plagues it.

There is **zero** research base to associate a teacher “thinking on their toes” in giving “the right” answers to questions on the fly, and their efficacy in the classroom.
2️⃣ Replace the anti-#growthmindset Q&A with a lesson the candidate delivers in front of a hiring panel.

The content/skills to be developed during the lesson should be given to the candidate at least 48 hours in advance of the screening date.

In other words, kill the “gotcha”..
