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) Image
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."

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

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 🙂…

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”..

Networking tips that built my self-efficacy (thanks @midhatf3) a self-reflection and follow-along 🧵

(cc: @InclusiveGradEd @APSphysics)
apparently, MORE than 80% of jobs are found by networking?!! And networking is more than just starting a connection - it is also about maintaining it. I'll just leave some silence to absorb this statistic (looking at you #phdchat) and next up is identifying who's who
Networks and people are continuums... but identifying one or more roles a person in your network serves can *srsly* help you make a bettr elevator pitch.

Let's brainstorm & try to categorize our networks. Lets identify the category that needs more ppl. Lets build ntwrks robustly

“we need to become more conscious of our unconscious biases” a mentor once said

at the time I thought that’s surely an oxymoron!
but on reflection, that’s 🎯

You're idiots, white Hollywood. '@McKinsey's study concluded that America’s film industry is the country’s least diverse business sector and that its systemic anti-Black biases cost it at least $10 billion in annual revenue.' @franklinleonard @nytopinion…
'Black content is undervalued, underdistributed and underfunded, @mckinsey's analysis found. It also found that Black talent has been systematically shut out of creator, producer, director and writer positions.' @franklinleonard @nytopinion… #Racism

Had a fun time talking about #leadership in #STEM (at any stage of career), #BlackExcellence #WomenInSTEM #DEI #DiversityandInclusion to a range of students and faculty at @tennesseetech. Thanks for the invitation @JosephCSlater. Look forward to building further on this.
Talked about ways to take on community level leadership roles to develop skills in acquiring funding, managing a budget, team building, managing people, executing.

Know what you are good at and balance the rest with your team. Don’t try to be it all.
Particularly on #Twitter, being overt about terms like #bias or #BLM or #racism can result in blowback. That does not mean what you said was wrong rather others may have insecurity or have work to do. Manage your energy as an advocate. Avoid burnout.

🚀We could learn a lot from Star Trek

✨Star Trek reminds us the importance of diversity & how we should treat each other

They worked to better themselves & humanity with compassion & integrity, earning respect across the Galaxy
Greed had been mostly eradicated...
Hate was not tolerated
Though Ferengis painted a clear picture of monetary greed, Cardassians painted a better picture of the dangers of abuse of power & the horrors of slavery & trafficking

Re @BurgerKing: years ago I was hired by A Very Big Company to review some advertising they were planning to run targeting women as part of their #DiversityAndInclusion program. I was clear upfront that I was not going to 'rubber stamp' their advertising, and that I would only...
take the job if they agreed to act on whatever I recommended - which they committed to. They showed me the ad. I said to them, I want to see the list of the creatives and crew behind the ad, but even without having seen it, I know this ad was written by white men. (It was.) ...
I knew that because it was a 'clever' ad that those men would have congratulated themselves on. I said to the client, this ad is 'cleverly' dramatizing the problem. (Career obstacles for women.) We live with the problem every day. We don't need the problem hammered home to us. ..

1/ If you call yourself an ally and you are at Google and want to effect change, you can organize/support a union or quit. Anything else you're doing is performative. #DiversityandInclusion #DiversityInTech #ISupportTimnit #ISupportAbril #ISupportBlackWomen
2/ #Timnit and #Abril are casualties of a toxic culture that may not have it's roots in HR but is weaponized against Black people and Black Women specifically. Here's how I know this. #DiversityandInclusion #DiversityInTech #ISupportTimnit #ISupportAbril #ISupportBlackWomen
3/ HR has the data that more than 50% of people who identify as Black categorize their experience at Google as negative. The only group at Google that has that distinction. Stats are similar at other #BigTech companies #DiversityandInclusion #DiversityInTech #ISupportBlackWomen

You end racism in business by hiring, welcoming & promoting Black talent, bc then you PAY Black talent & channel wealth to Black households. This esp needs to happen in #crypto, where wealth needs to spread beyond white men. But: @coinbase @nathanielpopper…

This is the #DemPartyPlatform for 2020. This part is called: Supporting High-Quality K-12 Schools Across America
