Not sure how on the radar this is for you but the #Chinaflooding season starts in 13 days and it’s already a catastrophe.

An interesting analysis of the situation.

#msm not covering this.

#Intent vs. #Impact

A wise person taught me that prioritizing #intent over #impact is a characteristic of #whitesupremacyculture.

It allows those w/ privileged identities to center themselves &
their intent while dismissing the impact on those who are marginalized.
Good article that discusses this phenomenon more in depth: everydayfeminism.com/2013/07/intent…
“I cannot tell you how often I’ve seen people attempt to deflect criticism about their oppressive language or actions by making the conversation about their intent.

At what point does the “intent” conversation stop mattering so that we can step back and look at impact?”/3

(THREAD) @ImpactAlpha challenges #impact investors to scale up their efforts 10X. To which I say: Yes! #Investors can do more, but there’s also #policy and #civics to consider. I want to share some ways at @_BlueHaven we’re addressing the #pandemic.
1/ On the #investment side, we’re checking in with #entrepreneurs and orgs we support, helping them keep their teams intact, thinking through costs, etc. (Check out @LaurenSCochran’s conversation with @annefieldonline: bit.ly/2XSdX8D)
2/ Bridge loans to #impact companies can also help. We’re excited about our investment in the Open Road Alliance Fund (@openroadtweets), which offers these to orgs affected by #COVID19 all over the world. bit.ly/2yavbUt

“...that the earlier, more forcefully and longer cities responded, the better their economic recovery...”
According to a new study on the Spanish flu behavior.
#SocialDistancing #economy #impact #Covid_19 #COVID19

bloomberg.com/amp/opinion/ar…
Done by economists Sergio Correia, Stephan Luck & Emil Verner looks at economic impact of the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic in the US. Combining mortality & economic variables with evidence on local implementation of so-called non-pharmaceutical interventions (#SocialDistancing)(2/5)
Cities that implemented aggressive social distancing & shutdowns to contain the virus came out looking better. Implementing these policies eight days earlier, or maintaining them for 46 days longer were associated with 4%-6% higher post pandemic manufacturing employment

So @aaron_s_fox jumped the gate on me :) w/ a thread on the #ACL #injury & #AFLW #sport #womanprobs conversation & he did a great job but I'd like my perspective to come in that special 'tone' I may be known for in presentations... My first twitter thread! Expect sarcasm and gifs
1st, I posted my perspective on #injury #women #athlete #development #biomechanics in another tweet, if you missed it, short editorial: bit.ly/3a5Al1x & presentation bit.ly/32hbogF Read those after this thread of fun, I hope the GIFs help you "hear" my tone :)
I’ve seen a bit about #ACL #injury and #menstrualcycles including news stories about organisations ready to study the menstrual cycle and #training - Let me give you some basic information to help you #factcheck before you start #cheering or #praising

*ATTENTION PLEASE*#AI #digitalhealth #tweeps Today @IndraJoshi10 and I at @NHSX are launching our new "Artificial Intelligence: How to get it right report" with help from A LOT of people across the digital health ecosystem nhsx.nhs.uk/key-informatio… 1/ 14
The report goes into detail on our plans for the NHS AI lab but, more importantly, the research that sits beneath that - particularly the work on governance: ethics and regulation with invaluable input from @reformthinktank @oxfordethicslab @turinginst @FutureAdvocacy 2/14
We (@IndraJoshi10 & me) hope that the report makes it clear WHY we think #AI is important for health and care & HOW we can make sure it is utilised in the 'right' way - not just for the sake of it - within safe & ethical boundaries 3/14

Wow. I found a donor trying to give >£1m to delivery work in a certain sector. I also found*, and told them, that there's very little evidence about 'what works' in that sector. So they can't reliably fund delivery b/c nobody knows what to deliver. They'd better fund production…
2/ of research about what to deliver (& how). I connected them to some researchers. Now, 3 months later, they're starting a partnership to produce effective #research in that sector.

That entire intervention only took me about 2 hours. Rescued >£1m from almost certain fail.
3/ See: get your philanthro-advice from me: I know my game ;-)

*by using a @3ieNews evidence & gap map. (Which are a public good and hence hard to fund, but useful & consequential.)

Alors, je vous présente… our findings about (1) what academic #research already exists about UK charities & #philanthropy and (2) the topics on which UK charities & donors say that they would like more academic #research.

(Thread)
#charity #impact #eval #impinv
2/ Combined, the results are a ‘gap analysis’ which can inform future research. Both studies were funded by @Charity_Futures, re its work establishing an Institute of Charity at Oxford University. But the findings can inform the agenda of any researchers in this terrain.

I'm a few years behind the curve; y'all still do follow trains?

Well, I'm starting one. Let's do one about #equitydesign.

@albanvillamil asked if I knew people, places, and tools for equity and design, and I wanted everyone to know everyone.

Spread the word! (1/million)
That being said, like equity work, this isn't (and arguably can't be) the definitive

Equity is a verb, like @_ChristineOrtiz says, so my hope is this is only the beginning.
I tried to get everyone's resources and descriptions correctly, but if there's anything wrong, feel free to correct me! (Crit's in our blood, right?)

Feel free to add, amend, include, and let's get to know each other. Cool? Cool.

Glad to be part of this convo! Need to define terms to begin:
Here are a few helpful ways I think of #racism:
Racism = Prejudice + Power to impact the lives and futures of the “other”. #LiberatingEvangelicalism 1/
Racism = the implementation of structural, systemic, legal and/or political hierarchy of human belonging based on arbitrary physical features. #LiberatingEvangelicalism 2/
Racism = the #racialization of society’s systems and structures by #intent OR by #impact. 3/#LiberatingEvangelicalism

Soaking up some very sobering info this afternoon at 'The Future of UK #Borders after #Brexit' organised by the indefatigable @hayward_katy in assoc w/ @UKandEU, @FortinusGlobal, @ShankerASingham. Invaluable research & policy engagement - nice work @QUBEngagement #Impact
Hayward poses key qs for us in NI in these precarious times - neither of which glean clear answer: (1) what opportunities does #Brexit offer NI? (2) what cost is British Govt prepared to incur for #Brexit - when polls indicate maj GB indifference to hard border,collapse of peace?
Personal opinion incoming:
I’ve previously said I think #Brexit is a moral, ethical, economic, social, & cultural crisis. I generally refrain from nailing my political colours to the post publicly, but the seriousness of the negative impacts of this ‘project’ are exceptional...
