A suggestion on how we can preserve mental & emotional wellbeing and help people at the same time:

Shift from "why" thinking ➡️ "what" & "how"
In other words, get task-oriented!

What do I mean? A small 🧵on how community service can also be a powerful tool for wellbeing.
/1
I was talking to a colleague today about the mental and emotional toll that #COVID19 has taken on everyone's lives.

I've posted about how we need to find those rays of light and silver linings whenever and wherever we can, to help counteract all the darkness.
Part of that involves what I call creating the light.

When all we see around us is darkness, and it's hard to see the silver linings, can we actually create some light ourselves?

I believe we can, and in doing so, provide some much needed service to those in need.

Accessibility was never a "nice to have" thing. It has always been a "must have" but people/orgs deprioritized it. Made it a thing for phase 2. A thing they can add later. As we go through this public health crisis, people are realizing it is an absolute MUST HAVE for all things.
Amidst all the uncertainty and increased focus on public health, people will be asked to make all materials accessible. That will include web sites that are providing critical info about disease, its spread, and prevention measures. It will include social media posts...
It will include emails. It will include resources on effective remote working. It will include educational resources and learning materials as we turn towards a "remote first" and/or "asynchronous first" initiative rather than in person/live first proposition.

My son's TA is incredible! School refusal this morning meant that we were still in the car after the start of school. I've learned from past mistakes from years ago and I will never carry him in screaming, so I was gently encouraging him, but giving him space to find his calm. 1/
A friend had told school for me so they knew where we are. His TA came and sat with him in the car, talking about their weekends, what they were going to have for breakfast together (he hadn't felt able to eat or drink yet), and a plan so school demands were reduced. 2/
She's said he didn't have to go to assembly, could either work together outside or in a quiet room on their own, but he could join in with the class if he wants. He struggles with another child who demands his TA's attention, so she said they could move groups. 3/

People of color (POCs) receive less feedback than their peers. Why? Managers 1) fear being perceived as racist, 2) fear hard conversations and 3) invest less time & attention on POC reports. POCs deserve better. Here are a few tips if you agree:
#1 - Fear of being perceived as racist. The (often unconscious) thought process goes: By avoiding giving feedback altogether, I will eliminate all possibility of being perceived as biased or discriminatory./2
This colorblind strategy has become especially prevalent in the era of cancel culture. People leaders are increasingly wary of interacting with employees of color. It feels like a minefield and they’d rather avoid the liability altogether./3

#diversity #equity & #inclusion jobs are some of the hottest in the country. If you’re on the market, get clarity re: where the orgs you’re interviewing with are in their evolution. Be choosy. My recs for the top 10 Qs to ask during the hiring process are below:
1) “Why me?”: I love asking this during 3rd interviews. It gives you insight into how an org has branded you, gives you a chance to clear up misconceptions & can alert you to if it's really about you or if you'll be a token. At best, it turns interviewers into your hype team.
2) “What’ve you done to prepare for this role?”: Mostly relevant to positions that are new to the org. Listen for actions taken to prep the org & key stakeholders re: the case for change. If you get blank stares in response to this Q, they ain’t ready.

BREAKING: not famous former RE teacher & privileged white man (who is part of the problem) pokes fun at lived experience of very successful former Lewisham schoolboy @IanWright0

#losethebooths #exclusions
For those who have been blocked or excluded from Mr Bennett’s feed I attach the tweet that made me 🤦🏼‍♂️

Blocking on socmed can be valuable to prevent trolling but when it also prevents valuable discourse it also prevents the opportunity for growth & learning
My self-esteem doesn’t depend upon me being right all of time.

On the contrary I think therefore I can change my mind as new information & evidence comes to light.

Further, I quite often want to be wrong...

1/So there was lots of talk at @AACNursing #AACNdoc20 re: #Nursing #PhD pipeline, getting folx esp prelicensure students ‘excited’ about #nursingscience & the #BStoPhD

I totally revamped our #nursingresearch & #innovation course @UMassAmherst last fall to do just that

Thread ⬇️
2/ I told the Asst Dean when I took it on that regardless of the learning objectives for the course I had only 1 GOAL:

That by the end of the semester, these students would be EXCITED!-or at very least, just a little bit CURIOUS-about a career in #nursingscience & #innovation
3/ A note about context: This was a course of ~85 Accel BS students, taught in an urban campus that is geographically ~40mins drive from main @UMassAmherst campus, in the . The classroom assigned had no windows. Class ran 8am-1030am Weds, before more courses. I say this b/c....

Thread: #autism #employment statistics are unreliable but 44 years of working has taught me this: #autistic people struggle to reach their full potential unless organisational culture and environmental issues are addressed.
#neurodiversity

#inclusion

1/
I once did some work on job design and evaluation for the NHS. In attempting to improve #employment outcomes for #autistic people we often start in the wrong place. It’s no good trying to fit people into roles that are unsuitable, and this applies to working environments too.
2/
A degree of mutual adaptation is possible, but true workplace inclusion begins with design.
We have plenty of information about common challenges experienced by autistic people - our #sensory and #communication differences are well-defined.
So what seems to be the problem?

What are your needs?

...general reasoning skills free from material blackmail.

For too long now we have been enslaved by corporate lies. Tobacco, sugar, gmo, oil producers have blackmailed editorialists, threatening their #freedom, made them stall action each day and spread doubt, to protect sales.
These people, often well-established as lobbyist, are being paraded around, spreading outright lies under a veil of supposed healthy #skepticism. Physicists turning climatologists by night, supposed professors doing economy and no scientific method: all under corporate payroll. >

The upshot is, Winston Smith is gaslit to hell and back. He spends the entire novel wondering exactly what the truth is. Is it even 1984? He isn't sure. Does Big Brother actually physically exist somewhere in Oceania, or is he just a symbol? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Yesterday I visited the cafe where my brother works. His work is a big deal. Because he has an #IntellectualDisability #DevelopmentalDisability and #InclusiveEmployment is ridiculously hard to find. We talk a lot on #MedTwitter about being #Inclusive. 1/
I am part of those conversations. They usually centre around #GenderEquity, sometimes #Antiracism, occasionally #LGBTQ+ rights, and once in a while #Disability - but under that term I almost never hear about #DevelopmentalDisability, or more importantly, how we - physicians 2/

-Isms should be uncomfortable. Labeling something as a 'bias' or prejudice does not make it less #racist, #sexist, #homophobic, #ageist, #ableist, etc. Recognizing your own racism, sexism, homophobia - your own -ism, is the first step to fighting it
#diversity #inclusion 1/
Sugar-coating these words to make them more comfortable to work with does us no favors.

Back story:

During the Ignite pre-day I was very open about recognizing my own bias, specifically my own racism. I understand that it exists & I actively work against that conditioning. 2/
It is conditioning. And exists in most of us. I was just willing to admit to it in an open forum. It's sad that instead of asking how we can all get to a place where we are admitting to & working against our own isms, people get hung up on the admission & label me "a racist" 3/

1)Les voy a contar algo. Voy a la feria todos los domingos. Así conocí a Luchito. Me cuida el auto y me ayuda con las bolsas. Se acercó la primera vez porque me vio con la Fátima. Él adoptó a Yenni, también con Síndrome de Down, hija de una pariente lejana que la rechazó al nacer

(3) La diferencia con mi hija es tan grande que me indigna. A esa edad, Fátima estaba en primero básico, aprendiendo a leer. Las dos tienen Síndrome de Down y son tremendamente amadas por sus familias; pero no hay justicia si una puede caminar recién a los 6 años por falta de

THREAD.
Kudos on this multi-sectoral collaboration @THF_INDIA - looking forward to reading the experiences of some of our peer long-stay residents in #mental hospitals.
But crushed to find report about disabled Indians isn't accessible to print disabled.
Plain text version pls! Cover of report with Hans Foundation logo. Picture of a woman sitting on the floor inside a house, absorbed in stitching a bright pink cloth.

Dr. @LisaColemanPhD: You can’t have excellence in #innovation *without* #diversity, #inclusion, #equity *AND* #Belonging

Dr. Lin Zhan to Dr. @LisaColemanPhD: How do #nurseleaders acknowledge #implicitbias? Dr. Coleman explains we all have implicit bias. On #microaggressions: Even well-intended words can do harm. #Leaders must assess their own biases AND how they’re operationalized in their orgs.

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.
/2
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.

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...
