A few thoughts on "geographically inclusive" language in medical writing. A thread:

@djillk1 @SRPCanada @RCC_bc @ashleighweeden

#StructuralUrbanism #RuralMedicine #inclusivity
Guidelines and documents are almost exclusively written from an urban bias. Too often the focus is on WHERE the care should be provided (eg in the ER) or by WHO it should be provided (eg by the cardiologist)
But what if you are at a fly-in nursing station in Northern Ontario? How can we change the language so the guidance is appropriate to your environment AND still relevant to a patient in the big city?

1/ Poor utilisation of government health services and lack of awareness of government health insurance impose a heavy economic burden on #LGBTIQ who are already vulnerable due to the stigma around their gender identity.
2/ Gender identity disorders in the WHO classification have been re-conceptualized as gender incongruence and distinguishes between conditions that are relevant to public health and clinical psychopathology and those that merely reflect private behaviour.
3/ We also know that the LGBTIQ community is marginalised and denied basic rights. Specific needs in the form of hormone therapy and gender affirming treatment is also mostly unavailable.

Today I cried at work but4 once they were happy tears coz we finally got clinically approved clear masks!
It was incredible seeing my wonderful colleagues swap over to the new masks as soon as the box arrived in Paeds A&E and being able to understand them instantly.
Its been a year of battling2 understand ppl thro masks, trying my hardest to be a good Dr, worrying abt burden I put on colleagues trying2 communicate w/me, trying to get thro training on par w/ my colleagues & loneliness.
Within a couple of hrs of my team wearing clear masks
I realised just how much I've missed out, how a simple thing cld make such a difference! 😍
I got tearful coz I've been dreaming of clear masks 4 so long& they are finally a reality!
Today was a happy day&I'm so hopeful now for many more days like this.🌈 Thank you @GSTTnhs

The above paper might hopefully be of interest to some of you!

My favorite paper project bears fruit: Creating #leadership collectives for #sustainability transformations. Here is what we have to say: bit.ly/3bbQmWW #openaccess 👇👇👇
We advocate for the creation of leadership collectives: groups of individuals from multiple organisations and sectors who lead transformational social change together through critical #reflection, #inclusivity and #care. Why these three values?
Leadership collectives require critical reflection to transform how collective leadership is defined; to challenge the existing structures in sustainability science and practice; and to respond to the complexity and uncertainty of sustainability transformations.

Accessibility & Inclusivity 📝

⬇️ Thread ⬇️

“There's no such thing as normal“

Inclusive design aims to produce the most effective user expertise for as many of us as attainable. Accessibility isn't solely a problem that applies to individuals with disabilities -

#a11y #WCAG Image
it's a problem that affects everyone. An inclusive world may be a higher world. As a result, we wish to be in the vicinity of that.

What are you saying?? It’s just the domain of UX designer and developer, why does accessibility matter for anyone other:

#accessibility #UX
- The inclusive design will increase access. A social media strategy that considers inclusive design will a similar. while not accessible, you miss out on connecting along with your full potential audience.

The aim of feedback is to promote critical-thinking and problem-solving mechanisms that enable learners to assess their own progress and apply a critically reflective approach to academic work.
#feedback #feedforward #teachingpedagogy #selfregulatedlearning #highereducation
However, text-based feedback has limitations, and, on it's own, is not inclusive.
#feedback #inclusivity #highereducation
“Higher education institutions are being criticised more for inadequacies in the feedback they provide to students than for almost any other aspect of their course..." (Boud & Molloy 2013, p. 698).

Still processing the powerful discussion we had today in our #MA @ARUSociology session on #DecolonisingtheUniversity. A student shared her experiences of growing up in apartheid South Africa & feeling validated & 'seen' by the reading material. Became emotional as she talked
about how #apartheid affected her secondary & higher education in South Africa. Another shared his experiences of racism & racial abuse at his place of work in London, and how he'd envisioned a different kind of life in the UK when he migrated from Nigeria three years
ago. A third talked about being British in Zimbabwe and how her family had tried to convince her that the 'whites' were there to help the 'black people' and how she learnt to resist the 'civilising' narrative of #empire. A fourth discussed how her godfather rolled his eyes at her

(1/2) Not my typical exercise and women's heart health post...The recent events in the US have encouraged me to reflect as a #Canadian #WomenInSTEM Stem on inclusivity and openness in my research team.
(2/4) I welcome and celebrate my team whose cultures and traditions span from Canada, Brazil, Spain, Italy, Japan, India & Australia. There’s more I can surely do, but at the very least I hope I am accessible and open-minded for #inclusivity and #diversity discussions and action.
(3/4) I’ve see many posts which claim the statements made by the US president do not define the US people. I see and support these Congresswomen. @AOC @IlhanMN @RashidaTlaib @AyannaPressley

On this #GlobalAccessibilityAwarenessDay, inspired to hear @lynnekjolso talk about #Inclusivity @Microsoft. One of the best keynotes I've attended i recent years!

Being #inclusive is such a win-win, yet many businesses don't pay enough attention.

#GAAD @CdnMarketing #CMAevents
So many great takeaways from the session.

"#Diversity is I am different.
#Inclusion is I matter."

~Kathleen Hall, CVP Brand, Advertising and Research @Microsoft
"Inclusive culture drives innovation.
Inclusive products remove barriers.
Inclusive #marketing resonates."

Thread: Building an ethical foundation for the AI-driven future @PeriscopeData
First question: What value do you bring to your org. as a data professional? #techskills #businessoutcomes -- likely responses. Then Facebook & #unintendedoutcomes #ODSCWest
Industry starting to confront #ethics in terms of daily applications of #AI algorithms. #Bias based on data - in the case of courts, potentially hundreds of years of biased decisions as part of the training set.
"I'm just an engineer" not an appropriate response. People using #AI products might not understand what or how decisions and predictions are being made, but will be making real world decisions based on them. YOU and your team might be the only ones who do.

What gave me the hope that I desperately needed today.

My 5yo daughter has never showed interest in my magazines but something about the 25th anniversary issue of @WIRED has captured her attention. Tonight as part of her bedtime reading, she picked the magazine.
As she is paging through the magazine asking me questions I notice the amazing number of women that are featured. She definitely notices too. She asks me about many of them, and I tell her their stories.
Then we get to the story about #inclusivity in technology. I help her understand what that means. Then I tell her that I have had the honor of working with @jennylayfluffy. She asks about the picture of Jenny's hands. wired.com/story/wired25-…

Just got to Davos. Ready to fill the leadership vacuum with big ideas. My focus will be on privilege and women. Only going to #womanels #methree. Also, my alligator-skin boots got snow on them, anyone have a blow drier or an FT I can use to dry them off?
Thread 1/n: Small ideas feel big when I'm in my Gulfstream, so here it goes: We have to innovate on innovation. The 7th industrial revolution disrupts AND displaces. Artificial intelligence and blockchain can only solve resurgent populism with #compassion.
2/n We elites are critical to making this debate glocalized. Thought leadership also involves thought stewardship. Communities form the core of our economies. Blue collar workers must be re-conceived as #newcollar workers. Code is key.

For #devopsdaysLDN - Manda’s 5 top tips on inclusive Open Space discussions. [Thread] #Openspaces #inclusivity #devopsdays #unconferences
1. Do the math. A group of 20 people with a 40 min session = 2 mins each. If you talk for 10 mins, which 8 people don’t get to speak?
2. Some folk can interject quickly, others need more time. Allow breathing space for more nervous or considered speakers to find the words
