Delighted to be in New York for the launch of #Trialwatch with brilliant @BarHumanRights colleagues @stephencragg1 & @SamuelZimran. BHRC conducts independent trial monitoring across many countries & we value the spotlight brought by trial observations.

Do say hi if you are here!
After a touch of stardust, the #Trialwatch panel has kicked off with a heavyweight #JournalismShouldNotBeACrime panel @MFFahmy11 @cdeloire @jrezaian @JameelJaffer @mariaressa chaired by Helena Kennedy QC. Chilling to hear experiences of journalists imprisoned. Why are they there?
As @MFFahmy11 talks about watching the world from the cage in the Egyptian courtroom, wondering whether the world is watching, a reminder why trial monitoring is so important. @BarHumanRights has monitored trials in Egypt and has raised concerns too on #fairtrials #cages.

@smartlikemum 1- All male panels #manels are unacceptable now. Many resources & support for this. #PLOSCompBio’s “Ten Simple Rules to Achieve Conference Speaker Gender Balance” should help:… @RACSurgeons @NeelaJan @csl888 @DrRachelleENT @drnikkistamp @TimesUpHC @ranzcog

@DrKatrin_Rabiei @ManelWatchUS @_WomenSpeakers_ @LoggheMD @JusticeInMed @WomenSurgeons Ideas – multifaceted approach:
1. Need to Increase awareness; call it out each time. Use #manel alerts – i.e. let Twitter friends know of #manels and they can tweet about each one. Allies can work together. @DrSinhaEsq @JulieSilverMD #ILookLikeASurgeon #genderequity #inclusion /1
@DrKatrin_Rabiei @ManelWatchUS @_WomenSpeakers_ @LoggheMD @JusticeInMed @WomenSurgeons @DrSinhaEsq @JulieSilverMD 2. Are there women in Neurosurg groups? Women surgeons group in Sweden? Create @swedish_s manel #genderequity subgroup? #WomenInNeurosurgery #ILookLikeASurgeon
3. First panel okay with one woman (not ideal, but to help make change); clarify must be > 1woman on panels in future /2

Settling into Session 45: Special 150th Panel: The Future of Classics (Sesquicentennial Workshop, organized by Stephen Hinds, University of Washington, Seattle). Extremely excited for this panel! #AIASCS
Hinds talks about having students who haven't had a class that was entirely about dead people. His class was not about shoring up the dead white men, but getting inside the head of dead people & reading slowly. Hinds asks people to think about the near and distant future #AIASCS
Helen Catherine Cullyer talks about all the types of contributions to classics that are not currently getting properly credited -- online content, teachers at all levels, less traditional format. she also hopes we can DO something about diversity not just talk #AIASCS

As we talk about conference codes of conduct and creating more inclusive events and diverse stages—no more #manels!—I want to share a recent conference experience about an upcoming event at which I’ll be speaking and teaching. (thread)
Next week the @Fluxible UX conference is in Kitchener-Waterloo, near Toronto. Now in its 7th year, it promises “an inclusive, cooperative environment where everyone is welcomed, open dialogue is encouraged, and all perspectives are appreciated.” Let’s unpack that vision! (2/?)
The @Fluxible organizers realize that if “everyone is welcome” and “all perspectives are appreciated,” representation on stage matters. So, they put together a speaker lineup diverse in age, gender, ethnicity, industry, expertise, seniority, geography, and other qualities. (3/?)
