Our mission at the Kids Being Kids Foundation is to improve the welfare and #development of the most #vulnerablechildren through play and extra-curricular activities.
A part of this is their physical #environment, which studies have shown profoundly influences developmental outcomes including academic achievement, cognitive, social and emotional #development.
One of the #vulnerable groups we want to support are the #Children of the Wesley School for the #hearingimpaired in Surulere. Their #landscaping is in dire need of a facelift.

Love when you learn a helpful tip before an event even begins. To make Zoom calls more inclusive for #TGNC folks, you can add pronouns to your Display Name
1. Hover over your own video (or name)
2. Select the ellipsis (…)
3. Select “rename” & type pronouns after your name

Good freaking question: "Why do we continue to make people go through harmful user journeys?"

@maxmasure describes the complicated & cruel procedure to change their name. The family certificates & husband permission...shocking

#TDOV #InclusiveDesign #CivicTech #SocialImpact 1. French name 2. DMV 3. TLDEF 4. US lawyer 5. Request (ex) Evidence required in France for request to change name: 1. c
@jessi_mons and @MadelenaMak advocate for #userresearch to focus less on demographics & more on what people do and who they are. Gender isn't always relevant and methods should reflect that

@baba_Omoloro how about a weekend meet-up on schooling abroad and scholarship opportunities?
It's simple:
*30 participants
*Someone here can get us the venue
*Participants can provide refreshments themselves
*Cost of @boltapp_ng of Peter on me
*Video call with @MomentsWithBren
The space should be for FREE.
So we can all learn and achieve our desire.

Show interest in the comment section and @DAdesalu will aggregate interested individuals and partners.

FIRST IS THE SPACE TO BE USED!

@callmebukunmi sir, hope you know you are working with @DAdesalu on this aggregation.

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.

I'm switching my time and effort doing stuff to generate exponential knowledge that cross fertilises domains. Design entrepreneurship for #Socialimpact

I'm done with/ revenue models.

My life, your money. #VC #startup idea. #nanotechnology #AI #PMxD

The idea is to create knowledge skills and making capabilities, with emerging Exponential technologies intersecting smart devices, cloud computing, Artificial Intelligence, nanotechnology, robotics to create products and services that leverage the democratic power of tech. 2/
It's experimentation all the way. Research is okay, but experimentation and prototyping go much farther in understanding problems better and better. That's the design way. Exploring alternatives over picking from existing solutions. We're trying to impact a billion. #PMxD 3/

1/ Organisations need generalist advisers who are not attached to their experience and expertise. Fresh eyes + deep understanding of individuals across cultural divides will mark emerging consulting paradigms. This will put pressure on business schools.
2/ In the words of @davidsrose "All companies designed to succeed in the 20th century are doomed to fail in the 21st century."

Several reasons -

The new world is digital. The new generation is digital. Change is on an accelerating curve. Learning is not. #futureofwork
@davidsrose 3/ Companies are led by people trained on industrial age methods by industrial age academics in industrial age institutions. Leadership is about growing existing portfolios by scaling. #Innovation means disrupting existing mindsets and methods. This is new. #futureofwork
