I was humbled in our "Embodied Vehicle" @AutomotiveUI workshop today. When we proposed it, we were thinking of discussing:
1) symbiosis between vehicle & driver
2) communicate telematics data to human senses
3) respond to driver's intent from physio data
4) and more...

That was, until we asked the participants to complete the sentence. "The Embodied Vehicle is...".

A participant stated matter-of-fact,"The Embodied Vehicle is one that is currently designed for male bodies." 2/6
Another female participant chimed in,"My husband bought a [SUV]. Adjusting the seat to reach the pedals means that I choke myself with the seatbelt. Also, the seat doesn't fit. I wished I didn't feel every bone in my pelvis every time I braked." 3/6

My first presidential address to the @MineralAreaCC faculty and staff went very well! Such great people to work with, I can't wait to meet them all. I was able to present my vision for the future of MAC today and some of my key points are in this thread, enjoy! #POMAC
@MineralAreaCC Salary Equity

Making a basic cost-of-living increase each year a priority goes a long way in valuing people. Money doesn't equal happiness in employment, but feeling valued does. Knowing your place of employment cares enough to make this a priority is priceless. #POMAC
@MineralAreaCC Accessibility and Tuition

Currently, @MineralAreaCC has one of the lowest tuition rates in the state. This is important for accessibility of our low income region and helping students leave without debt.

What I learnt across 3 days attending sessions on accessibility and disability at the Internet Governance Forum: intgovforum.org/multilingual/

(thread)
- accessibility for disabled users is a long way down the list of priorities
- accessibility for those of us with invisible/cognitive differences is even further down that list
- accessibility is something of a dirty word for both designers and clients. It's seen as an imposition, compromising "good" design and stifling creativity and creative freedom.
- very few people recognise what an accessible web site or app actually looks like

Dear people who identify as having #disabilities fam,

I’m writing to you as your Mayoral Candidate because the media & supporters of status quo are doing their very best to exclude Black Candidates voices- as usual.

Have you been co-signing maintaining the status quo?

#TOpoli
Have you compromised your needs and made agreements against the interests of #accessibility #inclusion, in order to maintain the status quo?

Are you amplifying voices presented to you by the establishment?

#TOpoli #ElectionTO #TORONTO #OurCityHallToo #OurTorontoToo #OurCityHall
Have you turned away from your public chants of “#accessibilityNOW, #inclusion, #equity, #universalDesign, etc...” during this Election period & are instead prepared to publicly/quietly push what the establishment has been pushing just to get the results you’re against?
