5am thoughts: One of the challenges for men in #leadership positions in #tech who want to increase #inclusion and #diversity in our orgs, is that first we need to first recognize our own #privilege before knowing what conscious actions to take in our orgs & company-wide... 1/14
First, credit to my colleague @bjohnso5y. Her post on how to be a better #ally for #womenintech emphasized the mechanism of #recognition (e.g. crediting women for their ideas in public spaces). The goal of better #allyship inspired this thread... 2/14

In the sphere of political debate, you’ll often hear white people (especially men) arguing they don’t have privilege and don’t get special treatment. "Everything’s a meritocracy!" "Nobody 'gave' me anything!" - Nothing to see here, move along… 3/14

At #MSBizAppsSummit trying to give this #CringeWorthy #WomenInTech panel the benefit of the doubt. They chose a white actress #GinaDavis to #keynote a #DiversityInTech chat. Hmmm. #refactrtech #womenwhocode #DiversityAndInclusion @RefactrTech @Microsoft
Gina Davis: we don't have enough #female #rolemodels [in tech] so we need to make them up [in film]. If she can see it she can believe it. Me: #BS there are many awesome #womenintech who could be speaking here. Still trying to give this keynote a chance.
Gina Davis on #metoo: Just don't take your dick out and we'll be fine. Me: that's a pretty low bar. #Refactrtech #womenintech #womenwhocode #DiversityInTech #MSBizAppsSummit

I hope that folks find my social media timelines marked by trying to give encouragement and helpful information. I'm sharing public speaking tips in today's thread:
Have you ever wondered how to time your talks? Most folks talk 100-125 words per min. If you transcribe your talk ahead of time, a 3000 word talk ends up being around 30 min or so depending on intro, questions, etc. Each min of mp3 audio corresponds to about 1mb of file size.
You need to do a few things if you want to become an effective public speaker:
1) Write things down. Sometimes you hear a quote or thought that may be useful later. Jot it down. (I've used @evernote for years). When something inspires you or makes you think - capture it.

I met so many amazing women in the quality field at @AgileTD! 👩🏾‍💻👩🏻‍💻👩🏼‍💻 Here's some Twitters you should all follow (an #AgileTD meets #FF-even-though-it's-not-a-Friday thread):
Let's start with @cswesepieces, who has the craziest stories about conservative Ohio colliding with very Indian India and about living on the Polish/Mexican border in Chicago. She instantly made me feel welcome at speakers' dinner! 🥰 #AgileTD #womenintech
There's the awesome @FaizaYousuf, who gave a keynote on the serious topic of cross-cultural Agile transformations going not-so-smooth, but kept us laughing (and learning) throughout. 🤩 Super smart, super balanced, an Agile superhero & skilled listener! #AgileTD #womenintech

Please do not mention #Narcos or #Escobar when you hear Medellin!

Do @realStuartReges’s opinions affect his teaching? See 2:20-3:30 of this lecture to of hundreds of students. The “news, or whatever” that he’s reacting to is @susanthesquark ’s Uber blog post published 3 days prior. uw.hosted.panopto.com/Panopto/Pages/… 1/8
Imagine you’re a woman in this class. You expect toxic behavior to be denounced. Instead, your instructor disdainfully sighs that this behavior has revived “the big push these days” to get more #diversity in tech. You wonder whether he is glad you're here. 2/8
Imagine you’re a man in this class. You believe the stories of the #womenintech around you. You think @womentechmakers is neat. You’d like to help. Your instructor just showed you that he disagrees. You decide it’s safer to stay quiet. 3/8

I went to @MicroConf this week and it was amazing. I learned so much. Here are a few highlights! This thread will be useful to you if you are bootstrapping a business or you want to build a business on your own one day. #MicroConf 1/18
Everyone I met was great. They shared their ups & downs without hesitation. We didn’t talk about just business. We talked about work-life balance, breastfeeding, sleep training, traveling w/ kids and how loving your kids unconditionally goes a long way. #MicroConf 2/18
I always felt welcome to join an ongoing group conversation or to strike up a new one. People would open their circle immediately. #MicroConf 3/18

Thread of resources! A friend just asked me to give him some links on articles on why women are underrepresented in tech which are written for a popular audience. Here's a roundup of articles I sent him. #womenintech #womeninSTEM (1/n)
First off, one should know that CS was once female dominated in the West: npr.org/sections/money… (2/n)
One should also know that CS is female dominated in some countries today, like Malaysia and Qatar, and that many non-Western countries have near-parity in their CS majors. patitsas.blogspot.ca/2013/10/why-ar… (3/n)

I love that on #InternationalWomensDay we take the time to celebrate women, it's brilliant. What would be even more brilliant is if we did this every day. For the next 365 days, I am going to add a Tweet a day in celebration of women from around the world 🌍 Let's get started 👇
Day 1: @drpriaero is an Aerospace Engineer / Senior Research Associate at @UniofOxford's Department of Engineering Science, researching fluid dynamics & thermodynamics of jet engines 🚀 #IWD2018 #IWDEveryDay
Day 2: @monicasarbu created @packetbeat, an open source data shipper, before joining forces with @elastic to lead the Beats team. She's a mum while at it too 💪 #IWD2018 #IWDEveryDay
