We're live with Brittni Lundie of @Uber! Join us to learn about making diversity & inclusion a reality for your organization: bit.ly/2ogGULU
#iwil #TeVE #TeVirtualEvent
@Uber "Diversity is having people from all different backgrounds, schools, majors, ages, gender - a bit of everyone everywhere."
@Uber "Inclusion is making sure everyone is feeling like they're being their authentic selves."
@Uber Brittni makes sure her pipeline of recruitment is diverse, and her events and programs make everyone feel included. Ex. an event simulating the Black Barbershop experience, getting a haircut while allowing black men to talk about their experience in tech.
@Uber It's now a signature event for @Uber interns - and she's hoping to extend it to all black and latin male interns in the Bay.
@Uber Her women's event with a panel of women engineer leaders talking about being a woman in tech. Interns were able to speak directly with VPs and other leaders they don't always have access to.
@Uber Bias is not always intentional - it's about speaking up to point out where unintentional bias is affecting our organization's choices. #bias
@Uber Being inclusive right where you're at - look at your own team and see what ideas or perspectives you might be missing. #inclusive
@Uber You don't have to have a D&I title to promote diversity and inclusion in your organization!
@Uber Who is sitting at your dinner table? Diversity & Inclusion should go beyond work into your social life.
@Uber Measure success by looking at where you're at - where are you missing diversity, what's your interview process, how inclusive is your environment?
@Uber Everyday steps - educating (ERGs), be open to learning with communities other than your own; speak up about where you see D&I needs!
@Uber ERG - employee resource group: open to everyone, but learning and listening to one group within an organization.
@Uber What challenges does Brittni face? Awareness, getting people to think outside their routine. She gives them ideas and a solution!
@Uber The best way to increase diversity is to "funnel up" from the university level!
@Uber @Uber has been one of the most progressive as far as D&I, most open to her ideas.
@Uber Pitch it correctly - cost effectiveness, what are they already doing that can be added on to? Getting buy-in from people who can also promote the idea.
@Uber Getting to know employees is the most important part about making them feel included, especially when new to the job. If you know who they are, you can understand their work better.
@Uber Call it out - but watch your language around it. "This is how what you said made me feel." A person can deny racism/bigotry but not how their words or actions make you feel.
@Uber What's the D&I ratio? There's isn't really one - maybe when we get to the point where we don't need D&I because it's engrained in the company culture.
@Uber That was an amazing event. Thank you so much to Brittni Lundie for your insights! We're feeling #inspired to examine our #DiversityandInclusion practices!

Starting with an exercise to see where we are all coming from. Not geographically, but measuring our white privilege through a series of questions. We are all coming to this conversation from different places, we recognize and embrace this. #BringPeopleTogether #TeVE
@EquitySupt1 reminds us that Feb. is set aside for #BlackHistoryMonth. Learnings that have come from Martin Luther King for Dennis - racial metamorphosis. White allies for MLK? He found them amongst other clergy. He called on them to be a part of his work. #BringPeopleTogether

We're LIVE for the 2nd in a 3-part series around #EquityinEducation! We are grateful to have @DrDBL & @SuptEnfield joining us today for this important conversation. Follow along in this thread ⤵️ #BringPeopeTogether #TeVirtualEvents @EquitySupt1 @KafrissenKai Leading for DE&I While White - The 2nd Part in a 3 part seri
@KafrissenKai starts us off with a group activity to recognize our White Privilege. Kai acknowledges that she is showing up today in her own way, and leaning into these conversations as best she can. How are you showing up today? #BringPeopleTogether #TeVirtualEvents
@EquitySupt1 reminds us why we are bringing people together for this work. 90% of school district leaders in the US are white. 90% also stated that the work of #DEI is important but only 20% believe that they are equipped with the skills and talent to lead this work! #Equity

We're LIVE with Dr. Devon Horton, @EquitySupt1 & @KafrissenKai to learn about how to establish working definitions on the equity journey. Follow along in this thread ⤵️ and by using #TeVirtualEvents and #TeVE.
We are thrilled to see over 100 people making this virtual event a priority! Think of this #TeVE as a prerequisite to your #equity conversations. We will look at how to establish definitions, gain consensus to avoid triggering participants, & lead productive conversations. #DEI
@KafrissenKai - We are stronger together! What is Kai seeing with our customers around #DEI? Leaders are making this an ongoing conversation! Shared definitions are helping to avoid different meanings for different people to facilitate our learning. #BringPeopleTogether
