Really excited by this too! We will be sending activities to our students to work on while sheltered at home. Have a short/fun activity you’d like to submit? Thanks to and for your lead on student/community engagement 🔥👏🏾

Though the right framing centers around the distribution of wealth and power for wider-spread prosperity. In other words, people of influence are just selfish — bye!!

Don't think this is happening any more than it was 5-10 years ago. People of influence have long rationalized equity as a threat to their wealth and power, which is true.

My eyes move involuntarily, each one swinging to its own music. They’ve danced this way for as long as I can remember. I can’t see it myself, but the jeering kids let me know. The adults nudging me to wear sunglasses let me know. And trolls certainly let me know. Thread 1/5

“Fall in love with the process of creating — the process of design. Keep an idea file somewhere. Clip screenshots for inspiration. Work on ideas you have on the side when you’re blocked on a project. But whatever you do, keep churning out…” —

I recently did an interview with ! We talked a lot about accessibility and inclusive design. Even watching this, it's awesome to see how much more I've learned in the last two months. Check it out! :)

Call outs are love. Call outs are necessary. Call outs begin a process of accountability. Call outs inform community. Call outs are survivor-centered. Opposition to call outs is more times than not a desire to coddle harmful people/behaviors.

I know "allies" aren't real because Black women fight for everyone else and we've never had a special title for it.

... organizations like Inneract Project that are already doing the work for you.) Upend your hiring practices, and construct bridges for underrepresented communities to enter and succeed (a whole other thing) in technology.

4. As an extension of #3, you’d realize some of the most impactful levers (at least within this current system) include (actually) mitigating bias in your recruiting, as well as creating unconditional, long-term pathways directly to your company (or better yet, supporting...

3. Being a good ally includes recognizing where you can best support. And for white and East Asian designers, mentorship doesn’t often feel like the best way for us to support, given the importance of representation in mentorship.

2. As an extended point, people are rewarded in a number of ways when they merely signal their “good deed”. But the work isn’t in posting; it’s in offering solid mentorship.

... On the real, I’m curious how many folks are putting out those offers without actually having to do the work of mentorship.

Just gonna name that designers offering to review portfolios, consult, or mentor — it all feels performative? Ineffective at best. For a number of reasons: 1. Folks doing this don’t seem to have diverse networks. Like, ghosts signaling ghosts...

seeing tweets from Black students spending hours and hours of their time in meetings with administrators about how the institution can be less racist please, my loves, I beg of you... do not waste your energy on committees and task forces, *esp* if you're not being compensated

Some personal news: I have hung up my hat at my second shift and I am no longer doing any free diversity, equity and inclusion work. That means no more “quick chats” or “let me pick your brain” or “don’t worry the coffee is on me” convos. I’m charging for my time now — it’s wild.

If I harm someone, they have a right to not support me or be in community with me. I can do all the growing I want in the world and they would still have that right. I wouldn't be owed community or support simply because I've "grown" cos my growth does not erase the harm
