Diversity. You need this in your life. Because hey, look around you and see how diverse the world is. Just a little bit of everything and all together we form one team. Ok, not always. But if you just forget about stupid wars and crazy extremists the world is a beautiful place. Most of the time. Just like my breakfast. It may not be the best pic I ever took, but diverse it is. #diverseating #miketweepuntnul #breakfast #diversity #diversitymatters #love #food #different #oneteam #eat #eating #egg #cheese #foodporn #foods #foodie #foodpic #foodphotography #foodgasm #foodstagram #instafood #foodforthought #foodlover #healthyfood #foodstyling #eten #eetsmakelijk #goodmorning 🏳️‍🌈

I don't personally believe that everything happens for a reason. I do however believe that we can choose to allow everything that happens to us to serve us in some way. Sometimes terrible things happen that we have no control over. People get sick, we have our hearts broken, we lose someone we love, our mental health is tested...the list goes on. It can be very easy to be completely broken by any of these things. However, while you may not have the ability to prevent these sadnesses, you do have the opportunity to choose to learn from them, grow from them, seek new perspective because of them, and to make them mean something. Finding opportunities for lightness within the dark is a truly powerful healing tool and world changer. Some of the most incredible women out there have responded to great tragedies with immense courage and strength in order to create beautiful and powerful changes in this world. @turiapitt responded to almost losing her life in a fire by choosing to show the world what she is capable of and teaching them that they are capable of incredible things too. @carlyfindlay who has a rare, severe skin condition Ichthyosis choose to better the world by becoming an appearance advocate and challenging the way we perceive and treat people based on their physical differences. @lifewithsarahjade and @ailaandlior channelled the enormous grief of their pregnancy losses into their @thestillmamatribe podcast in order to create a supportive community in which to explore and honour stories of loss. @jessicasmith27 and @sarahherron who have limb differences, have both found ways to help others living with disabilities to appreciate their value and to fully realise their capabilities. @katiepiper_ rebuilt her life after a horrifying acid attack, and chose to create a foundation to help support other burns survivors in their rehabilitation. A paragraph on each of these women doesn't even begin to do them justice. They have all responded to circumstances beyond their control by actively choosing to be their best selves and to make this world better. Whose story inspires you? #incrediblewomen #empoweredwomenempowerwomen

Happy (belated) Makar Sankranti! 🎈 . . . For all my non Indian friends - Makar Sankranti is a festival celebrated all over India in different ways. It is to mark the augment of harvest season and longer days. But for me, the special thing about this festival was having kite-flying parties, having friendly banters while flying kites, watching the blue sky turn colourful, lighting floating lanterns at night and eating til laddus (round sweets made out of sesame). A very popular saying on this day is “Til gud ghya god god bola” meaning “Eat sweet stuff and say sweet things”. So with my til laddu in one hand, I wish you guys a very happy rest of the week! . . . #mummalovesakira #mummalovessamara #conappingsiblings #diversitymatters #desikids #makarsankranti2019 #cultivatingchildren #seekthepositive #pocket_sweetness #candidchildhood #momblogger #mumbaimom #toddlermom #stlmoms #my_magical_moments #thisjoyfulmoment #ig_motherhood #documentyourdays #everydaymoments #kidsforreal #childhoodunplugged #ohheymama #influencer #314parent #thehappynow

Rep Waters got them answers she was@looking for. Now let’s see what CBS does #diversitymatters

I've stayed relatively silent over the past few days as I listened, read and learned. I held back because I was unsure of what to say, where my place was in the conversation and out of fear of saying the wrong thing. I am fortunate enough to live in a diverse city where my personal and professional life is rich with people of all races, ethnicities, religions and sexual orientations. I am also guilty of being complicit in a system that perpetuates racism and white privilige. It's not enough to only speak out when you see overt racism and inequality. We have to do better. Our community has historically ignored and silenced BIPOC and it's not ok. It's not ok to only see white faces in our magazines, on our project pages and in our social media feeds. We can't blame it on algorithms or a lack of exposure. Our world is white because we have allowed it to stay that way. Because it takes effort to seek things out that are outside our comfort zone. It's so easy to stay where it's warm and comfortable. Newsflash...it's time to get a little uncomfortable. Over the past few days I have heard stories from old friends and new. Stories of being ignored, dismissed, made to feel unwelcome, made to feel like their place in this community is less valuable than mine. Hinestly? These stories made me uncomfortable. I didn't want to believe that the community I love, that is so welcoming to me isn't that way for everyone. The good that has come from this conversation is that many of us are confronting our biases, seeking out new voices and making new friends. It is my hope that we can move forward on this journey as a community and be stronger at the end. There is still a lot of work to be done and I'm sure we will stumble. I will stumble. But it is my hope that we will continue to pick each other up and move forward with love. ~~~~~ If you're looking for makers, designers and dyers for inspiration please check these workderful ladies out. @ramonafirehorse @pearadiseisland @mekamikashop @ggmadeit @transitory @thebluebrickish @thebrightblooms @heybrownberry @creativececi @threegreenbananas @drunkknitter @frutaguayaba @knittingexpat

She should have already been there. “Missy Elliott to be first female rapper to enter Songwriters Hall of Fame.” Thanks for smashing that machismo glass ceiling Missy!! #missyelliot still #supadupafly

Next week I’m volunteering with @rosedaleda to read this book #rubybridges in a classroom at my local elementary school. It’s their annual RISE event: Reading Inspirational Stories to Empower - that happens during MLK week. I don’t have the slightest clue what it was like to be Ruby Bridges and be the token child to desegregate a school so spending 30 minutes reading and engaging in dialogue with some local students is the least I can do. I’m grateful for the opportunity to enter a classroom that’s also 100% more diverse than the elementary school that I grew up in. #diversitymatters #empoweringyouth

DAY 2 WITH @alondralaot 😁✊🎉 “Applying to Schools: Are you looking into different OT/OTA programs? Aside from location what else do you look for? I personally think it's a good idea to look for schools that offer what best supports your needs and learning styles. If you know you are someone who would benefit from more one-to-one support, then consider class sizes or teacher-student ratio. Maybe you are someone who is very kinesthetic and/or visual and so programs with labs, simulations, etc. may also be things to look in to. For some, additional campus resources such as veteran support, counseling, health care, writing/testing supports, etc. may be very important to you, so make sure to do your research on these areas as well. This is your future and it’s an investment, so do your research and find the program(s) that speak to you and please, please, PLEASE go to an orientation IF you can. (Some schools offer virtual orientations. :-) Follow your heart and good luck! - Alondra La OT”. . . #diversitymatters #ot365 #occupationaltherapy #occupationaltherapist #occupationaltherapyassistant #otstudent #otschool #newgradot #futureot #futureota #mot #msot #otd #cota

#realtalk: I am lucky to have my job at Google.🙏 Let me clarify by what I mean by that. When people read this statement, they automatically say to me: No, Chi! You worked hard to get here! Women often feel like they don't belong! You deserve this! But I didn't say anything about not deserving this, or that I didn't work hard to get here. I DID work my ass off and I tried many times before I got this job at @google. When I say I am lucky to have my job at Google, I mean that I have ALSO been fortunate enough in my life to have met the right people who gave me a leg up, have had the right circumstances at work that helped me grow, have had access to the right resources at the right time. THAT, my friends, is my privilege. And my privilege gave me a much better chance at ending up here, where I am, than many others in this world. As I move through my first week at Google, I am awed and inspired by how much of an emphasis there is on doing GOOD for the world... on taking seriously the question: How can you use your own privilege and knowledge and tools and experiences to LIFT OTHERS UP? I am lucky to have my job at Google, in more ways than one. Because now I get the chance to really put into action the words: Together, we are better. . . . #noogler #womenintech #techlady #diversityandinclusion #diversitymatters #diversityintech #techworld #googler #embraceyourreal #bebetterdobetter #bebetter #bebetterthanyouwereyesterday #bebettertoday #loveforall

Returning to Rachel's session and story today, here's another glimpse: "But what always saves her from the brink of despair, loneliness, or overwhelm is her curiosity. Relentless in pursuing her quest for learning, Rachel is a perpetual knowledge seeker: 'I love to learn,' she says, 'Anything and everything. I like the BBC’s Spaces podcast, I have one on bees and I have another one on French.' Aside from books and podcasts, courses and articles, however, Rachel also learns daily from her patients and her children, who push her to exercise more patience and more empathy. Whether she’s got an abusive patient in the ER or Reese and Aleaha are fighting, Rachel always leans toward empathy (even when it’s hard, especially when it’s hard): 'I like to think that I see what a person is going through,' she says, 'and I take it into account, asking myself why she’s behaving like that. There’s something behind that behaviour. In emergency services (including the military) as well as fostering, thick skins aren’t just necessary, they’re a requirement for survival.'"

In my feelings

INCLUSIVE LANGUAGE Language is a powerful tool for building inclusion & exclusion. It can be used to create a sense of being valued, respected & one of the team OR of being under-valued, disrespected, & ‘outsider’. Inclusive language enables a diversity of people to feel valued, respected & able to contribute their talents. Studies show that noninclusive language contributes to & continues stereotyping, harms people who witness it, as well as the intended targets. Frequent non-inclusive experiences have just as harmful effects as more intense but less frequent experiences (e.g. sexual coercion,harassment). Inclusive language is not about being ‘politically correct’ – it is about using language which is respectful, accurate, & relevant to everyone. Focus on the person first, rather than the demographic group they belong to. Only refer to an individual’s age, cultural background, gender etc. if it is relevant. Further, try not to stereotype individuals from particular groups, even when the stereotype is positive (e.g. asians are good at maths). It can be uncomfortable to challenge non-inclusive language, especially when it’s coming from powerful or influential people. But doing so can increase our increase our confidence & promote inclusion for all. When we confront someone about their language, not only are they less likely do it again, they are also more likely to change their views on what is appropriate behaviour - as are any bystanders.
