#bestdadever 💚💙♥️ pre-father's day celebration - because this man is a literal saint and should be celebrated everyday.
He is involved in every part of our kids' lives and helps them grow emotionally everyday. Whenever they are excited, sad, frustrated, happy they always run to dad (on the plus side, dogs always run to me? #petmom ). Although I physically gave birth to these 2, my husband is equally a part of their lives and will likely shape who they are in a equal if not more impactful way than me.
As a society we don't put enough weight on the importance of a dad's role in the life of children and more often than not our legal system and society as a whole makes certain biased assumptions that benefit mothers when it comes to child welfare - I think, specially in today's context, dads have the same level if not sometimes more involvement in a child's life than moms and that should be celebrated that rather than shamed or dismissed.
I also am empathetic and recognize the colossal effort of a lot of moms out there who are raising their little humans alone. I love my mom immensely for raising my siblings and me alone and subsequently supporting me in my decision to go at it alone for a while. I get it. But one thing shouldn't counter another thing out. #fathersrights#dadmoments#diversity#family#equality

In all seriousness though, why are they so afraid of equality?
Good morning beautiful souls out there! ...
Wherever you are on the globe I hope you can feel my love!
With each post, I send you a tiny bit of my energy! ...
Every smile that happens, every giggle, tear, pause or thought
“hmmm maybe she has a point”, “what the hell is she thinking” or whatever reaction you may have.....I can feel it reflect back!
It makes me happy!
It inspires me to move forward using my voice in the best way I can.
Some may view me as the “well loved flower” (wise but old🥰). ...
Some may view me as the “new bud” (if their physical age is greater than mine 🐛🦋.)
Whatever your reaction to my roller coaster ride of content, I hope I’m bringing something to YOU that enriches your soul wherever you are on YOUR journey 🙏🏻
Thank you for sharing this world with me! 🌸

If you want something prepare for it. Start living your life like you already have it.
During most of the day yesterday, a very good friend of mine continued to to teach me how to do more repairs on my car. I must say that I finally feel like I’m beginning to live up to my character Chris in the Speedy Oil campaigns. #FlashBackFriday#FridayFeeling

Diversity of Capabilities
“Teams that possess a wide range of professional competencies can be more fully equipped to meet a wide range of challenges. When building teams, take time to ensure that each team member possesses skills and strengths that complement the skills, strengths and weaknesses of other team members. Bringing together people with common skill-sets can lead to a great deal of discussion with little subsequent action. Ensuring that each team member possesses a unique specialty allows team members to trust each other for certain aspects of performance, while fully understanding what their own contribution is expected to be.”

The Human Library is an event that happened in March 2019 at Northern Arizona University’s Office of Inclusion. This special event creates a safe space where participants discuss topics like stereotypes and discrimination with other people of different backgrounds. Participants get the opportunity to make new connections with their diverse community.
First I made sure to get to know my client, Jonathan P., and conducted some thorough research of the event. I produced visually appealing work, with clean design, pleasant detail, and focused on effectively communicating the event’s information and purpose. The poster is driven by a bold composition. The layout has illustrated and captivating characters literally coming out of a book. Text and graphics are carefully aligned, there is contrast with a range of yellow hues, and negative space is used to enhance the central graphics and information. Texture is used to add pleasant detail. I also created fun buttons with bright colors that would differentiate the participants and their distinct roles as books, librarians, and readers.
We're proud to have celebrated #WDCDDD all week with our employees to help them tell their stories. We will continue to embrace #diversity in not only people, but their ideas as well. Head to our Facebook page to watch their stories. #BuildBrandsInspirePeople
Jenka: "For me, my disability is not really a limitation but an enrichment. I became who I am because things often didn’t work out the first time and thus strengthen myself. Without my disability I would probably not be the same strong person that I am now." Jenka “Voor mij is mijn beperking eigenlijk geen beperking maar een verrijking. Omdat ik zoveel met mijn neus tegen de muur aan te lopen en zo mezelf te versterking ben ik geworden wie ik ben. Zonder mijn beperking zou ik waarschijnlijk niet dezelfde sterke persoon zijn die ik nu ben.” #B3#BondingBeyondBorders#diversity#disability

'You only get one chance to make a first impression.' 🙌 Kicking off the workshop, Fer Lachman started pointing out the best ways to prepare yourself for an interview. What does the company culture look like? How do the employees dress? What are they expecting from you in the role you've applied for? As driven as the women in the Lotus Flower Programme all are: each and everyone had something to add to the list. We're SO proud of you, ladies. Thank you! @salesforce / @salesforce.org
'Je krijgt maar één kans om een eerste indruk te maken.' 🙌 Fer Lachman startte de workshop met het behandelen van de beste manieren om je voor te bereiden op een sollicitatiegesprek. Hoe ziet de bedrijfscultuur eruit? Hoe kleden de medewerkers zich? Wat verwachten ze van jou in de rol waarvoor je je hebt aangemeld? Zo gedreven als de vrouwen in het Lotus Flower-programma zijn, had iedereen iets toe te voegen aan deze lijst. We zijn enorm trots op jullie, dames. Dank! @salesforce / @salesforce.org

#Repost from @theconsciouskid ... “The new Statue of Liberty Museum in New York Harbor revives an aspect of the statue’s long-forgotten history: Lady Liberty was originally designed to celebrate the end of slavery, not the arrival of immigrants. Ellis Island, the inspection station through which million of immigrants passed, didn’t open until six years after the statue was unveiled in 1886. The plaque with the famous Emma Lazarus poem wasn’t added until 1903.
“One of the first meanings [of the statue] had to do with abolition, but it’s a meaning that didn’t stick,” Edward Berenson, a history professor at New York University said.
The monument, which draws 4.5 million visitors a year, was first imagined by a man named Édouard de Laboulaye. In France, he was the president of a committee that raised and disbursed funds to newly freed slaves.
In June 1865, Laboulaye organized a meeting of French abolitionists.
“They talked about the idea of creating some kind of commemorative gift that would recognize the importance of the liberation of the slaves [in America],” Berenson said.
An early model, circa 1870, shows Lady Liberty with her right arm in the position we are familiar with, raised and illuminating the world with a torch. But in her left hand she holds broken shackles, an homage to the end of slavery. In the final model, the broken chains are still there though, beneath her feet. Liberty Enlightening the World” was “unveiled” on Oct. 28, 1886 — but by then, “the original meaning of the abolition of slavery had pretty much gotten lost.”

THIS is why we need more women in Corporate Boardrooms, Women know what Women Want. The clip is from the 1992 movie Boomerang. The lady standing next to Eddie Murphy is Robin Givens and her real claim to fame is as Mike Tyson’s first wife before he was jailed on a rape charge, also in the same year (‘92) ✌🏽✌🏽✌🏽🎱✌🏽✌🏽✌🏽🎱✌🏽✌🏽✌🏽🎱✌🏽✌🏽✌🏽🎱✌🏽✌🏽✌🏽🎱✌🏽✌🏽✌🏽🎱✌🏽✌🏽✌🏽🎱✌🏽✌🏽✌🏽🎱✌🏽✌🏽✌🏽🎱✌🏽✌🏽✌🏽🎱✌🏽✌🏽✌🏽🎱✌🏽✌🏽✌🏽🎱✌🏽✌🏽✌🏽🎱✌🏽✌🏽
