Ab Dezember wird das im Dezernat der Oberbürgermeisterin neu eingerichtete Amt für Integration und Vielfalt seine Arbeit aufnehmen. Es wird fortan die fachlichen Kompetenzen mehrerer Dienststellen zu den Themen Einwanderung, Integration, Vielfalt und Inklusion unter einem Dach zu bündeln. Zudem werden im neuen Amt, das derzeit rund 80 Mitarbeiterinnen und Mitarbeiter umfassen wird, wichtige Querschnittsaufgaben strategisch und teils auch operativ zentral gesteuert. Auf diese Weise sollen Zuständigkeiten und Prozesse transparenter und effizienter gestaltet werden.
Oberbürgermeisterin Henriette Reker: Für Köln ist Vielfalt eine Stärke und fester Bestandteil der kulturellen Identität dieser Stadt. Integration, Vielfalt und Inklusion sind für uns zentrale Aufgaben, die wir mit dem neuen Amt noch besser bündeln wollen."

Why does diversity in tech matter? ⠀
Let’s take it back to 2014 when Apple first launched its Health app, which promised to "monitor all of your metrics that you’re most interested in”. Now you were able to track your calorie intake, alcohol consumption, heart rate, even track your selenium intake, yet tracking your period was not an option…⠀
One of the largest companies in the world failed to include a tool that women, ie 1 in 2 people, might find very useful. Plenty of period tracking apps were already available on the Apple Store. Women have tracked their menstruation cycle for thousands of years! Could the reason for this oversight be that Apple’s workforce is 68% globally? Very likely. At Hustle Crew we believe that a more diverse and inclusive team brings innovation. ⠀

Tomorrow we will be in Ajax where another group of young coders will be taking the plunge into the world of coding with our "Kids Writing Code" workshop. They will learn to build a multi-page website as well as hack an existing design to make it their own. Your kids can become the next generation of coders and innovators, and we are here to help guide them along the way. Check out techspark.ca for other upcoming workshops.

This relates to the law of averages, which is the theory that the result of any given situation will be the average of all outcomes. But having such #diversity will mean improved #productivity

Very excited to start reading Belonging by @michelleobama.
Michelle, for me, is a 'real' model.
MsChief's are real models.
A real model is so much more than a role model.
Real models show up, exactly as they are. They have the messy conversations. They share their vulnerabilities and their imperfections. They speak their truth, even if it is unpopular. They are peaceful disruptors intent on making the world more inclusive and a better place for the future.
MsChief's fundamentally believe that love will always trump hate and that we are all enough.
Exactly as we are.
We all belong. We all have a right to take up space and to be ourselves, and to be accepted for ourselves regardless of our labels.
No one person is more deserving than another.
We all belong

#CareerTip Tuesday: Treat everyone with kindness, not because they are nice, but because you are.
Being a part of a simple mission to help others, staying #kind is one of the greatest values you can keep and in return, you’ll see how easy it gets passed on to others. Doing benevolent acts to other people just to make yourself feel good defeats the purpose of being kind. Its deeper purpose is to become more selfless and understanding to other people who need our help. It means becoming an empathetic and compassionate human, thus understanding and accepting other’s differences. Here’s 7 scientific benefits of helping others:
1. Helping others can help you live longer.
2. Altruism is contagious.
3. Helping others makes us happy.
4. Helping others may help with chronic pain.
5. Helping others lowers blood pressure.
6. Helping others promotes positive behaviors in teens.
7. Helping others gives us a sense of purpose and satisfaction.
#DiversityMatters | #WorldKindnessDay 💭🌏
Warning: this is a ranty post but I need to get this off my chest. Typically I’m a home body. I am comfortable in my own space in my apartment, it’s where I’m in my “element.” Lately I’ve been out and about more then usual: going on dates, hanging out with friends, & attending other events. I live in Chicago, on the lake.. & yes, it’s pretty damn frigid outside. EVERY SINGLE TIME I have stepped out of my apartment (without a jacket on) I’ve gotten comments. “You need to go put a jacket on” “Where is your jacket!?” “Do you want my shall?” And recently I’ve been made aware that a service worker has made a derogatory comment towards me as he saw me leaving without a jacket on. Normally, I can get past this. But it’s reaching a boiling point. Do I like freezing my ass off, NOOOO! To the contrary, I hate the cold. So let me explain: putting on a jacket is cumbersome and inconvenient. When I go out without a jacket, I’m walking within a 5 min radius or hopping in an Uber. I’m not climbing Mount Everest (can’t walk let alone climb) The logistics of having a disability and putting on a jacket: a person needs to be here right before I leave to wherever I’m going (not practical). If a person is here, they can put it on me and even then it’s cumbersome and uncomfortable. If said person isn’t going with me to said place, I’m stuck in this jacket basically making me completely immobile. I cannot move in a damn jacket! I understand people’s concern about a skinny disabled woman not wearing a jacket in cold weather. However, there’s a reason to my actions. I’m an adult and I can make my own decisions. I can be cold for 5 min in order to leave to go somewhere at my own discretion without needing someone to be here to help me. If I’m going to be out any longer then 5 min, you better believe I’m turning myself into a disabled scarf burrito girl. So, before you express concern, maybe think that someone has a reason for what they’re doing, even if it seems irrational to you.
Wouldn’t it be great for @victoriassecret to bring more diversity & hire models with disabilities...?! •Just because somebody has a physical disability, it does not mean you’re no longer beautiful, handsome, sexy OR worthy!!🙌💯
*Having a disability does NOT mean, powerless, unable, unattractive, unworthy, etc!
Even though I feel that’s what the gen STEREOTYPES ARE!!😩
•Honestly had I seen someone in a wheelchair in a Victoria’s Secret show, after my accident, I would’ve felt empowered! It would’ve helped me believe “I CAN also be beautiful and sexy in my ♿️!!” but it has NOT happened in the 13 years I’ve been injured!!😱
•I am disheartened to hear that in this day in age, @victoriassecret isn’t open to bringing more diversity for their shows!😱 What do you think? Comment below ⤵️
•Most people hear inclusion or diversity & they just think of different backgrounds/skin tones but most people don’t think of people w/ disabilities!!💯
•We need to pave the way for generations to come! to feel represented & see themselves as beautiful & powerful! There needs to be more ACCEPTANCE & INCLUSION!!👊♿️ #representationmatters
•Click Link IN BIO For my FULL blog post in English & Spanish & to see MORE PICS of THIS shoot!!!😉❤️👆
A poco no sería genial que @victoriassecret muestre más diversidad y contrate a modelos con discapacidad? •Sólo porque alguien tenga una discapacidad física, no quiere decir que ya no eres, guapo/bella, sexy o que no valgas!!🙌💯 •Una discapacidad no quiere decir que una persona sea incapaz, sin poder, inatractiva, que no tengas valor etc. Aunque creo que así son los estereotipos en nuestra sociedad!😩
•Honestamente si yo hubiera visto a alguien en ♿️ en un show de VICTORIAS SECRET después de mi accidente, me hubiera súper EMPODERADO y me hubiera hecho pensar que “yo también puedo ser bella y sexy en mi silla♿️...” Y me hubiera ayudado a creer más en mí misma!! *Pero la triste realidad es que NO ha pasado en los 13 años que yo tengo de lesionada!! Tu qué opinas? ⤵️
