Seeking and seeking a complete understanding of the company you want to work for is not a bad idea. You’re good at giving compliments, really. But how many companies see it that way? If you want to live up to your values, ask the hard questions and you’ll get the answers, but the answers come at a price. there is. As an aside, most companies work against women’s interests in some way. If you want to think more broadly about a fair workplace, you should also consider parental leave policies, gender pay ratios, work-life balance commitments, and anything else that contributes to a healthy work environment.

Create thoughtful emails to our mailing list about events and issues You might get a one-line response like this: Instead of doing this event, all resources should be repatriated to the first people of this land! Why is there no transparency about issue XYZ which is not at all in the email subject line?
I’m not really sure what to do with these emails. They refer to causes, ideologies and practices that I advocate but fail to recognize the mission, needs and realities of our particular organization. These notes use up a great deal of emotional energy, but not in a way that I find useful or productive. increase. It feels misplaced, projected, and malicious. Instead of yelling at evil tech lords, they are ranting at marginalized members of their communities. I don’t think they are really trying to have a conversation with me or the organization I work for. Attempts to destroy a target you actually have access to can be almost repulsive.

In progressive space, the goal posts often appear to be in constant motion. This is largely because the most vulnerable among us are at stake. Addressing that need requires more than resources. Constant activity is the way the most meaningful change has ever happened. And as recent events have shown us, when we do not relent, we lose a valuable position.
You are not tone policing. You are frustrated because you are doing your best and doing a good job, and you want your efforts to be recognized by the community you are a part of. Hardly anything. These criticisms, if well-intentioned, can be productive and contribute to positive change. This is not so.
As you’ve noticed, when people respond with off-topic one-liners, they’re not engaging in good faith. They don’t have bad intentions, but they do the simplest things possible to feel they are making a difference. They have nothing to do with you or your job. They are sent by people who want to share their opinions and know that if anyone listens, it is likely to be someone like you. It’s expensive, but that’s an explanation, not an excuse.
