- HBX Final Reflections: Economics for Managers – Economic Consent and Willingness to Pay or Sell (#BusinessyBrunette HBX Week 10) | Creatrix Tiara at medium (20 March): “How different would our thinking around economics be if we added consent into the equation? If we stopped assuming that someone who paid a particular price did it of their own free will? If we consider the constraints that coercion, desperation, and vulnerability place on our economic choices?”
- Fundraising, Activism, and Who Gets Paid | Annalee at The Bias (15 March): “This is important, because while activist labor is often essential to marginalized people’s survival in a particular community, it’s also emotionally exhausting and has high rates of burnout. Paying the people who actually do the work doesn’t just show respect for the value of their labor; it also enables them to make time for it so that they can continue to contribute without burning out.”
- “‘Women in Computing’ As Problematic”: A Summary | Elizabeth Patitsas (14 March): “In 2005-6, Sturman conducted an institutional ethnography of the graduate CS programmes at two research-intensive universities in Ontario. In institutional ethnography, one starts by “reading up”: identifying those who have the least power and interviewing them about their everyday experiences. From what the interviews reveal, the researcher then goes on to interview those identified as having power over the initial participants.”
- Guest post – Zen Cho on ‘My Year of Saying No’ | Juliet E. McKenna (17 March): “I’m still not as good at saying no as I should be, but I’ve already been accused of being grand for the appalling crime of not answering emails. I wonder whether the same accusation would be lobbed at me if I was a white man. We expect men, especially white men, to be rude geniuses. But it seems we feel entitled to the time and energy of women, especially Asian women.”
- Watch: ‘The 4%’ Furthers The Conversation About The Film Industry’s Gender Problem | nix Santos as Indiewire (15 March): “In “The 4%,” not only are we presented with facts and statistics that express the tragic difference in numbers between men and women working in the industry, but we also get to hear directly from directors and creative personalities themselves as they shed light on what they have seen themselves.”
