Like I said yesterday during #WFFChat: It's better to be respected than liked (in the workplace).
You know that saying 'nice guys finish last'?I think it should be changed to nice girls finish last.You see, all this niceness gets in the way of our internal 'value calculator', or what we each believe gives us value as humans. When our value calculator computes in our minds as being intrinsically attached to our behaviour, instead of our skills, knowledge, or experience, the result is an unfortunate devaluing of ourselves and what we bring to t...

My newest feminist crush (AND Twitter mate!!!) +Saara Särmä is interviewed in +The Guardian about her #allmalepanel  Tumblr account (its origins and rationale, etc.). 

"They are saying that they are going to have the most qualified person, but who is most qualified is not an objective thing. It’s a value judgment. We tend to see men as more qualified, or as more of an expert.....

In Finland we tend to think “Oh we’re so equal” and people say: “Oh feminists, what are you complaining about here?” Gender equality is a process. It goes backward and it goes forward and it’s really dangerous to think that we’ve already achieved it. There’s a lot of that kind of thinking in Finland that we’ve achieved gender equality and now feminists are taking it too far. As if you could take equality too far, when by definition you can’t be too equal."

#AfricaDay was earlier in May (it seems); but these quotes are still worth sharing!
"We Africans have to be able to deal with our problems. Help from outside is alright, but we have to learn to be responsible for our own attitudes."

Social PR for Business: Relating the Inside Out™ (March 12, 2013)
Introduction
Newest news (May 2013): I've joined the international editorial advisory board for (McMaster University's) Journal of Professional Communication (JPC).

I've been nicknamed the Maven-Connector. Social media (and a social business) are excellent in this regard--information and connections. I also take pride in being an independent thinker and try to avoid "filter bubbles" and "confirmation bias." I wrote my definition of "social public relations" it in March 2013.

Currently I'm doing the majority of my networking and information sourcing via our international, collaborative blog PR Conversations (around since April 2007), Canadian Women in Communications, LinkedIn, Twitter and Google+.

I am also a regular participant in Twitter chats, particularly those with a business focus.

Amongst my many "passions" (or interests) are film, theatre, opera, classical and various modern music. books, fine food and wine. Plus having conversations with people in a multitude of disciplines and from different places from around the globe.

Speaking of which, one of my greatest delights is to travel to places around the world, see the sights/sites, talk to the people and experience their unique culture. But I'm always happy (and ready) to come home to Toronto. A few of its key features highlighted above. (Water skyline view from the ferry dock on Ward's Island; other photos taken at Ontario Place.)
