[Before the Dive]
I learned more in 2013 than in any other year of my life. More important than what I learned is who I learned from.
I learned about ethics and morality from my grandfather. I learned patience and risk management from my mother. Balance from my grandmother.
I can’t even begin to list everything learned while on the job. Starting with Laura, everyone has been willing to teach me and patient while I learned. Bear, Tony and RC have all gone out of their way to foster my growth.
I’m incredibly fortunate to be around such generous mentors professionally and personally. 2012 was a rough year. 2013 was tough in the best way possible.
2014 will be my best year to date, I hope it will be for you as well.
Last month, FYI.
Here’s a comparison to the design for a UN campaign for gender equality. I fully support the project and the message, and I thought a comparison would be helpful.
Below are the screenshots from my logged-in, San Francisco based auto complete result.
The juxtaposition is unsurprisingly sad. My “men” search revealed both ignorance (HIV?) and a bias towards internal drives and motivation. The original “Women…” search highlights the external limitations enforced explicitly and implicitly by culture, religion, and in some places law.
