People need to understand that:
• It's Okay to fail,
• It's Okay to make mistakes,
• It's Okay to admit that you are wrong.
• It's Okay to not have an opinion about something
• It's Okay to say "I don't know"

A thought I am taking from today's @UN_Women@twitter.com panel: we need safe spaces to learn, make mistakes, try out new things, and sometimes fail. It is OK to fail.
I am feeling more that inclusivity is a first step to innovation and community-building.
For the @UNICEF@twitter.com Innovation Fund, strengthening our portfolio of female-led companies is a priority.

A @SustainOSS@twitter.com community member shared thoughts on my @OpenSourceOrg@twitter.com statement of intent: Why do I fail to mention #RMS, and what should I be doing as a @UNICEFinnovate@twitter.com #OpenSource advocate in the @UN@twitter.com system?
Well, there is a lot to unpack. So, let's do it!

If you are a journalist writing about RMS and FSF, *please* interview folks leading in inclusive design in open source (@firstname.lastname@example.org or @CHAOSSproj@twitter.com among many ). To learn about things like https://chaoss.community/metric-inclusive-leadership/ established research tells us, no FSF is not open/inclusive. https://twitter.com/fsf/status/1381640087314792453
