6 Things I Love…Right Now

Saturday, June 10th, 2017

mismatchedshoesI didn’t get it done this weekend – no #6onSaturday newsletter this morning – sorry. I was buried in planning for #Manbassadors and some other HBA IN meetings this week. Dropped the ball, I did, my peeps! I hope you’ll find it in your heart to forgive me.

But, in looking around the best of the internet this week, there was a LOT of Debbie Downer news…I don’t even want to list it all here.  Instead, I’m going to fill this white space with stuff I love this week, just for you, my fab 13. Ready?

6 Things I Love, Right Now

1. Carmelo Blandino art. And, his instagram page.

2. Symplur’s Healthcare Hashtags Project - as in, loved this a long time, but just registered #HealthCarDev for HBA IN, coming in September to Indy!

3. Jar of Awesome – stared at it yesterday – need to get some more brightly colored post its and fill it up with June tiny wins.

4. Mismatched shoes – It’s a thing in New York, apparently, but I LOVE it. Often take my purple Blowfish flats and mix them with my reds, as illustrated above. And, it fits completely into my goal to become an eccentric, well-dressed crazy cat lady by the time I retire!

5. Payhip – this amazing simple to use site lets you upload PDF files and SELL them. No up front costs, no BS, no mess. They do take 5% on every sale, but so what? It’s instant downloads for the buyer! Since so many people kept asking me about the healthcare certifications tracker, I just stuck it there and now anyone can access it anytime, for the mere price of a cup of coffee.

6. 2nd grader, Lucy – a hand-written thank you note to the safety crew at IMS – for helping Scott Dixon at the Indy 500. I’m still not sure how he walked away from that crash…but Lucy and I were glad the safety team helped Scott.

There.

If you get bogged down in negative press, sometimes as I do – take on my little erin albert dot com challenge here this week, my peeps. Post stuff you love and care about on your social and blogs. Don’t give way to the negative. Next thing we know, the internet will once again be full of cat memes and unicorns – let’s get back to the awesome, shall we?

#Manbassadors

Friday, May 19th, 2017

Fielding lots of questions on the #Manbassadors panel. Here’s my 90 second spot on attending 6/13/17 in Indianapolis. I hope to see you there!

Here’s the link to registration – grab your tickets!

The Manbassador

Thursday, March 2nd, 2017

I’ve been focused on gender parity for years now. But one trend I’m digging of late is: the manbassador.

These are dudes who are in on the gender parity and generalized diversity discussion these days. Several top B schools (Wharton, Harvard, etc.) have started Manbassador chapters so men can get in on the conversations about gender parity and why diversity in boardrooms, C suites and everywhere in Corporate America is so important.

One of the boards I’m serving on right now is also focused on a panel addressing this exact topic this summer.  And, if you’re man enough to join this movement, here are some ideas on how you can get in on the conversation – even if you can’t come to our Indy event in June on Manbassadorship:

1. Stop Talking…on all male panels.  With one exception here – I’ll allow all the cool dudes out there to speak on all-male panels if the topic is how to get more gender parity and diversity in the workplace. There’s your one exception. You’re welcome.

2. Sponsor women at work - If I ever get over this perpetual cold I’ve had all winter and the frog out of my throat, I’m going to have a podcast on this exact topic over at pharmacy podcast.

3. Start your own Male Ally chapter – It takes a strong man to build women. Smart guys have done this – why not you?

4. Check your bias - I actually have bias strongly pro-woman. But at least I know that about myself, since I’ve taken several tests now about it. You should get a baseline on yourself.

And current manbassadors: you’re the real MVP. Thank you for realizing that women need a seat at the table too!
