Unconscious Bias

Recently I had an opportunity to be on panel at work to discuss , share the challenges of colored women and how to overcome. Would like to share some of my thoughts here too.

We all know it happens but how we take it is upto us. We live in 21st century and this technology world and here everything is available to everyone. Lot of opportunities are there and we just need to follow our interest. There are times I want to question people and put some sense into them and there are times I don’t care.

I do make sure that I don’t do that to others and I acknowledge ppl when they do something extra , special or do a good job. You know constructive criticism is helpful for us to grow. For example, when ppl come to work at my home , if they are good I pay them extra. We all love good deals but when someone is sweating to fix , clean my home I pay them what their job is worth and not try to find deal there. People who work for me all the time, do get bonus end of the year. I would get mad if i don’t get bonus so I feel they should receive too. Just be fair in general and everyone around us will be happy.

Unconscious bias is a big thing now a days . And my thought is that companies have lot of diversity events and everyone should be encouraged to participate. That way we meet diverse group of people and we learn to see everyone, everything the way it is. Our minds are so conditioned that we keep doing, thinking things the way we learned ages back that doesn’t work in today’s environment.

For any job , at home or at corporate when we find right person for the right job, everyone wins and makes our life easy and fun. I do encourage everyone to have diverse friends and participate in diverse events. It’s fun and you learn new things while having fun.

After all, there’s only one mind.

PS: By the way, 2 Moringa finally after so many attempts sprouted . That’s the picture.

Dragon Boat Race

Have you ever participated in dragon boat race? Here lot of companies sponsor boats and employees can participate. This is the first time I participated. And it was fun. If you have never tried and your company sponsors it , take advantage or go check it out on race day. You will learn new things , meet new ppl and racing … oh boy you get all pumped up.

Life should be rich with experiences is what I believe. One stays in student mode and life stays fun.

I saw bamboo music instrument 1st time . So sharing picture.

Homegrown Potato

Gardening is such a joy . I had a potato that had eye growing so I planted it in garden. That was I think end of February. Today finally I lost patience and digged around to see if anything is growing or not . And what do I find ? I can’t describe the feeling when I saw potato . I was overjoyed. You see in the first picture? I found 2 and thought may be I should wait for some more time .

Can’t wait to eat them and dig more . I will have potato for breakfast. And potato dreams too. All this for free. Isn’t that awesome ?

Enjoy!

Volunteer/Participate

Do you volunteer, participate in community or @ work events ? It’s ok if you don’t want to. But no time could be just excuse . Companies have so many programs for personal , professional development, volunteer opportunities, fun events. Find the things that interest you and just go for it. Doing some good karma always makes one feel good. You get to meet ppl who share your interests and you learn new things. It’s easy to do at work because you are doing in working hrs and companies give you those volunteer hrs. Learn to take advantage.

I represented Asian group at my work location for diversity fair . I made mango bread and it was nice to see people’s reaction as they taste it . Oh .. yum… this is good. Yes , I made a mess when I made it since butter in microwave spilled everywhere and it was so hard to clean it. But it was all fun. Here’s the good outcome.. I was asked to publish the recipe in our newsletter. Isn’t that awesome ?

I also learned some marketing skill from another lady who was next to me representing some organization. There were ppl who wanted to come learn yoga , Ayurveda . Overall it was fun and made me happy.

Enjoy!
