How are you hacking the diversity & inclusion gap?

defending diversity, heatherlee nguyen

Our differences create opportunities.
Opportunities for a more equitable world.

How are you empowering those people who look and who talk and who live & love differently than you? How can you do better? We all need to confront our biases and check our privilege at the door. I see promise in our future products in services. I believe we can build a more equitable world!

Don’t you?


Peace & love are universal concepts.
Now, more than ever is the time to defend diversity.
We all belong.

heatherlee nguyen

Translate Direct, my service innovation won 1st place at a (virtual) hackathon this weekend! I’m so grateful the judges saw my vision. Thank you Hack the Gap! I’m going after this idea. This is a real problem right now (and it always was) and I care about fixing it.

[To watch the demo video (below) please reach out for the password. Would love your thoughts! heatherlee.ux@gmail.com]

What’s next? I’m looking for people willing to watch my short video demoing the concept. If one of these bullet points fits you, and you’d be willing to email back & forth, get on a call with me, or demo this service, please reach out!

Looking to connect with:
β€’ ESL Teachers (and staff)
β€’ Teachers and administrative staff at language/immersion schools
β€’ Public servants: care givers, community organizers, volunteers regularly communicating with bilingual and/or non-English speaking families
β€’ Anyone specifically working with multilingual communities during this crisis

The survey I circulated during the hackathon is still open. Add your perspective right here: https://lnkd.in/eD98Hum

(Thank you for sharing with your network).

Gratefully,
Heatherlee
