2020.1.10 Sunday Reading List

Sunday, January 10, 2021

The beginning of 2021 comin in hot - hope everyone was able to log off and practice some self care over the weekend. Here's what I've been reading this week: 

How to Talk with Your Team About the Violence at the U.S. Capitol (HBR): The worst thing leaders can do right now is stay silent and allow teams to fill in the blanks. This article provides templates and talking points. Also helpful is this from Great Place to Work's blog.

How to Talk to Kids About the Violence at the U.S. Capitol (NPR): Related to above.

These Black Capitol Police Officers Describe Fighting Off "Racist-Ass Terrorists" (Buzzfeed): Heartbreaking.

Prison inmates raise money to pay high school student's tuition (WaPo): A feel-good read for the week.

The Journalist and the PharmaBro (Elle): This story of people making their lives worse by doing things completely in their control is a nice distraction (also remember PharmaBro??)

Menu Prices Will Go Up With a Higher Minimum Wage. But You’ve Been Underpaying for Years (Eatery): Worth noting that the majority of people who would be impacted by a higher minimum wage are women and people of color.

Soul Cycle's Downfall (Vox): Well that was fast.

Influencers' Responsibility in Times of Crisis (Buzzfeed): Silence is violence.

Vogue's Kamala Harris cover photos spark controversy: 'Washed out mess' (The Guardian): I cannot believe we still have to explain this in 2021. An off topic delightful tidbit from this article: 

Harris’s appearance on the Vogue cover is likely to attract the attention of Donald Trump, who complained last month that his model wife, first lady Melania Trump, had not graced a single magazine cover in his four years in the White House, having been snubbed by “elitist snobs” in the fashion industry.
