I was just on a call with an all-white team trying to stand up equity advocates in their search committees. A points I thought worth sharing:
I was up after entirely too few hours of sleep and I do not approve. The reason? I woke up thinking about work projects. While I marvel at my brain's ability to solve math problems in my dreams and generate a seemingly endless string of ideas, I'd also love to feel this inspired AND get a full, uninterrupted night of sleep so I can make those ideas happen at a more reasonable hour.
Not saying go away forever or anything, just let me sleep more than 6 hours a night.
give your ideas a chance to live
...and don't be afraid to make crap once in a while
