Welcome to the Fakequity blog. The Fakequity team has been throwing around the idea of a blog for several months. We finally did it. This blog may or may not be our final home, we are doing a trial to see how blogging fits into our professional and private lives, and if we have enough material to make it a quality blog.
We’ll blog about racial equity and its nemesis Fakequity. Some of the posts may veer off towards equity’s siblings and cousins diversity, inclusion, culture, community engagement, accountability, etc. They are all related and we need to understand and think about a lot of different things in order to get towards equity.
Sometimes we capitalize Fakequity, sometimes we won’t– don’t hate us for our inconsistency. Its a made-up word so the rules around its use are a little loose.
Some of the posts will be authored by member’s of the Fakequity team, others may be guest posts, and some will be posted under the cover of Fakequity. We envision some of the posts will push the boundaries and therefore having a name attached to it might not be the best for our professional careers. We aim to talk about what needs to be talked about, but we still need paying jobs and paychecks to buy ourselves tacos and pho.
We’ll aim to post about twice a month. Our Facebook page gets more action, check us out there for more current Fakequity thinking.
Settle in, grab a cup of tea, and get to know Fakequity. You can start by reading the Fakequity chart. We’ll post more blog posts soon.
