Rachelle Strawther, Director of Leadership & Training at Gonzaga, on the Importance of Her 'Love Posse'
"Really excited to share part to with your shell. Strother director of leadership training and development of gonzaga university on taking her lead in the school leadership studies we staff members refer to ourselves as a love posse. There's a funny story about how that happened. Which i won't go into but it came from a realization that what has made us such a strong team over the years we've had people you know Leave the university or come in and join the team. What has made as a strong team is that we truly care for each other and that means that we are willing to speak our truth when we need to and were willing to support each other when people need that support that is what has made us this this love posse and i think that that speaks volumes. In general about how the power of women can create connection and community women at their best. We've community they think they we've togetherness and we have to be able to leverage that and we have to be able to see that opportunity at our worse we can become competitive at our worst we can see each other as Being in the way or as people like you know sometimes women have this mentality of while. There's there's so few spots. And and if she takes this one than i have my own chance and so there can be a competitive spirit to and we have to be very watchful that but at our best women can. We've this sense of connection. I had seen eight. No at were were caregivers. Were nurturers and you can see got in around. The world look at female leaders and the way that they are taking steps to think about the climate change the environment. I love looking at female leaders and around the world and responses to covid nineteen. I talk about strong. Powerful female leadership like for example for the prime minister of new zealand. How that's incredible leadership. The way that she advocates for culture in their their country that takes care of one another. It's been really beautiful to say and so we can do that. Were the effectively but we have to support each other in that role. We have to see each other as it is and his women who can bring each other up and notice competitors not as competitors and that can be hard to do but it's it's important for us to do that so i see it as something that we can leverage just briefly Just wanted to go just a little deeper in your perception. How do women bring about that connection in that nurturing in the collaboration are there particular actions or attitudes or perspectives. If you look at the world around us and and history civilizations you see examples of women coming together to raise children women collectively bringing up their children together is it's it's all over history and we still see this in indigenous communities. That is something that we can can learn from. And i see that spirit in my own group of friends amongst women who simply by reaching out to each other like during kovic. We've had ongoing chats our text messages with women who throughout the day. We'll say hey. I want to pass this along. My gosh you have to see this mean things that will bring giggles. Make us smile but also give us a moment of support and strength when we need it. It's a powerful the touch points that women have with each other to know. I think this is what someone may need at this moment and In our if. I look at our staff team. You know the love posse is called it or we call it. We do things like read books together yesterday. One of our team members said hey can we explore this new book. Let's can we read the new. Jim crow over christmas break and talk about in january. Those kinds of things that we do together because we know that we are better when we learn and grow together.

'Our hands are tied': Local aid workers exposed in pandemic
"A mask, official reports say. Kim urged authorities to take precautions ahead of Typhoon Bobby's arrival. A storm came just weeks after monsoon floods damaged infrastructure farms and killed at least 20 North Koreans. That's according to media reports and the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent, which works with local partners on the ground there, Nazanin today Cummings lectures on humanitarian studies at Deacon University in Melbourne. She says Pyongyang usually turns to foreign aid groups for disaster relief. And to make that happen, these agencies need to build trust with North Korean officials. International organizations are really dependent on having relationship. Inside North Korea, where they have access to information and access to people and access to places that are affected by his after. But because of the covert 19 pandemic, many foreign aid workers are now locked out of the country today coming says You can't do zoom calls from abroad with North Korean officials to coordinate disaster relief. She says Pyongyang's containment measures like closing down its borders and limiting domestic travel were extreme but perhaps necessary. So I think the way North Korea has responded to the pandemic shows that the authorities understand and are very cognizant of how weak the health system is and how how devastating Corbett could be North Korea Earlier this month, Kim Jeong Eun made a rare admission. His economic reforms have failed. He largely blamed the pandemic, international sanctions and natural disasters Today. Cummings agrees that Cove it and US and United Nations restrictions have impacted foreign aid. But she pushes back on the notion that disasters in the North are natural. They don't become disasters and hold a interact with human decision making the inability to be prepared for disasters, the inability to mitigate risk for the disasters and the inability for people to have a system that supports them to be able to make it through hazards without casualty. She adds, the impact of typhoons and floods could be lower if North Korea made caring for its people a priority for the world. I'm Jason Strother and soul.

"Day. The Lancaster bombers the six seventeen air squadron squadrons flew in orbits eight miles long and two miles wide slowly. Moving Southeast at eight knots to Mimic and ocean convoy and according to an account given given to the Royal Air Force in May two thousand nineteen by wing commander John Bell M B E. Who is part of this mission quote? While they were flying there were two aircrew in the rear of each Lancaster. CASTER and I was one of them. We were handed bundles of Aluminum Strip which we dropped at approximately three second intervals through the flare shoot. The strips varied in size and went from small to large as we approached the French coast and large to small when we turned back to the English coast a green light indicated when it was time to throw it. The efforts of the six hundred seventeenth air squadron were part of what was called Operation Taxable which played out along the French coast near Cop Donte Fair a second operation in which made use of window known as Operation Glimmer made it look as though there was an allied force crossing a narrow point of the English Channel for glimmer. That two hundred eighteen team squadron was tasked with dropping the chaff and the deception also included a faint. That made it appear that a massive groundforce was moving toward pas-de-calais to to provide additional support for this ruse dummy parachutists were dropped southwest of and King in a segment of the plan called operation. Titanic all of these efforts combined worked as the allies hoped. The Germans could not get a correct analysis of enemy troop movements and even into the following month. There was still confusion about whether there was a large groundforce near the city of Calais. Also in June of nineteen forty. Four Salmon Joan Curran were invited to the University of California at Berkeley to work on the Manhattan Hatton project which they accepted. It was during this time that the pair worked on the development of a simulation counter to measure the ionization of radiation. While Samuel current is given credit for this invention which is still used today he consistently noted his wife's work on the project and during their time in California the Currents Had Their First Child oiled and their daughter was born with an intellectual or cognitive disability. The exact nature of her disability is unclear from the readily available information but after the war came to a close the curtains moved back to the UK. Where Sam had been offered a position at Glasgow University and they had three more children after they returned to Europe? All of which were sons Though her work with the war effort was done. Joan was hardly idle from this point in nineteen fifty four. She and Sam with four other couples with the goal of setting up an organization. Jose Shen to assist parents of children with learning disabilities. After the first meeting they printed a notice in the paper and biting people to an open meeting and more than three hundred people attended. This was the beginning of the Scottish Association of Parents of Handicapped Children which is an organization that still exists although its name has evolved hoped to be enabled Scotland which is a support and advocacy group. Joan Curran continued to work in support of people with disabilities throughout her lifetime. Her close ties is to academia led her to advocate on behalf of students with disabilities and work with the Council for Access for the disabled. Both Sam and Joan were really outspoken. Proponents the idea that education was something that should be available to everyone and this work that she did was one way in which she carried out that mission. She also served on Greater Glasgow L. Health Board and was part of the Scottish Special Housing Association. At the end of the nineteen fifties. Sam became principal of the Royal College of Science and Technology which gained its Royal Charter and became the University of Strathclyde under his leadership. During this time Joan founded and served as president of the Strathclyde Women's group she also also established the Lady Current Endowment Fund for overseas students in nineteen eighty seven at the age of seventy one. Joan was finally granted an honorary doctorate the University of Strathclyde. So finally she got her physics. Degree Samuel Curran died on February Fifteenth Nineteen Ninety eight a plaque was installed in his honor in Baruni Hall a Victorian Gothic Church at Strathclyde Joan unveiled the plaque and ceremony. Although she herself was terminally ill at the time at the event she he was told that a walled garden at the Ross priory also part of Strathclyde was to be named after her with the Joan Curran Summer House to be built. Their Joan Curran died less less than a year after her husband on February tenth nineteen ninety nine and she never had any of her work published by her contributions to the war effort science and her community were recounted over and over and habitue aries her obituary in the Scotland Herald opened with the paragraph quote. It is difficult to separate the lives of Joan and Sam Curran. And although they were a very different temperaments they made a superb team and partnership and were devoted to each other nevertheless it is very important and Sam always emphasized sized this to know that she was a considerable scientist in her own right and in the dark days of the Second World War. She as did Sam played an important part in the survival. All of this country politician Tim. Daniel wrote an account of his first meeting with Reginald Jones That person that had spearheaded the window project and in that conversation Sation Jones told him quote. In my opinion Joan Curran made an even greater contribution to victory in nineteen forty-five than Sam. She's pretty incredible. It it is and it's one of those things I'm glad there have been some efforts in both Wales and Scotland last probably five to eight years of people who are pointing out like this is a person that we should be recognizing more than we do and I love that they're doing that makes me happy. I have so much listener. Mail L. O.. Well we've just come off of the holidays and we are lucky enough to often get some really really lovely Cards from various S. listeners.

There could have been some and I picked up these moon photo postcards to send you glad I didn't get around to sending them right away because I then saw the building orbiter postcard on a more recent visit to the museum and I could not resist getting it as well. Thank you for all the wonderful work you do on the podcast. I'm always rooting for more episodes. In the history of science piece exploration and women in stem. Yes so it's this cool kind of snap snap together orbiter model that you can make and it comes in a postcard in. It's really cool and I love it. I also will echo her thing. If if you ever get to go see any of these marvelous orbiters please do it If you go to Kennedy and you see the Atlantis intas on display. That is one of the most beautiful and moving museum installations. I think I have ever seen in my entire life It is so good. I stood there and cried for forty five minutes But I also just recommend that you go and and recognize the amazing things the thing I always love about space and I tried to explain this to people. Aw like when I look at things like the James Webb space telescope or any of the space shuttle's Cetera is that to me. What makes them beautiful is that they are the best of us? Those are a lot of different people from different backgrounds. Who have all worked really really hard and come together to make something that transcends our life on earth that is why I'm such a space store? If you like to write to us you can do so at history.

"Jones was against withholding the use of window although he also wanted to make sure that when they did deploy it it was at a time when it would be the most effective and impactful in October nineteen forty two British intelligence received information that indicated that the Germans knew what about this concept having fired on a dust cloud of aluminum particles that was thrown out of an allied craft and the Rheinland Jones made the case to command that they should absolutely absolutely US window immediately before German forces might have a chance to figure out a way around it perhaps even introduced their own version of it but his efforts were met with dismissal. This discussion did however lead to a more detailed analysis of window and how it would impact both the Germans and the British this. Let's more specifications Asians around the exact amounts of window material that should be used for various results and also the calculations of its value in terms of potential casualty reduction and as people were calculating these things how much to us and what it was what Israel value was in terms of war effort. They came up with some different numbers. Derrick Jackson in who was that man who had halted the initial use of window worked on this analysis as well and he came up with the weight of eighty four tons of window as the amount needed to make Germany's radar useless. Jackson also believed to reciprocate German forces could render allied radar ineffective with just one ton of a similar material. RV Jones made his own calculation. Remember he had really Birth this whole idea and he landed at twelve tonnes. The amount needed to wipe out the effectiveness of Germany's radar and then a whole other collie came up with the number of forty eight tons so they were all over the map in what they thought. It was going to require to be effective after a meeting on April April second nineteen forty-three in which everyone argued the case for or against window based on their own calculations it was decided that it was worthwhile and that a request Westwood be sent to the Prime Minister to use it as soon as possible. The case had to once again be made to Winston Churchill with some members of the British military still in opposition to Oh using window but eventually it was determined that the potential to save lives was worth the perceived risk of disruption to British and allied radar readings at the conclusion conclusion of the meeting. According to Jones Churchill said very well let us open the window. RV Jones knowing that if the plan for window failed he would take all the heat. Beat sent his men out to all of the bomber stations where this would be deployed to give talks about Germany's night defense systems and clearly explain how the packets of aluminum strips were to be deployed and at what rate as things were finally moving to actual use of the research that Joan had done. There are also concerns that Germany was essentially essentially in the exact same position with a similar radar disruptive technology that they were fearful about putting into use after the war. RV Jones discovered that Germans. Germans had definitely known about window and we're perplexed as to why it wasn't in use. They also tried a similar tech of their own. But the trials went so poorly that Hermann Goering during had all the reports related to these tests destroyed Operation Gomorrah on July twenty fourth nineteen forty. Three was the first time that window the culmination Shen of current experimentation was used in a bombing raid the first night of attacks on Hamburg Germany were considered a success British forces since seven hundred ninety ninety-one aircraft out and they lost only twelve. That's a one point. Five percent loss rate similar rates that it happened without the use of window had a six point. One percent loss loss rate Jones. Estimated that seventy to eighty aircraft were saved thanks to their parcels of aluminum strips over the course of several raids the next night window it was used again on our rate and Essen this time the disruption was so significant that the Germans were not only unable to track enemy bombers but they also weren't able to track their own planes plains. The loss rate for the British bombers was slightly higher than the previous night at three point three percent. But this was still a substantial improvement over previous missions without window there were additional raids on Hamburg in the days that followed both by British bomber command and by the US the average loss rate for British forces was two point. Eight percent averaged out over the series of bombings. While we're talking about the success of these rates we also have to acknowledge. The heavy civilian casualties. That took place in these. As a tax the ground fires created by the bombing on Hamburg. During the second raid there created a firestorm. The intensity of the fires created their own wind is hot air. Rose and cold air was pulled down very rapidly that spread the flames destroying huge swath of the city and suffocating people additionally a tornado like effect pulled people into the blaze even as they tried to flee. RV Jones account indicates that allied forces didn't realize how how devastating these bombings were until after the fact when casualty estimates were placed between forty and fifty thousand people. Yeah you will see sometimes even lower numbers and sometimes even higher numbers there I will tell you this. This is a one time that research for this show has ever resulted than me having nightmares. So if you want to go study this firestorm please know that the images you will see are very disturbing. The stories of survivors are very upsetting. but it's also really important that we talk about it so Jones also acknowledged that this was something that seemed very counter to what they had been in sort of preaching from the allied side. He later wrote quote. We had started the war morally opposed to the bombing of civilian populations and now we were pursuing it on a horrifying roofing scale. How did this come about? And then he goes on to discuss how that had been something of a gradual process as the realizations came that bomber command could not always guarantee precision hits targets but also that bomber command was really the only thing that was hurting Germany on the scale that was needed to end the war. Additionally there was a strategy in play demoralized the German population by striking a city filled with industrial workers Jones summarized all of this by writing unquote. It was on the grounds of probable effectiveness and not of morality that the battle was fought at one point. There was even a brief accusation that the allies had used chemical warfare at Hamburg. Although that was untrue was this allegation had been some of the aluminum strips that the Germans had recovered after a cow had eaten them at died. Did the strips had been coated in black paint to make them invisible at night and that paint did contain a small amount of arsenic but not enough to substantiate a claim of chemical warfare. Bear as another aside because suspect people will ask couldn't account just die from eating those strips Having grown up the child of farmers Cows eat metal all the time. Guess often they're fed stuff. That's just kind of sloppy and filled with all kinds of craziness. Also they will sometimes just find things in fields. Some farmers actually put magnets and their cows stomachs to kind of keep those things isolated and not pass through their digestive tract and cause mortality But yeah it's not uncommon for cows to eat metal Just the same. Despite those chemical warfare claims being abandoned the attack on Hamburg and Essen had significantly diminished both oth morale and production of war material over the course of eight days the British and US bombing raids destroyed half of Hamburg while it initially was considered by some to being active retribution of the Nazi bombings of London and Coventry the difference in the level of destruction at Hamburg made the ethics of war. Something that people inside the military considered -sidered in a new way even as newspapers were touting operation good more as a huge win and even today these raids and the balance of moral versus strategic chick decision making continued to be discussed. We also talked about that a lot in our episode on Sadako Sasaki and her thousand cranes and the bombings of of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. And all that so it came up a lot all through the war. The system that Jones had conceived and that Joan Curran had tested had worked incredibly well keeping German women forces confused as their radar failed to give them information that they needed to defend against these bombing raids and as the allied forces prepared for D Day Curran's radar chaffetz system system was used to obscure the details of the planned landings at Normandy. It was important to not only hide. The fact that Normandy was their target but also to misdirect the attentions inches of the German forces to another location. If possible the hope was that the allies could convince the Germans that the planned landing was east of the Seine River so that they would keep heap most of their troops and artillery there and then the allied forces would destroy the bridges that would have enabled them to move out of that areas. They kind of wanted to get them in one place and trapped from there and then to do all this the allies needed illusion. They wanted to convince the Germans that have force was coming in from the sea and they came up with a plan to use window to do you so Robert Cock burn who had overseen. The testing that Joan Curran had done to develop window was the person who developed this plan. And we're GONNA talk about how that plan was executed. You did with some very dire results but we're going to take a quick sponsor break before we get into that. Hey I'm andy eighty.

"Of iheartradio's. How stuff works? Hello and welcome to the PODCAST. I'm holly FRY and I'm Tracy Wilson and today we're talking about a woman who is not a household name but In my opinion should probably should be there. Some other people who thinks probably should be as well She was a Welsh scientist. Who developed a system of thwarting radar? It was invaluable to the allied forces during World War Two and what we know of her work is unfortunately entirely piece together from accounts by her male colleagues who fortunately recognize the importance of her contributions so today we are talking about Joan. struthers current Jones struthers was born February twenty six nineteen sixteen in in Swansea Wales. Joan attended the Swansea Girls High School. She won a scholarship to Newnham College. The University of Cambridge and she enrolled there in nineteen thirty eighty four. She studied physics of note. Here is the fact that Joan. Despite doing. All of the required coursework Cambridge did not get a physics degree That was because it was policy not to issue them to women so when she finished her undergraduate coursework in nineteen thirty eight but again not a degree she started her doctorate work and that was actually funded by government. Grant and that work was carried. Out at Cambridge's cavendish laboratory and it was there that she met a man named Samuel Curren. Who she he was assigned as a lab partner? This whole deal where you could do. The whole of the coursework and not be awarded a degree because your woman that was not unique to Cambridge. We've talked about that happening in other other schools to yeah absolutely that was pretty much director across academia Yeah the Nineteen Thirties. Yeah so in one thousand nine hundred forty structure and Karen were removed moved from their physics work at the cavendish lab to Exeter and there they were both assigned to research. That was to help the war effort. They turned their problem solving skill to the development of proximity Timothy Fuses. These are explosive device. Triggers that sense when their targets are within a specified range so close enough to cause damage and then detonate the proximity refuses that Jones struthers and Samuel current developed targeted rockets and aircraft and they developed a very close relationship over the course of the years being lab partners in in November nineteen forty Joanne. Samuel married and not long after the currents had said their vows. They were reassigned. This time they were sent to the telecommunications research just stablishment this was again part of the war effort and Sam worked on centimeter radar and Joan worked in countermeasures. The goal for Jones work was to figure out a way. Okay to fool enemy radar and the team on this project was led by Robert Cock burn under the leadership of Reginald. Victor Jones is a British physicist. Who had become an expert Bert in military intelligence? Just as a quick refresher on radar that stands for radio detection and ranging basically radar works by sending out a radio signal in in one direction it looks for a bounce or an echo of that signal which would indicate that there objects in the path of the signal then using the information gathered that way including at the time it takes for the echo to return to the point of transmission radar can indicate the size shape and distance of objects so the team commissioned by Jones has adds a somehow thwart that process and so one of the experiments that Joan Kerlin began was using thin metal reflectors to disrupt the echo of radar. Large groups of small metal strips could even mimic a large object like in aircraft. When in reality there was nothing substantial? They're even larger groups of strips could create large amorphous. BLOBS were big enough to hide an aircraft inside. Even if an enemy knew that a plane was somewhere inside such a blob bob figuring out where would be a complete guests if that blob was big enough and Jones is credited with coming up with this idea and then passing it off to the research group to figure out the particulars and do testing and Joan. Curran really did a lot of that research. Jones later described the concept in this way years later in his book which is titled The the Secret War quote the phenomenon on which they depended was that of resonance if a reflector is made of a simple wire or strip of metal of length equal to half the wavelength used by the radar station it resonates to the incoming radio waves and re radiates them to such effect that it is roughly equivalent to a whole sheet of metal whose dimensions dimensions are square. and which has sides equal in links to half a wavelength. Thus a few hundred such strips or wires would reflect as much energy as a whole all Lancaster bomber fewer collar twenty-fifth episode on the twenty-third headquarters special troops. That are known as the ghost army. Creative deception was was a valuable tool in the allied forces. World War Two plans but at the point when Kerlin and team led by Jones. We're working on their radar. DISRUPTER technology the US. US Wasn't even involved in World War Two yet. Current and her colleagues were leading the effort and trickery as military strategy figuring out ways that blobs of reflective material could hint at a photo massive attack force or simply obscure one or two aircraft and so the practical idea of how this would work is is that elite aircraft would drop bundles of strips to create this radar confusion and then dropping additional bundles at regular intervals. Would create complete mayhem for enemy enemy forces that were trying to get a read on the situation. This technology was given the codename window by British intelligence though the US would eventually just kind of use the more casual term. I'm of radar chaff. Even after the December seventh nineteen forty one bombing of Pearl Harbor which brought to the United States into the war. Currents work was still in the experimental stage. She was testing the best possible materials. The best possible shapes and sizes for these strips there's decisions weren't made until nineteen forty two and the technology wasn't put into use until nineteen forty three. She performed test. I at Swan on the Isle of Pure Beck and then later at Malvern Worcestershire. Everything from pieces of the middle as big as slips of paper which were considered as a possible propaganda delivery system as well as being part of this radar disruption to very tiny wires were tested it before the research led to the decision that aluminum cut into one point. Five by twenty five centimeters strips was the best that is a little bit more than half an inch by a a little less than ten inches according to RV Jones the intention at actually bench. I use the system Joan. Kerr had tested as early as May of nineteen forty two he wrote with the chiefs of Staff. Approval the window packets where I believe actually loaded into bombers for a raid in May nineteen forty two. And then we're off loaded again because there was a last minute prohibition of their use and the reason for that last minute change according to Jones. Was that fighter commands airborne radar officer. Derrick Jackson had only heard about the existence of window right before the mission and Jackson was understandably concerned that those reflectors might also cause confusion to the radar tech's in the British forces and so he was not comfortable using a brand new technology.

"Not only did you have some fun, but you met some people and come to be friends and you can leave with, you know, more connections that are real and deep and genuine at the end of the day. But that was something that was really important to us because we've all. Been the conferences before and, and a lot of times you know, you, you see people in passing, you sit at the table with them, but you don't really get to know them. Y'all listen to the same stuff. You might go out to lunch or dinner once or twice, but there's not really the opportunity to kind of grow in that relationship. And so that's what we wanted to try and foster. And that's why it's kind of a smaller event. It's smaller by design. Yeah, I was going to mention like it is. It's a pretty small. I wanna say it's maybe like thirty thirty five people, something like that. Yeah, yeah, that's that's about. That's about the cat this year. We may expand it in future years, but I think at this point that's about the size that we wanna try and shoot forward. So that again, you can. You can meet everybody. You can know everybody at the end of the weekend and it's not, you know, one of those things where I know I've talked to you, but I can't remember your name kind of thing. So no, I think I think that's great. I mean, I've certainly seen similar types of events like that where they try to cap the attendees at a certain number to keep this of intimates feel, you know. So I think that's, that's a great thing. And certainly, I think as you all kind of get more word out about it, get more sponsors, et cetera you can think about if you want to increase that or if you still want to keep it this kind of exclusive sort of thing. I mean, I think Ted only has what fifteen hundred attendees or something like that every year and people know about that all over the world. So I don't feel like you have to nothing. I'm necessarily giving advice but like you know, no feel like you have to grow it out bigger. If it's working at the size that you're doing it at, like keep it going at that size, maybe look at how you can replicate that same sort of capsule experience in other locations. That's something that's something that we are we're investigating for for the future is more than likely keeping it about the same size, but maybe having more than one a year or a couple of different locations around the country. Now you grew up here in Atlanta, went to school in Atlanta. I've been here in Atlanta since ninety nine ish ninety nine or so what is the design community like for you here? That's an interesting question so, and it's partially because I've kind of bounced between design communities. So I would have said, if you would ask me a few years back when I was doing industrial design would probably give me a different answer. But I think that this point the design community in Atlanta is flourishing mess. Specially in you x. and graphic design, everybody seems to be looking for US designers in all the major companies around the city. You know, obviously Georgia. Cranking out designers, scab has cranking out designers, I think even door to state has some some design programs there. So we've got a lot of kids coming out of school with design backgrounds, and we've got a lot of startups and technology companies that have been founded on the west coast or elsewhere in the country that are opening up offices here in Atlanta, partially because of of kind of tech in the technology hub here in the awesome engineers they have here, but also.

"And she was like, you know, I love what you guys are doing if we can help, if in any way that's we'd be glad to. So, yeah, it's, it's been fantastic, the response and what people are saying about it. Wow, that's that's pretty cool. So they invited you just to kind of see how it all goes and everything. Yeah, exactly. Just kinda see how they run their show and they offer to help us in the future with referrals for speakers and and that type of thing as well. Now, obviously, their conferences is is much more grand than than ours is at this point. I think they are in their tenth or so year, and they had maybe one hundred fifty or more people at the conference last week and speakers from around the world, which were fantastic, but any help and recognition as as always appreciated. Well, I think honestly, it's great that they even have done that. And I don't say that to say for them specifically, but was time I would say when I was first starting revision path about five years ago, and I think it's still kind of an issue, but I think the perception of the issue has gotten better, but there was a time when you know these conferences were put out there, speaker panels. Or whatever someone would mention maybe on Twitter like, hey, where are the black people Brown people? And the response would be so hateful and so vile. Oftentimes coming from the conference organizers themselves about like how dare you bring that up. That's sort of thing. And I mean, I've even gotten, I mean, dozens of inquiries over the years from events that are like we're trying to diversify our speaker roster, who can we reach out to, but oftentimes they're looking at diversity as kind of a last minute add on. So after they've already exhausted most of their budget or the rest of the programs planned out now, it's like, oh, we should probably sprinkle in some melanin it here. So people don't get mad. And I think at one point I think at one point there was a time when some conferences were bringing on people colored just so they could avoid that kind of bad PR. Another one conference in particular out of was out of Texas. I want. Say it was the circles conference where the guy that ran that just went like, but Listrik on Twitter about it. So the fact that a conference of that stature would reach out just to say, hey, we see that you're a smaller event doing the sort of thing, and we wanna help out and that sort of way. I think that is huge. That's amazing that they would even offer their resources like that. 'cause oftentimes they expect the reciprocal thing. They want you as the small entity to help them out. You know what I mean? Yeah. I mean, it was really awesome. Jesse, the lady the organizer that contacted us, you know, we had a chance to talk to her while we were there and she, you know, she was really, really genuine and really, really awesome in terms of her willingness to support what we're doing. It definitely didn't seem like she was like putting on or being in disingenuous about it because the some of the speakers that they had at that conference were talking specifically about diversity and inclusion on a number of levels. So it's obviously something that you know they feel like is important and, and you know, like, like I said, it's just great to see. Yeah. Let's bring it back to Hugh. What can people expect from the Hugh design summit this year? So we have a, it's Thursday through Sunday, and we've got a great lineup of speakers. You may be familiar and many of your audience may be familiar with with Gail Anderson. She was one of our keynote speakers this year, and we feel incredibly blessed to have her agreed to come and speak to our attendees. We've got a marketing and design specialist. We've got a couple of weeks researchers 's coming to talk as well. We've got no some, some catered meals, a private chef and just some opportunities to to sit down and converse and just get to know each other. So that at the end of the conference, you can say that not only did you learn some things?.

"There was also the fact that we talked about earlier where clients, oftentimes, at least in the past, have balks at the idea of doing research, and we started, we started to have more and more of that. And that really, really irks me when my former co workers, you know, left this design firm that we were at and went to this firm that I'm currently at, and she was like, hey, we do real research and we, we actually talked to the people and get their feedback before we start designing things. And I was like, you are speaking my language. So, yeah, I mean, the kind of the combination of those those two things being able to actually talk to users and understand, you know where they're coming from an empathize with them about the troubles that they're having the things that they like to be able to do with a particular product or service, and and then you know, translating that into something that will make their lives easier is really what makes going to work every day, you know. Fantastic. Nice. All right. So let's switch gears here for a minute. What are you most excited about at the moment? So I am most excited about an upcoming design summit that myself in a few of my friends as part of the Hugh collective are putting on this week, it's called Hugh design summit. It's a small uncon- France for designers of color. We're having it here in Atlanta, and that's really exciting for us. How did you all I get the idea to do something like that. I've thought about that a lot. Interestingly enough, several of us that are in the collective are actually Georgia Tech grads. So I'm not sure whether it's a function of going to a PWI or what, but a few years after all of us graduated, we're just kind of thinking about ways to build stronger connections between designers of color. And one of the members of our group Alphonso created a group me group called box. Design started inviting folks that he knew that were designers and that kind of online group continued to grow and continues to grow at this point. And you know that was nice and it was it was great, but we thought, you know, that's it's not quite the same having relationships online as it is, you know, in person. So you know, we kind of thought, what could we do something in person that wouldn't conflict with? You know, the many other groups do conferences or do you know, meet up so that type of thing. And so this is what we decided on in. We had our inaugural our inaugural summit last year and it was span tastic, and our next one is coming up from last year. I think just in the Walker who's been on the show, she was one of the keynote speakers. Right? She was. She was and she was fantastic. We had a really great really great time. She led us through an awesome talk and has actually served as kind of an ongoing adviser for us since since last year. And it's been fantastic. Nice. What have you all learned since put. On this event. Oh, goodness. So putting on event like this takes a lot more than you originally expected to all the various details in logistics. I'm not sure that we really fully understood what would always involved with it when we first started. But like I said, it was a, it was a learning experience. And I think this year is going to be even better than last year and really, it's been great to see the response that we've gotten both from the folks who attended last year as well as you know, folks that we talked to about it since then, you know, we've had lots and lots of support from both kind of the designers of color as well as you know, some who aren't. And fact we had myself in another one of the members of Hugh James went out to the layers conference in San Jose just last week at the invite of one of the conference. Organizers just as a as a way to support us in what we were trying to do..

"Company and he was about to graduate and move to Japan. And he said, you know, I can't service my clients anymore. Do you want them? And I said, exactly, said, will sure I'll, I'll take them. Yes. And so I started a freelance web design company and that's kind of where, I guess some of the background for my transition into you ex came from, I knew how to code. I knew how to design for the web. And so the only thing that was really different from product design was the fact that oftentimes the products are digital instead of. Physical. So aside from that, the design process is nearly identical. You like to start out with research to understand the problem, understand if you should be designing this thing or not. And once you decide that you are are you should then you kinda deci, then you kinda research, you know will what are the issues that are that your potential customers are having and design solution for them? You do some manner of concept development. You do some manner of prototyping and ideally test those prototypes with the with the users. And as you get closer to refining that product or that concept, then you you shifted over to to engineering in the product development world or our development in the in the software digital product world. And then once that's done, you do some some QA testing, right? And and then you you get rid. To to release it the market. So the key differences, as you know, the, the embodiment of the product and the development time line product development is typically much longer in the development time line than than digital products are, but that was relatively relatively seamless. Interesting. I think now they just call the whole process designed thinking sort of like being able to apply those design processes across a number of things. But I think it's interesting that the the process itself is not that different. Sometimes we'll tell people that to me like I have more of like math and science background, like my mom's a biologist, my dad's an engineer and I majored in math. So when I was going into design, I came into mostly from analytical standpoint like I saw it as an equation to solve. And so it does feel like to me that the design process has some some correlation analogy. Like the scientific method, at least as how it relates to research, you know you're doing the research or gathering data, you're testing hypothesis, etcetera, etcetera. It's very similar to interviewing users and getting that information. So you can sort of present that back to the client so they can see whether or not this is a direction that they need to go on. Absolutely. I mean, they're definitely people who practice specifically hypothesis based design right where they as opposed to just going out and looking for input from end users or stakeholders as a way to define the problem. And you know what they should start to design around. Basically, they make a hypothesis and say, this is what we think is the issue. This is what we think could be the solution and they build something, and then they test against that and try and prove themselves right or wrong as the case may be. When did you sort of have this this moment where you knew that this was what you wanted to do for a living? I mean, star. Putting out wanting to do computer science and then industrial engineering. And now kind of transitioning into you. US winded is sort of click for you that this was this is what you wanna do. There's a point in time in my career as a industrial designer that a lot of the new projects that we were doing had digital interfaces as a as a component. So there was that part..

"I worked there for shrew well, actually I started they're working. They're like, interning there my senior year, and so I worked there for a total of about seven years. Got a bunch of utility patents different from design patents, a couple of design patents while I was there. But yeah, we got to work on a whole bunch of different stuff and consultancy life is fun and interesting in that regard. And that you get to learn a lot about a lot of different industries and. Every day is different sneaking of patents. We actually have a question here. This is from Sella Lewis who she's been a guest on the show. She's also a writer for the site and a patron. She wanted to know when you were in industrial design, did you have any experience going through the design patent process? It kind of sounds like you did. Can you offer any advice for those interested in industrial design and design pens, advice? Yes. So I guess some procedural things one as you're doing your design work, dated. Sign it and date it one for documentation for your portfolio and that type of thing and two. If you think at some point what you've created, maybe patentable, it's really important to make sure that you have that documentation because that's what the attorneys are going to ask for. Right? Because they have to figure out one is their prior art as there have other people who've designed things that are similar, you know, come up with the same idea before you did too. If you're not working by yourself, you're working as part of a team. They've gotta figure out who's actually responsible for creating this intellectual property. I'm actually in the middle of going through that on a project that I worked on. Goodness, maybe six years ago now where the company filed for this patent and they're going to be awarded it. And there was some misunderstanding about who was responsible for designing it. So I had to go back and. Go back through my archives and like find the drawings that I made and myself and one of my other former colleagues were had to do the same thing had to go back through his drawings and find the drawings that we made and basically present the case that, yes, indeed, some of my ideas and some of his ideas and some of, you know, another former co workers ideas kind of merge together into the final embodiment of the product that this company manufactured and falling patent on. So keep good records is, is the main thing as far as like what you do after that point, typically, the attorneys will handle most of the heavy lifting though though, take your drawings, you're renderings, whatever the documentation that you have and they will either submit it as is or they will use it to as a guideline for the patent drawings that they were actually submit with the application. So those patent drawings are done in a particular manner. Particular format. So they probably won't use exactly what you created, but it'll be, like I said, it'll be a guideline to for what they create for that patent application, and then they file it and then you wait, you wait a couple of years usually. And eventually if it's granted than you'll get a, you'll get a letter in the mail saying, congratulations, that's pretty neat. But again, the patent office isn't particularly quick especially nowadays, so don't hold your breath on that. Yes. Sounds like it's a lengthy process. It is. How long did it take for your pets? Some are faster than others. I say average. It was two or three years. Okay, so not too long, but people should know it's not a quick submission kind of process where you're going to hear something right away. No, not typically. Okay. I guess they kind of have to research and find out if there's something similar. Out there is that kind of what takes a long time, you know. I think it's partially that and it's partially just the sheer number of submissions that they get initiatives. There's just a lot to work through. There's a pretty big backlog as I understand it. But yes, there's certainly a bit of document review to make sure that you know somebody else didn't already have a file a patent have got awarded a patent for the same, the same type of thing..

"I started taking classes and they are interesting, but they were not fulfilling and you know, walking back and forth across campus. I stumbled through the college of architecture and saw some of the work that the industrial design program was pinning up in like, this is what I've been looking for. It seemed really cool when so I changed my major when I started at Morehouse. I think we were probably like in college right around the same time. You weren't college in two thousand something like that. Yeah. Yeah. I started in ninety nine so it was the same way. I got some more house. I started computer science. It wasn't for me and I ended up having switched my major. No Morale's didn't have a design program. And I remember trying to actually one point at one point I was trying to transfer out because I was like, oh, well, maybe my scholarship work somewhere else. It does, but I thought it did. You know, just didn't know. But yeah, I didn't know that Georgia Tech had designed programs back then that's kind of good to know about. Yeah, it was. It had been around for a little while. Certainly it's much much larger now than than it was. Then they've had some great advances in in that program and this grown quite a bit. But yeah, it was. It was. It was great when I was there. I think we had seventy or eighty kids in my graduating class on the in the design program, which is pretty good. At that point. We were. I guess the the smaller as compared to architecture, but I think, yeah, I think nowadays they're almost equal if not a little bit larger on the design side architecture, which is nice to see the growth. Yeah, we had some great professors and great classes, a nice variety of classes. And one of the key benefits that I found when go into like ideas, say conferences and that type of thing with other design schools was the fact that we had all those engineering departments at our school allowed us to have more of a technical background and our design work, which was invaluable because meant that we were designing things that could actually be manufactured like didn't just look nice just, you know, awesome forms. But also we had some background in, you know what? The electrical engineering needs to go into it or what mechanical engineering. These go into this thing that we're designing. So when I got out into the into the professional world, I had some some background at that helped me quite a bit. So what were some of those classes? You said kind of earlier, you learned a little bit about cognitive psychology. Now. You're saying also can have tech background, like what all sort of classes where you taking? Well, I mean, the, you know, you had the the typical studio classes and that type of thing. But then there were also so I took a human computer interface class that was kinda cross listed with the CS department. So that was quite helpful. There were a handful of classes that, like I said, we're kind of a, I don't know, like a like a cross listed class with like a mechanical engineering class or an electrical engineering class. So you had folks who are WBZ or Emmy's in the class with you. And you did group projects where there were designed students and engineering students that were grouped together again to make sure that you could share some of the knowledge that you all had based on your your major and make sure that you were designing things that were robust in in manufacturer will cause there's nothing worse than designing something that looks awesome in then can't. He made it can't be made for a price that people would be willing to pay. Yeah, that's for those students that go to artists the toot. No, I'm kidding. I am so kidding. I'm not kidding. No, I'm kidding. No, that's that's good. So once you graduated from Georgia Tech, what was your early career like you're working as an industrial designer? Yes. So I got a job right out of school at a product development firm in Lawrenceville just north of Atlanta, and they designed and developed all range of things consumer products and medical devices, and some commercial Whitman, that type of thing. And that was awesome..

"Component to won't even call it US. It's more so just user research before we started doing design work. So we will do user testing and we would do interviews and talk to people, and it always amazed me how nearly every single client pushed back on that at the beginning. I think one because it wasn't additional cost. Like, for example, if they need a website that why don't we have to talk to people like because your website is not just for you, it's for your customers or you're trying to raise money, you're you're trying to do something to spur other people into. Action. I just found the kind of funny that that would be the one thing that people would would try to push back on for some reason. Absolutely. It's really funny how frequently that happened and not until not until you come back with some groundbreaking revelation or quotes from their customers that completely contradicts the line of thinking that they have that they see the value. Right. A lot of times, you know, like, like you said, a lot of times people push back, they can't. They can't understand the value because it's it's hard to place an ROI on on that type of research unless and until you have something that says, I actually would not buy this thing the way you've designed it. The way you're proposing to to release it, then you have, you know multiple be saying that that people are like, oh, well, yeah, maybe that was valuable. Then sort of, like you said, at least now, I think the market is changing where hopefully clients are more aware that this is something that they need to have. They need to get that outside perspective in order to make sure that the end product is better for for everyone. Absolutely. I mean, a lot of times you have folks in and companies, especially some of the larger companies around the world where they've been working on this, this product, this product line for multiple years, and they're just too close to it. And having that outside perspective can really be very valuable for your product developments process. Oh, my God. I worked with one nonprofit here in Atlanta. They shall remain. They miss. But I, I worked with one nonprofit and I mean, they were, you know, they're very close to the work. And what the work was about. And it was so hard to get them to look outside of that for other perspectives. But yet they were always looking to those outside perspectives because they had money and it's like we need people to donate, but we don't necessarily want to take their advice. They don't know. They don't know what we're going through here. I'm like, well, why don't we tell them or show them like show stories of, you know, say too much more. I'm going to divulge who it is. It's important to be able to to kind of step outside of that to not be so closely wedded to the the work that you can't see anything else. Absolutely. That's one of the things that is great about the work that we do is that yes, we can provide expert audits of their product and say, hey, based on our experience and best practices, these are some of the issues that we see, but even more valuable is having the quotes from their specific customers that say, you know, this is not what I want or. This is exactly what I want. You know whatever the case may be, so it's not like it's not that I hate your thing. Is that the people that you want to buy. Thing. So what maybe not hate, we don't want. We don't want to be that strong, but you gotta have to let them know that this is what your users are saying. So yeah, exactly. You mentioned school you went to Georgia Tech, which is here in Atlanta. What was your time like there that know that they had design program? There will go into that a little bit, but you started out there and industrial design. Talk about that for a little bit. Actually, I started out there as a computer science major. I I didn't know that they had to design program either until I got there. Like, like you said, I grew up here from middle school on and Georgia Tech was an awesome school. And so I was like, yeah, always been a geek always been a kind of a nerd as my. My dad's fault, I get honestly. So computer science was was the thing, man, I got here and I started..
"strother" Discussed on Revision Path
"As the experience that she provide for your customers. Right. And so if you think about you x. really a lot of times people focus on the interface or the look or feel of the after the website. But really, if you think more broadly, it's it's everywhere between the users. First interaction with the company and making that sale, I guess, and everything in between. I know sometimes when I talked to like freelancers and stuff like that, I always tell them to try to make sure they're adding more strategy to the work that they're doing because I mean, I think any designer, well, if we're talking about like web designer, graphic designer, etcetera, any designer can show that they're like competent and how to use Photoshop or whatever. And I think you know if they're trying to find clients trying to find work, that's not enough. You have to be able to kind of show that you can do more than that, like how you can be an asset to their project and really be able to help them succeed. Absolutely. I mean, he can't think so myopically really as designers depending on the industry. You're pretty much future teller. You're looking at where the market is where the products in the market are, and you're trying to come up with what people will like at some point in the future and being able to do that. That well is really a talent. Yeah, I agree with that. So what's your process when you're coming up like a new project? How do you approach a new project. All mining projects start with research. It's really, really difficult to come up with a viable solution if you don't really understand, you know what's been done the past what is being done currently, what the client would really like to see happen in the future. Kind of understand all the Allah various issues and problems and and desires that they have for their company moving forward. So kind of getting into the details with the stakeholders within the company, getting into the details with the stakeholders outside of the company. So the the customers, in some cases, getting into the details with kind of third party stakeholders. So the purchasers in some cases where the person who's going to be using the product is not actually the person who's required, who's responsible for making the purchase or acquiring the product, just kind of. Getting an understanding as deeply as I can for all of those different people involved with the product or service is where I like to start. And that really forms the basis of knowledge for what I need to to have to move forward with coming up with solutions for those issues that they've placed in front of us. So for designers that are listening to this kind of want to start using more you x. in their work, whether it's doing interviews or stuff like that. What kind of resources would you recommend for them? Oh, there's a lot psychology is is one thing that was really helpful for me when I was in school, I took a several cognitive psychology classes, so that comes into the some of the visual design that type of thing along the same lines, just being able to talk to people in understanding behaviors and how people make decisions is really key because at the end of the day and most cases, if you're a company selling product or service, which are really trying to do is convince your potential customers to become actual customers. And so understanding how people make decisions and what information they need in order to make that decision is really critical in order to convince them to actually buy what you're selling. Those are the those are the the biggest things to to start with. Once you're able to kind of take that time and talk. People when understand what their motivations are, what their desires are for particular product or service, then you can start to craft, you know something that will solve their issues. Sometimes I will hear people's kind of talk about that research part is being quote, unquote, a soft skill. I know even when I had my studio, I ran a studio for about nine years called lunch, and we would offer, you know, some sort of like you x..
