10 days later

I’ve mentioned the power of 10 before now; it’s about reviewing an event 10 days, 10 weeks, or 10 months later to establish what change has happened.

We’re 10 days or so after #IWD2023 and just over 12k views of the posts which were graciously submitted by a team of smart women.

Some thoughts of mine after the posts have been published:

  • There’s no need to submit a post and ask if it’s good enough. If it’s good enough to send, it’s good enough to post. This happened a few times.
  • Tone of voice matters. The posts which were authentic and from the heart were appreciated more.
  • Breaking rules. The posts had a nominal limit of 120 words but someone broke the rules and sent 180 words. Did I edit it? No. The rules are there to be challenged.
  • The topics I thought would fly weren’t the fliers.
  • The posts have more reach than you think. 2nd and 3rd level connections on LinkedIn engaged with them and, since I was speaking at an online US based event last week, a global reach.
  • I will do it again next year. It’s a simple and active way for me to use my privilege to change things.

Go back and see which other activity is still being supported after #IWD2023.

Does evidence of the #IWD2023 party still exist – posters and cake crumbs? Or is it now the 5th story down on the intranet and have the noticeboard posters become wallpaper?
