Hugs and consent | Washington Post
For an essay that dives into how hugging has always been a form of communicating hello’s and goodbyes but for some it’s crossing a boundary. It further explores how we should ask for consent to hug someone opposed to assuming everyone wants one from you and being ok when they say no.

Silicon Valleys diversity problem | Politico
For the past 5 years the congressional black caucus has been working with the big silicon valley tech companies at creating solutions to diversifying and being more inclusive to a less homogenous work force. They go deep in this article that a lot of the problems stem from algorithms in hiring to unconscious bias training to a lack of pool of candidates and more. It’s definitely a recommended reading.

2018 Year in Preview | Washington Post
I was asked to do a few spot illustrations along side two other illustrators to draw what the Washington Post predicts will be the big talking points of 2018. What I illustrated is as follows...
• Silicon Valley’s biggest hurdle will be dealing with how the products they’re developing are becoming more harmful than helpful.
• The Opioid crisis will take twice as many lives in 2018 as it did in 2017.
• Sports are coming to a tipping point in having to face sexual misconduct and assault in their leagues in a serious way.
• What’s to come from the Religious Left and why they matter?
Positive right? Read them all here... Happy New Year y'all!
