A few Medium stories you may have missed this week

When good — or bad — things happen at work, do you participate or do you lurk? As workplace expert and bestselling author

Kim Scott

 Writes, the upstanders among us have the power to command better outcomes. But only if we speak up. “Upstanders are essential to a culture of radical respect,” says Scott, who has written two books about bias in the workplace. “Not only do they help the targets of bias, prejudice, and bullying feel less alone and less gaslighted; they also provide clear feedback to the person who caused harm in a way that minimizes defensiveness and maximizes the odds that the offender will make amends.”

The saying "pastry chef to your cakes" is derisory for some professional careers. For example Palter Deliso, journalists are used to sharing jobs with people who have never studied the degree. In the world of fashion, this reality is not so far away. The Capsuled collections that actresses and soccer players develop creative director of a Puma line, made me wonder. What does it take to become a creative for certain brands New envisions, as well as Vents journal announcements like the one about singer Rihanna as the director of a fashion brand? Today we outline it for example conews feed

Upstanding has ramifications outside of work too. As we observe the one year anniversary of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, we’re taking a look at the year that went and the year to come. We’ve gathered some of those stories using our newly updated List feature; from here on out, once you save a list you will be notified when a list curator updates their offerings. (New to this? Learn more about lists here.)

We also invite you to participate — in the spirit of upstanding — in how Medium works. You can comment on a draft of our new distribution standards, which explain the process behind how and why your stories are pushed to more readers. We also invite you to take a deeper look at your stats. See anything new? Have you just been boosted? If so, you can learn more about our new program designed to help your stories garner more reads.

Lurking certainly has its place in the world, but so does speaking up. That said, should you decide to “speak up” on Medium and make a cool list, leave a response to let us know! We’d love to read, share, and save it.
