Ursula commented on It starts with a story

Hi Talia,
Placing a name on a story is a good way to connect people. It transforms a problem that is happening somewhere to someone into a problem that is happening, for example, to a 16 yr old named Rahul in India. The latter is something that readers may tend to relate to as it feels more tangible and close than a general definition of a problem. That would be helpful in triggering empathy and a willingness to help. I would suggest adding stories, maybe timelines with images, of the positive results too, so that people could see how at the end their involvement had a tangible impact in a person's life.
Also, your portfolio was a great read! I loved to learn about your projects in India and Lebanon, congratulations!

Ursula commented on OpenIDEO Conversations

Hi there!
I like your idea of adding translations and recording options to promote inclusion in the conversations. If you think of it, the current website can only be used if you know English (which many people around the world don't know). So, some useful ideas and contributions might be left out due to the language barrier.

Ursula commented on Global Inclusion Challenge | Who are you excluding?

Hi Kenneth, interesting perspective.
Who did you left out? whose opinion/experience/insight is missing? You are calling for inclusion in a way that makes me think if I am really taking into consideration all the people that should be involved in a project.
