“Smart people think on their feet.

Extroverts buzzing away

introverts are quiet.

Conference calls

can notoriously circulate

unproductive insights.

has obvious flaws.

talk to think

think to talk

undermine

new insights.

The men in the room

Manterrupting,

Mansplaining

Bropropriating.

and out of sight.

undermine ideas

hilariously.

spoofed

and mocked.

is the strategy — -

realizing full potential

of the few

who easily

make their voices heard.
