The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
Neurodiverse Leadership Toastmasters, a nonprofit educational organization, invites adults to attend its open house on Saturday, February 4, 2023, at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST). The online event will provide an opportunity to meet members and hear Matt Kinsey, a Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM) and the current Toastmasters International President, talk about creating a culture of inclusion within organizations.
Neurodiverse Leadership Toastmasters (NLTM) empowers its members to develop their leadership and communication skills in a supportive and positive learning environment. “The club is creating a neuroinclusive environment that is open to different thinking styles, resulting from genetic or environmental factors,” says Jenny Liu, the club sponsor and president who is also a Registered Parliamentarian trained in human-centered design.
Since research suggests that the neurodiverse community speaks different social languages, NLTM aims to support members in practicing how to communicate authentically and safely both at home and work with constructive feedback. For example, club member, Monica C. Moya, JD, coined the word “neurolytical” to define herself because she must analyze everything about the people she interacts with to determine how to respond properly. Moya added, “Social situations—whether one-on-one or larger groups, family or strangers—are like chess games to me. Social cues are like the rules that govern how each chess piece can move. Neurotypicals naturally understand them and follow them effortlessly. My autism presents in such a way that most social rules never get set in concrete. So, for me, conversations are like trying to lasso a chicken while reading Emily Post’s Etiquette.”
During the event, attendees will also have the opportunity to experience a shorter version of a regular club meeting, including prepared speeches, Table Topics™, and evaluations. The meeting will be led by charter members with a range of experiences in nonprofit, government, and corporations.
Other members, including accredited public speakers, caregivers, and managers, are working to raise awareness and celebrate the collective achievements from complementing the unique talents of neurotypical and neurodivergent individuals. By enabling members to discover and realize their potential for personal and professional development without focusing on disorders or deficits, the club hopes to advance members' social lives and careers. For instance, Kassandra Pierre, an assistant vice president in technology talent development for a Fortune 500 company in the financial services sector, expresses, “I joined the club to increase my comfort level with presenting to audiences and to elevate my presentations with constructive feedback. I wanted to effectively moderate panel discussions that promoted the mission of women in cybersecurity, which is to recruit, hire, and retain more neurodivergent employees.”
The open house is free and open to the public. To attend, please register at https://bit.ly/nltm-rsvp. NLTM meets on the first Saturday at 1 p.m. and second Wednesday at 8 p.m. EST of each month online, via Zoom video conferencing.
