2. Focus on outcomes not people

You will get a result, without calling people out, even if you know someone is at the root of something. Actually, people are more likely to act if they are not personally named, so if you want to see a change, this is the way to go.

5. Provide context and examples

The more specific you are, the more likely it is that someone can take action. The less specific you are, the less likely it is that anything will change.
