Why is gender diversity in tech so much easier to solve than racial diversity?
The Verge
Diversity is a serious problem in the technology industry. In recent months, major companies including Apple, Google, Facebook and Amazon have released statistics showing the severe lack of women and minorities in their workforces. For one of the most innovative industries, technology's progress on diversity has been depressingly slow.

The Christian Science Monitor
As the country strives to improve education in science, technology, engineering, and math, one issue that continues to dog the effort is a relative dearth of women in some key STEM fields at the nation's universities. In seeking to understand why women are underrepresented in many science and math fields, a study suggests that society sees them as lacking the 'innate brilliance' needed.

Truly inspirational leaders can dodge raindrops
Entrepreneur
For a leader, authenticity is definitely important. People respond to being with a real person, even if someone shows weakness, admits failure or is vulnerable. People want to be led by a real person. But sometimes there's a downside to appearing too human, showing too much doubt, concern or uncertainty.

Astrobiologist aims to make science education more interactive
Scientific American (blog)
I remember battling sleepiness as I slouched in a large lecture hall, squinting to make out the writing on the blackboard during my freshman introductory physics course in college. My difficulty staying alert in class was not the fault of the subject — I went on to major in physics — or even the teacher. Instead, I think it had to do with the passive format of the class and the "boring basics first" approach that introductory science courses often take.

Here's why 1 man has lied on his resume for the past 10 years
Business Insider
"Never lie on your résumé!" You've probably heard or read that at least a million times. And, generally speaking, it's a great piece of advice. But there is one scenario in which it's actually okay to lie. The Muse recently published an article that pointed to a blog post titled "My résumé is fiction" by Chris Baglieri. Baglieri is a Philadelphia-based engineer who starts the post by saying that he updates his résumé with falsehoods at the start of every year.

By Carol Heiberger
Are you looking forward to the new intern's arrival? There are so many things that you'd like her to do. In your vision, she does more than run for coffee and make the copies. Now, look at what interns actually know about your company, your products and your services. Nothing beyond what might be on the website. Quite the disconnect. In reality, they know as little as you did on your first day on the job. By the time they figure out what's going on, the summer will be over.

An MIT professor and Microsoft researcher's advice for black computer scientists
Quartz
James Mickens is a Microsoft researcher and an MLK visiting professor at MIT. On Jan. 19, he took to Reddit for an "Ask me Anything" session focused on his experience as an African American computer scientist. In an interview with Quartz after the AMA, Mickens said the overarching theme to his advice is to "be intentional." Figure out what it is you want professionally, and act with the purpose to achieve that goal. That advice is even more important for people from underrepresented communities in the field, because they have less benefit of the doubt and fewer connections to start with, Mickens tells Quartz.
