Making STEM a part of everyday life
U.S. News & World Report
Exposure to science, technology, engineering and mathematics is a cornerstone of a 21st Century education, and proficiency in STEM-related skills is vital to a globally competitive workforce.

Help wanted: 3 ways to minimize new-hire risk
By Catherine Iste
Great news: Companies are hiring again. In fact, today's Labor Department numbers show unemployment in the U.S. falling to 6.3 percent — the lowest figure since September 2008. But with each new hire comes threats to the organization's integrity. From potential shifts in the culture with each new personality to actual security breaches and confidentiality of trade secrets, we invite potential threats in the door with each hiring decision. Most organizations hedge against these risks with steps in the recruiting process like behavioral interviews and background checks. Are these steps enough?

Getting girls to study STEM is about more than making science 'cool'
U.S. News & World Report
Today, technical fields of study — and the workplaces they feed into — are attracting and retaining more white males than other candidates in the U.S. Looking back to 1984, women represented 37 percent of all computer science graduates, and today, that number is 12 percent. Both of these trends are bad for women and minorities, who are at risk of being left out of the best opportunities, and bad for our economy as a whole.

Expand your influence with 10 timeless leadership lessons
Forbes
Leaders are in search of distinction as they seek to have their impact felt and their influence reverberate throughout their organizations. As all industries attempt to reinvent themselves in order to elevate the value of their brand proposition, the competitiveness of their people and their sustainable financial foothold in the marketplace, many organizations still lack leadership substance — the well roundedness and required wisdom to stay ahead of the game.

Want to increase workplace diversity? There's an app for that
TakePart
To say that the tech industry has a diversity problem would be an understatement. Even though some companies keep the number of female and minority hires under wraps, it's no secret that a "brogrammer" likely developed the app you just downloaded. But having a diverse team has many benefits (such as more creative ideas, a larger market share and profitability), so Silicon Valley is fixing the situation the way it knows best: through an algorithm.

Why are female scientists missing?
LiveScience
I have given many talks to schools in the UK and across the United States regarding neuroscience, science in the media and careers in STEM — and it never ceases to amaze me how many students inherently love science, even if they are not interested in a science career, Sai Pathmanathan writes. But trying to make someone choose STEM when they are not interested is not the way forward. Showing everyone what STEM subjects can help them with, is.
