INDUSTRY NEWS


The link between STEM training and civil rights
Nextgov
Securing America’s future in science, technology, engineering and math fields requires more than expanding opportunities for women. Promoting interest and opportunities for minorities also should be a national imperative, particularly as more than half of children born in the United States today are of minority descent. That was the topic of a symposium at the National Academy of Sciences that sought to find solutions for providing minorities and women with proven pathways for obtaining good jobs and a higher standard of living through STEM education.

Science Codex
During the past few decades, the field of biology has dramatically expanded, incorporating many diverse sub-disciplines and specialty areas such as microbiology and evolutionary biology.

To win with natural talent, go for additive effects
Gallup
Your company isn't growing fast enough. It's tempting to blame the economy, but plenty of companies have thrived during these tough times. Though you may think the problem is your technology or processes, the real problem is that you don't have enough star employees. Technologies and processes continue to evolve, but how companies manage and develop stars hasn't improved over the past decade.

Studies of STEM-focused schools yield mixed results
Education Week
For those who are concerned that the nation is starving for students who specialize in science, technology, engineering and math, STEM-focused schools are a popular solution.

But the results of several new studies raise questions about the overall efficacy of this approach.

Scores of young white men in T-shirts and hoodies. A fair number of Asians and south Asians. A few Hispanics. Rarely blacks. And a smattering of women.

Harvard Business Review
It’s tempting to caricature Millennial workers as bright-eyed idealists, given their loudly stated preference for having a social impact through their careers. Either that or as narcissists only out for themselves. But neither is quite true, according to a new paper from The Brookings Institution. It’s easy to cherry-pick from the data to verify a stereotype about Millennials one way or the other, but the holistic picture painted by the paper is more subtle.

How to find support when job searching while unemployed
U.S. News & World Report
During the Great Recession, Joan Cirillo, president and CEO of Operation A.B.L.E. of Greater Boston, found herself working with everyone from unskilled/low skilled laborers all the way up to unemployed C-Level executives. And today, the demand for services has not let up. Her agency “focuses like a laser on helping people over 45 get back to work.” In a typical year, Operation A.B.L.E. aids about 1,000 job seekers, and this year the number is likely to top-out closer to 1,200.
