    7 lies that can sabotage your job search
    Forbes
    On a job search you need all the power you can muster. It isn’t easy out there pounding the pavement, or staying at home and filling out endless job application forms. It’s hard to get through a job search without a moderate-to-severe mojo drop. You wonder why it’s taking so long, and rage against whoever invented keyword-searching algorithms. A job search is isolating, and causes you to doubt yourself. You need all the resources you can gather!

    Study: Gender wage gap even worse for black women
    Diversity Inc.
    Several studies have shown the wide gender wage gap in this country, but a new study reveals that race creates an even bigger wage gap between men and women. While women, on average, make $0.77 for every $1 that men make, Black women average just $0.64 for every $1 made by white men, according to the study by the National Women’s Law Center. That adds up to about $18,650 a year based on a 40-hour work week and means they have to work nearly 19 months to make what white men do in 12.

    STEM alone is not enough
    The Huffington Post
    If one does a general Google search for STEM, there will be more than 60 million results. If you narrow the search to STEM education news, more than 70,000 articles will appear for the past year alone. The interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education has clearly become a national interest and priority, beginning as early as 2006 when President George W. Bush announced the American Competitiveness Initiative in his State of the Union message.

    Leadership lessons: Why it pays to put others first
    By Scott Steinberg
    A proud, time-honored tradition among leading organizations and brands, quality customer service has become more than just a given common courtesy today. It has also evolved to become a core necessity in the age of abundance, when dozens of competitors are just click or call away. Unsurprisingly, in today's hyperpaced world where information travels at the speed of tweet, customer service may even seem to have taken on an entirely new meaning — one core to any organization's survival.

    Diversity oversight? Obama's initiative, 'My Brother's Keeper, now includes all
    Diverse
    That 60 of the nation’s largest school districts are now joining in on President Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper program is indeed great news. The word of schools being in the mix gives the president’s $200 million dollar program the kind of “buy-in” it needs to really be successful. Notice, no new money has been added to the initiative. But now that schools are involved, it makes sense for local nonprofit and private sector sources to open up and get involved.

    NBC News

Across the country, summer programs are aimed at addressing a “pipeline problem” in science, technology, and math, encouraging students from underrepresented backgrounds — African Americans, Latinos and Native Americans — into pursuing careers in those fields.
