Diversity means different things to different races
Science 2.0

Sacramento was named Time magazine's most diverse city but a basketball player, Chris Webber, claimed it was not diverse enough — he moved there from Detroit, a city that is 83 percent black.

3 concrete steps companies should take to foster gender balance in leadership
Fast Company
It’s not just bad business today to ignore women in the workplace. It’s risky business. Women make up 50 percent of the workforce, have higher education levels than men, are often the primary breadwinners in their families, yet end up underpaid and underrepresented in the workplace. According to UNICEF, women do 66 percent of the world's work, but only earn 10 percent of the world's income.

Watching chemistry in motion: Chemical environments mapped using molecular vibrations
Phys.org
Scientists have long known that a molecule's behavior depends on its environment. Taking advantage of this phenomenon, a group of researchers at the University of Chicago developed a new technique to map microscopic environments using the vibrations of molecules. "It's a special new advance that will be broadly useful in studies of molecular and materials phenomena," said Andrei Tokmakoff, the Henry G. Gale Distinguished Service Professor in Chemistry at University of Chicago.

STEM researchers: Do we produce right stuff?
Diverse
Last year’s broad and strident attention to the Obama administration’s effort to consolidate and streamline the nation’s STEM education programs prompted John Nemeth to report the results of a NIH-SWAM project survey he did on STEM Ph.D. and graduate school candidacy. Paired with the administration’s “bloody sword of reality,” the efforts out of RTI and Indiana University, nicely summarized in Science, bring some form and substance to the notion that we produce enough STEM graduates.
