Nature

Why we need women in STEM
Inc.
This month, Lego is releasing a miniset of female scientists — a first for the 82-year-old toymaker. The idea comes from a female geochemist, Dr. Ellen Kooijman, who played with the bricks as a child and noticed there weren't any figures that looked like her. That Lego's "revolutionary" new toy comes from a woman isn't a surprise. When women design new products or services, they bring a different perspective that too often hasn't been considered before.

Why workplace diversity efforts struggle
Fortune
No question about it, companies’ campaigns to hire and promote more minorities (including, in some industries, women) have created workplaces that do a far better job of reflecting the growing diversity of the U.S. population than was true even a decade ago. Yet some employers are puzzled by the stubborn fact that such hires don’t move up as often or as fast as their credentials suggest they might, and some don’t even stay. Why?

It’s not just that there aren’t enough skilled workers to fill the jobs; it’s that the skills workers have aren’t specific enough. “The big issue about filling jobs that require STEM skills is having a more skills-based approach to training,” says Fred Dedrick, executive director of the National Fund for Workforce Solutions.
