Diversity: Pride in science
Nature
“I was the golden child,” says Justin Trotter, thinking back to his teenage years living near the Kennedy Space Center in Brevard County, Florida. The handsome, articulate son of a devout Mormon family, he earned top grades, assembled winning projects for science fairs and worked in university laboratories from the age of 14. But he was also wrestling with a secret. Trotter, now a neuroscience postdoc at Stanford University in California, says that as early as the ages of 11 or 12 he had begun to sense that he was attracted to boys — a feeling that he had always been taught was shameful.

Are women too timid when they job search?
Forbes
In her recent Harvard Business Review (HBR) blog post, “Why Women Don’t Apply for Jobs Unless They’re 100 percent Qualified,” women’s leadership coach Tara Sophia Mohr cited this compelling statistic from a Hewlett Packard internal report: Men apply for a job when they meet only 60 percent of the qualifications, but women apply only if they meet 100 percent of them.

Everything you need to know about how the workplace is evolving

Today we are seeing a punctuated equilibrium, a radical rethinking of what it means to be an employer or employed. Whichever you are now, your future is about to change.

Does think tank diversity matter?
PBS
What comes to mind when you hear the words “think tank?" Do you ever wonder about the individuals responsible for the endless polls and reports released by these organizations? Think tanks play a considerable role in determining the national agenda and organizing conversations around key issues. Their research is often translated into policy recommendations and sometimes even into law. As such, it is important to ask, how transparent are most think tanks about their funding and hiring practices, and how balanced are their research teams?

Diversity in STEM: What is is and why it matters
Scientific American
Innovations resulting from science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields have positively touched nearly every aspect of human life. Scientific innovations do not arise on their own; each is brought forth through the hard work and ingenuity of scientists. Therefore, the quality of the scientific research enterprise, and its ability to meet the needs of, and positively impact the lives of individuals, communities, nations and the world is inextricably linked to the individual “STEMists” involved.

Chemists discover way nose perceives common class of odors
Phys.org
Biologists claim that humans can perceive and distinguish a trillion different odors, but little is known about the underlying chemical processes involved. Biochemists at The City College of New York (CCNY) have found an unexpected chemical strategy employed by the mammalian nose to detect chemicals known as aldehydes. According to a team led by CCNY Associate Professor of Chemistry Kevin Ryan and Columbia biologist Stuart Firestein, some of the nose's many aldehyde receptors don't detect the aldehyde by its structure and shape directly. Rather, the aldehyde is recognized by its ability to undergo a chemical reaction with water, likely after entering the nose.

The next women's movement is integrating men: 6 critical steps
Forbes
As a writer about women’s issues in business and life, Kathy Caprino has tackled many aspects of what hinders women from advancing to equality — in the domestic arena, the global economy, and in political and business life and leadership. It’s a vast topic — complex, rich and multifaceted — with factors and influences that defy easy quantification or understanding. But one thing is easy to see: Equality of women cannot progress without involvement of — and collaboration with — men.

Championing STEM for minorities
Lab Manager
Emily Hernandez didn’t wait until college to start recruiting fellow minorities to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. She started as an eighth-grader during a University of Memphis camp called Girls Experiencing Engineering near her Germantown, Tennessee, hometown. Today, the junior in electrical engineering is still recruiting minorities to engineering through the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers at Missouri S&T. Hernandez, who serves as secretary of the group, says she wants to see more diversity in the engineering field.
