Why STEM funders give to colleges: A case study from Colorado
Inside Philanthropy
Hear the name Coors and you don't tend to think of science or math. You think of beer, the ultimate low tech product. But the Coors family also owns a ceramic company, CoorsTek, which makes some pretty technical products. Recently, CoorsTek and the Coors family made a $26.9 million gift to the Colorado School of Mines, which will go toward a new facility, a $45 million building that will be called the CoorsTek Center for Applied Science and Engineering. The rest of the gift will fund a research fellowship and state-of-the-art equipment for the building, including one of the country’s most advanced electron microscopes.

Black women interested in STEM fields, but face barriers
Houston Chronicle
Nationally, leaders all the way up to President Barack Obama have pushed to get more students interested in the fields, commonly known as STEM, that will be increasingly crucial to the American economy. While there is a need to get more STEM graduates into the workforce, the need is especially pronounced for minority and women students, as white males are still taking STEM classes and graduating with STEM degrees at a higher rate than most other student groups.

Why this STEM expert foresees a women in tech triumph
Forbes
A women in tech triumph is starting to unfold, as women working in the industry are fast becoming inspired to push their skills to success — in part following the breakthrough appointment of Google research star Megan Smith as America’s chief technology officer. In spite of declining numbers of women pursuing technology degrees and then entering the workplace, and many workplaces somewhat lacking in diversity, women are increasingly pushing for success in the industry, keen to help shape the high impact of IT on business operations and customers.

How big data can be used to fight unfair hiring practices
NextGov
Humans are fallible, biased creatures, and even the most well-intentioned hiring managers have a strong tendency to hire "look like me, act like me" candidates. Those unintended prejudices in recruitment — whether racial, gendered or economic — are shortcomings that a growing number of big-data firms are hoping they can help solve with their massive number-crunching operations. By mining troves of personal and professional data, these companies claim they can not only match employers with A-plus job candidates, but help close diversity gaps in the workforce, too.

U.S. News & World Report
When you’re searching for a job, nothing is more frustrating than sending out scores of résumés for positions you know you’re qualified for and not getting any interviews. If that’s happening to you, your résumé may be holding you back in some way. Of course, in a tight job market like this one, it can be hard to know if the issue is simply the market and the amount of competition out there or if your résumé itself is putting you at a disadvantage. Here are five of the biggest indicators that it's your résumé that's probably the problem.

What makes a workplace human?
Forbes
When you visit a new workplace, whether you’re on a job interview or you’re calling on a prospective client, you get a good feel for the atmosphere. You can tell within a few minutes of walking in the front door what it would be like to work there. You can tell whether the employees are chatting happily with one another and excited about their work, or trudging through the day with one eye on the clock. You can tell in little ways.

Unconscious bias is why we don't have a diverse workplace, says Google
Engadget
Statistics don't lie: If you're working at a Silicon Valley tech company, you're probably a guy. It's a big problem — most corporate-diversity reports show a male-dominated industry, and colleges are struggling to find new ways to enroll women in computer science and technology programs. It's not just a matter of attracting minorities to technology, however. Google says part of the problem is in our mind: a shared, unconscious bias that not only affects the makeup of Silicon Valley's workforce, but also affects what markets technology company's products reach.

Age discrimination: How to handle it in your job search
Forbes
If you follow Kathy Caprino's Forbes blog, you know that she has written over 150 posts around careers, job search, leadership, networking, women’s professional issues and more. One issue that Caprino finds extremely hard to nail down and address effectively, however, is age bias. We all know it exists, and many of us over 50 have faced it head on. The critical question isn’t “Is there age bias?” but “How should I handle it when I experience it?’
