The workforce is even more divided by race than you think
The Atlantic
The labor market is stratified, if not calcified, by race, with whites seeing higher wages and lower unemployment, while blacks and Hispanics cluster in lower-paying jobs. Let's begin with the fact that black unemployment is higher than Hispanic unemployment, which itself is higher than white unemployment. This hasn't just been true for the last year, or the last decade. It's been true for the last four decades and beyond.

How to shift paradigms like Marie Curie
Fast Company
It's dumbfounding, flabbergasting and flummoxing that society used to be as stupid as it was: like when, a scant century ago, Marie Curie, one of the most brilliant and kind and era-defining people of the past millennium was besmirched and belittled for the fact that she was a she, that there was a woman making the most significant scientific discoveries rather than some old white dude. As such, her life is an inspiration in the truest sense — that is, 79 years after her death, she's still breathing life into us.

6 things managers should not talk about at work
By D. Albert Brannen
Managers have a special role for employers because they are legal agents. What they say, do and know can be attributed to their employer. Depending on the issue, employers can be strictly liable for the conduct of managers. Several laws come into play here, but there are certain things that managers should absolutely not talk about with employees or anyone else at work. This article lists six of these topics, but by no means is this an exhaustive list.

Column: Lack of diversity in STEM is dangerous for our students
The Huffington Post
As a senior in high school, I had my sights set on attending the Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, N.J. I had just moved to the Garden State, having spent the previous four years living in Ecuador, where I was born, STEM teacher Natalia Chabebe writes. My guidance counselor tried to talk me into applying to a state school instead. Perhaps my school and guidance counselor didn't think I had it in me because they didn't see other Latinos excelling in the STEM fields.

Why you should rev up your job search during the holidays
Business Insider
As the weather gets colder and spirits grow merry, many job seekers unfortunately abandon the search and instead bake cookies and wrap gifts. The holidays are a busy time of year and many job seekers will put a pin in their search. This is because conventional wisdom says employers aren't hiring during the holiday season anyway. Whether you're looking for a job in medical sales or marketing, teaching or tech, the holiday season is actually a smart time to continue your search.
