Do black women need to relax their natural hair to get promoted in corporate America?
DiversityInc
I am a Black woman from continental Africa who chooses to have natural Black hair, not relaxed or chemically altered in any way. I wear my natural hair not as some political statement but because it is the hair that God gave me and intended me to have, just as it was intended for some Caucasians to have blue eyes or blond hair. I have heard about women and men of African descent being overlooked for promotions or outright being fired because they choose to wear their natural hair, braids, twists, mini Afros, locs and so forth.

Something about STEM drives women out
Cornell Chronicle
Just when the nation has a need for more workers in STEM fields, research at Cornell and the University of Texas at Austin finds that women have often found those fields inhospitable, and left for other kinds of jobs. In the first study to compare women in STEM with other professional women, Cornell professor Sharon Sassler and colleagues found that women in STEM fields have been more likely to move out of their field of specialty than other professional women.

As baby boomers leave the workforce, the millennials are infiltrating your offices. These millennials are becoming successful in their multitasking, challenge-thriving ways, but with that comes challenges. Ask yourself, can you lead a millennial effectively?

University of Michigan group promotes STEM education for young girls
The Michigan Daily
Most fourth-, fifth- or sixth- graders don't get the chance to learn from a college professor about how the brain sends signals to muscles or how a prosthetic limb works. That's unless they attended the recent event hosted by Females Excelling More in Math, Engineering and Science. The University of Michigan student-run organization arranged for girls to spend a day participating in activities in science, technology, engineering and math fields.

With all of the personality profiling that is done prior to hiring someone, winning people over is not always an instantaneous thing. It takes time — and in a social media world where everything is "immediate" and people expect things to happen in a moment's notice — leaders must be reminded of this.
