ZERO-ed out! NOBCChE board member leads Alabama A&M University's NASA Reduced Gravity Flight Team
NOBCChE
Alabama Agricultural and Mechanical University students went where only few have gone before when they experienced zero gravity as part of NASA's Microgravity Research Flight Program during the week of Nov. 8-15. AAMU's team, led by NOBCChE board member Dr. Malinda Gilmore, designed and built the experiment and transported it to NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston for tests aboard an aircraft modified to mimic a reduced gravity environment. The modified aircraft flew approximately 30 parabolas with roller-coaster like climbs and dips to produce periods of weightlessness and hyper-gravity ranging from 0 to 2gs.

INDUSTRY NEWS


Strategy for women in STEM
Inside Higher Ed
When researchers at Worcester Polytechnic Institute began surveying alumni to assess how their project-based curriculum impacted their students in the long term, they simply hoped to see that students did well after graduating. That appeared to be true. But what also emerged was evidence that WPI's approach to engineering education appeared to be substantially more effective for women, suggesting that a project-based curriculum may boost female success in the science, technology, mathematics and engineering fields.

Business Insider
When it comes to hiring talent, one CEO says she looks for a "diversity of thought" first and foremost. Paulett Eberhart, CEO of client services firm CDI Corporation, told the Wall Street Journal she always looks for thought diversity in the candidates she interviews. That means looking for people that bring different backgrounds and experiences to the table and, importantly, might be different from her.

Opinion: STEM education, business schools need to be joined at hip
ZDNet
STEM education is en vogue as the U.S. government and plenty of executives are bemoaning the lack of talent and worrying about this country's competitive edge. Meanwhile, business schools continue to churn out those students who become auditors, accountants and investment bankers. These two educational institutions — found at most universities — have existed as silos for decades. But that education as usual practice needs to end in a hurry.

Workforce racial gaps stagnate while rich get richer
DiversityInc
Despite efforts to close racial and ethnic inequities in the workforce, a new report shows that Blacks and Latinos are no closer to closing employment and salary gaps. The facts the report presents are not new: Blacks and Latinos earn less money and have higher unemployment rates than whites. But what the data show is that rather than narrowing gaps, the disparities on the graph below appear almost layered by race, indicating little, if any, change.

Employee engagement is a result of leader engagement
Business 2 Community
A few weeks ago, Gallup released its State of the Global Workplace Report 2013. The report is a result of an ongoing study of workplaces across 140 countries from 2011 through 2012. The most disturbing number pointed out in the study was the engagement levels of leadership. The common perception is that leaders are typically more engaged than frontline employees. The prevalent thinking is that the more vertical you go in an organization, the more of an emotional investment the individual has in the success of the organization.
