LATEST DIVERSITY NEWS


Diversity in tech: Going beyond lip service
CNET
It's the little things that can speak volumes. Take the "How innovation happens" panel at the South by Southwest conference in Austin, Texas, in March. White House technology chief Megan Smith, Steve Jobs' biographer Walter Isaacson and Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt were on stage discussing ways to spur new thinking in the technology industry, in part by attracting more women and people of color.

But the audience noticed more than just what was being said. They also picked up on how the two men kept interrupting Smith, a former top Google executive who was tapped by President Barack Obama last year to be the country's chief technology officer.

Using the law to achieve boardroom diversity — and redistribute power
Forbes
Imitation, they say, is the sincerest form of flattery. But when it comes to corporate norms, geographical differences are often touted as good reason for anomalies. As far as diversity on the boards of publicly listed companies across the globe is concerned, it is clear the law has been used in two ways — through mandatory quotas or required disclosure.

Now, a book titled "Challenging Boardroom Homogeneity," by Aaron Dhir, transcends geographies and studies both approaches, looking at the reality and experience of Norway's quota system in its European context and its implications for the United States.
