Each generation brings strengths, knowledge to nursing field: A nurse's journal
The Plain Dealer    Share   Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Over the last 30 years, changes to the face of nursing have been dramatic. Nurses are no longer predominantly women just out of high school. They are laid off workers who come from a variety of backgrounds. They are moms returning to the workforce after raising their children because they found it harder to make ends meet. They are men breaking the barriers of gender and who are now seeing nursing as a lucrative second career. More

Ithaca Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In the private sector, affirmative action quotas seem to have fallen by the wayside in favor of other, more proactive practices. Diane Bradac, director of Tompkins Workforce New York, said, increasingly, this takes the form of social networking, both online and in the real world, with recruiters attending events in underrepresented communities and headhunting at the professional level.

Affirmative action ban advances in Utah House
The Associated Press via Google News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Lawmakers moved quickly to place a ban on affirmative action in the Utah Constitution, despite little evidence the practice is being used or has caused problems. A resolution that would prevent local governments, state agencies and public colleges from discriminating or providing preferential treatment based on race, sex, color, ethnicity or national origin sailed through a legislative committee only two days after it was made public.

Better diversity in schools leads to diverse workplace
Alaska Journal of Commerce via Peninsula Clarion    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In the coming years, Alaska's population is in for a serious shakeup: workplaces will become more racially diverse, young people will gradually edge out their seniors and the number of women will begin to creep up on the larger proportion of males, said state Department of Labor economist Neal Fried. To draw his conclusion regarding race, Fried took a look at Anchorage's school population, arguing that this is a great indicator of future workforce diversity because many of these children will go on to enter the work in Anchorage when they grow up.

Is learning Spanish in the workplace important to you?
Fast Pitch    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
We know how difficult it can be for health care professionals to communicate with non-English speaking Hispanic patients. Unless a competent interpreter is readily available, both, the health care giver and patient may miss important details which may affect the quality of patient care. For Hispanic patients who are seeking relief from their physical ailments, the inability to express themselves in English adds even more frustration and stress to their unpleasant situation. The health care professional has the challenging task of deciphering the Spanish dialogue and reading the patients' body language. More

Economic upheaval changes meaning of 'diversity'
IT Business Edge    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Discussions of diversity in the workplace tend to fall into two buckets. They're either robotic proceedings in which requisite, if fleeting, attention is paid to providing an inclusive environment for minorities, or they’re heated debates about the legitimacy of addressing what many see as an exercise in blind political correctness. I tend to see the topic in terms of an upending of the world’s equilibrium. More
