Intentional inclusion in the workplace and marketplace
Diversity Executive
Diversity and inclusion are requirements for today’s global enterprises to effectively reach diverse talent, reflect the marketplace and create authentic connections with customers, suppliers and communities. But to fully realize their potential, organizations have to overcome traditional compartmentalized thinking and view the enterprise as an ecosystem with interdependent stakeholders, both internal and external, who each influence and shape the others.

Improving physician satisfaction and care management efficiencies
Becker's Hospital Review
The first step is to gain a better understanding of physician behaviors. Individual behaviors are molded by a number of different influencing factors which include age (generational preferences), gender, culture and ethnicity, and other life experiences that help shape a person's individual personality. Behavioral issues affected by these factors may be addressed through a variety of programs that include diversity training, conflict management training or education on best ways to approach values influenced by generation, gender, cultural or personality differences.

Diversity recruiting: What's wrong with it? (Part 1 of 2)
There was a great deal of publicity generated recently when Google’s Laszlo Bock openly announced Google’s diversity numbers. Even Google was disappointed in them, but that shouldn’t be a surprise. Almost every major corporation struggles with meeting its diversity goals as a result of a poorly designed diversity recruiting effort that hasn’t changed much since the 1970s.

3 surprising reasons diversity training fails

Replacing horizontal violence in the nursing profession
By Keith Carlson
Nurse bullying and so-called "horizontal violence" are rampant in our profession. Nurses bully and harass one another, using intimidation and other tactics as they jockey for power in a healthcare system that does not proactively attempt to prevent such disruptive behavior. Sadly, new nurses enter the profession already understanding that nurses "eat their young," thus the expectation that we will likely be bullied or harassed on the job is instilled in us from the beginning. And that is a sad state of affairs, indeed.

Employers need to be aware of subtle discrimination facing female execs
Bloomberg BNA
Discrimination against female managers and executives often tends to be subtle, but the impact on an employer — which can include recruitment and retention problems, bad publicity and potential litigation — is not, according to attorneys and employment analysts. Although employers have become more cognizant of bias against women in the workplace, disparities, not only in pay but also in the way female executives are perceived as opposed to their male counterparts, are still a problem in many workplaces.
