Diversity Does Matter
from Forbes Woman Magazine
Siemens executive Jill Lee recently took a detour from an impressive record of advancement to help the German conglomerate diversify its global staff. A 160-year-old firm with 430,000 employees worldwide, Siemens sells technology and equipment for medical imaging, power generation and transportation.
Employers Appear Divided Over Health Care
from United Press International
Despite intense lobbying efforts against national health care reform, signs indicate that employers generally say they are divided on the issue. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce warned in an ad campaign that Democratic bills on health care would lead to a government takeover of the health system.
Hispanic Nurses a Growing Force
from San Antonio Express-News
Norma Martinez Rogers took the helm of the National Association of Hispanic Nurses with the twin goals of increasing the number of Hispanic nurses to help with health disparities in that community and building the group's political clout. Those two themes also dominate the group's annual conference, being held through Friday in San Antonio, where Martinez Rogers grew up.
UnitedHealth Shows Diversity as Profit Beats Views
UnitedHealth Group Inc. recently posted stronger-than-expected second-quarter profit, helped by growth in the insurer's plans for elderly and low-income Americans and in its drug benefit business, and its shares rose 2 percent. The largest U.S. health insurer by market value also held down administrative costs better than analysts expected and raised the low end of its 2009 earnings forecast.
Adults With Disabilities Help Business Work
People with autism and other disabilities are valuable members of the workforce. But experts say they sometimes have difficulty securing employment because of accessibility and attitudinal barriers. In fact, despite the majority of people with disabilities reporting that they want to work, a National Organization on Disability poll found that only three out of 10 adults with disabilities actually do. Given today's economy, it's more challenging than ever for people with disabilities to secure jobs.

Lift Barriers for a More Inclusive Community
from Rochester Democrat & Chronicle
At the risk of alienating millions of Americans, President Obama didn't bite his tongue last week in warning that racial barriers still exist. Speaking at the NAACP's 100th convention in New York City, Obama acknowledged the reality faced by countless people of color. But the nation's first black president also didn't mince words in emphasizing the importance of minority group members taking a pro-active role in shaping their own future, mainly through education.
Little Hope for Pay Parity in 2010, but the Fight Continues
from The Washington Post
"Pay parity" is a mantra federal civilian employees have long chanted to bring about a desired state of income. For most of the past 30 years, they have used the power of positive thinking, not to mention good, hard lobbying, to persuade Congress they should get the same pay raise as members of the military.
