Surgeon general wants more minority doctors
The Associated Press via Google News    Share   Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The new U.S. surgeon general called for stepped-up efforts to increase the number of minority physicians. Dr. Regina Benjamin noted that the proportion of U.S. physicians who are minorities is only 6 percent — the same as a century ago. The 53-year-old Benjamin was speaking at a conference on health disparities in downtown Atlanta. She told health leaders to encourage young minorities to pursue careers in medicine and other ambitions. More

Ending LGBT bias
Human Resource Executive    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Employment discrimination based on sexual orientation is persistent in both the private and public sector, according to a new study. As Congress hears testimony on a federal bill banning such bias, HR leaders should be proactive in prohibiting conduct that does not promote inclusiveness. But, as one expert notes, such bias "is often in the ears of the listener, and not as often in the heart of the speaker." More

More women needed in executive and board posts
The Kansas City Star    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In 2008, a full third of Kansas City's top 39 public companies didn't claim a single woman in top management, either as executives or in the boardroom. More than half had no women on their boards. And about 60 percent had no women in top executive spots. That’s 1950s thinking almost 60 years later. With women making 80 percent of consumer buying decisions and now filling half the workforce, the scarcity at the top is seriously out of step. More

Diversity requires more than policies, practices, programs
Canwest News Service via The Vancouver Sun    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
For Cheryl Tjok-A-Tam, the last five years at the Royal Bank have been what she calls "a remarkable experience." Tjok-A-Tam, 39, is a woman of color who came to Canada from her native Jamaica as a child. Through a heady combination of talent and the bank’s broad range of diversity and inclusion programs, she has risen quickly through the ranks and is now head of the program management office at RBC's national contact center in Mississauga, Ontario.

Aging workforce brings injury concerns
MedPage Today    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The growing population of older workers faces more severe health risks on the job, according to a consensus report recommending legislative and workplace action to improve conditions for them. Nurses were a key risk group identified in the report, which was based on the Healthy Aging for Workers conference organized by the Association of Occupational and Environmental Clinics and the Society of Occupational and Environmental Health and held earlier this year in Silver Spring, Md.

Miami hospital staffers deny anti-gay bias
The Tampa Tribune    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In a case that for two years has reverberated nationwide with accusations of anti-gay bias at Jackson Memorial Hospital, nurse Natalee Wrisk retains a vivid memory: examining the chart at the bedside of Lisa Marie Pond, 39, who was close to death, unconscious and on a ventilator. The chart showed that Pond's partner, Janice Langbehn, had power of attorney to make medical decisions on her behalf. The nurse had been in a same-sex relationship for nine years at that point, she said, and when she saw the chart she realized she didn't have such a document drawn up for herself - and she should have.

Ignorance of HIV/AIDS and discrimination against those who live with it apparently runs high in Indonesia, a country with one of the fastest-growing HIV infection rates in the region.  A 30-year-old woman living with HIV, identified as LD, told the Jakarta Globe that health workers in a Central Jakarta hospital had told her that she had to have a tubectomy, a surgical procedure for permanent female contraception.  More
