Black diversity in higher ed? We are not there yet
Yearly, the U.S. becomes more culturally diverse than ever before. We are not just a nation of immigrants; we are the nation of immigrants. More than any other nation in the world, the U.S. can and does boast of its diverse citizenry. Not only are we a nation of immigrants, we are also the most diverse country in the world due to slavery, specifically the enslavement of Africans, now known as Blacks or African-Americans. The history of the U.S. as a nation and its educational system is unique, and such contextual nuances play out in higher education.

Middle school's 3-D printing enrichment class helps girls discover STEM opportunities
Daily Reporter
A mechanical arm repeats the same pattern over and over, dispensing layer after layer of plastic to create the 3-D object designed by Maconaquah Middle School girls in a new enrichment class. The hum of the 3-D printers is a constant backdrop for the class, which meets for the last 25 minutes of the school day for nine weeks. At least one of the four MakerBot printers in Ron Shaffer's classroom is usually running, as it can take hours to print one item from the files he or his students create.

4 tips for attending job interviews without your boss knowing
The Huffington Post
Searching for a job while you're currently employed can be tricky, especially if you don't want your current employer to know you're looking for a job. You need to be particularly careful when scheduling job interviews. It's hard to navigate around your job's schedule when another company requests an interview with you during business hours. You don't want your boss to know just in case the opportunity falls through — after all, the job you have now is better than no job — so you must keep your job search discreet.

Dedicated to differences: Building diversity takes time, effort, but it makes good business sense
Crain's Detroit Business
How easy is it to overlook diversity in the heat of raising a growing business? Shockingly easy, Leon Richardson can tell you. Richardson spent 15 years building his Southfield, Michigan,-based chemical management company, ChemicoMays LLC, only to realize he had a very homogenous staff.

How public universities can promote access and success for all students
Center for American Progress

Current demographic trends show that non-Hispanic whites will no longer comprise a majority of the U.S. population by 2050, when they will make up just 47 percent of the population. Already, half of all U.S. births are children of color.

The Huffington Post
What does a discussion among women engineers sound like in U.S. Southeast? The South is not a region identified as a hub of STEM careers for women, but the massive influx of international manufacturers and their vendors has rapidly changed the landscape. This discussion was recently held in the office of the Interim Dean at the College of Engineering and Computer Sciences/ University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.

How a race for female tech talent might narrow the industry's gender pay gap
The Washington Post
In report after report, companies like Apple, Google and Facebook all acknowledge that their workforces tilt heavily male. Silicon Valley companies are notoriously dominated by men, particularly in leadership roles and in jobs involving advanced technical skills. Men account for seven in 10 workers at Twitter, for example. Many of these companies have pledged to do better — and what's heartening about this is that efforts to improve gender diversity could also wind up accelerating other positive workforce trends: namely, closing the gap between men and women when it comes to wages.
