    I worked in Human Resources for 15 years. You may think this is the group that processes payroll and plans the company picnic. However, when I entered the profession, it was becoming a differentiating factor. The performance management model at General Electric had become a strategic advantage. The focus of my graduate program was measuring and maximizing human capital. Saying human capital is a dirty word now. However, at that time, it was viewed as the ability to measure the knowledge, skill, productivity, skill, and potential of individuals in the workforce. Then the goal was to translate that information into...

    Teachers in Virginia's largest school district have developed a new "anti-racist" and "culturally responsible" curriculum that will be available to students as early as this fall. Social studies teachers from Fairfax County collaborated with other Virginia public school teachers to revamp their history curriculum, using a framework from Teaching Tolerance, the educational arm of the liberal nonprofit Southern Poverty Law Center. The new curriculum encourages students to "examine materials, events, and institutions critically attending to power, position, and bias" and will be available for use in 3rd, 4th, 6th, 7th, and 11th-grade classrooms. Colleen Eddy, Fairfax County Public Schools social...

    Future historians with an eye for inflection points may well focus on the Wall Street Journal of June 12, 2020. A page 1 banner reads, “Companies Pledge Actions to Promote Racial Justice” and recounts how in response to the George Floyd killing, Apple and Google are pledging millions to promote racial inclusion. Less than a week later, Google was more specific: allocating $175 million to sharply increase the number of black Google executives (30% by 2025), upping the firm’s anti-racism efforts, $100 million for black owned start-ups, $15 million for improved training for black job applicants and $3 million to...

    A new study has revealed staggering income inequality in Silicon Valley and an astonishing lack of diversity within its top technology companies. Researchers at San Jose State University' Human Rights Institute unveiled the results of the study, dubbed the Silicon Valley Pain Index, on Tuesday. Among the most dramatic findings were that 10 'large tech companies' - which were not named specifically - employ zero black women, and the net worth of the top 10 richest people in Silicon Valley - all of whom are white men - is an eye-watering $248billion.

    Footage shows yobs pelting cops with rocks as a German police union boss said that "young people with a migrant background" were among those arrested. The riots on Saturday night began in reaction to the arrest of a white German 17-year-old for drugs offences - prompting hundreds of people to start attacking the police in "solidarity" with the teen. Videos from the scene even show rioters attacking paramedics who had been called to the scene, which local media described as a "battlefield". At least 40 shops had been ransacked while 19 police officers were injured in the night of horrific...

    To think this gang was so proud of the cowardice behaviour that they shared it on Snapchat makes me sick to my stomach. The scary thing is it happened in the middle of the day, in front of bystanders who did nothing to help the defenceless child. How could you witness such a thing happening to a little girl and refuse to intervene? I’ve spoken to the victim’s mother, and she says the worst part of it wasn’t even shared, moments later they dragged her daughter off the bench and stomped on her. They hospitalised their victim who sustained numerous...

    Facebook has a secret “Diversity Initiative Board” that governs the latest diversity push by the company, but those in the know are ordered to keep its existence quiet, according to an alleged internal HR report obtained by Project Veritas. According to the Project Veritas report, the alleged Facebook memo explains that the Diversity Initiative Board (DIB) will be allowed to recommend termination or reeducation in a “Diversity Training” program for any unlucky Facebook employee who gets in the way of the company’s new diversity initiative. The alleged memo, intended for Facebook employees working in the company’s HR department, insists that...

    The Texas A&M University System Board of Regents on Monday unanimously approved the creation of a $100 million scholarship fund to help the system's 11 universities address "diversity issues," as well as bolster aid meant for students who are economically disadvantaged or in the first generation of their families to attend college. The aid comes in the middle of the economic crisis spurred by COVID-19, which has left many families out of work. It also comes as protests continue in Texas and nationwide over police brutality and systemic racism. At the A&M System's flagship campus in College Station, protests in...

    In the past, U.S. corporations have largely remained silent as protests erupted over killings of African-Americans by police officers. That changed with the May 25 death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, which has set off a flurry of corporate statements of solidarity with the black community – along with pledges of more than $1.7 billion to advance racial justice and equity. The unprecedented outpouring of support, however, has stirred up criticism along with praise. Many social justice advocates, corporate diversity experts and investors say companies also need to focus on equity in their own ranks, especially by hiring and promoting...

    (Right to Life UK) – A Chinese biotech firm has declared “screening out” babies with Down syndrome is a “cash cow” funding the growth of the whole business. The admission comes from a spokesperson for BGI Group – a Chinese genetics conglomerate whose main business is offering non-invasive prenatal tests, primarily used to diagnose Down syndrome. In a segment from an Aljazeera documentary titled Genesis 2.0, the spokesperson gestures towards a digital map of the world and says: “You can see clearly, especially for Down’s syndrome, we have nearly two million samples all over the world.

    Colleges are laying off their adjunct faculty, who mostly are women and people of color. Keisha Blain attended a top program in her field, collaborated with renowned scholars and wrote an award-winning dissertation — all of which she was sure would lead to an immediate and secure academic appointment. But upon graduating from Princeton University with a Ph.D. in history in 2014, she discovered that she had vastly underestimated the number of scholars seeking tenure-track positions. Blain was competing not only against her direct peers, but also against talented scholars who hadn't been able to find steady work in the...

    Any tax-funded bailouts for higher ed need to be contingent upon urgent structural reforms, and a new paper from the National Association of Scholars provides the blueprint. Should universities receive taxpayer-funded bailouts? The answer depends on who you ask. According to Universities U.K., the lobby group for British universities, the answer is an unequivocal yes, even when the suggestion has caused some dithering and calls for a further probe into the Conservative-led government.The Russell Group Universities, the British version of the American Ivies, will be the hardest hit due to the latest crisis, according to one study.

    The woman who accused her estranged, NASA astronaut wife of hacking her bank account from space has been charged with making false statements to federal authorities, officials said this week. Summer Worden, 44, was indicted by a federal grand jury in Houston in what was the latest twist in her bizarre saga with decorated NASA astronaut Anne McClain, according to the US Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of Texas. Worden, a former Air Force intelligence officer, and her astronaut wife have been locked since 2018 in a divorce that has involved a nasty custody battle. Last year, Worden filed...

    The unprecedented global pandemic that knows no borders should be a clear lesson for all of us of how interconnected and interdependent we all are, as a human community, and how small our already frail planet has become in the era of globalization. Diversity & Inclusion would like to salute all of you—administrators, faculty, staff, and of course, our students—for your resilience and strength, whether at the frontlines, physically or virtually, in services and in the classroom. We also want to remind ourselves that as in all human experiences, the pandemic has not impacted all communities equally. Many communities are...

    The National Association of Scholars (NAS) has produced a report titled "Social Justice Education in America." Written by David Randall, it defines, describes, and delineates many of the destructive and deceptive ideas behind the innocent-sounding social justice programs that have mushroomed in American institutions of higher learning. According to this December 2019 report, "in the last twenty years, a generation of academics and administrators has transformed higher education into an engine of progressive political advocacy." Identity politics plays a major role in how social justice will be administered. Social justice activists work to increase the "state's coercive power" to decide...

Pelosi released her plan as critics questioned the priorities of Democratic lawmakers facing the China-caused pandemic. Senate Democrats voted Sunday to block a coronavirus stimulus package worth up to $1.8 trillion, and continued voting down procedural motions on the bill Monday. Democrats in the upper chamber were reportedly upset that the legislation does not do...
