Secret Success of Women in STEM – Ariane Hegewisch, Inst for Women’s Policy Research

Secret Success of Women in STEM – Ariane Hegewisch, Inst for Women’s Policy Research

“The biggest problem with the official surveys that we rely on a lot… [by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, BLS], is that…the number of women isn’t plentiful enough yet to have enough data on an annual basis to come up with reliable estimates.” Ariane Hegewisch on Green Connections Radio.
There’s a little secret about the pandemic-economic recession that economists are not talking about much: that women in STEM jobs actually did pretty well. Why? Because STEM jobs are what economists call “professional” jobs and they have been in demand and therefore, not cut for the most part. Listen to Ariane Hegewisch, Program Director for Employment and Earnings at the Institute for Women’s Policy Research explain why and how women in STEM fields can benefit in this engaging conversation with Green Connections Radio host Joan Michelson.

Think About Your Goals For 2021 Differently

Think About Your Goals For 2021 Differently

This new year is an opportunity to take a whole new perspective on who you want to be in 2021, on your career, and how you want to spend the next 12 months.

To develop your 2021 goals, it may be tempting to just grab your 2020 goals, and update them, maybe changing a date or a title here and there. But I urge you to try another way this time, especially after all the upheaval of 2020, because it gave each of us an opportunity – even forced us – to reexamine our goals, plans, careers, perspectives, relationships and priorities.

9 Leadership Lessons From 2020, Per The World Economic Forum

The upheavals of 2020, triggered mostly but not only by the Covid-19 pandemic and the economic shutdown required to try to stop the spread of it, forced leaders to see their places in the economy and their organizations very differently, and to respond. Fast. In this new reality, almost none of the existing policies and practices applied, because they were too slow, irrelevant or ineffective. This tumultuous year also taught us of all – and especially the world’s leaders across sectors many of whom gathered virtually for the WEF 2021 for the first time – many lessons that we will need to both eliminate covid-19 and to emerge from it stronger and better. Here are 9 lessons leaders learned from 2020 and Covid-19, so far, as reflected in WEF 2021:
