Gender gap

Lean In and McKinsey just released their fifth annual Women in the Workplace study.

Equal pay

Intel has been investing heavily in D&I programs for the last few years and confirmed that they have reached gender pay parity across the world and pay parity by ethnicity and race in the US. They have now announced that they will publicly share the employee pay data, which will hopefully result in other corporates doing the same.


In the US alone, there are over 90,000 people with dwarfism – and they often experience discrimination at school and in the workplace. Interesting video from Cara Reedy, sharing what it means to live with dwarfism.
