D&I Weekly News Round Up: Girls in STEM, Inclusion and more
Welcome to the latest edition of our Diversity & Inclusion News Round Up. Today we are talking about yet another report why companies should hire more women, how multinationals can offer LGBTQ inclusive environments, the inspiring story of Haben Girma and a very interested TEDx talk about Girls in STEM.
We already know this - but another report (this time from Morgan Stanley) is showing that companies that employ more women outperform their male-dominated competitors. Read more here.
Offering an LGBTQ inclusive environment is not always easy for international companies, especially when it might conflict with local laws. A team from NYU School of Law worked with various multinationals to understand what can be done to make a positive change.
Girls in STEM
Very interesting TEDx talk from Sharmi Albrechtsen, the CEO of SmartGurlz. The edu-tech startup is trying to make STEM more accessible for girls and has developed a coding robot.
