Gender

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.

LGBTQ

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.

Inclusion

I am sure you remember Haben Girma, one of the stars in our 5G spot. Haben, Harvard Law’s first Deafblind graduate, published a book last week, sharing her life story. Watch the interview.

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.
