Everywhere you turn lately, you seem to come across another article on diversity (including this one which might just piss you off). It's interesting to see companies highlight their programs to the media in an effort to save face. Unfortunately, the inefficiencies of their diversity programs and the…Continue
I recently shared data on gender diversity in STEM (science, tech, engineering, and mathematics) jobs. This time, I'm examining ethnic diversity for these fields. How ethnically diverse is US's STEM candidate supply? Below are the percentages of qualified people in the US workforce for each STEM field, broken down by ethnicity.

I was reading a trade industry article online and came across a question from another recruiter, I thought the question would spark a robust yet healthy dialogue. I would love to get your thoughts, read on….
Dear Staffing: Dude Dressed Like A Lady, Now What?!

“I never, I repeat, NEVER thought that I would come across this issue in all my years of staffing but here I am and I haven’t the slightest what to do about it. I always told myself that it would not…Continue
Recently when I presented the “Secrets of a Successful Job Search” at the University of Utah, I asked the participants “How many of you feel you have been discriminated because of your age?” About a third of the people raised their hands.
When you read about diversity recruitment most people discuss systems and solutions but I have yet to see anyone discuss the root problem. Possibly the reason that you do not see the root cause is that most people who write on the subject are outside…Continue
Its a typical Monday morning. The staff comes in to work in the usual fashion. The beginning of the workweek yet again, however, something is different. Over the past couple of years, sales have been "OK" but you have seen better years in the past. You have shrugged it off and blamed it on the bad economy. Yes, it must be the economy.
