The drive for diversity and inclusion in the space industry

More women and ethnic minorities are joining the space industry, but the drive for D&I is not over. Here we look at the steps already taken in the industry According to Tech Nation, only 19% of tech workers worldwide are women. Despite the rise of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives across a range of industries, there is an ongoing and significant gender disparity in tech companies.

In 2020 the Google Diversity Report stated that only 5.5% of new tech hires in the US were Black. That’s Google’s largest annual increase in Black representation yet, but there’s still so much more to do to improve diversity rates in tech.

On the other hand, leadership roles in the tech industry are highly international, with 18% of directors being non-British compared to 13% in non-tech sectors.


Accenture aims to achieve gender-balanced workforce by 2025

NEW DELHI: Global professional services company Accenture aims to achieve a gender-balanced workforce by 2025, with an equal representation of men and women in percentage terms. Currently, Accenture has 1,50,000 women, amounting to nearly 40 percent of its global workforce. "Diversity makes our business stronger and more innovative and, most important, it makes the world a better place," Accenture's chairman and CEO Pierre Nanterme said. Nanterme further noted that "with this new goal, we are sending an important message to our people and our clients confirming our commitment to a gender-balanced workforce."


Axios Latino: Tecnología para la inclusión

Los latinos con discapacidad suelen tener peor calidad de vida que otros grupos demográficos en Estados Unidos, un desequilibrio que se busca paliar con el desarrollo de nuevas tecnologías.

Por qué importa: Uno de cada seis adultos latinos en el país tiene una discapacidad. Conforme crece la población hispana, es probable que más gente necesite apoyo por este motivo.

Panorama general: Más de 5.4 millones de hispanos, el 9% de la población latina de cualquier edad en Estados Unidos, tiene alguna discapacidad.

Han surgido tecnologías y servicios para apoyar a esos latinos:

‣ Una app siendo desarrollada por una adolescente mexicana ayuda a quienes usan lenguaje de señas a comunicarse con mayor facilidad al traducirlo a texto o a voz, y viceversa.

Un servicio de video de relevo disponible en español y en inglés que provee interpretación al momento de lenguaje de señas, de la compañía Purple Communication, acaba de unir fuerzas con Meta para ofrecer sus servicios en aparatos de Facebook y para facilitar el acceso a la interpretación en videollamadas.

‣ La asociación sin fines de lucro World Institute on Disability tiene varias herramientas digitales, entre ellas la iniciativa bilingüe Proyecto Visión, con servicios de capacitación laboral para personas con discapacidad, consejos sobre manejar presupuestos y sobre cómo mantener los beneficios por discapacidad.


🔌 ATC Unplugged: "Transparency Sells Better Than Perfection"

A consumer research study changed my life. As it turns out, transparency sells better than perfection. And, due to the proliferation of reviews and feedback on everything we do, buy and experience, we now have to be transparent anyway. In this talk, we explore the science of how we, as humans, engage, prioritize, decide, and ultimately buy. We then dig into how to immediately apply those learnings to our messaging, positioning, and overall buying journey. In this one-part entertaining, two-parts head-slapping insights, and two-parts immediately actionable talk, your selling philosophy will become, as Tyra Banks calls it, “flawsome”!
