Google employees demand Larry Page address walkout and retaliation

Google employees are still going strong and not letting up on their demands. Following a sit-in protesting retaliation last month, Googlers are making four demands. “Google seems to have lost its mooring, and trust between workers and the company is deeply broken,” Google walkout organizers wrote on Medium today. “As the company progresses from crisis to crisis, it is clear Google management is failing, along with HR.

Search Engines Deliver Biased Results. Pantene Is Changing That.

Look up "greatest writers" on Google, and you get a sea of dead white men staring back at you. Same goes for "famous comedians," "best movie directors," and "greatest leaders." The images generated by a search for "perfect hair" all reflect white women sporting straight styles. "School girl" yields photos of sexualized Halloween costumes instead of girls raising their hands in science class.Bias is rampant everywhere — including in search engine results. The search algorithm seeks to provide re...

The Fundamentals of Tomorrow’s Leadership, the Basics with a Twist

Guest post from Fiona Murden: In 1998 I graduated from business school feeling I knew all there was to know about leadership. I began work as a management consultant and much of what I’d learnt was very quickly thrown out of the window. The basics of behaviour tell us far more than the latest fad. I became obsessed with observing like a detective, working out what, why and how. In fact, I was so fascinated that I soon returned to university to complete an MSc in Business Psychology...

During those conversations, Carlson diminished the actions of Warren Jeffs, then on the FBI’s ...

Why Do Entrepreneurs Need to Make Health & Wellness a Priority?

By Dr. Sean Daneshmand Have you noticed how balanced and grounded successful people are? I don’t mean that guy you know that drops stacks of cash at the casino and rides around in a sports car – I mean really successful people, like Billionaire successful. What sets these people apart is not how much they spend or how much partying they do, in fact, when you look at it more closely, it’s more interesting that they have the money but don’t really have the urge to indulge all the time.
