Is diversity training even worth fighting for?  

LEARN THIS

Our research suggests that a small number of systemic changes — targeted recruitment, mentoring programs, open skill and management training, and diversity task forces — can lead to significant and persistent increases in workforce diversity and opportunity. This is true for both frontline and managerial jobs. As a means of promoting equity, diversity training is still worth fighting for — but, as our research makes clear, only when coupled with these systemic changes. It’s time to put them into place in every workplace.”

CURIOUS FACT

Feeling hot, hot hot!

ABSORB THIS
Did you know there’s a strict and definitive scale for ranking the chilli hotness?! It’s called the Scoville scale after a pharmacist called Wilbur Scoville. The more mild bell peppers are around 1-100 SHU (Scoville Heat Units) which is the lower side of the scale, while hotter peppers like cayenne are more like 30,000 – 50,000 SHU. The spiciest pepper known to man is called the Carolina Reaper, which can reach up to 2.2 million SHU!
You may have heard of the YouTube channel Hot Ones. Natalie Portman reps the vegans while talking about her work on the Eating Animals documentary based on the popular book by Jonathan Safran Foer…and she barely breaks a sweat! Another outstanding performance.

MOVING BODIES

Lewis Hamilton

CATCH THIS

Lewis Hamilton, the world’s 10th highest-paid athlete, is spending all that money on tofu. Talking to the BBC about his recent transition to a vegan diet, Hamilton said: “As the human race, what we are doing to the world… the pollution [in terms of emissions of global-warming gases] coming from the number of cows that are being produced is incredible. They say it is more than what we produce with our flights and our cars, which is kind of crazy to think. The cruelty is horrible and I don’t necessarily want to support that.”
