Winds of Change magazine introduced their first annual list of the “Top 50 Best STEM Workplaces” for Native Americans and Alaska Natives. The list celebrates companies that support diversity in the workplace and especially for Native American STEM professionals. Companies included in the Winds of Change list of the “Top 50 Best STEM Workplaces” meet certain criteria established solely by the Winds of Change editorial staff. Selected companies completed surveys designed to demonstrate their overall diversity recruitment efforts and/or were included within the past year in at least one published list from two different sources that recognize top firms dedicated to diversity recruiting. In addition, selected companies must also be actively recruiting for occupations within STEM fields and have specifically recruited Native American and Alaska Natives within the past two years. GE came in 18th.
NSF Joins Forces with #Intel and GE to Move the Needle in Producing U.S. #Engineers and #Computer #Scientists
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has partnered with Intel and GE to change the status quo through a targeted set of grants whose projects take creative approaches in engaging and retaining undergraduates in engineering and computer science. Both fields are dynamic, encompassing areas of focus that didn’t even exist a couple of decades ago–from green energy and advanced robotics to cybersecurity. Engineering and computer science also offer good careers with salaries that can make a life-changing difference, especially to first-generation college students and their families.
GE took its first stab at hosting a live Q&A on Reddit’s famed IAmA forum (read: I am a digital media expert, ask me anything, for example) beginning TODAY at 2pm EST. The IAmA forum reaches hundreds of thousands of readers daily and has featured the likes of President Obama and Bill Gates to Snoop Dogg aka Snoop Lion and Louis C.K. The IAmA will feature Jim Bray (GE’s chief scientist) as well as other GE researchers fielding questions from the Reddit community about the future of electricity. You can participate in this groundbreaking, real-time exchange where you can ask anything from “why did the lights go out at the Super Bowl?” to “when will all cars be powered by electricity?” and so on. Log on to Reddit (http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/) and look for the IAmA that reads “We are the team of researchers and scientists at GE working on the ‘Future of Electricity.’ Ask Us Anything.” Join the conversation and ask away!
