Promote diversity in science
2020 is a crucial year for science. Every day, we unlock new evidence that reshapes how we think about humanity, our world, and the universe itself. At the same time, we face new global challenges - including public health crises, plastic pollution, and the increasingly alarming reality of climate change - that will shape our future prospects as a society. We need strong voices like yours to ensure that the message of science and empirical evidence stands out from the crowd. You can seize the moment and become a AAAS member. When you do, you help AAAS: to collaborate with dozens of scientific societies to urge Congress to reject policies that disregard science, secure funding for critical research projects that benefit our society, inspire the next generation by placing retired scientists in K-12 classrooms across the nation and push for STEM education for all, especially in underserved communities.

10 Women Leaders In Finance Share What Is Required to Make the Industry More Gender-Balanced
In the past, Wall Street and finance used to be an all-white ''good ole boys club'' akin to Mad Men. This has changed in recent years and great progress has been made. Despite this progress, we still have a lot more work to do to achieve in terms of parity. According to a recent report, less than 17 percent of senior positions in investment banks are held by women. Authority Magazine recently ran a series called ''Meet The Female Leaders Of Finance.'' In the series we asked dozens of prominent women leaders in finance about the improvements in gender bias, so far, and what can be done to sustain this progress.

Intel offers detailed look into employee pay disparities
Intel recently released a report showing that white and Asian men dominate the top pay tiers of the company's workforce. And while the results aren't surprising, since they're largely typical of large Silicon Valley companies, the level of detail the chipmaker goes to in chronicling the pay disparity is. The chip giant found that in 2018, 29 of its top 52 executives, who all earn more than $208,000 a year, were white men. Asian men accounted for 11 of the positions, while there were eight white women in the top ranks. One black man, one black woman, one Hispanic woman and one Asian woman rounded out the list. This is the first year that the EEOC is requiring the same kind of pay data from all companies with more than 100 employees, though companies aren't required to publicly disclose that data. Previously, the EEOC required race and gender data, but not pay data. The pay gap is one of many diversity issues confronting companies in the tech industry. Silicon Valley has faced tough questions about the treatment of women and minorities, and the industry continues to struggle with recruitment, retention and promotion.
