The impact companies make on our planet draws my attention to corporate sustainability efforts, particularly ongoing sustainability commitments in practice by tech leaders.
Ahead of Earth Day, I asked Mary Ann Yule, President, and CEO of HP Canada, to elaborate on how HP Canada plays its part in the circular economy and to share some information about its sustainability initiatives.
CIO Ron Guerrier is working to diversify IT’s suppliers and boost the benefits they get from working with HP to build a more representative technology workforce.
HP CIO Ron Guerrier says the company’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion is one of the factors that brought him to the company in September 2020.
Even so, Guerrier believed that as its new CIO he could advance, even further, the company’s DEI efforts in the IT space, where Blacks in particular remain underrepresented. More specifically, Guerrier has set out to make his own IT department look more like society.
Working from home doesn’t have to mean sitting more and moving less.
By Deborah Lynn Blumberg
After pivoting to working from home in March 2020, environmental scientist Jill Trescott of Randolph, Minnesota, was thrilled with the extra time she gained from dropping her commute. But soon, she found herself missing the steps she took from the parking lot to her desk, coffee breaks, and walks to team meetings. She just wasn’t moving as much as she used to.
“I realized I was often coming out of my home office at the end of the day having barely moved all day,” she says. “My new work days had a lot less built-in walking.”
Every year we dedicate the month of March to celebrating women’s contributions to society and culture. While women have shattered many ceilings over time, those gains have not been equal for all women. Take the Suffrage Movement for example: Ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution allowed white women to vote in 1920, but it took another 45 years before Black women were able to vote. A considerable gap remains not only between women and men, but between women of color and their white counterparts as well.
Historically, the positioning of technology and expertise has been an antithesis to women and girls and this is even worse felt in low and middle income communities.
Low and middle income countries face an existential crisis. As the world moves to a digital economy, they face an obstacle: the lack of qualified manpower to fill critical information and communication technology (ICT) positions, a problem that is exacerbated by the low representation of women in these fields.
The pandemic has changed the way we live and work, and women in particular have been disproportionally affected by the global shift. In spring 2020, approximately 3.5 million mothers with school-age children lost jobs or left the workforce in the U.S. Although jobs have returned, there are 1.1 million fewer women in the workforce than in February 2020.
