Comment on Discrimination in recruitment. Not only good – essential! by Pavel

first_img Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos. Comments are closed. Thanks for sharing, James. I agree that these are more gneeric stats and also stats that I would expect, as most text messages (as of now) come from personal contacts. On the other hand, e-mails flood the inbox, making it less likely overall that your message will be opened.If targeted properly, I would hope that the read rate would be higher for those recruitment e-mails, but I believe there are going to be several other factors that contribute to that number (active vs. passive job seeker, number of e-mails received overall, etc ). If recruiters/recruitment marketers do jump on the SMS train, I hope they would be cautious as to frequency and type of message so as not to turn users off from the channel completely.All-in-all, I think the message is that there are new options out there for reaching candidates. However, as with any channel, you must use it wisely.ARead full article Comment on Discrimination in recruitment.

Ghost Light, Featuring Tom Hamilton & Holly Bowling, Makes East Coast Debut In Brooklyn [Photos/Video]

first_imgLoad remaining images On Wednesday evening, Ghost Light, the new project featuring Tom Hamilton, Holly Bowling, Steve Lyons, Raina Mullen, and Scotty Zwang, made their highly anticipated East Coast debut at Brooklyn Bowl with support from Colorado jam quartet Magic Beans. Hamilton, in particular, is no stranger to the Brooklyn, NY venue, having played there dozens of times with Joe Russo’s Almost Dead and other acts. That comfort with the room coupled with the excitement each of the players clearly feels toward this new project was readily apparent throughout the show.EXCLUSIVE: Tom Hamilton & Holly Bowling Talk New Band, Ghost Light, & The Grateful DeadGhost Light’s two-set headlining show was excitedly received by a particularly eager Wednesday crowd, as the band worked through various composed pieces (both instrumental and with vocals) as well as deep, exploratory stretches of improv. They even threw in a cover of The Grateful Dead‘s “Jack Straw” as the encore for good measure. Watch the cover below:Ghost Light – “Jack Straw” (Grateful Dead cover)[Video: Stand For Jam]While Hamilton (lead guitar) predominantly led the charge, each of the band’s talented members had their moments to shine. Both Bowling (keys) and Mullen (rhythm guitar) offered multiple “wow” moments, and the rock-solid rhythm section of Zwang (drums) and Lyons (bass) provided a sturdy foundation all evening.From here, Ghost Light begins an East Coast run that will last through next weekend before heading back out on the road again in May. They will also perform at large-scale festivals like LOCKN’, The Peach Music Festival, and more this summer. You can a list of Ghost Light’s upcoming April and May dates below.

Saint Mary’s dining hall introduces new composting initiative

first_imgSaint Mary’s students may have noticed new yellow bins next to the tray return area in the dining hall. These bins are part of a new composting initiative that encourages students to dump their biodegradable waste in them so it can be composted rather than thrown in the trash.Senior and composting coordinator Katie Frego said this is not the first time composting has been tried on campus.“We have had composting in the past, but very [briefly],” she said. “Someone had made a compost bin last year, but the bin filled up so fast and there was nowhere else to put the compost.”When the College purchased an acre of farmland from the Sisters of the Holy Cross this past spring, however, Frego said she saw an opportunity to bring back composting.“That was the turning point for composting to truly begin,” she said. “Because we finally had an area where we could dump the compost and not have to worry about running out of space or the smell or anything like that.”The composting initiative is student driven. Sodexo, the College’s dining service, just gives the space for the composting bins, general manager of dining services Ken Acosta said.“We promote it and say let’s go, let’s do it as long as it is student-driven,” he said.Frego said she became involved with the project because of her passion for sustainability and her connections across campus.“I’ve always been very passionate about the environment, and I’ve been working in the dining hall since freshman year,” she said. “And through that, I’ve been able to see the amount of waste that is generated by the dining hall just in one day. As a biology major, having connections with professors in the biology department and also knowing the managers in the dining hall, it was no brainer for me. I hate seeing all this waste that could be composted and used for making new soil just thrown in the trash.”Frego believes that composting is important so that Earth is preserved for future generations, she said.“It is beneficial because we know that climate change does exist, our responsibility as students in college nowadays — and especially living in a country like the United States where we are so thankful for the blessings it gives us — that I think it is our responsibility to do our part in helping the Earth and making it more sustainable for future generations,” she said. “We are able to enjoy the beauty of this Earth, but if we don’t respect it and take care it, then generations down the road may not have the same opportunity that we do.”The composting system has only been implemented for a couple of weeks, but Frego said the results so far have been great.“In the first week we saved over 500 pounds of waste,” she said. “After the second week we were over 500 pounds again. The student body has been really receptive to it. Everyone has been really impressed with how smooth this process is going so far.”Even with the great results, however, there still have been some challenges in educating the student body, Frego said.“The toughest challenge is still educating the students on what can be thrown in the bins and what can’t be thrown in the bins,” she said. “Even spreading awareness that composting is now happening on [the] Saint Mary’s campus. The toughest challenge is how to communicate to the students that we are composting and this is a daily thing that will be happening for the rest of the year.” Ultimately, Frego just wants to get the message across that the small action of composting can have an impact.“I really want to get this message across to Saint Mary’s students that throwing away those three watermelon rinds that you would have put in the trash really, actually, truly makes a difference,” she said.Tags: composting, dining, Saint Mary’s dining hall, sustainabilitylast_img read more

Saint Mary’s workshop addresses sexual harassment in the workplace

first_imgFueled by the mindset that a Saint Mary’s education cultivates exceptional leaders equipped with the knowledge to pinpoint and respond to injustice, the College hosted a workshop addressing sexual harassment in the workplace in Stapleton Lounge on Tuesday. Photo courtesy of Kara Kelly Chair of the department of English, Laura Haigwood, discusses sexual harassment and its impact on marginalized communities during a workshop held Tuesday in Stapleton Lounge.Chair of the English department, Laura Haigwood, who moderated a panel discussion preceding the workshop, said the College aims to prepare students to encounter harsh social realities.“This workshop is the brainchild of President Jan Cervelli, who wants to ensure all Belles have a toolkit for responding appropriately and effectively to sexual harassment, should it happen that you personally experience it,” Haigwood said.Treating men and women with equal respect in professional spaces demonstrates respect for basic human dignity, special assistant to Cervelli, Kara Kelly, said.“We are in a crucial moment in our culture, galvanized by the courageous #MeToo movement to address an issue that has, for too long, been willfully ignored — no more,” Kelly said. “Courageous women with much to lose, and many who have lost much for their resistance to this kind of abuse, have awakened us. We owe it to them, and to all who are part of our College, to root out this problem once and for all and to entrench the workplace quality that we all value.”Kelly said the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) reports that 75 percent of female employees have experienced sexual harassment.“That’s a staggering figure that should give all of us pause,” Kelly said. “For too many women, it rings all too true. Perhaps even more telling about the workplace culture in our country, the EEOC also reports that 90 percent of those who have experienced harassment never take formal action. It’s time to change such a chilling climate.”Navigating instances of sexual harassment can be difficult when the term itself is prone to varying interpretations, Saint Mary’s Title IX coordinator, Kris Urschel, said.“The formal definition is one thing, and we keep that … front and center at all times,” Urschel said. “I think it does warrant a little bit more conversation in terms of ‘What does that truly mean?’ and ‘What does that possibly look like in the workplace?’”Sexual harassment can prevent employees from fulfilling their assigned tasks and from producing the best quality of work, as they may struggle to feel accepted and valued as a working professional, Urschel said. “[Sexual harassment] … interferes with what we refer to as creating an intimidating or hostile work environment,” she said. Professor of history Jamie Wagman said up to 30 percent of college-aged women and up to 70 percent of women in the workplace have been sexually harassed, and their experiences can result in negative self-perceptions, denial of employment opportunities and threats to their physical safety.“Some states have enforced state and local-level legal protections against sexual harassment targeted at LGBTQ people, but currently 30 states have no protection,” Wagman said. “Also, transgender people are especially prone to job discrimination and sexual harassment, and they have little to no recourse.”The field of critical race feminism may serve as a helpful lens through which to view this issue, for it emphasizes the intersectionality of various forces at play, Wagman said. “Racialized sexual harassment calls upon sexual stereotypes of minority women, and this harassment is present across a variety of institutions and is associated with great post-traumatic stress syndrome,” Wagman said. “As Anita Hill wrote in ‘Speaking Truth to Power,’ sexual harassment is underreported. Only three percent of instances culminate in formal complaints.”Unwelcome or threatening behaviors disproportionately impact marginalized populations, such as women of color and individuals of a low socioeconomic class, Haigwood said.“There’s already been lots of discussion in relation to the ‘Me Too’ movement about the situation of women in food services and hospitality services who are, for a number of reasons, more vulnerable and less able to speak out than women who are comparatively more privileged,” Haigwood said. A work environment in which conditions of employment depend on sexual favors, physical acts or verbal requests for or innuendos to such acts perpetrates sexual harassment, Wagman said. “[Sexual harassment] can be verbal or physical,” she said. “It also can be non-verbal. Sexual harassment can occur in the workplace or in a learning environment, [such as in] a school or university. It can happen in many different scenarios, including after-hours conversations, exchanges in the hallways, non-office settings of employers or peers.”S-O-S Coordinator at the Family Justice Center of St. Joseph County Amelia Thomas said individuals who have experienced unwanted sexual comments or advances have the agency to decide that they were sexually harassed.“It doesn’t matter if someone means it in a joking manner,” Thomas said. “It’s up to victim to decide what is or is not okay. … Be cognizant of the fact that [sexual harassment] is not based on the person’s intent.”One major misconception surrounding sexual harassment involves the affected populations, Thomas said. “Harassment does not always have to be directed at a specific individual,” she said. “It can be something when you’re looking at groups, whether that’s gender or race or LGBTQ. … You can still make a report even if you’re not the direct victim. If you’re witnessing [behavior] that is offensive to you … you can still make a report, and that is considered sexual harassment.”Tags: EEOC, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Kris Urschel, Sexual harassment, Title IXlast_img read more
