Good article that talks about the differences in attitudes between generations when it comes to diversity in the workplace.  

Basically, based on survey results, boomers and gen-Xers think workplace diversity is "the right thing to do to achieve compliance and equality, regardless of whether it benefits the business." 

Millennials go beyond that. They define diversity as "the blending of different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives within a team." That is, diversity isn't just important for its own sake, it's important because it leads to 'cognitive diversity' (i.e. diversity of thought). And this cognitive diversity is essential to "overcome challenges and achieve business goals." 

So they don't just want to have diversity, they want to use it do a better job. And they're currently feeling constrained because, in many organisations, they have to be a little less diverse (they're required to conform more than they'd like) and, therefore, they're less authentic at work and less creative at their jobs.
Diversity and inclusion are more than just buzzwords or boxes to check. Millennials believe they are essential to business success.

"Instead of resistance, we now have activities that were once held up as archetypes of women’s subordinate status being presented as liberating personal choices. Sexual harassment has been reframed as harmless banter that women can enjoy. Marriage is reconstructed as a pro-feminist love-in.

"Labiaplasty is seen as helpful cosmetic enhancement. Pornography is rebranded as sexual emancipation. Objectification is the new empowerment."
Feminism is back in fashion – and this time, it's all abut choice. But does more choice really equal more freedom? And are all women free to make the same choices?

"Even if you think you would never, ever, not in a million years, discriminate on the basis of gender, double check what you're doing. What you think is right may not be fair."

"Rousey is nightmare fuel for any woman who steps into the cage without having adequately prepared for her. And none of them have adequately prepared for her. Sometimes they know that walking in, and it is written all over their faces. Sometimes it is made abundantly clear as soon as the bell rings. Their carefully laid plans — keep her on her feet, stuff her takedowns, defend against the Arm Bar of Death — evaporate with one perfectly crafted hip toss. And then, in the words of ring-side announcer Mike Goldberg, “it’s all over!”"

"Finally. Earlier this month, Dove finally got widely called out by women over their insidious “Real Beauty” ad campaign.

"For over 10 years now, the personal care brand — behind a veneer of “empowerment” — has passive-aggressively assaulted women’s physical insecurities to sell beauty products."

"The way it works is simple: fill out your employer’s name and location and whether you are a current or former employee (there is also a designation for part time or other), then click on the stars to rate the company on its policies in 14 areas such as flexible work hours, maternity and adoptive leave, family growth support (including child care and lactation rooms), equal opportunities, and female representation in leadership positions. There is an option to leave a detailed comment that is also anonymous. While many of the areas apply to women's representation and access at work, the rating system is open to both men and women to review their company's policies."

"When did the press become so utterly inundated with jaded white males, railing against their own fading relevance by lashing out at younger musicians?"
Why do Gallagher and other older male rock singers have such a problem with a younger generation doing things differently?

We got locked out of our apartment at night (around 9pm) and Justin arrived in about half an hour to drill the lock out and replace its inner cylinder. Our job was originally assigned to Sean, who was on another job at the time. However, when Justin discovered Sean's other job was going to take a while, he came over himself. He was friendly and efficient and really saved the day. I would highly recommend Top Locksmith.
