Understanding white privilege : creating pathways to authentic relationships...

Friday, 24 March, 2017

@TitleKnowingly and unknowingly we all grapple with race every day. Understanding White Privilege delves into the complex interplay between race, power, and privilege in both organizations and private life. It offers an unflinching look at how ignorance can perpetuate privilege, and offers practical and thoughtful insights into how people of all races can work to break this cycle. Based on thirty years of work in diversity and colleges, universities, and corporations, Frances Kendall candidly invites readers to think personally about how race ― theirs and others’ ― frames experiences and relationships, focusing squarely on white privilege and its implications for building authentic relationships across race.

How four innovators use nature as inspiration

Friday, March 24, 2017

When the Earth is the focal point of your work, it’s inevitable that the subtle details and nuances of the planet will make their way into your research and influence the direction of the outcome. Nature influences science in myriad different ways, from a plant’s barb leading to the creation of Velcro, to a bird’s wings inspiring the design of the airplane. Nature has proven time and time again to be the gold standard in innovation, allowing engineers, designers and researchers to bypass the roadblocks in their way and create something that’s extraordinary in its ties to the natural world.
