To find leaders who were at the forefront of the diversity movement, we first identified companies with reputations for successfully leveraging diversity. We then assessed their progress at creating inclusive cultures by examining, where available, employment statistics, leadership attitudes, and thirdparty recognition. (Information pertaining to employment statistics and third-party recognition was collected using public sources.

Leadership attitudes were assessed on the basis of public sources, published interviews, and involvement in diversity initiatives.) We also took cultural differences into account.

For example, 6% of the Japanese automaker Nissan’s management is female, a ratio that sounds dismal from a U.S. citizen’s vantage point.

But the Japanese national average for female representation in management is 2%; Nissan is actually significantly ahead of the curve.

After identifying these companies, we selected CEOs to participate in interviews as part of an exploratory study. We wanted them to represent different industries and regions, as well as different stages of inclusivity. For

Business leaders send a powerful message when they demonstrate a commitment to diversity and inclusion that goes beyond rhetoric. But how does diversity make its way to the top of a CEOs agenda?

To fnd out, we interviewed 24 CEOs from around the globe who ran companies and corporate divisions that had earned reputations for embracing people from all kinds of backgrounds. These executives represented a wide range of industries and regions, as well as diferent stages on the journey to creating an inclusive culture. Our goal was to understand not only why they had made diversity a strategic priority but also how they executed on their goals and what that meant to the organization and its practices.

The CEOs we spoke with did not see diversity as a once-and-done initiative, nor did

Biodiversity of 65% of the world's rivers threatened

Under the threat of extinction is not only a lot of terrestrial species of living organisms, but also water, including river.

Construction of dams and hydropower plants, industrial discharges, runoff from agricultural land, invasion of alien organisms — all this has led to the fact that 65% of the species diversity of the world's rivers is under threat. Such a sad conclusion researchers at New York University as a result of an attempted to quantify the impact of 23 negative factors affecting the species diversity of aquatic river (See map below).

Reduced biodiversity of river ecosystems is reflected in

September 4. Paleontologists have found that global warming has a positive effect on species diversity. Article (at the time of this writing, it has not been posted on the Internet) appeared in the scientific journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, and its summary leads Nature News.

In the study, researchers analyzed data on the diversity of the biosphere over the past 540 million years. As a result, it was found that the temperature peaks coincide with an increase in biodiversity. The researchers say that their results apply to the present

Attenbro Madagascar and the giant egg watch online

David Attenborough presents a series of documentary films bewitches the nature of which tell of the abundance of the species composition of the island Madagascar. Because of the remoteness of their own from the African continent, Madagascar remains unexplored for many years, and its isolation from the people allow him to become a hotbed of evolution. This series examines the abundance of animals and plants that are indigenous to Madagascar, is also a prerequisite for which Madagascar so different from everything else on the planet.
