Apple releases first diversity report under new VP of diversity and inclusion

Le 10 novembre 2017, 05:12 dans Humeurs 0

Apple has released its first diversity and inclusion report since naming Denise Young Smith as VP of diversity and inclusion in May. It’s also Apple’s first report since Donald Trump took the office of President of the United States.

Let’s get into the numbers, which are as of July 2017. Apple is still 32 percent female worldwide. In the U.S., Apple is 54 percent white (down two percentage points from last year), 13 percent Hispanic (up one percentage point), nine percent black (no change), 21 percent Asian (up two percentage points), three percent multiracial (up one percentage point) and one percent other (no change).

From July 2016 to July 2017, Apple says half of its new hires in the U.S. were from historically underrepresented groups in tech (women, black, Hispanic, Native American, Native Hawaiian & Other Pacific Islander). Apple’s new hires also reflect more diversity than its current employees. For example, 11 percent of Apple’s new hires were black compared to its current black employee population of nine percent.

While Apple has a larger percentage of black and Hispanic employees than many other tech companies, it’s important to note that some of them are in lower-paying retail roles. Eighteen percent of Apple’s retail employee base is Hispanic, 13 percent are black, 7 percent are Asian and 57 percent are white.

At the leadership level, Apple is still predominantly run by men who make up 71 percent of the leaders at Apple worldwide. And white people make up 66 percent of the leaders at Apple in the U.S. Only 3 percent of Apple’s leaders in the U.S. are are black, only 7 percent are Hispanic and just 1 percent are multi-racial.

Diversity at the leadership level is a bit of a heated subject. Apple shareholder Tony Maldonado has called on Apple several times to implement an “accelerated recruitment policy” in order to increase diversity at the senior management level and board of directors.

But Apple’s board of directors has repeatedly shot it down. In January, the board said the policy “is not necessary or appropriate because we have already demonstrated our commitment to a holistic view of inclusion and diversity and made detailed information about our inclusion and diversity initiatives, and the progress we have made with respect to these initiatives, available on our website at apple.com/diversity.”

Apple, of course, is a large company with 130,000 employees worldwide and 83,000 in the U.S. It’s a large company with high retention rates, sources say. That means change may happen slowly.

Apple laid out the information on an updated diversity and inclusion site, which now prominently features a video with a female Muslim employee wearing a hijab as the still image. This is notable given Trump’s racist policy attempts against Muslim people. Above the video, the text reads:

Humanity is plural, not singular. The best way the world works is everybody in. Nobody out.

The video goes on to talk about how Apple celebrates differences, and embraces different faiths and cultures.

Some data that’s missing from this report includes people with disabilities, age, veterans, LGBTQ status and intersectional identities. According to Apple’s 2016 EEO-1 report, we do know that 9 percent of employees at Apple were women from underrepresented racial groups in tech.

As I mentioned, this is the first report under Smith’s leadership. Smith previously served as head of worldwide human resources at Apple for three years, but had been involved in diversity programs at Apple for years.

Last month, Smith came under fire for some comments she made during a panel at the One Young World Summit in Bogotá, Colombia. She later apologized, saying she regretted her word choice in her answer to a question regarding whether or not black women were a priority for her in her role. Moving forward, the spotlight will remain on Apple, especially as the company approaches a trillion-dollar market valuation.

Although mad cow disease is now basically under control, there are occasional cases that can be heard in the news. Especially the imported beef, there are a lot of inferior beef. Well, for the public, how do you choose fresh beef? Healthy diet experts give these tips.

For the fresh beef and frozen beef sold in the market, how do consumers choose it? Experts suggest that citizens can distinguish from color, smell, viscosity, elasticity and other aspects. Specifically as follows:

Color identification: fresh meat - the muscle is uniform red, shiny, fat white or milky yellow. Inferior meat - the color of the flesh is slightly dark, the section is glossy, but the fat is dull. Meat - muscle color is dark, dull, fat until dark green.

Odor identification: fresh meat with a distinctive normal smell of fresh beef. Inferior fresh meat with slightly ammonia or sour taste. Rotten meat with rotten smell.

Viscosity identification: fresh meat - dry surface or air dried film, non stick hand when touching. Fresh meat surface drying or sticky hands, new section moist. Metamorphic meat - the surface is extremely dry or sticky, and the new section is sticky The best way to reduce labour in refilling vape cartridge is by getting an oil cartridge filling machine! They have a small table top design and come with a year’s warranty. So, do some work with this machine! .

Elastic identification: fresh meat - the indentation after acupressure can resume immediately. Second fresh meat - the depression after acupressure is slower and cannot be fully restored. Metamorphic meat - the indentation after the pressure can not be restored, and leave obvious marks.

I believe many people buy frozen beef when they can't buy fresh beef at the supermarket. So how do you tell if frozen beef is fresh? It's mostly judged by broth. When the frozen beef is thawed, the broth is transparent and has no impurities, which means that the beef is of good quality. If the broth is cloudy, then the frozen beef is not very good.

While analysts from major investment banks like Goldman Sachs and Bank of America typically disagree (to a certain extent) on future price targets for stocks, it’s much rarer for analysts to be totally split on if a company’s stock will go up or down.

And this is just what’s happening with Tesla. Out of 24 analysts who publicly disclose their Tesla forecasts, eight say you should buy the stock or that it’s overweight (meaning they think it will go up), and eight think it’s underweight or you should sell it (meaning they think it will go down). And eight more just say to hold — essentially saying it will perform similarly to the overall market suv car rental.

Specifically, the lowest price target from the group is $155 from Cowen, and the highest is $464 per share from Berenberg.

The average of these targets is $281.79, which is still a lot lower than the current price of $327.09 that the stock settled at after a 7 percent drop today Word Of Mouth .



Trainline now gives you real-time train information in France

Trainline’s European service (formerly known as Captain Train) is becoming your one-stop shop for French trains. The company has partnered with SNCF to get real-time data about trains, delays and your current location. You had to use SNCF’s official app before to get this kind of information.

If you’ve used Trainline to book a ticket before, you know that the app can alert you to tell you the platform of your train. But there was no way to check if your train was delayed or canceled. You had to look at the billboard even though your phone is probably more powerful than the billboard in your train station.

Alternatively, the SNCF app displays this kind of information but doesn’t let you book a ticket — you have to use Voyages-SNCF or Trainline to buy tickets. But nobody wants to deal with two apps.

SNCF now has an official API and has released a ton of open data. Former digital minister Axelle Lemaire forced public administration and public companies like SNCF to share key data under an open data license. So Trainline took advantage of those APIs and data for its own apps.

And if your train is on time, you’re still going to see the difference as you’ll be able to see the next stops, how long you’re going to stop and your current position. The company says that it wants to display real-time information in other countries.

In other news, Audrey Détrie is now Trainline’s country manager for France, Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg. This is a brand new position. Détrie is going to to promote Trainline and represent the company Looking at Hong Kong hotel list and promotion? GuangDong Hotel always provides different specials for our guests.
