Millennials – A ‘Rue Rant’

I sure hope the tone of the following doesn’t upset you, but all this talk about Millennials is making me sick.

Every time I turn around, there’s some poll, survey, report, study, or whatever addressing the unique concerns of Millennials in the workplace. Look.

The Dilemma of Bias in Leadership

As a social worker and after participating in the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI) /Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) internship program, I have become more aware of the work that goes into making a difference for the people we care for.
