In January, a learning smorgasbord

first_imgCasting bronze sculptures. Learning how networking can help in a job search, and how to answer interviewers’ questions. Participating in a workshop on X-ray and computed tomography (CT) imaging. For Ph.D. and master’s students at the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS), these are just a few of the activities on tap for January.For the third straight year, graduate students will be able to take part in January @ GSAS, a series of more than 80 workshops, seminars, and classes on topics ranging from how to write fellowship proposals, to using online citation tools when conducting research, to social events like film screenings and tours of Harvard museums.Running throughout the month, the classes will provide an opportunity for graduate students to catch up on professional development that they may not have had time for during the fall term, as well as a way to enrich their Harvard experience by exploring topics outside their normal areas of study.“Graduate students, for the most part, remain on campus throughout winter break,” said Garth McCavana, dean for student affairs in GSAS. “Especially if they’re in the sciences, they’re in the lab doing work or conducting their research. Several years ago, when the January session was created, we thought this would be a good time for our students to focus on professional development, so we developed a series of seminars — some with intellectual content, some with practical content, and some that are just purely for fun.”For students interested in professional development, GSAS has partnered with the Office of Career Services to offer programs, including sessions on making the transition to a non-academic career, expanding a professional network by using online social media tools, and surviving the academic job search — with advice from former students who have lived through these situations.Students also can build their research skills, with sessions that range from using online citation tools like EndNote and RefWorks, to using computers to model and analyze large data sets, to crafting qualitative research.Fun activities include the bronze sculpture workshop, film screenings, a nighttime session held at the Harvard College Observatory, and a ski trip to Sugarloaf Ski Resort in Maine.Undergraduates and faculty members also can take part in the events.First offered two years ago, a session titled “The Impostor Syndrome: How to Feel as Smart and Capable as Everyone Seems to Think You Are,” attracted more than 400 attendees.“We want students to use these sessions as an opportunity to see the array of options that are available to them,” McCavana said. “These sessions are an opportunity for students to come up for air, even if for just a few hours, and consider a topic they may not have thought about before.”last_img read more

Our team is laser focused on driving the best partner experience that fosters partner growth, pipeline and revenue.  We have been instrumental in building data driven results for optimized decision making.  I have been with the channel partner community for 18 years here at Dell EMC in Global Partner Marketing, holding numerous leadership positions across channel communications, partner campaigns, infrastructure, enablement and experience.What are your goals for your company’s channel business over the next year?Dell Technologies is all about transformation of business and advancing human progress – and our partners are in a prime position to deliver this transformation and make it real for our customers. We want to ensure they have an unstoppable advantage by understanding and leveraging the breadth of Dell Technologies and the scope of customer solutions they can bring.  We remain consistent and committed to delivering a simple, predictable and profitable partner experience.  From my own functional area – driving a strong ROI and being data driven about the success of our marketing investments is key to our joint success with our partners.Outside of your family, please name a woman you admire and why?I admire one of my lifelong friends, Mindy Gabler.

Finding herself after two horrific tragedies was clearly difficult.  Today, she finds strength in being a great mother, leading by example as a single, working Mom – who in her spare time founded and leads multiple charities for under-privileged children who otherwise would never have been able to experience summer camps.  She took her unfortunate experiences and turned them into beneficial positive life experiences for many others.What advice would you give to other women in the industry? Or men?Opportunities are endless – you’ll always have new areas to learn and achieve! Invest in learning new technologies and always making new connections. In this highly dynamic industry – it’s important to not just keep up with but drive change that progresses the business in new ways.

Weeknights and weekends, you’ll find me being active with these kids who keep me quite busy with swimming, basketball and soccer. I love to cook, garden, entertain, golf, shop, and travel when there’s any time to do so!Diane enjoys traveling with her children Tyler, Carter, and Natalie – most recently they ventured to Bryce, Grand & Zion Canyons.last_img read more

Archbishop addresses Notre Dame community on ‘moral imperative’ of anti-racism

first_imgArchbishop Wilton Gregory, of the Archdiocese of Washington, D.C., addressed the Notre Dame community virtually Aug. 21 in the inaugural lecture of this fall’s “Building an Anti-Racist Vocabulary” series, hosted by the Klau Center for Civil and Human Rights.In his lecture, “Anti-Racism as a Moral Imperative,” Gregory spoke to the 110 students enrolled in the course, as well as other students, faculty and alumni who tuned in. Klau Center associate director Dory Mitros Durham moderated the event and posed questions submitted by students to the archbishop.Gregory’s lecture laid out the history of Catholic leaders’ involvement and inaction in racial justice efforts. Church leaders’ stances on racial justice issues have not been uniformly positive, Gregory said.Bishops in the 19th century failed to voice support for the anti-slavery movement, Gregory said, and the consequences of that silence are clear in the demographics of the church today.“Who will ever know the numbers of African American Catholics we might have had if the Catholic Church had publicly and prominently and enthusiastically, jointly chosen to be identified with the anti-slavery movement?”By the late 20th century, Gregory said the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) had grown bolder in calling for racial justice.Gregory, who formerly served as president of the USCCB, commended U.S. bishops for their “increasingly direct and forceful” statements condemning racism. However, he said the Church has not done enough for its more than three million Black Catholics.“All too often the church in our country has been for many a white church, a racist institution,” Gregory said, quoting “Brothers and Sisters to Us,” the bishops’ 1979 pastoral letter.Gregory shared stories from the course of his ministry, describing the need to center the experiences of Black Catholics. One of only eight Black bishops in the U.S., he said he has witnessed the need for racial reconciliation in the Church time and again.As the first Black auxiliary bishop in Chicago’s history, Gregory was assigned to preside at the Catholic sacrament of Confirmation for children in predominantly Black parishes on the South Side, but he asked to confirm children across the diocese as well. Gregory told the story of one white parishioner who, after a Confirmation service, told him, “I was prepared not to like you, but my kids like you.”The experience shaped Gregory’s perspective on the importance of Black role models for all Catholics.“The need for African American bishops was clearly not limited to the African American community,” Gregory said. “It was for the life and the growth and the development of the whole church.”Now, Gregory believes it’s a crucial moment for Church leaders to speak out for racial justice. Pointing to current events, he said the U.S. is confronting two viruses at once: COVID-19 and racism.“[Racism] too destroys lives,” he said. “It destroys the lives of those who are hated — because of their race, their culture, their language, their legal status — and it destroys the lives of those who hate.”Gregory said the Church has an important role to play in combatting this virus of racism.“The brutal killing of Mr. Floyd has triggered something in this nation,” he said. “And I think it’s triggered something in the Church, too, that we need to be about this much more aggressively and much more consistently.”Gregory said he sees young people “on fire” for racial justice as a particular source of hope.“I bow to my young audience,” he said. “At this moment, because of their concern about racial injustice and racism, probably at a greater level of participation than we have experienced in the past. I’m hopeful. I really am very hopeful that the end result will be a step forward.”Gregory challenged his audience to look honestly at the Church’s legacy of racism, but he also called on listeners to respond with hope.“To turn a blind eye to the past is dangerous, but not to see the possibility of a hopeful future is even more dangerous,” Gregory said.Tags: Black lives matter, Church, george floyd, Racismlast_img read more

SOS: Broadway Revival of Titanic Postponed

first_img View Comments It hasn’t sunk entirely, but the previously announced Broadway revival of Maury Yeston and Peter Stone’s Tony-winning musical Titanic will no longer set sail this fall. The new production, under the direction of Thom Southerland, has been postponed due to the lack of availability for an appropriate Broadway house for the 2014-15 season. It will also no longer have its Canadian premiere at the Royal Alexandra Theatre in Toronto this summer.With a score by Yeston and a book by Stone, Titanic details the lives of a cross-section of the 2,200 people on the voyage in 1912, more than 1,500 of whom met their deaths when the ship crashed into an iceberg. The original musical focused on the vessel’s passengers in first-class, second-class and steerage with a rousing score that included the tunes “Godspeed Titanic,” “The Largest Floating Object in the World” and “I Must Get On that Ship.”Revised plans for the show’s Broadway bow will be revealed as soon as scheduling allows.

Green Mountain National Forest closure means southern Long Trail and Appalachian Trail closures

first_imgThe Green Mountain Club today expressed strong support for the Green Mountain National Forest temporary closure.  This closure applies to the Appalachian Trail through Vermont and the Long Trail system from the Massachusetts border to Mt. Ellen in Warren.  The Green Mountain Club manages the Long Trail as well as most of the Appalachian Trail in Vermont in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service, the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources, the Appalachian Trail Conservancy and private land owners. ‘There is so much work to do in Vermont communities up and down the Green Mountains and now is not the time for hiking in those areas,’ said Will Wiquist, executive director of the Green Mountain Club.  ‘Hiking on the National Forest in these areas could be dangerous and could also get in the way of important recovery efforts.’ With the Labor Day weekend taking place, the club also noted that the towns of Duxbury and Huntington have closed the roads leading to the primary trails on Camels Hump.  Camels Hump Road in Duxbury is entirely closed and is extremely dangerous and impassible.  Access to the mountain from the Huntington side is closed due to a land slide.  Hikers are advised to avoid hiking Camels Hump until further notice. ‘Closed means closed,’ he said.  ‘Both overnight and day hikers should not enter the national forest at all. There are hikes available on northern Vermont summits like Mt. Hunger, Mt. Mansfield, and Laraway Mtn.’ In general, the Long Trail itself appears to have survived tropical storm Irene with relatively minimal damage.  The club has been maintaining a detailed list of trail conditions and road reports related to hiking trails.  While far from comprehensive, this is an excellent resource for hikers.  Even so, Wiquist advises, ‘hike and drive with caution even in places seemingly unaffected by Irene, as the entire trail network has not yet been fully assessed. And of course heed all federal, state and local road closures.’ The Appalachian Trail, which stretches from Georgia to Maine, overlaps the Long Trail from Massachusetts to Killington, Vt. then diverges from the Long Trail and heads east toward New Hampshire.  The ‘AT’ lost at least two bridges in Vermont.  The AT is closed in Vermont ‘ from Massachusetts to Norwich, Vt. Green Mountain Club’s seasonal caretakers and Long Trail Patrol have spent most of this week working to help Waterbury village residents recover from the flood.  The club plans to send its Appalachian Trail Conservancy- and Green Mountain National Forest-sponsored Volunteer Long Trail Patrol to a local community in southern Vermont with help from the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation. For the holiday weekend, caretakers have returned to the northern Long Trail.last_img read more

It’s all about the borrower: How to compete for today’s ever-connected consumer

first_imgOnline and always connected, today’s consumers expect an “anytime, anywhere” experience when doing their banking, and a seamless, intuitive interface is key to keeping them on your website and on board with your financial institution. Lenders can no longer consider Web-based technologies as an “add-on”; it’s now integral to staying competitive.Financial consumers have raised their expectations, especially when it comes to lending. They’re no longer satisfied with a fill-in application form. They look for immediate answers on loan options, approvals and documentation, and lenders put themselves at risk if they find themselves unable to respond quickly.Lenders must integrate technology to provide the best user experience for their customers, and must carefully select solutions that provide easy-to-use applications and constant communication and tracking.With digital banking, delivering easy and satisfying online and in-person interactions to borrowers gives originators the opportunity gain new customers – and keep current ones – in this very competitive environment. Faster completion of what can be an intimidating end-to-end loan process, supplemented by helpful guidance from available loan officers, is what can really differentiate one lender over another – and make borrowers more willing to come back for more. continue reading » 13SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
