Better Jobs with Companies that Care
Feb. 8th 2018
The 2018 Winter Olympic opening ceremonies may not start until tomorrow, but to say we're excited would be an understatement. Did you know, that it wasn't until 2012 that women were allowed to participate in every Olympic sport? 2018 also marks the return of women's ski jumping, which was banned until the 2014 Olympics after the president of the International Ski Federation explained to NPR that the sport "seems not to be appropriate for ladies from a medical point of view". Thanks to women like Lindsey Vonn, and 15 additional accomplished female jumpers, a lawsuit was filed and women's jumping was reinstated.

Heidi Sager loves math, but she also loves working with people.
She always has, which is why she enjoyed her part-time job working at the IT department of the University of Colorado while she was studying electrical engineering. (She'd started in computer science, but explains that it "wasn't for her" and switched her major.) She helped students and professors with word processors, basic programming, and software checkout, and took a full-time job after graduation as a UNIX system administrator.
Working at Relativity—the global tech company that equips legal and compliance professionals with a powerful data-organizing and discovery platform—looked different in 2020. The highly collaborative environment of their Chicago headquarters transitioned to a virtual setting, and just like companies around the country, Relativity adapted their goals and major projects to a completely remote environment.
