Better Jobs With Companies That Care

Feb. 20th 2018

Did you get a chance to see Black Panther over the holiday weekend? If not, it's ok- we know it was sold out in many theatres across the country, so no spoilers here, we promise! What we can (and are dying) to talk about is how this movie is elevating black women (at least one woman is in almost every scene!). Just when we thought Wonder Woman was the ideal superhero, we now have four more female super-women who actually fight with their intelligence and inner strength rather than a potion or a power. For the first time in history, none of the female characters are pitted against each other; they may argue and have different opinions, but they aren't fighting over a guy and definitely don't need one to save them. We'd love to talk more about this movie (spoilers and all!) and any of your other favorite superhero movies on Networks!

How These Companies Are Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

According to a recent study, anti-Asian hate crimes have risen 150% since the pandemic started. But these acts of violence are not new — they are part of a much larger history of anti-Asian racism and violence in the U.S.

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.
