"You mentioned earlier that you've seen a of progress that you've got good numbers relative to your peers. What are you measure. How do you actually measure diversity at at checker devastate has many dimensions. And it's important to recognize in highlight or of the dimensions of diversity. It can be social economic backgrounds raise. Gender religious views does vide at lot of dimensions of davis Or in my opinion posits even in goud to have Culture diverse workforce diversity of thoughts. But it's hard to make progress when we don't measure things in the united new junior. I i believe in in measuring progress in setting targets and goals in overtime by raging. You can make changes in any dimension though metric. You want the company as long as you walk out at ethan and keep focus on that metrics. We decided i'll core metrics for diversity will be gender diversity so we measure gender diversity by the percentage of non maalim That he mail in an auto gender identities we also have underrepresented groups as a measurement of diversity in we'll have a metric that is checker only metric which is the fat chance program infections diversity people with criminal records that including so are three metrics that will really pushing but again when we look at our data and surveys we order review sexual preference in a gin author of the more traditional metrics to make sure that we don't have any gaps or the making progress. You know dimensions of diversity. Fantastic so as we talk about measuring diversity any gotcha as anything to be careful about our watch out for as you think about what to measure yet measuring it's to after maybe you can. You can share from the perspective even having accurate measurement is not an easy process right. The difficulty is that in a lotta situations. people have to self identify. We've found that the accepted sherm. Society human resources management methodology. The preferred methodology is visual. Id so hr folks really just being someone. As a specific. Ethnic background is an acceptable measure. But obviously that's a slippery slope as well and so we're trying to combine both in making sure that where bucking someone somewhere but there are people who identifies in a multi-race or or to a more ethnic backgrounds. So there's a lot of slippery slopes there but we're doing the best we can between surveys and just our hr team being as diligent and fair as possible and identifying people. As far as the gotcha stuff. You just wanna make sure that you're being genuine in how you're approaching the metrics right in that you're thinking with diversity in mind rather than hitting that metric. That's not the most important thing. The goal was important. Because you need sort of a north star to guide you somewhere but everything is done in that process right ensuring that you're trying to get to the goal rather than just. Hey we're fifty percents gender diversity. Now we're done. We can slide the ratio back to seventy five percent male over the course of time. Because we've hit it once it's just really ensuring that the journey is always consistent in the intent is genuine if you do that then. You're headed in the right place. And i would add that to. The date is not going to be perfect because of those identification potential chinese trying to prioritize self-identification. So that people can you know themselves. Express their identity. It's gave the data is not perfect. You know. I think what's important. It's again these to move the metric into the right direction. So even if we're plus minus five percents off as long as we keep our eye on the improvement look at the metric also be anecdotes in the company and we make sure at the top of mine in. The program keeps improving. I think.

"This is on point I magnin Chakrabarti we're talking about something interesting that's happening in two thousand nineteen and that is the fact that this year women become the majority of the college educated workforce in America now ostensibly that could bring some pretty good changes to the American workplace but also on just continue to persist so we WANNA know what you're seeing in in your workplace if you've seen a growth in the number of college educated women there what has changed for the better what hasn't changed we're joined today by Nicole Smith she's chief economist at the Georgetown University Center on Education and the workforce Arianna hege fish also joins US as program director of employment earnings at the Institute for Women's policy research now Arianna Nicole I promise that we're we're GonNa talk about sort of the positive changes that can come along with this transformation of the workforce but I gotTa keep it real here for another couple of minutes and let's talk more about that persistent pay gap because I'm seeing evidence here that not only do pay gaps still exist across the board regardless of a women's education level but that in fact there seems to be some evidence that the more educated a woman becomes the pay gap actually grows between her and her similarly educated male counterparts Ariane is that true unfortunately it's too I mean I should what I should say is it still is a good investment to have a degree right unless you can do a very good apprenticeship but to have a degree you earn more but you don't ernest much as as a guy and the problem is you know partly it's discrimination in the job but you may not get hired to the same high performing firm and you may not had promotions as much as a similar man and you know bias may creep into the the performance assessment that you get so one thing that all those women who've are now in academia have pushed is much more research on the type of biases and to try to develop trainings and really increased awareness of all the type of Houston flow in that really have nothing to do with performance but lead to wage gap I mean at at the advanced degree level for example it seems like the gap can be I don't know twenty thirty percent even so I have some numbers for yeah yeah a woman with with a bachelors degree on average can make almost thirty thousand dollars per less per year than a man would a bachelor's degree for me should all degrees like lawyers that's up to forty thousand and PhD's unfortunately like myself about twenty thousand so so it's not necessarily you know one hundred percent increase with with Marge Gatien but at the end of the day it's somewhere between twenty thirty or forty thousand dollars difference per year between a man and woman who is equivalent qualified and if you are sub anywhere between twenty and forty thousand dollars for some people with high school diploma and above so at the end of the day these are significant differences that can accumulate over time for women for Families for you know women who are heads of households this has a lot to do with the types of degrees at women pursued at types of jobs you're in but this is a significant portion of that that's also discrimination and something that Ariane raised about people's perception about women we all know that the very first salary you get could be platform upon which all your other salaries are based so you might go in there and you've even if you get a raise it's five percent ten percent ten percent of your base if you start off at a lower number then even if you get that increase you will always be running a losing battle because you you'd never actually GonNa make exactly what your male counterparts make and personality wise we we've done research on what types of personality I mean there's a lot of sociocultural breath perceptions and behaviors that also influenced this women who are extreme remotely aggressive or or or conscientious or asking for what they think they deserve often looked upon an unfavorable manner and and you know might be shooting themselves in the foot in terms of getting that opportunity would a male counterpart doing exactly the same thing asking for exactly the same race would be looked at as a go-getter so there's still lots of differences in perceptions of what is the women's place in how she should approach her boss or a director for that race that she deserves I am one hundred percent shaking my head in in affirmation based on personal experience Nicole Look I haven't cleared I remember my first job when I asked for a little bit more being told you should feel lucky that we offered you what we did so I didn't feel like he for the record I did not but also let let's I want to slice these numbers a little more deeply also as well because we're talking about numbers and aggregate but when we speak about women of color princes are even bigger aren't they absolutely so let me give you some numbers today if we use the Census Bureau's Most recent estimate the gender wage gap on average it's eighty two cents on a dollar between women and men but for Latino women it's fifty four cents on the dollar for Black Women sixty two cents on the dollar compared to what a white man makes for White Women Seventy nine cents on the dollar and for Asian woman it's ninety cents on the dollar and that's what average is off to the eighty reset so depending on race you can see extremely significant disparities pay gap and that's that's important interesting and go ahead I n t to to some extent those gaps reflect differences in educational attainment so in women for example are the group most likely to have college degrees but what you find is even if you compare just the women with college degrees they are women and men with college degrees the real racial hierarchies in pay and to some ex- and this is you know if you think black women may work a social workers is a big occupation its occupation which is notoriously under eight and you typically you need a master's degree to work there so you know it's this issue of occupational segregation and the fact that we really don't value those type of jobs where a lot of women were well. Let's go to Whitney who's calling from Tampa Florida Whitney you're on the air so how are you well Whitney what's your thought so I was agree with everything that you you've been talking about and my comment was actually sparked off of one of the prior callers about the female employees in the hospital who made less money having eight years Syrian versus the new graduate male for the same position I feel like some of it not all of it but some of the contributing actors come down to more of a societal cultural viewpoint of how we're even raised for example men being the rough tough usually more of a a stronger personality and the women not as much so when we go in especially initially to these job interviews and where trying to negotiate for pay I feel that men have a bit more of an advantage of an upper hand and because society almost kind of preps men to handle those types of situations a little bit better nine all cases but just in a lot of cases I feel that women can be a little more tended in accepting of what comes their way sometimes so I feel like that does play some some role right Winnie thank you for recall in Iran let me turn to you I want to take witness comments step further here because yes you could talk about sort of how women and men are socialized differently but I think I believe I read studies that show that even when women do ask for more in negotiations the manner in which they ask for it really makes a big difference right if they sort of do it in a conventional way and say well I feel like I deserve X. Because look at my background sometimes they're not as successful as if they sort of couch it in a in collaborative terms and so is there a sort of a gender difference even there yes I think this is exactly what Nicole was getting yeah we telling women you have to Goshi eight more you have basically have to be like a guy right the men are the models and if women behave like that they are not valued in the same way it's seen as something that is not feminine you know and therefore you're penalized for it so there's some study to say even if women asked Moore then you know you get rejected more But I do think that kind of advice for preparing a discussion with US supervisor about saying I think I should gain more the the advice to everybody's always to think through what can I contribute think through about the kind of goals and pressures on the person who you're trying to convince to give you a raise to be collaborative and to you know say the this is what I can deliver and I think you will benefit as well as I and it's fair so you know to be collaborative is always good and negotiate agents at least initially well Ariane Nicole hang on here for just a second because I want to bring into the conversation now George Bush way joining he's joining us from Fort Lauderdale Florida Georgia Vice President of human resources at the real estate and construction firm Styles Corporation he's also an expert panelist at the society Human Resource Management Georgia welcome to on point begging I'm glad to contribute to this important conversation so first of all tell us if you've seen the difference in your field or even in your company is specifically as as as time has marched on more college educated women are entering the workforce that that cohort of candidates because it's it's challenging to find good talent in the workforce and to have it any kind of bias towards not having women in the workforce is really not good for business because the talent pool take a smaller but I will share that that part of the challenges that in some areas of the business and certain industries the pool a smaller a case in point we happened to do commercial real estate development and construction in those particular areas it's hard to find candidates women Kennedy he's for for us a higher only because you don't have too many women that go into those fields contrary to that is in our account nothing divisions and within our property management division where you have women that are more interested in those fields it's a much larger your candidate pool and indeed when we look at our our divisions as to the demographics of it we do find that in probably counting the majority are women and construction development the majority of men and and we truly do make an effort to try to bring more for diversity across the board not just women but even from from a racial perspective different ethnicities because within the HR world it's it's it's acknowledged that diversity of thought is.

It's the annual safety health conference forty six years in the making Serena Schmidt marketing manager for the North Dakota safety council, and Jane wick more for safety and insurance are here with us today. I mentioned patient care courses hands on again, which is a big feature. What are you doing? There. We introduce the patient care courses last year. We partnered with Cindy, and they were a huge hit. We brought them back and we introduced some new topics and one of the big issues the north quarter right now as trenching safety. So we introduced a course to help companies prepare for how to care for patients if they were involved in a trench collapse. We'll have that will do a cardiac arrest one again industrial explore something happens. You have multiple injuries. You know, how to react in those situations and then one of the common injuries on the work site is being struck by an object. So we're to do something to make a head injury, and they'll have life like patient simulator. That will respond the type of carrier giving them so you can practice that actually see how a patient would respond to the carrier giving, and that's just not something you can just pick up the phone and say I want to do this. Right. I mean, that's that's a rare opportunity to have that level of those hands on patients here. Right. I mean, there's a lifelike patients. These are simulators I've seen it before.

And there's it's Mandy travels around the state and offers this and they agreed to partner with us in our conference. And how this gives them more lifelike first aid training for our our companies. So Jane, what will you be doing on the WS eyesight as far as course offerings? We have five core courses that we're going to offer this year with our in house experts. One of them's slips trips, and falls course, which is actually tied to our new safety discount program that just started January first we have this program in place just because of twenty percent of all the claims that w. Gets is in regards to slips trips and falls in those twenty percent claims make up thirty two percent of our total costs. Another one is in regards to workers classification, and that's more geared towards contractors. The other one is understanding and managing work related injuries. This is where Robin and Renee come in and talk about claims management return to work, which is really really important. Granted we don't want claims to happen. But when those claims happen employers need to know how manage those claims, and then get that injured worker back to work, and we also have worker's compensation fraud in North Dakota. And then the other one that we're going to have as opioid use in what you need to know. And our director of pharmacy will be putting on that. Once all good classes to come to Friday.
