Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Announcement  •

The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (ODEI) alongside Human Resources and Inclusive Communities and Student Affairs and Inclusive Excellence has launched the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Action Plan that will guide our work during the 2020-2021 academic year. One of our action items is to facilitate substantive discussions throughout the year on exploring the term antiracism and its implications for DU. These conversations will revolve around specific outcomes to make recommendations to the DEI Steering Committee and inform new strategic priorities at the university as well as unit-level strategic planning and programming.

LONDON (Reuters) – The outgoing boss of Pearson hailed the wisdom of his lengthy and often painful battle to rebuild the education group for a digital generation on Wednesday after COVID-19 accelerated the switch to online learning.

John Fallon, who issued a string of profit warnings as students moved from expensive textbooks to digital learning, said the company would not have been able to cope with the rapid shift online during the pandemic had it not previously prepared.

While group sales fell in the first nine months due to cancelled tests and closed schools, global online learning jumped 32% in the third quarter.

Fallon said while he “owned” the profit downgrades and the shareprice drop – falling more than 50% during his tenure – he said he had also earned the right to ask where the company would be if he had not taken out costs and

Countless parents in East St. Louis say they are relying on minimal resources while struggling to gain internet access to help their children participate in remote learning at area schools during the coronavirus pandemic.

East St. Louis is a largely Black community where nearly 40% of residents live below the federal poverty line, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

Melissa Lawson, a single mother of three who lives there while juggling multiple jobs, told the Belleville News-Democrat that she already had to make adjustments to get by before the pandemic after being severely injured in a car accident. She said some of the cutbacks included canceling internet service.

“Sometimes, we would go to a McDonald’s parking lot and use their Wi-Fi, and even with that, you only get so much with the hotspot,” Lawson noted. “Then you run into the problem of what if my laptop

LONDON – October 8, 2020 – ( Newswire.com )

Data is universally indicated as the key challenge in IFRS 17 implementations. “We designed our IFRS 17 solution from start to finish with data quality in mind. 3Blocks has differentiated itself in this regard by adding machine learning to the arsenal of data checks and validation. We are the first on the market to do that,” says Pawel Wozniak, CEO of 3Blocks.

3Blocks has been known for providing IFRS 17 and Solvency 2 reporting advisory services, but now it has launched its own IFRS 17 software. They have been working on IFRS 17 projects for insurance companies and other IT firms since 2016. Their solution has been built on the back of these experiences, taking into account lessons learned from them. 3Blocks

With the rise in remote work, the cloud industry has experienced extraordinary growth, largely due to enterprise businesses transitioning their physical IT infrastructure to the cloud. Along with this rapid expansion into cloud technology comes the need for a workforce with cloud expertise.

At the moment, the IT needs are changing faster than the employees in charge of these programs can handle. In fact, only 56% of cloud leaders report having an actionable plan to upskill their workforce in cloud environments.

The lack of planning surrounding employee training is only one of the pain points that comes with navigating the complexity of the cloud. Other barriers to success include a lack of internal skills and knowledge, balancing competing priorities with day-to-day work, and providing enough time for employees to study the ins and outs of the major cloud providers, while also doing their existing full-time jobs.

Berroa lives in a shelter in New York City and repeatedly tried to contact school officials to help her daughters log into remote learning classrooms on school-issued iPads.

So far, she hasn’t gotten anywhere.

”If one (iPad) connects and the other doesn’t, I’m screwed,” Berroa said. “There’s nothing I can do. Sometimes it doesn’t connect at all during the day. My daughter is a first grader. She’s learning how to read right now. And I have no idea what’s going on.”

The past seven months have been a big strain on families like Mandi Boren’s.

The Borens are cattle ranchers on a remote slice of land near Idaho’s Owyhee Mountains. They have four kids — ranging from a first grader to a sophomore in high school. When the lockdown first hit, Boren first thought it might be a good thing. Home schooling temporarily could be more efficient, plus there’d be more family time and help with the chores.

“I thought, I’ll be able to get my kids’ schooling done in a few hours and then
