Re: Women in STEM
Employeers should not pay less to females who have the same education, capacity, and experience than their male counterparts.

Re: Women: The Unmined Gems of Everything
Yes, it should even be a discussion about it at this point. It only shows how little society has evolved.

Re: Women: The Unmined Gems of Everything
 @Susan Fourtane I know. It shouldn't even be a discussion about the sexes anymore. It should be about who is best qualified for a particular job, and at the same rate of pay.

Re: Women in STEM
I wonder if the imbalance in the workplace may have an effect on pay scales, considering women are "47% of the total employed -- hold only 24% of STEM positions," and that might allow employers to consciously or not pay less for females who would have less standing in the better paid positions.

Re: Women in STEM
Freehe: I don't undersatnd either why women are paid less than men. It's ridiculous that in 2018 this still happens.

Re: Women: The Unmined Gems of Everything
srufolo: sometimes in discussions like this I find it unbelievable that we are living in the 21st century and yet, so many women still strugle to get recognition in fields that were once dominated my men. No society can call itself advanced if it doesn't recognize the achievements of their women.

Re: STEM
Perhaps then society should start by not programming all girls in roles as mothers. Not every woman wants to have children. Having a demanding career is also a life choice which is utterly rewrading.

Re: Women: The Unmined Gems of Everything
Or Caroline Herschel, the first woman to discover a comet. And so many others. If interested, here are more: https://interestingengineering.com/female-inventors-and-their-inventions-that-changed-the-world-and-impacted-the-history-in-a-revolutionary-way

What I always find interesting about many of those women is that in their times it was not always common for a woman to receive the same education men had. Despite that, they were perseverant, most of them were self-taught, and accomplished incredible things. Their lives were hand but fascinating.

Re: Women: The Unmined Gems of Everything
I will only leave you w/this:   Gandhi reminded all to be the change you wish to see in the World--I for one will be that change--as I remind you that what they did was honored--including I believe by President Obama.    We shall, can and will do better.

Onward to October folks....

The MDU market continues to face fierce competition among service providers due to tech-savvy residents (i.e., millennials), demand from building owners and management companies, plus the favorable economics of bulk contracts. However, no MDUs are the same, so service providers must use multiple technologies and inconsistent deployment models, increasing operational complexity and rollout costs.

The MDU market itself is evolving as residents adopt smart-home technologies, generating rising demand for smart apartments with built-in connected thermostats, keyless entryways and doors, and video doorbells. This evolution presents both new challenges and opportunities. In other words, service providers must consider innovative service-delivery strategies to compete and win.

In this Broadband World News and ADTRAN webinar, Kurt Raaflaub, Head of Strategic Solutions Marketing, will highlight emerging MDU broadband Internet trends and challenges. In addition, Kurt will outline the next-generation service creation and delivery platform, built on open standards, that allows service providers to connect millions of underserved MDUs, enables creation of user-driven services, and reduces operational complexity and costs.

Plus, special guest, Alice Lawson, Broadband and Cable Program Manager for the City of Seattle, will discuss Seattle’s B4B-Build For Broadband initiative that addresses best practices in planning for MDU telecommunication infrastructure.
