5 Ways the Role of the CIO is Evolving

If we wind back 10-15 years ago, the CIO’s primary responsibility was to select and manage IT solutions.

At the office, unrewarded work often falls to women

If there’s extra work to be done at the office, more often than not a woman ends up doing it.

Whether it’s planning a birthday party, taking notes, or serving on a committee, studies have found that women are more likely than men to take on service-oriented tasks, which usually come with little benefit to their careers. And the disparity is even more pronounced for women of color.

How to Incorporate Accessible Design Elements into Mobile Apps

Accessible design is normal design. So the designers and developers of mobile apps should not draw a line between accessible and normal or usual design. Most people are likely to experience some form of disability—either temporarily or permanently—at some point in their life.

If you’ve ever used your mobile device’s operating system in dark mode, zoomed or adjusted the size of text in a Web browser, or dictated text into Siri, you’ve benefited from your device’s accessibility features.
