(3BL Media/Justmeans) – Women and minority entrepreneurs are not participating in high-tech incubators and accelerators at the same rates as their white, male counterparts in America. That’s just one of the findings from new report by JPMorgan Chase & Co. and the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City. This study, Creating Inclusive High-Tech Incubators and Accelerators: Strategies to Increase Participation Rates of Women and Minority Entrepreneurs, is based on interviews with over 75...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – The issue of pay and gender equality is high on the international news agenda. Actress Robin Wright recently demanded to be paid the same as co-star Kevin Spacey for her work on Netflix’ hit series, ‘House of Cards’. Wright joins a growing group of women in Hollywood who are becoming more vocal on the issue of equal pay. Last year, Jennifer Lawrence drew widespread attention for speaking up about making less than her male costars on the film, American Hustle; since then she’s been a forceful advocate for pay equity.

In Britain, positive strides are being made as reporting on gender pay gaps is to...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – Millennials — the 20 and early 30-somethings that everyone is talking about; who are closely linked to technology’s rapid ascent; and who are expected to make up 50 percent of the workforce by 2020 — have become more than a demographic age group. They are associated with a new way of looking at the world, possessing a mindset that says there has to be a way to make life easier, faster, more flexible and efficient, a way to make the way we interact with the world more personal, inclusive and intuitive. Their thinking also permeates into their attitudes about working life.

Five years ago, a salary was expected to be...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – It’s now a moral and economic crisis when many young Americans graduate from high school without being on a pathway to a well-paying job. In Greater New Orleans, nearly one in five young people are neither working or in school. The region is home to the third largest population of disconnected youth in the U.S., where nearly 40 percent of of the children live in poverty and few students have exposure to good-paying, high-demand careers. All this is in conflict with the growing industries in Greater New Orleans, which require a more skilled workforce.

Sadly, there is a big disconnect between growing industries and...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – In the US, there is no federal paid parental leave (or maternity), making it one of the few developed countries in the world lacking state support for new parents, though many states have their own systems. However, corporate policies can be very generous and Diageo, the global leader in beverage alcohol, has been recognised as one of the best places to work for new American dads by Fatherly, the digital lifestyle guide for men entering parenthood. Diageo was selected for the ...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – It is predicted that one in four of us will be affected by mental illness in a year. Though the effects are as real as a broken arm, it is an invisible and silent illness. This is why Mental Health Awareness Week 2016 took place in the UK from 16-22 May, to help raise awareness about this taboo issue. This year’s theme is "relationships."

Mental illness is still surrounded by a certain prejudice, ignorance and fear. These negative attitudes mean it is harder for mental health suffers to work, make friends and live a normal...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – Do you know much about the “Mumpreneur” economy? These are businesses run by mothers with children under 18, which generated a staggering, £7.2bn for the U.K. economy in 2014 supporting over 200,000 jobs! Now this figure is set to rise to £9.5bn by 2025, according to research by EBay. Mums behind the nation's small businesses are becoming a powerful economic force in the U.K. Being able to run a business alongside bringing up children could be deemed a perfect job, giving more of a flexible...

(3BLMedia/Justmeans) – Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, and one of the poorest countries in the developing world. Its per capita income of $250 is considerably less than one-tenth the Latin American average. So, when a positive and unique story comes along about empowering local mothers, you immediately want to share that story. It is about how scrap fabric from the acclaimed Herman Miller, the global furniture designer and manufacturer, is being put to good use, and has initiated a circular economy by helping women in Haiti earn money to keep their children.

It all started...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – What would you say, if you knew that only one in five U.K. small businesses are majority-woman owned and yet contribute over £75 billion to the country’s economy? Or that if women set up businesses at the same rate as men, there would be a significant boost to the U.K.’s economic growth. These thought provoking statistics are revealed in the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) latest report,...
