Surviving genocide: Storytelling and ritual help communities heal

Wed, 2017-05-17 15:03

Four years after the attack, Shingali and his family have escaped grave bodily harm. But like thousands of other exiled Yezidis, they are still dealing with the psychological aftermath of a forced migration that tore families apart. When political or religious violence drives people from their homes, “there’s confusion, loss, a rupturing of all sorts of bonds,” says cultural psychiatrist Laurence Kirmayer of McGill University in Montreal, Canada.

Andrea Courey talks about granola, entrepreneurship and compassion

Wed, 2017-05-17 12:50

Andrea Courey (BCom’82) was newly divorced, with three kids to feed and no money in the bank when she started Grandma Emily’s Granola. She credits her BCom education with giving her the tools she needed to get through the early days of her business, but notes that real-world experience is a very different thing than classroom knowledge.

Gender bias hits male managers in female-stereotyped jobs

Wed, 2017-05-17 12:39

A new study co-authored by Desautels Professor Laura Doering looks at the role gender played in missed payments at a microfinance bank.

What the authors discovered was that clients who associated their bank manager’s job as a “female” role were more likely to miss payments. In a wider sense, male managers tend to enjoy less authority when filling a job that was previously done by a woman.

Worried about job automation? Not so fast…

Wed, 2017-05-17 12:30

Dire predictions about the impending robot-worker invasion abound. It seems like every day, academics and other thought-leaders trot out statistics about how many jobs are going to be vaporized by technology.

Well, new research from the Information Technology & Innovation Foundation suggests otherwise. While not all jobs are safe, there are many tasks that robots just can’t do — and technology also creates jobs, though admittedly not as many as it eliminates.
