The Critical Connection Between Resilient Workplaces And Diversity

By Eileen McDargh - Monday, January 28, 2019

The standard concept of sustainability is the capacity of biological systems to remain diverse and productive over time—like healthy wetlands and old growth forests.

Mayshad Magazine is an advocacy platform for empowerment which mainly focuses on empowering women, raising awareness and exploring a contemporary lifestyle.  Their tagline is "Be Who You Want To Be" and their content is both educating and uplifting.  I was delighted when I was approached for an interview and I'm excited to share it with you.

The same study noted that resolutions made by those in their twenties were achieved almost 40% of the time. While still low, it was much higher than their older counterparts.
