Conference discusses diversity

first_imgThe Mendoza College of Business kicks off its fifth-annual diversity conference this weekend in hopes of exploring diversity found in the workplace. Graduate student Jay Xie, co-chair of the conference, said the event is geared toward building awareness of diversity both on campus and in the business world. “We want to look at what diversity means in the global environment,” Xie said. “With the information and technology we have, the market is moving at a quick rate and organizations have to make decisions quickly. We want to see how diversity plays a part in these decisions.” Several companies will participate this weekend, including Ernst & Young, Coca-Cola, Bank of America and Deloitte. “Diversity is a really important issue for the participating companies,” Xie said. “A lot of these companies want to talk about the success and challenges they face by working with a diverse employee base.” Xie said the conference would allow these companies to strengthen their connection with Notre Dame students. “They are coming here to hopefully establish a deeper relationship with us,” he said. “A lot of these companies are actively recruiting or considering recruiting on campus.” Based on the success of the conference in its previous four years, Xie said he hopes it continues to generate dialogue among professionals, faculty and students. “We want a wide array of people to be able to share their experiences,” he said. “But I think the ones that will get the most out of it will be students.” Xie said the conference would help Notre Dame students understand the benefits of employees and co-workers from a multitude of backgrounds. “I think students would take away from this conference a greater appreciation for what diversity offers in the workplace,” he said. Although the diversity conference is hosted by the College of Business, Xie said the event is designed for students of all majors. “The undergraduate population can get the most from this conference,” he said. “I think when these conferences pop up, they are really good opportunities for all students to learn from the experts, build up their network and find opportunities.” The conference will commence Friday at 1 p.m. in the Mendoza College of Business and a closing address will be held Saturday at 3:15 in the Jordan Auditorium of the College.last_img read more

Players who will be missing at Euro 2020 due to injury

first_img “[It’s] normally six weeks to heal, but I’m not a doctor, and then he needs rehab after that probably.” Giorgio Chiellini and Davide Zappacosta face a serious fight if they are to return to full fitness in sufficient time to earn their place in Roberto Mancini’s plans for Italy at Euro 2020. The two defenders are both working their way back from knee injuries. Wales midfielder David Brooks is a long-term injury concern, having gone under the knife in order to treat an ankle injury and would require a slice of luck if he is to make Ryan Giggs’ squad. Should Scotland qualify for the tournament, they could well have to compete without Aston Villa midfielder John McGinn, who suffered a broken ankle in December. Germany boss Joachim Low will be monitoring the availability of of Leroy Sane and Niklas Sule as they continue to recover from their respective knee injuries. Both players suffered cruciate ligament injuries, but could be back in action by March and April, which would be a welcome boost for Low. Sami Khedira is another minor concern for Low, with the Juventus star undergoing keyhole surgery in his knee in December. Paul Pogba has not played much for Manchester United this season, a trend which, if it continues, could have a detrimental impact on his chances of being selected in the France squad. The midfielder’s desire to leave Old Trafford has played a part in his absences, no doubt, but he has also suffered injury set-backs – most recently a recurrence of an ankle problem. Another player whose place in Les Bleus panel is a doubt is Bayern Munich’s Kingsley Coman after the winger sustained a knee ligament injury in a Champions League clash against Spurs in December. Coman, who was not involved in the 2018 World Cup triumph with his country, will no doubt be desperate for a speedy return to action. Thomas Lemar is another slight concern thanks to a hamstring injury, but the Atletico Madrid star should be back in action well ahead of the tournament. Portugal, meanwhile, may have to plan for the tournament without William Carvalho as he manages a back problem. read also:Guardiola names who to blame for Kane, Rashford injuries The Real Betis midfielder is suffering from a spinal disc herniation and receiving specialist treatment.

Remarkably, Juve’s Merih Demiral suffered an ACL injury in the same game as Zaniolo, meaning he will not play a part in Euro 2020 for Turkey. Memphis Depay is not expected to be ready to play a part in the Netherlands’ Euro 2020 campaign after suffering an ACL injury in December while playing for Lyon. Meanwhile, wing-back Jetro Willems’ absence from the Orange squad is set to continue after he sustained a cruciate ligament injury while playing for Newcastle United in January.center_img With Euro 2020 just a few months away, several players in the various leagues across Europe may have been ruled out of the fiesta as a result of injury. Portugal will be unable to call upon Andre Gomes following the midfielder’s gruesome ankle dislocation, which was sustained during a game for Everton against Tottenham last November. Gomes’ recovery is expected to take anywhere between six months and a year, meaning he will not be involved in the defence of a title he helped the Selecao win in 2016. Major doubts for Euro 2020England have some serious concerns regarding Harry Kane after the Tottenham star was forced to undergo surgery on a ruptured hamstring tendon. The timeframe for Kane’s recovery is set at three months, which would mean an April return, but Spurs boss Jose Mourinho remains pessimistic, suggesting the striker could miss the rest of the season. “We expect him to be out until mid-April, end of April, May, next season. I don’t know,” Mourinho told reporters in January. Another major worry for the Three Lions is the fitness of Marcus Rashford following news that the Manchester United forward is undergoing treatment for a double stress fracture in his back. The initial treatment period for the injury, which has been described as “bad” by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, is six weeks with a period of rehabilitation to follow – so potentially two months out of action at least. “He’ll be out for a while. He won’t be back until after the mid-season break,” said Solskjaer when quizzed about the injury.last_img read more
