The relatively new privacy industry has so far been immune to the gender bias that permeates many other fields, according to data from the International Association of Privacy Professionals IAPP .While sexism continues to be a problem across many related professions — consider the lack of women on boards, the sexist courtroom dialog, and Silicon Valley s gender bias, the privacy field appears to be a rare beacon of gender equity.The IAPP proudly declares, based on its 2015 IAPP Salary and Governance Survey, that Women and men who are coming into the privacy profession can be confident that they ll find a modern and balanced workforce and that they ll be rewarded for their experience and expertise, not their chromosome count.And is there a risk the field will lose its gender balance as it evolves?Privacy professionals are responsible for providing strategic advice to organizations on privacy issues.They may also develop a company s privacy strategy, analyze privacy regulations, respond to data incidents, monitor and measure privacy compliance and enforcement, perform privacy risk assessments and data inventories, and numerous other related duties.The most recent survey by IAPP shows that women are equally represented and compensated in the privacy field.First, survey respondents were a 50-50 split between women and men, indicating a more even gender ratio.Second, the reported median salaries for privacy professionals are equal between men and women.We don t see different disciplines intersecting to that same extent in technology or law, explained Hilary M. Wandall, chair of the IAPP board and a privacy professional of 15 years.
I do know that if I search Slack ― the messaging app millennial office drones use to talk about work things and decidedly not-work things ― for recent instances of the word nice in my channels, I get 2,034 results.My colleagues and I have used the word nice to describe or comment on the following: an idyllic island off the coast of Korea, a picture of a huge asteroid hitting Earth, Cher s Twitter account, someone s decision to grab coffee, Lady Gaga singing Born This Way to children in foster care, and a carefully placed photo of Donald Trump snarling.Nice was used to refer to a variety of less-than-great sentiments including wantonness, extravagance, ostentation, lasciviousness, cowardice and sloth.The word started to hint not at ostentation or cowardice but shyness and reserve; not in a negative way, but certainly not yet positively.Folks in the 17th and 18th centuries, though, they loved modesty.Merriam-Webster, another fine purveyor of diction, provides a few examples of past and considerably different usages on its blog:
I m sure you ve heard the saying, If I d asked my customers what they wanted, they d have said a faster horse.While I don t believe Henry Ford actually said that, I also don t agree with those that think that faster horses is not a helpful answer.When people say they want faster horses, they are letting you know what the real problem is.But, if we keep asking why to the same people like a five-year-old, we will peel layers of this onion-like problem and discover that speed is the real problem here.They are saying they want to commute faster.They just want to get to their work and homes faster.It s the emotion and motivation behind the ask that matters.A while ago, I wrote a piece titled Chatbots won t fix your customer service.I have gotten into some interesting conversations and arguments on that topic.I wrote:When people say I hate talking to customer support at company XYZ, they do not mean they dislike talking to a human or talking on the phone per se.
NEW YORK—In a graffiti-splashed classroom in lower Manhattan, students are learning to write computer code at a private academy whose methods and results have caught the eye of Silicon Valley and the Obama administration.The Flatiron School s 12-week course costs $15,000, but earns students no degree and no certificate.Employers are increasingly hiring graduates of the Flatiron model—short, intensely focused curricula that are constantly retailored to meet company needs.Success, its backers say, could help fuel a revolution in how the U.S. invests in higher education, pushing more institutions toward teaching distinct aptitudes and away from granting broad degrees.Ted Mitchell, the Education Department s undersecretary, says the pilot program represents a shift toward getting government to focus in a laserlike way on outcomes, rather than on simply increasing Americans access to college.Flatiron co-founder Adam Enbar says the school can quickly adjust its curriculum.
