Diversity mentoring : One of the top ways to innovate is by bringing in new ideas from senior employees and leaders from underrepresented groups (., women, ethnic minorities, etc.). Who is an underrepresented group depends on the industry sector and country. In many Western countries, women and ethnic minorities are significantly underrepresented in executive positions and boards of directors. In some traditionally gender segregated occupations, such as education and nursing , however, women may be the dominant gender in the workforce. Mentors from underrepresented groups can empower employees from underrepresented groups to increase their confidence to take on higher-responsibility tasks and prepare for leadership roles. By developing employees from diverse groups, this can give the organization access to new ideas, new ways of looking at problems, and new perspectives. This also brings cultural awareness and intercultural dialogue into the workplace.
Thank you so much for this forum! I have been scouring the web for info. and the information here is fantastic! I have been trying to sort out my heart issues for 3 yrs. and there just seems to be so much gray area!!! I am a 42yr. old female in good shape. I play competitive doubles tennis 2x/wk and jog 3x/wk. I am no L. Armostrong by any means!! I started off with Tachycardia events 3yrs. ago and was put on a very low dose of toprol. This made me feel tired and while playing tennis seemed to trigger more symptoms. I went off the med. a yr. ago and gave up going to my 3 mo. dr. because I was fed up. Well, at the end of Jan. I started to exercise slightly more to get ready for a cruise at S. Break and shortly after that I became extremely tired, was cold all the time, when I woke had tingly hands like they had fallen asleep, some mental confusion etc. Just some random symptoms. I looked in the mirror at my white face and was thinking what the heck is wrong with me??? I then thought about taking my pulse. It was 46. I went back to the EP and was given a holter patch for 2 weeks. It came back as my low being 33 while sleeping and high was 170. I had PAC’s and PVC’s The Ep said that this was fine but want to check me in 3 months again??? My question is does that mean I have athletic heart? Is she saying that I am normal? I do like to exercise but like I said I’m not training for anything and usually on my 3 mile jog I have to walk some of it. I just think 33 seems awfully low. When I talk to my tennis friends about it they all seem shocked and alarmed. Should I get a second opinion or should I be happy that they said I’m fine. Sorry this is so long and drawn out I just feel so lost in all of this. If you could give me any of your thoughts on this I would really appreciate it. Thank you so much for your time. Have a great day!
We’ve discussed that the essential amino acid content of a protein source is a major determinant of its anabolic potential. Of the essential amino acids, leucine is especially potent at stimulating MPS. However, it’s not necessarily the amount of leucine in a protein source/meal that is important; what really matters is the level of leucine that is reached in your blood. The plasma leucine level will obviously partly depend on the leucine content of your protein source/meal, but if a protein is slowly digested, the leucine never reaches high plasma levels.
