Now in her 90s, Soskin is the country's oldest active park ranger, serving at the Rosie the Riveter World War II/Home Front National Historical Park in Richmond, California, which she helped bring into existence.

Gender Balance is Our Business by Sodexo
Static Preview
Published on Mar 17, 2016

Looking around our world today, many indicators show that our society has taken great strides toward gender balance. Many countries have had or currently have a female head of state and women now outnumber men at some of the world leading universities. But this balance, unfortunately, is not found everywhere. The fact that the corporate glass ceiling remains largely intact shows us that that we are not as far along as we should be in the business realm. Although many companies have advocated for inclusion over the years, the business community as a whole still lacks gender balance: today, the average salary for women is equivalent to the average salary of men a decade ago.

As the leader of Sodexo, a company of 420,000 men and women, I believe that we need to address gender balance not only for the sake of equality, but for the sake of our business as well. We are one of the largest employers in the world, and we serve 75 million consumers every day: the composition of our teams must resemble the people we serve. Gender balance is not only our professional responsibility but also a key pillar in the way we conduct our business.

Youth Empowerment Message by Elder Dave Courchene
Static Preview

"Join those who have found their heart."

Elder Dave Courchene (Anishinnabe Nation*, Eagle Clan) talks with us on moving beyond selfishness, greed and need for power. We must return to the beginning and understand that we are spiritual beings that must be rooted in the land. In today's world we continue to support ideologies and concepts that separate us as the human family and help us destroy our home that we call Mother Earth. We are denying our young people their rights and he particularly addresses this issue and seek the guidance we need especially from our grandmothers. Published on Aug 14, 2015

"Anishinaabe or more properly Anishinaabeg or Anishinabek (which is the plural form of the word) is a collective term that refers to the Ojibway, Odawa and Algonkin Peoples, who all share closely related Algonquian languages."
