Brecha salarial

El concepto de brecha salarial (gender wage gap, en inglés), en su forma más básica, se refiere a la diferencia entre los salarios y beneficios medios pagados al hombre y los salarios y beneficios medios pagados a la mujer expresado como porcentaje de los salarios. En términos sencillos: cuánto se paga en salarios y beneficios a una mujer por cada dólar pagado a un hombre.

La brecha salarial de género no significa necesariamente discriminación, la cual es una actividad ilegal. Muchos factores determinan la persistencia de esta brecha. Podría no haber discriminación salarial por género y aún así persistir dicha brecha salarial de género.

Hay maneras distintas de cuantificar esta brecha. Pero sin importar la metodología que se use, los resultados validan consistentemente que la mujer es menos compensada que el hombre a lo largo de todo el espectro ocupacional tomado como un todo.

Master the Production of Virtual Events and Improve Engagement

Have you ever found yourself confidently delivering content for a virtual training session, webinar, or online meeting only to have a participant drop off? Or, have you bravely launched breakout sessions but found that participants got lost on where to go? These scenarios illustrate the convergence of virtual session facilitation and production. While attention is most often paid to the facilitation of virtual sessions, significantly less is devoted to producing them. Producing Virtual Training, Meetings, and Webinars rectifies this gap.

In this book, Kassy LaBorie, go-to training expert and co-author of Interact and Engage! 50 Activities for Virtual Training, Meeting, and Webinars, guides you through the production knowledge and skills a trainer needs to master the production of virtual events while delivering engaging training, productive meetings, and captivating webinars—from how to prepare the technology and content beforehand to how to run everything smoothly. Using examples from and discussing differences among common virtual conferencing platforms such as Adobe Connect, Blackboard, Zoom, Webex, GoTo suite, and Microsoft Teams, LaBorie offers a plan of action for conquering just about any platform and troubleshooting potential problems. This book thoroughly examines typical platform features (audio, webcam, chat, screen share), advanced interaction methods (polling, breakouts, Q&A), and administration and logistics elements (logins, session scheduling, reports).

With production in mind, you’ll also learn how to:

  • Design session materials.
  • Prepare attendees to participate before and during the session.
  • Build successful virtual working relationships with presenters.

Through stories, templates, checklists, and examples, LaBorie shares about her 20-plus years of engaging participants successfully in thousands of virtual events and gets you up to speed in no time.

Drath, K. (2016). Resilient Leadership: Beyond myths and misunderstandings (1st ed.). Routledge.

Ebook de acceso abierto disponible en la base de datos Taylor & Francis,

Intense pressures pose considerable challenges to executives striving to succeed in an environment of increasing volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity. Today’s leaders are constantly fighting to make sense of their changing worlds and to make the right decisions for themselves, their teams and their business. Yet resilience is not a given. It is a dynamic competency that can be cultivated and improved and there is not just one single way to improve the resilience of a manager but actually many different ways on different levels.

The author differentiates between personal resilience, the ’resilience field’ and aspects of resilient leadership so that leaders can grasp how each relates to the other and how each can be used to enhance personal and collective resilience. He lays out concrete, practical approaches for overcoming obstacles to the development of resilience at all levels-extending the capacity of the individual leader, teams, group, and organizations to sustain themselves in the face of adversity.

Leaders can follow the practical steps and strategies, outlined in this guide, to enhance their capacity to withstand hardships and adversity and create an environment in which people within an organization can thrive and grow. The guidance and strategy draws from a model of resilience focused on (a) fundamental human needs as confirmed by neuroscience and (b) the consequences of not meeting these needs. These two pillars of resilience define a leader’s capacity to handle change, conflict, and ‘dysfunctional beliefs’- the barriers and sticking points that undermine a leader’s optimal business performance.
