Read Full Story Harvard Business School (HBS) and the Executive Leadership Council (ELC) announced they have entered into a collaboration to provide enhanced programming opportunities for ELC scholarship recipients (ELC Scholars) and executive education opportunities for the most senior Black executives in corporate America. The ELC’s mission, to open channels of opportunity for Black executives to positively impact business and communities, aligns well with the goals of the recently announced HBS Action Plan for Racial Equity, a plan to advance racial equity both within and beyond the School.“HBS must do more to create opportunities for Black talent to succeed and take up leadership roles,” said HBS Dean Nitin Nohria. “The Executive Leadership Council has demonstrated the ability to create these opportunities and harness the power of Black talent. Together, we can create a tremendous and unique opportunity for ELC scholarship recipients, ELC members, and the HBS community.”“The ELC looks forward to launching this unique collaboration with HBS. It is an advantage to be able to provide another development opportunity for our ELC Scholars,” said Crystal E. Ashby, ELC Interim President and CEO. “Adding this component will enrich their overall experience, providing financial support, networking and education as benefits for the Scholars. We are energized to offer executive education opportunities for our members, and to do so with one of the most highly-regarded academic institutions around the world.”The collaboration will focus on three main areas: support for ELC Scholars, Executive Education, and MBA programming and case development.Building the pipeline of Black business leaders for the futureThe mission of The ELC’s Scholars program is to build a pipeline of Black corporate talent by supporting the academic achievement and development of Black undergraduate and graduate students. HBS will provide financial support to the student scholarship program and assist in identifying potential internship opportunities for ELC Scholars at HBS, partner companies, and alumni-led organizations.Cultivating high-potential executive leadersLeveraging the School’s existing Executive Education platform, the two organizations will work together to create a course customized for ELC members, while also providing them with access to existing HBS Executive Education courses and programs, which offer fully immersive and transformational living-learning experiences, networking opportunities with executives from around the world, and the opportunity to engage in programs led by HBS faculty.Infusing diversity into the MBA curriculumA key component of the HBS Racial Equity plan is the development of additional cases featuring Black protagonists. HBS and ELC will work together to identify potential topics and individuals to feature in cases from the more than 800 current and former Black CEOs, senior executives and board directors at Fortune 1000 and Global 500 companies, and entrepreneurs at top-tier firms comprising ELC’s membership.
Cairns real estate: Earlville classic Queenslander up for auction for first time in its 60-year history
Cairns and Hinterland Hospital and Health Service chairman Clive Skarott with former real estate agent Tony Williamson. PICTURE: STEWART MCLEANMore from newsCairns home ticks popular internet search terms2 days agoTen auction results from ‘active’ weekend in Cairns2 days agoHe said the only changes to the house were when the roof was changed and the toilet was moved to an internal one. “It’s a very open and breezy home and Dad liked sitting on the front patio with Mum for a beer. Earlville is a great area to live in, it’s close to everything you need,” he said. This house features classic timber flooring, currently under carpets and vinyl, but ready to be polished and restored. The spacious living area features casement windows and high ceilings and all three bedrooms offer plenty of space.Sitting on an 875sq m block, downstairs is fully enclosed, allowing for two cars, but there is a huge undercover carport at the back for another two vehicles or a caravan. It is within minutes of Stockland Shopping Centre, schools, sporting facilities and social clubs. With amazing potential to reap the rewards, this property is in a great position and will be snapped up quickly. The auction will be held on June 9 at 5.30pm at the Whitfield Chapel, 47 Heavey Crescent, Whitfield. Prominent Cairns businessman Clive Skarott grew up at 7 Gordon St, Earlville which will be auctioned on June 9.QUEENSLANDER home enthusiasts will love this rare three-bedroom home on a large lot with a backyard, located in a bustling central Cairns suburb. There’s not many homes on the market like 7 Gordon St, Earlville, as urban streets and lifestyles become confined to modern or renovated homes, on smaller blocks. But this classic Queenslander stands tall in its original glory, with only minimal work on it since it was completed in 1960. It has managed to sustain its originality, because after 60 years, it is only now entering the market for the first time, after remaining in the hands of one clan for six decades – the Skarott family. Prominent Cairns businessman Clive Skarott grew up at 7 Gordon St, Earlville which will be auctioned on June 9.Prominent Cairns businessman and current chairman of the Cairns and Hinterland Hospital and Health board Clive Skarott remembers moving into the property as a 17-year-old. “Mum and Dad bought it in November 1959 and moved in February 1960,” Mr Skarott said.“It’s definitely a big allotment compared to what’s out there, and it took a while to mow the lawn.“There were four children and Mum and Dad. As we all started buying cars, there was enough room there for all of us. “Dad was a motor mechanic at Irelands and I remember we had enough room for him to work on our cars on the weekends.”
UK gambling adopts toughest online advertising code to protect underage audiences August 27, 2020 Share Submit The Advertising Standards Agency (ASA) has sanctioned gaming operators over the publication of adverts that could specifically appeal to children.The complaints were made by the campaign group, Fairer Gambling relating to promotions by Fun88.co.uk, Letou.co.uk and ProgressPlay owned m88.com.Three of the complaints were in regards to m88 and were about Fairytale Legends Red Riding Hood, Fairytale Legends Hansel and Gretel, as well as Fairies Forest.The ASA cited part of its decision for upholding the complaints was because the games were available to play on demo mode before signing into the site. However, moving forward as part of its response m88.com ceased the availability of demo mode on the games without going through age verification checks and a sign in process.Further responding, m88.com stated that it was part of its policy that prior to launching any game on their website, the game and its graphics were thoroughly reviewed in order to ensure that there was nothing within it that was likely to have particular appeal to children.The group also stated that addressing all responsible gambling issues with their business partners was an essential and substantial part of their commercial agreement, and included ensuring that ads for their games would not have particular appeal to children. Any breach of that policy, authorised m88.com to terminate the agreement with their business partners.Although the ASA welcomed the response of m88.com, it also deemed that “The ads must not appear again in their current form. We told m88.com to ensure that their gambling ads did not have particular appeal to under-18s.”Also feeling the wrath of the ASA for a similar offence was both Fun88.co.uk and www.letou.co.uk, with the campaign group Fairer Gambling once again complaining that the site had gambling content that could be of a specific appeal to children.A total of eight complaints were received about the operators, with both emphasising that the demo version of the games were only available after the consumer had logged into the site.In conclusion, the ASA upheld six of the eight complaints ruling that they must be removed from the site as they had a specific appeal to youths and appeared on unrestricted parts of the site.

With ‘burden’ of secrecy lifted, USA’s Ali Krieger, Ashlyn Harris ready for unlikely World Cup experience together
But the reward for that struggle has become clear: a World Cup experience together that so few couples will ever get to share.“It feels so good and it feels so light,” Harris said. 🔗A post shared by ashlynharris24 (@ashlynharris24) on May 20, 2019 at 7:54am PDTLess than a month later, that unlikely call from Ellis did come for Krieger.After two years away from the team, Krieger was back with the U.S. one month ahead of the World Cup roster being named. Plucked out of the wilderness, Krieger all of a sudden had a real chance to impress in the team’s final games before the squad for France was named.Krieger took that chance, earning a World Cup roster spot that would have seemed nearly impossible only a couple of months prior.“She absolutely deserves to be here,” Harris said. “This isn’t a gift for her. This isn’t, ‘Oh because she’s a veteran player.’“She deserves to be here, she’s an unbelievable teammate and person and fiance and all these great things, and that’s just a testament to the person she is and the strength that she carries.”Krieger’s spot on the roster means as much, if not more to Harris, who was there with her every step of the way as she continued to cling on to some shred of hope.“I know a lot of people didn’t get to see how hard it was for her – you can only imagine,” Harris said.“I think the last two years have probably been the hardest time in her life, and, quite frankly, mine.” View this post on Instagram At the U.S. women’s national team media day last month, Megan Rapinoe was asked if her girlfriend, pro basketball player Sue Bird, would be joining her at the World Cup in France.Carli Lloyd was also quizzed about her husband’s attendance, and several other USWNT players were asked the same question about their significant others making the trip to Europe. There were a range of answers. Rapinoe said Bird might be able to join for the latter stages. Lloyd was unsure if her husband would make it. Their other halves, of course, all have their own lives in the U.S., with their own commitments to meet.For two USWNT players though, the answer was much less murky. Goalkeeper Ashlyn Harris and defender Ali Krieger, who went public with their relationship in March and announced their engagement, will be there together every step of the way.“This is such a cool journey and we’re really taking it in to be able to say we’re doing this together,” Harris, the team’s backup goalkeeper, said.Harris spoke with a carefree nature, reiterating several times how happy she and her fiance were. When examining the pair’s journey over the past several months, it’s easy to see why Harris felt so upbeat.Just three months ago, the relationship between Harris and Krieger was still an open secret. While the pair kept their status hidden from public view, Krieger struggled with an unfathomable exile from the USWNT that was nearing two years.“I’d be so emotional and so tough at times to be around because I was so angry at times and just really struggling,” Krieger admitted.All the while though, the team’s starting right back at the 2015 World Cup continued to work out daily, hoping that an increasingly unlikely call from U.S. head coach Jill Ellis would come.“What people don’t realize is when she was left off roster after roster after roster, she still woke up at 8 a.m. with me to grind and to push herself,” Harris said.“She had no light at the end of the tunnel, because nothing was guaranteed for her.”In March, things began to change for the couple.Krieger and Harris, who are also teammates at the club level with the Orlando Pride, went public with their relationship and announced their engagement in an article in People magazine.

Now that it’s out there and it’s open we can just genuinely be ourselves and be the best version of ourselves for our teammates and for our family and for each other.”Krieger, 34 and Harris, 33, will try to soak up every moment together over their upcoming journey, knowing that this World Cup will likely be a once-in-a-lifetime event for them.“It’s really good for us to share this,” Krieger said, “because I’m pretty sure this is our last big tournament together.”
