There remains a severe shortage of skilled ICT professionals across Europe, and there is a clear solution to this – we must encourage girls to pursue their talents in STEM subjects,” said Mr Kelly, a former teacher.Women’s voices are sorely lacking in the world of technology, which causes significant loss on all fronts – economic, societal and human capital, according to MEP Kelly.As part of EU Code Week and the European Week of Action for Girls, Mr Kelly hosted the Greenlight for Girls group in the European Parliament for the Generation Code exhibition yesterday (Tuesday).“Greenlight for Girls seeks to promote inclusive education on STEM subjects and encourage girls to pursue studies in these fields.“Coding is an increasingly important skill that girls are still not being encouraged to engage in. There is a significant gender gap among technology experts, while 40pc of enterprises recruiting ICT specialists report difficulties in getting qualified people.“We need to be equipping young women with the necessary computing skills and encourage their studies in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM),” Mr Kelly underlined.

Coalition Pushes for Stricter Wall Street Regulation

first_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago  Print This Post Subscribe While Republicans have long claimed that the financial system in the United States have been severely overregulated since the crisis, a group of progressives who believe that Wall Street is not regulated enough has organized a coalition in hopes of getting stricter rules passed.Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts), the architect of the controversial Consumer Financial Protection Bureau that came from the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010—the focal point of Republicans’ complaints of financial industry overregulation—led the coalition on Tuesday, according to Think Progress. Also joining in were Reps. Keith Ellison (D-Minnesota) and Nydia Velasquez (D-New York) and various labor leaders, civil rights groups, and community groups.Tuesday’s rally comes just one week after presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump announced that he would overhaul Dodd-Frank if he is elected president.According to Warren, the coalition is operating on two key principals—“No cheating and no pushing the risks on taxpayers”—the coalition is making five key demands:Break up the largest banksEnsure consumer access to non-predatory banking productsEnd the carried interest tax loophole allowing hedge fund managers to use a tax break for investment income on income they make at workRein in executive bonusesImpose a financial transaction taxIn her address on Tuesday, Warren noted some of the accomplishments of Dodd-Frank—namely the more than $10 billion the CFPB has returned to consumers that the Bureau has deemed to have been harmed by predatory financial practices. But she said there is more to be done.“We have made a lot of progress under the Dodd-Frank financial reforms,” she said. “But we’ve also got a lot more to do.”Notably, Warren called for the breaking up of the country’s largest banks, because she believes that Dodd-Frank did not end “Too Big to Fail” as it professed to do.The report noted that the point of the coalition is not just to lay out policy but to combine forces in hopes of getting that policy passed. Warren pointed out that she believes it will not be an easy fight, but “we didn’t take on this fight because it’s easy, we took on this fight because it’s right.” May 24, 2016 1,128 Views Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Coalition Pushes for Stricter Wall Street Regulation Previous: ‘Survivor Bill of Rights’ is Gaining Traction Next: Fairholme: Status Quo Makes Another Bailout ‘Inevitable’ Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Dodd-Frank Elizabeth Warren Financial Industry Regulation Wall Street 2016-05-24 Brian Honeacenter_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Related Articles The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago About Author: Brian Honea Home / Daily Dose / Coalition Pushes for Stricter Wall Street Regulation Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.
