We hope you enjoyed a nice Mother’s Day celebrating the beautiful gift of motherhood with friends and family!

Mother’s Day officially launched the start of this year’s National Women’s Health Week, May 9th – May 15th. This annual event raises awareness about the top physical and mental health issues affecting women and how women can take steps to a healthier lifestyle. An Infographic on DNAWeekly provides a quick statistical snapshot of women’s health in the US as well as tips on how anyone can get involved to raise awareness.

One factor that continues to impact health is sleep or the lack thereof. Women in Electronics Life Balance Series addresses the topic this Thursday with Josiane Broussard, PhD.

In early 2020, 42% of employees described themselves as burnt-out. Today that percentage has jumped to 72% with nearly 40% struggling with burnout as a top job stressor. In this weekly Q&A roundup with Katica Roy, is it possible DEI programs are contributing to the problem?
