4 FTSE 100 shares I’d buy in June

first_img Enter Your Email Address Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic…And with so many great companies trading at what look to be ‘discount-bin’ prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.But whether you’re a newbie investor or a seasoned pro, deciding which stocks to add to your shopping list can be daunting prospect during such unprecedented times.Fortunately, The Motley Fool is here to help: our UK Chief Investment Officer and his analyst team have short-listed five companies that they believe STILL boast significant long-term growth prospects despite the global lock-down…You see, here at The Motley Fool we don’t believe “over-trading” is the right path to financial freedom in retirement; instead, we advocate buying and holding (for AT LEAST three to five years) 15 or more quality companies, with shareholder-focused management teams at the helm.That’s why we’re sharing the names of all five of these companies in a special investing report that you can download today for FREE. If you’re 50 or over, we believe these stocks could be a great fit for any well-diversified portfolio, and that you can consider building a position in all five right away. 4 FTSE 100 shares I’d buy in June The FTSE 100 has slipped back below 7,000 points after a short period of optimism. This appears to be due to inflation fears and the ever-present threat of Covid-19. Thankfully, I see a dip as the perfect opportunity to snap up some strong businesses.And I believe there are plenty to choose from. In recent years, Brexit, international trade wars and the pandemic have hurt FTSE 100 shares. While it’s been a challenging time for many, it’s also led companies to streamline, meaning several could emerge over the next few years in a much stronger position. And thanks to the vaccine rollout, I now see light at the end of the tunnel for the FTSE 100 as a whole.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…My favourite FTSE 100 stock picksSo, which businesses do I like the look of? BAE Systems, Diageo, Rentokil, and AstraZeneca (LSE:AZN) all look good, I think.With a long-term investing horizon, I don’t worry too much about intermittent market fluctuations. I prefer to look at the bigger picture when deciding which stocks to buy. And for each of these businesses I see a long and strong future ahead.International relations are precarious, geopolitical headwinds are always there and hacking attempts seem to appear in the news regularly. This tells me defence and national security are sure to remain priorities in the years to come. That’s one reason I like BAE Systems, because it has strong government ties and expertise in this area.Reopening and emerging from the pandemic is likely to encourage socialising, which goes hand-in-hand with alcohol consumption. Therefore, I think Diageo with its impressive portfolio of popular brands is another that should continue to stand strong in the coming years.Then there’s Rentokil. I like this business because hygiene and pest control are two areas of increasing importance considering the damage the pandemic has done. Rentokil has a far-reaching global presence and the ability to solve both these problems. That’s why I’d happily invest in RTO shares.Why I like AstraZenecaFinally, I like AstraZeneca’s future prospects in the pharma sector because health R&D is another key focus for government budgets. AZN sells leading oncology products and as the world increasingly battles cancer, AstraZeneca is in a good position to help. Meanwhile, its Farxiga brand is used to treat type 2 diabetes, certain kinds of heart failure and now chronic kidney failure. These are all health conditions on the rise.The FTSE 100 pharma giant has a price-to-earnings ratio of 46, its dividend yield is 2.5% and earnings per share are 172p. Its Q1 results were excellent, showing clear signs of growth and a rise in revenues.

The AstraZeneca share price is down 21% from its 52-week-high after negative press surrounding its Covid-19 vaccine rollout. I don’t worry about this too much as the vaccine is not a core part of its business.It’s important to keep in mind that all investments carry an element of risk. Each of these companies could see their share prices suffer if they fail to achieve their growth targets or Covid-19 variants cause further havoc in the markets. But these are risks I’m willing to take. I’m looking to buy and hold shares for five to 10 years and I’d feel confident doing that with these four FTSE 100 stocks.

The five resolutions, recommended by the trustees, were previously presented to the pension committee and the Council of General Synod.“Most of the changes relate to compliance with changes in provincial pension law, and some are housekeeping details,” said Poole, of the diocese of Toronto.

It allows for the purchase of an insurance product to cover the liability, and for a church administrator to work with the insurance carrier to manage claimants.Bishop Poole expressed gratitude to the trustees and to Judy Robinson, director of pensions.

La politique d’immigration de Donald Trump force l’Église épiscopale à…

first_img Submit a Press Release de Mary Frances SchjonbergPosted Apr 4, 2017 Bien qu’auparavant scolarisée en sixième année, Ayesh, qui a fui le Gouvernorat d’Idleb en Syrie pour se rendre en Turquie, ne va pas à l’école. Photo : UNICEF/Shehzad Noorani[Episcopal News Service] En 2018, L’Episcopal Migration Ministries (EMM) va diviser par six son réseau de trente-et-un membres affiliés en raison de l’évolution de la politique des États-Unis qui va diminuer de plus de la moitié le nombre de réfugiés se réinstallant dans le pays chaque année.Ces affiliés et les diocèses de l’Église épiscopale dans lesquels ils sont situés, sont les suivants :Refugee One à Chicago dans l’llinois (Diocèse de Chicago).Lutheran Social Services of Northeast Florida à Jacksonville (Diocèse de Floride).Lutheran Social Services of North Dakota à Fargo et Lutheran Social Services of North Dakota à Grand Forks (Diocèse du Dakota du Nord).Ascentria Care Alliance à Concord dans le New Hampshire (Diocèse du New Hampshire).Ascentria Care Alliance à Westfield dans le Massachusetts (Diocèse de l’Ouest du Massachusetts).EMM ne réinstallera pas de réfugiés par l’entremise de ces affiliés pendant l’exercice fédéral 2018 (du 1er octobre 2017 au 30 septembre 2018).Les fermetures prévues sont une disposition douloureuse mais stratégiquement nécessaire, confie le chanoine E. Marquez Stevenson, directeur d’EMM, à Episcopal News Service. Qui plus est, elles arrivent à la suite de deux autres décisions récentes visant à réduire l’empreinte d’EMM, l’une directement liée à l’évolution de la politique gouvernementale concernant les réfugiés et l’autre pas.« C’est douloureux, c’est horrible mais nous espérons – nous prions – que nous ayons pris les bonnes décisions pour la santé du réseau global et pour le bien-être des réfugiés », poursuit-il. « C’est notre souci numéro un ».À la suite des décrets du président Donald Trump sur l’immigration qui réduisent de plus de la moitié le nombre de réfugiés pouvant être réinstallés chaque année dans le pays, le département d’État des États-Unis a émis une directive à l’intention des organismes de réinstallation annonçant au maximum 50 000 admissions de réfugiés au cours du prochain exercice. Le plus récent des deux décrets de Donald Trump se trouve ici.Mark Stevenson explique qu’EMM et les huit autres organismes de réinstallation qui travaillent sous contrat fédéral américain pour réinstaller des réfugiés « étudient la façon de se structurer pour avoir la taille qui convient pour l’exercice 2018 ».Les autres organismes de réinstallation sont Church World Service, Ethiopian Community Development Council, HIAS (auparavant connu sous le nom de Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society), International Rescue Committee, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Migration and Refugee Services et World Relief (selon le droit fédéral, les réfugiés ne peuvent entrer aux États-Unis que sous les auspices d’un de ces organismes).« Nous étudions également comment nous structurer pour rester en bonne santé pour le reste de cette année car une grande partie du financement qui provient du gouvernement fédéral est calculé sur le nombre de réfugiés arrivant aux États-Unis », ajoute-t-il.Ainsi, lorsque les réfugiés ne peuvent pas entrer aux États-Unis, les organismes de réinstallation comme EMM reçoivent beaucoup moins d’argent fédéral que prévu. Cette réduction rend également plus difficile la prestation de services continus aux réfugiés déjà réinstallés aux États-Unis.Les administrateurs de chacun des neuf organismes sont forcés de faire des choix pour préserver l’intégrité du réseau d’organismes et d’affiliés de la meilleure manière pour les réfugiés.« Il est important que nous ayons un système permettant de réinstaller les réfugiés là où ils sont en sécurité, où c’est abordable, où l’occasion leur est donnée de prospérer en tant que nouveaux Américains », explique Mark Stevenson.En gardant ceci à l’esprit, dit-il, chaque organisme fait des choix en fonction de là où il opère à présent, où il opère en partenariat avec d’autres organismes et où, compte tenu des nationalités prévues des réfugiés futurs, d’anciens réfugiés ont formé des communautés qui peuvent aider les nouveaux venus.« Nous ne voulons pas abandonner une communauté complètement à son sort », poursuit Mark Stevenson.Le chanoine E. Mark Stevenson et le personnel national d’Episcopal Migration Ministries se sont retrouvés lors d’une retraite à l’Episcopal Church Center de New York alors qu’EMM et les huit autres organismes de réinstallation des États-Unis étaient confrontés à des réductions budgétaires en raison de la politique des États-Unis en matière d’admission de réfugiés. Photo : EMM via FacebookPériode inquiétante pour la réinstallation des réfugiésLes dernières sept semaines et demie ont été difficiles et imprévisibles pour les neuf organismes de réinstallation.Le 27 janvier, le décret initial de Donald Trump a suspendu l’entrée des réfugiés aux États-Unis pour au moins 120 jours. Le décret indiquait également que lorsque l’administration lèverait l’interdiction, d’autres restrictions seraient imposées aux réfugiés potentiels de sept pays à majorité musulmane. Donald Trump a en outre déclaré qu’une fois l’interdiction levée, il n’autoriserait que 50 000 réfugiés à entrer aux États-Unis au lieu des 110 000 prévus pour l’exercice. Selon le droit fédéral, le président décide chaque année du nombre maximum de réfugiés qui seront autorisés à se réinstaller aux États-Unis. Les neuf organismes avaient tous adaptés leurs personnel et bureaux pour réinstaller un bien plus grand nombre de réfugiés.Le 6 février, James Robart, juge de District des États-Unis à Seattle a temporairement bloqué la mesure prise par Donald Trump, laissant le Programme d’admission des réfugiés du Département d’État dans l’incertitude. Donald Trump a émis son deuxième décret présidentiel le 6 mars, retirant l’Irak de la liste des sept pays et reformulant son premier décret pour tenter d’éviter de nouvelles allégations de violation de la garantie de liberté religieuse qui figure dans la Constitution des États-Unis. Le nouveau décret maintient la réduction du nombre de réfugiés qui peuvent entrer aux États-Unis une fois que l’activité reprend.Le décret du 6 mars est en suspens tandis que les juges de district fédéraux examinent les contestations. Le 29 mars, Derrick Watson, juge de district des États-Unis à Hawaï a bloqué le décret présidentiel pour une période plus longue. Derrick Watson avait auparavant imposé un jugement provisoire. La décision reste en vigueur jusqu’à ce que Derrick Watson en décide autrement, y compris au cours d’une procédure en appel déposée le jour suivant par l’administration Trump.Le gouvernement a également fait appel de la décision d’un juge fédéral du Maryland qui a bloqué le décret. Et James Robart, le juge de district fédéral de l’État de Washington, n’a pas encore statué sur les contestations du deuxième décret présidentiel.Le terme « réfugié » a un sens juridique spécifique. Le Haut Commissariat des Nations Unies pour les réfugiés (UNHCR) désigne une personne en tant que « réfugiée » si elle fuit la persécution, la guerre ou la violence. Ces personnes présentent une demande de désignation et sont considérées de façon distincte des immigrés. Elles obtiennent la désignation de réfugiées une fois que l’UNHCR a vérifié leur demande. Episcopal Migration Ministries réinstalle les réfugiés qui ont reçu la désignation de l’ONU, sont envoyés par l’ONU aux États-Unis et subissent un processus de vérification des États-Unis.L’impact du décret présidentiel sur les résultats d’EMM est particulièrement lourd car EMM est un ministère unique de l’Église épiscopale, tant sur le plan structurel que fiscal. Tout en n’étant pas constitué en société séparée comme l’est Episcopal Relief & Development, EMM reçoit très peu d’argent du budget général de l’église, recevant au lieu de cela 99,5 % de son financement du gouvernement fédéral. Son bureau principal est sis au sein de l’Episcopal Church Center à New York.Mark Stevenson indique que 90 % de l’argent du contrat va directement à la réinstallation des réfugiés. EMM retient environ 2 millions de dollars pour ses coûts administratifs, y compris tous les salaires du personnel national. Tout argent inutilisé est reversé au gouvernement.Les affiliés reçoivent de l’argent des contrats fédéraux par l’intermédiaire d’EMM et sont ainsi confrontés à d’importantes réductions budgétaires lorsqu’aucun réfugié n’entre dans le pays. Le réseau d’EMM est une combinaison de trois types d’affiliés. Deux sont essentiellement des succursales d’EMM. Les autres sont des structures indépendantes qui travaillent uniquement avec EMM ou avec EMM et Church World Service et/ou Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service.Les affiliés utilisent des réserves de trésorerie, des collectes de fonds et tout appui qu’EMM peut leur donner pour payer leurs salariés et couvrir les loyers et autres charges d’exploitation. Le Conseil exécutif de l’Église est convenu en février de donner à EMM 500 000 dollars pour l’aider pour l’exercice 2017. L’organisme lui-même a récemment annoncé une campagne de collecte de fonds pour combler l’écart de financement.Au cours de l’exercice 2016, soit du 1er octobre 2015 au 30 septembre 2016, EMM a réinstallé aux États-Unis 5 762 réfugiés provenant de 35 pays, notamment de la République démocratique du Congo, de la Birmanie, de l’Afghanistan et de la Syrie. Pour l’exercice en cours, EMM a déjà accueilli 2 766 réfugiés et avait prévu de réinstaller 6 175 personnes jusqu’à ce que Donald Trump signe son décret le 27 janvier. Au total, chacun des neuf organismes a déjà réinstallé environ 38 000 réfugiés pour l’exercice en cours, explique Mark Stevenson.Depuis le changement de politique de l’administration Trump, EMM a réduit son personnel national de base de 22 % du fait de la réduction du financement fédéral. EMM a annoncé en février qu’il fermerait le bureau qu’il avait à Miami depuis plus de 30 ans, non pas en raison des décisions de l’administration Trump mais du fait des changements décidés par l’ancien Président Barack Obama en ce qui concerne la politique des États-Unis vis-à-vis des migrants cubains.La division par six du réseau d’affiliés et la fermeture du bureau de Miami représentent une réduction de 23 % du réseau, poursuit Mark Stevenson. « Nous espérons que ce sera suffisant », ajoute-t-il.Certains des neuf autres organismes de réinstallation ont déjà annoncé leurs décisions. World Relief a déclaré à la mi-février qu’il  lui faudrait licencier plus de 140 membres de son personnel et fermer ses bureaux de Boise (État de l’Idaho), Columbus (État de l’Ohio), Miami, Nashville (État du Tennessee) et Glen Burnie (État du Maryland).Church World Service a lancé une campagne de collecte de fonds d’un million de dollars.L’autre réalité, explique Mark Stevenson, est que le nombre réduit de réfugiés et les décisions que les organismes doivent prendre vont nuire à l’économie des villes des affiliés. Les propriétaires qui louent aux réfugiés, les employeurs qui les embauchent et les professeurs de langue, le personnel médical, les employés des écoles qui les aident à s’intégrer dans la société américaine vont perdre de l’argent ou des emplois, prédit Mark Stevenson.« Nous prenons les meilleures décisions stratégiques que nous pouvons en fonction des informations dont nous disposons », conclut-il. « Ainsi, compte tenu des informations que nous avons maintenant et en partant de l’hypothèse que les neuf organismes de réinstallation continuent tous de travailler, nous croyons que cet ajustement de la taille de notre réseau nous positionnera correctement et nous permettra d’être un réseau sain de réinstallation des réfugiés lorsque prend fin la suspension et pour l’exercice 2018 ».Entretemps, Rebecca Linder Blachly, directrice des relations avec le gouvernement de l’Église épiscopale a déclaré à ENS que son bureau continuerait à aider ceux de l’administration qui décideront si l’interdiction peut être levée après 120 jours à « faire confiance au bon processus que nous avons mis en place » pour la réinstallation des réfugiés.Le  communiqué de presse officiel concernant la réduction se trouve ici.– La révérende Mary Frances Schjonberg est rédacteur et journaliste pour l’Episcopal News Service.

O’Reilly’s charitable donations queried

first_imgMr O’Brien also has a major philanthropic profile, having chaired the Irish Special Olympics board and provided funding for the establishment of a human rights body. Tagged with: Ireland Howard Lake | 18 June 2007 | News Charitable donations made by Independent News & Media have become embroiled in a dispute between that company’s chief executive, Tony O’Reilly, and fellow billionaire, Dennis O’Brien. Newspaper reports suggest that Mr O’Brien is in a battle to take over the company, in which the O’Reilly family has a significant holding. Mr O’Brien sent a letter to IN&M asking for details of the company’s charitable donations made in the name of Mr O’Reilly and his family in the last five years. The company replied that donations were not made to colleges UCD, TCD or DCU, which have received major gifts in the O’Reilly name, but confirmed that £1 million from the company has been pledged annually for Queen’s University’s O’Reilly library from 2007 to 2010. The company also disclosed that the average annual worldwide donations by the company in the last five years is ‚€700,000. Mr O’Brien, who has built up a significant stake in IN&M, has sent a number of letters questioning the governance of the company.

Back to reality: Frogs embarrassed in Morgantown for second-straight time

first_img + posts Twitter Twitter Colin Posthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/colin-post/ Linkedin Facebook Colin Posthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/colin-post/ printThe last time TCU football traveled to Morgantown, West Virginia, was Nov. 10, 2018. That day, the Frogs saw their worst loss in the Gary Patterson era, falling 47-10 to the Mountaineers.On Saturday, Patterson’s team made their return to Milan Puskar Stadium, riding two-straight wins and looking to gain serious momentum in a season that once looked lost.Nevertheless, like two years ago, TCU looked outmatched by West Virginia. The Frogs gained just 295 yards of offense and committed two turnovers en route to a 24-6 trouncing against the Mountaineers. “Probably the best mood I could say is probably just hungry, just tired of just coming up short, just tired of losing,” safety Tre Moehrig said. “Just kind of trying to get back on that winning side again.”West Virginia gained 392 yards of offense themselves, often moving the ball on the back of Leddie Brown. The running back ran all over TCU, stiff-arming defenders and breaking tackles on his way to 156 yards on an average of 6.5 yards per carry.Nov 14, 2020; Morgantown, West Virginia, USA; West Virginia Mountaineers running back Leddie Brown (4) runs the ball during the fourth quarter against the TCU Horned Frogs at Mountaineer Field at Milan Puskar Stadium. (Photo courtesy of Ben Queen/USA TODAY Sports)“We let him [Brown] cut out the back end about three times,” Patterson said. “All of his three big runs came out the back where our guys over pursue. We can’t do that.”In the passing game, Mountaineers quarterback Jarret Doege made use of stellar protection by his offensive line, going 19-for-26 with 212 yards and three scores (two passing, one rushing). “Great quarterback,” Moehrig said of Doege. “We just have to come up and make plays when we need to. That’s pretty much the bottom line. He was making some throws that were really pretty accurate.”Right away, Doege and Brown had announced to the 11,111 in attendance they would be hard to stop. The two led the Mountaineers 99 yards down the field on the first drive, which was capped off by a one-yard rushing touchdown by Doege.The quarterback-running back duo had accounted for 84 of West Virginia’s yards on the scoring drive.“I mean, what would you like if someone took your girl? It feels about the same way,” Patterson said about giving up the early drive. “Most of it was all our fault, to be honest with you.”Doege’s passing touchdowns both came on deep balls to receiver T.J. Simmons, who entered the game with zero receiving touchdowns on the year. The redshirt senior finished with four catches for a game-high 90 yards along with the two house calls.Part of West Virginia’s passing success can be credited to a depleted TCU secondary, which lost even more depth in the second quarter when safety Ar’Darius Washington was helped off after taking a blow to the head.Patterson said after the game Washington should be “fine.”For the third-straight game, TCU quarterback Max Duggan struggled to throw the ball well. The sophomore finished 16-for-29 with just 161 yards and an interception.In the first four games of the year, Duggan completed 70% of his passes and topped 200 yards three times. In his last three games, the young signal-caller has completed just 55% of his passes and thrown under 200 yards each time.“They’re good on defense,” Patterson said. “The bottom line is we dropped a couple passes. You can’t put yourself behind the chains. You’ve got to be able to score points in the red zone.”Near the beginning of the fourth quarter, TCU trailed by just 11 and looked to make the game competitive, forcing a West Virginia punt. Moehrig, returning in the place of the injured Derius Davis, then muffed the punt to give the ball right back to the Mountaineers.“I practice catching punts pretty much daily, every other day,” Moehrig said. “I can’t say much about that. That one was just on me. Unfortunately, I just dropped the ball.”West Virginia then scored two plays later on a 38-yard pass to Simmons to take a 24-6 lead they would not see diminished.Nov 14, 2020; Morgantown, West Virginia, USA; West Virginia Mountaineers wide receiver T.J. Simmons (1) catches a touchdown pass during the second quarter against the TCU Horned Frogs at Mountaineer Field at Milan Puskar Stadium.

Duggan then made his worst read of the day, throwing it right to safety Tykee Smith, who returned the interception 42 yards to put the nails in the coffin for the Frogs.The Frogs have now been outscored 71-16 in their last two trips to Morgantown. They fall to 3-4 with the loss.“I think that just starts with our leadership, just getting everybody to get their heads up and to come to practice with the mindset of, ‘We’ve got to get better,’” Moehrig said. “Even if it’s something small, we just have to get better at something every day.” TCU will get the next two weeks to re-group, as they have a bye next Saturday. The Frogs will return to action Saturday, Nov. 28 in Lawrence for a matchup with Kansas. Colin Post is a Sports Broadcasting and Journalism double-major from Houston, Texas.

Radical digital conveyancing initiative launched by Land Registry

first_imgA new government initiative to encourage conveyancing firms to use services that confirm to a new digital standard when verifying a vendor’s identity has been launched by HM Land Registry.Its ground-breaking Digital Identity Standard, which is optional but is being heavily plugged by civil servants, has been created following extensive property industry consultations including with key estate agency representatives.The Digital Identity Standard establishes for the first time the step-by-step rules for identity verification and will enable it be done without the need to meet physically, for all clients whether residential or commercial.It also provides enhanced security by requiring the use of smartphones to extract encrypted information contained within the chips of documents such as passports.Land Registry chief Mike Harlow (pictured), says: Proving your identity when buying or selling your property can be a pain. But of course, it is essential to the security of such high value transactions. This new standard for ‘digital biometric identity checking’ marks an exciting milestone towards a truly digital conveyancing process.”By using biometric tech, he says, identity checking will reduce the risk of fraud and speed up and make transactions easier.The Land Registry is also guaranteeing that they will not seek recourse against conveyancers who meet the new standard, should the vendor or buyer subsequently be found to be a fraudster.The initiative is being aligned with another government initiative, the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport ‘trust framework’ which is set to role out digital identity use across the economy.Read the new practice guide.mike Harlow Land Registry conveyancing March 15, 2021Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

CNO Addresses Navy Diversity at NNOA

first_img View post tag: NNOA View post tag: Diversity View post tag: usa US Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm. Jonathan Greenert spoke to sea service officers at the 42nd National Naval Officer Association (NNOA) Professional Development and Training Conference held in Quantico, Va., July 10. View post tag: CNO View post tag: Addresses During Greenert’s remarks he highlighted how Sailors underwrite what the Navy does, an update on how he sees diversity in the different communities and leadership advice.This is Greenert’s third year addressing NNOA, an organization which promotes diversity within the Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard. The conference includes educational and professional development workshops, designed to enhance the professional awareness of attendees on recruitment, mentorship and other issues affecting the sea service. Greenert spoke twice during the conference, first to a joint session and then after lunch to a Navy specific group.“We want to nurture people, to join and stay, which are two very different goals,” said Greenert. “We’ve got to have role models, like Adm. Michelle Howard.”The first female four star admiral, Adm. Michelle Howard assumed office as Greenert’s Vice Chief of Naval Operations last week. Greenert has long been an advocate of diversity in the Navy. During his tenure as CNO there have been radical changes to the opportunities for women.Speaking about diversity across the Navy, Greenert said the overall numbers are good but the Navy should not declare victory. He highlighted how well the different occupational communities are doing and also provided statistics to back up progress.“We’re making progress but can do better to bring forward a diverse officer corps that can lead and develop a diverse Navy,” said Greenert.Greenert also highlighted that progress was uneven across the different communities.“We must ensure there are no barriers to career progress,” said Greenert. “Communities must continuously assess themselves.”Despite all the recent progress in promoting diversity and inclusion, Greenert says there is work yet to do.“It is our goal that every ship, work center, community and rank is representative of our nation’s diversity,” said Greenert. It is an incredibly powerful and strategic message we send to the international community when we represent ourselves as a diverse force, said Greenert.Following the joint session, Greenert took questions and engaged in a dialogue with Navy personnel attending the conference at an All Hands Call. The discussion touched on ethics, leadership, command climate and fitness.“We all play a role in command climate – It sets a sense of being,” said Greenert to the officers in attendance. Leadership is defining your group’s sense of reality, he said. “Be pragmatic and optimistic and your attitude will be infectious.”[mappress]Press Release, July 11, 2014; Image: US Navy View post tag: americas July 11, 2014center_img Back to overview,Home naval-today CNO Addresses Navy Diversity at NNOA CNO Addresses Navy Diversity at NNOA View post tag: News by topic Authorities View post tag: Naval View post tag: Navy Share this articlelast_img read more
