Diversity mentoring : One of the top ways to innovate is by bringing in new ideas from senior employees and leaders from underrepresented groups (., women, ethnic minorities, etc.). Who is an underrepresented group depends on the industry sector and country. In many Western countries, women and ethnic minorities are significantly underrepresented in executive positions and boards of directors. In some traditionally gender segregated occupations, such as education and nursing , however, women may be the dominant gender in the workforce. Mentors from underrepresented groups can empower employees from underrepresented groups to increase their confidence to take on higher-responsibility tasks and prepare for leadership roles. By developing employees from diverse groups, this can give the organization access to new ideas, new ways of looking at problems, and new perspectives. This also brings cultural awareness and intercultural dialogue into the workplace.
Competitive cheerleading is scored subjectively based on components including, but not limited to, the cheer itself, dance/choreography, pyramids , stunting , and tumbling . In order to prevent injuries, there are certain rules that cheerleading teams have to follow according to their level (high school, all-star, or college). According to the Encyclopedia of Sports Medicine, there are two purposes of cheerleading - to cheer on the sidelines for other athletes, and to be a "highly skilled competing athlete."

Alabama athletes receive help
The April skies over Tuscaloosa, Ala., transformed from dark to menacing in a matter of moments last year. From them, a hulking monster crept downwards, slowly meandering through the town while spinning at 200 miles-per-hour. The tornado dwarfed Alabama’s 101,821-seat Bryant-Denny Stadium, decimating the houses and apartments around the iconic venue. Once the sky relented, the structures many student-athletes called home were nothing more than scattershot piles of brick and wood – their belongings, their keepsakes, lost to the wind.
