Oh, hello! Welcome back to the real world, i.e. the work week after a long weekend.
Our stories over the past week have answered many questions (some more obscure than others), such as: What healing material do researchers use to patch over the burns of animals caught in wildfires? What does the A in STEAM stand for? What’s one factor that led an artisan flour business to receive over $115,000 in investment? How do we go beyond inclusion and diversity to create more meaningful equity in the workplace?
The answers to which are: tilapia skin, art, small business bonds and lastly — by intentionally creating an atmosphere of belonging. Need a little more context? Here’s the latest:
The Metro EDGE Young Professional of the Year shares her thoughts on equity in our latest Getting to Know; Capital Region researchers, veterinarians and advocates are finding innovative ways to rehabilitate wildlife burned by California’s raging wildfires; our editor-at-large checks in with Capay Mills on its recent entry into an investment marketplace; proponents of STEAM programs advocate for the arts as a builder of emotional intelligence, social awareness and even problem-solving capabilities.

Sourdough is having a moment, and so is artisan flour business Capay Mills, thanks to an influx of small business bonds.
While STEM education incorporates science, technology,
engineering and math, STEAM adds arts into the mix. Proponents of
STEAM say it develops creativity that bridges the sciences with
the development of personal expression, emotional intelligence
and social awareness: the human factors that define how we relate
to the world.
