Sean G. Smith's curator insight, July 21, 2013 7:25 PM

This is such an awesome, and sort of comical, article. It just goes to show that trends and fashions, of all type, can change almost instantly. This new era of social media and technological trends tends to leave marketing and public relations specialists in a bit of a crunch. This article gives examples of phrases that may have once been "in" and popular that are now not so hot. I think that one very big point was made in this article which really drew me in. 

"Diversity Awareness" is an absolute detrimental part of any message or campaign that goes out into the general public. People will take offense to ANYTHING in this day and age, and will most likely try to screw your company big time. It takes time and research, but I think that it's completely worth it. You know who you are talking to and referring to, without offending anyone (hopefully).

Mya Reyes's insight:

It's very important for us all to see these examples of corporate leaders who are out in the workplace and enjoying very successful careers.  It is an inspiration to corporations who may not have created the most nurturing environment for their employees and hopefully will encourage them to make the changes necessary to allow EVERYONE to be their best 'me' possible.
