This week, staff writer Molly Nolan looks at issues of gender equity in the corporate world and what UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business is doing to try to combat them.

With all that’s been going on in the world, staff writer Grace Vogel sat down with campus psychology professor Aaron Fisher to shed light on how students are parsing through everything.

Meanwhile, staff writer Patrick Lee points out the toxicity of the campus’s competitive environment and provides advice from Dale Carnegie’s 1936 self-help book that we could use in our interactions with each other instead.

Staff writers Raina Yang and Brianna Brann get personal by talking about being an international student and Latino-American, respectively.

And staff writer Sean Tseng poses questions about the sincerity of smiles through her short story, while staff writer Rachel Gregory’s poem simultaneously expresses her appreciation for her dog and questions the social restrictions that both humans and domesticated animals are bound by.

We hope this collection of stories for this week offers you some food for thought.

— Ericka Shin and Gibson Chu
