Tax Reform Under the Trump Administration

US tax reform or changes have been discussed for years. Now we have a unified political environment in both the executive and legislative branches of government. What are the ideas we can expect from them? What will be the impact? Comments have already been made about a border tax on imports. How will that work? What will be the likely impact on trade? What changes will impact individuals? Will taxes really be cut for the middle class?

Is the Glass Ceiling Dented, Cracked, Broken, or Firmly in Place?

More women are assuming leadership positions as CEOs of companies, board members and at all levels of government. But objectively, how far have we really come and what are the challenges that remain? How are companies and individuals meeting those challenges? What should all business people - men and women - be doing to achieve success in their profession? How do women and any leaders drive change and results from various perspectives within an organization? How can we successfully manage work-life balance issues? What policies should companies be employing to assure opportunities are open to qualified leaders? What legal changes need to be made to employment laws? How do professionals help each other in advancing their achievement?

The Future of Job Displacement and Worker Protection in the United States

Technology, globalization and global transportation have, and will continue, to impact jobs and the nature of work in the United States. Jobs that provided good middle class incomes, in some cases, have moved to other countries and in many cases have been totally replaced by technology. Technology isn’t slowing down and while political change may impact global trade the long term trends will continue. What should we do about this? How do we support those impacted by this? Do we need a minimum government supplied income?  Or is this wave of change going to slow to a more manageable level where new jobs will be created fast enough to offset this.
