The American electorate will head to the ballot box in November to elect a new president and decide which party or parties will control the 115th Congress. Key workplace issues before Congress in this election season include efforts to amend the Affordable Care Act, new workplace flexibility options and initiatives to address pay equity, to name a few. The Obama administration is also trying to put the finishing touches on its workplace regulatory legacy with changes to the overtime regulations and new paid-leave requirements for federal contractors. How will these issues affect your workplace? This session will provide an up-to-date discussion of current congressional activity as well as federal regulatory and judicial activity.
Tuesday, March 15 4:00 P.M. – 5:00 P.M. EST
“America’s historian-in-chief” Doris Kearns Goodwin examines the changing nature of the campaign for commander in chief from 1896, when 750,000 citizens showed up on the porch of the home of Republican candidate William McKinley, to today, when Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton communicates in 140 characters or less to her over 4 million Twitter followers. The evolution in presidential campaign communication and strategy underscores the constant focus on personal and professional exposure and accountability that comes with a run for the White House. Goodwin will transport you back to a simpler time to understand the transformation to our current political system, with its perpetual campaigning, negative slurs and ads, endless fundraising, high-stakes debates, recall elections, and over-reliance on polls. After five decades of studying the campaigns and candidates for the highest office in the land, Goodwin will share rich stories of spin, privacy and personality behind the quadrennial dance of democracy. Then she will speak about the current day—the 2016 presidential campaign, a lengthy, exhausting and costly race that will be dominated by the 24/7 news cycle, social media, pop culture and the rise of the super PACs.
