by Alvin Rabushkavia Thoughtful Ideas
Thursday, February 14, 2019

Demography is Diversity. Diversity is being driven by demography. The dramatic change in the U.S. population from 88.3% White in 1940 to a projected 42.6% White in 2060 (Whites will cease being a majority sometime around 2042-45) must necessarily change the composition and leadership of nearly every American organization and institution.

The Women's Global Development And Prosperity Initiative

Thursday, February 7, 2019

I have often said that if I could wave a magic wand and do one thing, I would empower women. Not just because it is the 'right' thing to do -- though it is the right thing to do -- but because it would solve so many other problems.


The Return Of Ancient Prejudices

by Victor Davis Hansonvia American Greatness
