Next-Gen Business Partnership Kicks off with Successful Summer Internships
On July 30, leaders from the U.S. Chamber and Howard University convened to officially establish an important long-term strategic alliance, the Next-Gen Business Partnership.
The partnership, the first of its kind, offers a four-prong plan for fostering a dialogue and forging relationships between the business community and Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and other minority serving institutions. It will bolster diversity in the workplace, strengthen the talent pipeline, and promote entrepreneurship as a pathway to business success. READ MORE
The Disneyland Resort is asking Anaheim officials to cancel two major tax subsidy deals. The company believes the deals have become a flashpoint for controversy and dissent in the community. The deals include a 20-year, 70 percent hotel bed tax rebate and a 45-year exemption on taxing admission ticket prices and parking. The request comes amid a heated, union-funded push to pass an initiative on the November 6 general election ballot, which would require all businesses in the Anaheim Resort receiving a city tax subsidy to pay a minimum wage of $18 an hour by 2022. It’s possible that rescinding the two subsidy deals would mean the minimum wage initiative, if passed by voters, would not apply to Disneyland, said a city spokesman. SOURCE: VOICE OF ORANGE COUNTY
The latest United Nations population data notes Generation Z will comprise 32 percent of the global population of 7.7 billion in 2019, nudging ahead of millennials, who will account for a 31.5 percent share. The key factor that differentiated these two groups, other than their age, is an element of self-awareness versus self-centeredness. Millennials are focused on what was in it for them. They also looked to others, such as the companies they did business with, for solutions, whereas the younger people naturally sought to create their own solutions. Source: SF Gate / Statistics: here
