Strategic Finance: "Women on Business Performance"

05/11/2016

Strategic Finance: "Women on Business Performance"

From glass ceilings and work-life balance to communicating with confidence and creating the right relationships, the issues facing women in the workplace continue to be hot topics of conversation. On October 9, 2015, nearly 80 IMA® (Institute of Management Accountants) members and Pace University alumnae gathered to carry forward that discussion and to explore their potential in today’s business environment. Attendees represented a wide range of industries and experience from accounting professors to CFOs, from the New York City Department of Finance to IBM.

This biannual event covered a technical topic—“Upcoming Changes in Lease Accounting”—presented by Sue Cosper, technical director of the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) and chairman of the Emerging Issues Task Force. It also explored women’s issues in “The Role Women Play in Driving Business Performance,” presented by Sandra Richtermeyer, professor of accountancy and associate dean at the Williams College of Business at Xavier University and former IMA Chair.

But the real showstopper of the Women’s Accounting Leadership Series event was the “Strategies for Professional Success” panel discussion with Susan Hohenleitner, vice president of finance and CFO of Johnson & Johnson Customer and Logistics Services (CLS), and Ann Dennison, a senior vice president with NASDAQ. Former FASB Chairman Leslie Seidman, an executive director at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business, facilitated the discussion in which panelists shared their insights, experiences, and advice on workplace challenges women face. This is a condensed version of that discussion that includes the highlights of their journeys and the unusual twists and turns that make each of their stories unique.

New York Daily News: "Bernie Sanders poised for another primary win in West Virginia — but it’s still almost impossible for him to secure Democratic nomination"

. . . "Secretary Clinton and her supporters still have not figured out a way for Sanders to gracefully leave and to transfer support to her," David Caputo, president emeritus and professor of Political Science at Pace University, told The News. "And Sanders is doing little to assist in this."

Inc.: "Why Some Companies--No Matter How Successful--Should Stay Private"

It could be that some businesses are much better off being private, even after years as public companies.

Just ask Krispy Kreme, the iconic doughnut maker that will go private by early summer, following a buy-out from JAB Beech, a private equity firm that announced it will acquire the brand for $1.35 billion.

Freed from the demands of public market investors who tend to focus on short-term returns, some companies may find renewed life that harks back to when they were small and privately held, business experts say. They can strengthen their brands, double down in the communities in which they operate, and get back to their roots as innovators.

"[Krispy Kreme] could take an approach to the business that is more family-friendly and more small-business friendly when you don't have the pressure of quarterly returns," says Bruce Bachenheimer, a clinical professor of management at Pace University in New York.

Bloomberg: "Trump-Clinton Contest Could Feature New York Fight"

Bloomberg: "Trump-Clinton Contest Could Feature New York Fight"

It may be completely unrealistic, but Donald Trump wants his fellow New Yorkers to think that he can do something that hasn't been done in 32 years: turn their state red in a presidential election.

Another New Yorker, Hillary Clinton, is almost certain to have something to say about that, if she becomes the Democratic nominee as expected and sets up the first presidential face-off between two Empire State residents in 72 years.

No Republican has won New York since Ronald Reagan in 1980 and 1984. Still, local observers don't completely rule out the possibility that Trump -- and his trademark unpredictability -- could force Clinton to spend precious resources defending the state.

"There is a chance that he could put the state in play," said David Caputo, president emeritus and professor of political science at Pace University in New York. "If he continues to strike a chord with his anti-trade policy and his arguments that he can create more jobs, I could see him running reasonably well in Upstate New York and I think he would draw some vote in Long Island."

PIX11 partners with the Veterans Education Challenge

PIX11 partners with the Veterans Education Challenge

Watch the video: http://pix11.com/2016/05/05/for-pace-student-and-veteran-bills-pile-up-e...

VEC founders, Avis and Bruce Richards, started the “Veterans Education $1 Million Matching Challenge” to help fund higher education for returning veterans.  Every dollar donated between Veterans Day 2015 and Veterans Day 2016 will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the Richards up to one million dollars.

We share the story of Air Force veteran and reservist Joe Bodd, who is taking advantage of the educational opportunity given to him through the bill, federal and state grants, and a school scholarship.

Joe Bodd followed in his grandfather’s footsteps.  In December 2009, after a year of college, he joined the Air Force.

“My grandfather was in the Air Force, so I said ‘I might as well carry on the tradition.’  There are so many outlets for you to do great things in the Air Force.  That’s why I like it,”  Bodd said.  “It’s more about camaraderie, like people aren’t trying to jump over each other to make the next rank or do the next greatest job.  We all work together.”

In 2011, Bodd was deployed to Iraq, where he was assigned to the protect Balad Air Base.  During his 2 years of active duty, he married fellow Air Force veteran, Frances Escorcia.   After completing their tours, they headed home to Staten Island.

“I remember coming over the Goethals Bridge, and feeling like this is it, new opportunities,” Bodd reflected.  “and the real world hits you in the face.  My wife was pregnant.”

Their adorable daughter Jayda is now 4-years-old.

“I just want to be that model for my daughter.  I’m proud of what my dad did, what he does,” said the 26-year-old father.

And little Jayda has lots to be proud of.  Bodd is now a reservist out of McGuire Air Force Base.  Plus, he’s become a member of the FDNY.

On top of fighting fires, Bodd has been going to school full time.  He’s finishing up his bachelor of arts in economics and criminal justice at Pace University in Manhattan.

New York Daily News: "Republican Veepstakes underway as Trump inches toward GOP nomination"

New York Daily News: "Republican Veepstakes underway as Trump inches toward GOP nomination; experts say mogul should prioritize age, outsider status"

. . . "If he wants to run as an outsider he has to find someone who is credible but has limited experience. If wants to run with someone who can be President from day one then he picks someone with legislative or executive experience thus making it harder for him to argue he is a true outsider," said David Caputo, president emeritus and professor of Political Science at Pace University.

Homeland Security Today: "Security Concerns Surround Summer 2016 Rio Olympics"

Homeland Security Today: "Security Concerns Surround Summer 2016 Rio Olympics"

. . . Joseph Ryan, professor and chair of the Department of Criminal Justice and Security at Pace University, told Homeland Security Today that in the current threat environment, dangerous security incidents are no longer a matter of “if” but of “when.” However, he is optimistic that the games will be safe.

“You can always expect something is going to happen,” said Ryan. “Security teams must be absolutely vigilant.”

Prof. Ryan chaired an Advisory Group for the US Department of Justice that developed security strategies for the 1996 summer Olympics. He is also a 25-year veteran of the New York City Police Department and was their expert on evaluations of all levels of police management, and on community policing and violence.

“Right now, there are no red flags,” said Ryan. “If we go back to Egypt to the Arab Spring Uprising, if something like that were to happen in Brazil—which I am more than confident will not—that would be a major red flag.”

Ryan added, “I am presuming that from all the lessons learned from previous games, particularly the Munich games where we lost so many lives, Brazil is really going to crack down and make sure the security of the athletes is the number one priority. There is no reason that I am currently aware of to suspect any concerns regarding security.”

Based on his experience, Ryan said security personnel will likely be on the lookout for several indicators leading up to the Olympic Games, including chatter and unusual activity at sports facilities prior to the games. Security personnel should not wait for day one of the games to begin securing these facilities---vigilance is needed now to ensure nothing dangerous is entering two or three months beforehand.

Financial Times: "Cruz quits and hands victory to Trump"

Financial Times: "Cruz quits and hands victory to Trump"

. . . Before Mr Cruz’s announcement, David Caputo, a politics professor at Pace University in New York, said Mr Trump had essentially won the nomination several weeks ago. “All the factors were there for his winning — enthusiastic supporters, weak opposition and little co-ordinated effort to stop him, plus a favourable set of primary elections.” He said one of the interesting things to watch for now was who the New York mogul would pick as his vice-presidential running mate.

Washington Post: "Hulu may soon offer live TV, including sports"

Washington Post: "Hulu may soon offer live TV, including sports"

Hulu is reportedly looking into offering live-streaming content from a handful of cable channels for about $40 per month. (Dan Goodman/AP)

. . . Hulu will still need to offer its own original programming to stand out from the pack, said Larry Chiagouris, a professor of marketing at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business. "Fox and Disney content will be a very strong beginning for the new service. However, since that programming can be obtained in other ways, Hulu will need to do more than offer Fox and Disney content."
