Yesterday’s Tax Document Leak Covered Up a Sinister Executive Order

Yet again, President Trump used the media’s frothiness to direct public conversation away from dark corners he’d prefer to hide. Yesterday’s executive order is a classic example of why we need to pay attention to whatever Trump chooses NOT to tweet about. The E.O. provides the tools for dismantling all of the dearest services and protections our government provides.

3p Weekend: Trump’s Cabinet Looks Like a Bunch of Comic Book Villains

Black Lives Matter and Beyond: Corporate Leaders Respond

It would be an understatement to say the Black Lives Matter movement has left an indelible mark on America’s timeline. But for all too long, America’s employees of every color have left it at the door when they walk into work. Companies don’t know how to talk about this topic. CSR departments don’t know how to address it, and don’t even know if they should. It’s time to talk about it.
