The Platinum Jubilee – Tree Planting

June 14th marks US Flag Day as well as the birthday of the US Army. On this special day in 2022, Her Majesty’s Deputy Consul General to New York, Hannah Young, officiated a tree planting ceremony in celebration of The Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The rain and clouds gave way to a lovely afternoon bathed in sunshine at Independence National Historic Park, Washington Square in Philadelphia.

This special ceremony was part of the Queen’s Green Canopy initiative, inviting people to “plant a tree for the Jubilee.” The Crown and all facets of British life are deeply committed to protecting our climate and sustainability. Planting a tree is a symbolic act of goodness that will ensure a brighter and greener future for all.

Cindy MacLeod, Superintendent, Independence National Historical Park welcomed keynote speakers and special guests for this momentous occasion. Following remarks, speakers took their turns at planting the beautiful oak tree before moving across the Square to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier where a wreath was laid.

The STIR: Unlocking a Talent Pool by Creating a Disability Inclusive Workplace

More than ever companies are committed to strengthening diversity and inclusion and have research backed business case for doing so. While huge progress has been made across boundaries of gender, race, and sexual orientation, one area remains neglected: disability.

Business leaders need to look beyond the obvious fixes to attract prospective talent. In a market where there are far more jobs than workers, companies can no longer afford to significantly underutilize a critical talent pool. Persons with disabilities represent ~15% of the population and nearly 80% worldwide are unemployed. With over 1 billion people with disability, companies have a billion reasons to change their hiring practices.
