The STIR: Mind The Gender Gaps – Bridging Say, Pay & Stay Gaps

Wednesday, September 14, 2021

REGISTER

While the transatlantic business community has made significant strides towards equalizing opportunities in the workplace, there is still much work to do to overcome the deeply entrenched gaps in opportunities for women. BritishAmerican Business brings together a panel of thought leaders to have an honest conversation on the gaps that still exist for women in the workplace today, and how we can bridge them. This includes:

  • The Pay Gap How effective has legislation aimed to equalize pay for women, a long-standing issue?
  • The Say Gap… There is a relative lack of opportunities for women to speak publicly and take authoritative roles as a representative of the institutions they work for, which has wide-ranging repercussions on women’s careers;
  • The Age Gap A candid look at the disparate experiences and varying challenges that women of different age groups have in the workplace— from millennials to seasoned executives in senior ranks.
  • The Stay Gap… What are effective policies for UK and USA employers to overcome the “Stay Gap” and encourage women to return to work after career breaks?

Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) and London Heathrow (LHR) are the backbone for international business and leisure travel, moving passengers and cargo across the Atlantic Ocean. The global economy and society depend upon this invaluable route. PHL and LHR also serve as a springboard for connecting flights throughout the world. The pandemic upended travel and created a cargo bottleneck. Constantly changing cross border restrictions and regulations have created pandemonium. Air travel is the lynchpin for operations throughout the transatlantic corridor and beyond. More than 20 million people travel between the US and the UK every year, delivering valuable trade, travel and tourism opportunities. Overall trade between the UK and US is more than £200 billion per year, and the US is the UK’s top investor, representing 27% of all inward foreign direct investment.

In May 2021, PHL and LHR signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to increase collaboration and permit greater engagement on a range of topics and issues, geared towards reinforcing recovery from COVID-19. One of the first goals of this MoU is to safely reopen boarders and allow for renewed travel between the US and UK.

The British American Business Council of Greater Philadelphia in partnership with BritishAmerican Business London, invite you to this informative virtual meeting featuring keynote remarks from Chellie Cameron, CEO, Philadelphia International Airport and John Holland-Kaye, CEO London Heathrow. In addition, a panel of experts from the travel, airline, and legal sectors will discuss the status of business, leisure and cargo movement throughout the transatlantic corridor. Speakers will review current regulations, as well as provide a preview of what we may be able to expect through the end of this year as our economies navigate the recovery process.

Duane Morris: Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Webinar Series

Wednesday, July 28, 2021

2:00 – 3:00 PM EST

REGISTER

Among the nonfinancial criteria businesses must increasingly consider to stay relevant to their employees, customers and boards is ESG ‒ Environmental, Social and Governance. Beyond making smart business sense, ESG initiatives can help drive efficiency, increase engagement and involve constituents in critical ecological and social improvements. Increasingly, investors and money managers want to know that a company does more than just turn a profit; indeed, having a positive impact on the world at large is now often a metric used to gauge the long-term health and viability of a commercial enterprise. Investments in real estate and development are now being evaluated for ESG sustainability by and for players in capital markets. Join our panel of executives from companies at the forefront of the field for a discussion of the metrics and methods used to gauge success and guard against losing ground.

KPMG: Tax Landscape Shift for Foreign-Parented Companies with U.S. Operations?

KPMG: Tax Landscape Shift for Foreign-Parented Companies with U.S. Operations?

Friday, July 30, 2021

11:00 AM EST

REGISTER

Developments over the past several months on both the U.S. and global stages portend possible significant business taxation changes for multinational companies. The Biden Administration released its Green Book explanation of its tax proposals in May, and the OECD/G20 moved forward on a consensus-based solution to the tax challenges arising from the digitalization of the economy through its work on Pillars One and Two during meetings in June and July.

KPMG LLP (KPMG) is pleased to invite you to a one-hour webcast, hosted by the KPMG U.S. Inbound Tax Network and KPMG U.S. International Corridors, that will examine how these developments may affect foreign-parented multinational groups with operations in the United States, and what these organizations may want to consider when evaluating the potential changes. Senior professionals from the KPMG Washington National Tax practice will discuss:

  • The prospects and potential timing of any U.S. tax legislation
  • The Biden administration’s tax proposals most relevant to “inbound” operations and potential changes that could be undertaken by Congress
  • The interaction of U.S. tax proposals with the proposals being developed by the OECD through the “Inclusive Framework.”

Please join us for what promises to be an insightful and informative webcast.
