    Corporate Learning Programs That Drive Results!

    in Business

    Join us today on Women Leading the Way Radio as Michelle Bergquist, your host of Women Who Lead, interviews Kate Carroll, Director of Global Process at Ingram Micro.


    Kate brings us a discussion from the corporate women’s point of view!  Kate has seen many forms of management & leadership development programs. Kate’s current hot button is driving learning programs that drive results. She focuses on those that are preparatory for taking on a larger role in the org. Those that provide exposure to concepts and business scenarios while offering related projects within the business are the best. It combines the educational and experiential and helps weed out participants who are not ready. It can be a very complex environment, but one where women ARE on the front lines.


    Kate has a long standing career with the same employer that grew like crazy through the tech boom, and because of that, she has had tons of opportunity to learn new things, transfer around the organization, try roles outside her comfort zone, and advance. The growth trajectory meant she was often acting quickly to market needs and valued associates who were adaptable, inclusive, and creative. Mentors have had a large impact for her, from her mother to professional advocates!

    MODESTO BEE SPONSORS WATER SUMMIT

    in News

    Modesto Bee sponsors water Summit


    July 15, 2015   7-9 at the Gallo center


    The forum will be moderated by founder and former president of the Great Valley Center and former Mayor of  Modesto, Carol Whiteside.


    Whiteside left the great Valley Center when Bob Gallo discontinued financing the venture.


    As Mayor of Modesto. she is known for “Curtains up 88” that gave us the convention center and closed 10 Street which created a campus for the then First Baptist Church and cut off downtown Modesto.


    Whitesides credits are many. She was paid $15,000 with M ID money to lobby for the sale of water to San Francisco.


    It would be more informative, if the Bee had Carol Whiteside as a panelist, rather than the moderator.


    The five panelists are Jeff Cowan, Randy Fiorini, Sarge Green, Felicia Marcus, and Assemblywoman Kristen Olsen.


    The panel will engage in a conversation on valley water.


    The panel will bring their facts, viewpoints, and opinions to the discussion.


    In the interest of transparency and qualifications, each panelist should be asked if they went to the microphone during M ID meetings to oppose the sale of our water to San Francisco.


    We already know that the moderator was paid to lobby for the sale.


    We should thank the editors of the Modesto Bee Ken Riddick, Joseph Kieta, and Mike Dunbar.

    Corporate Personhood Using 14th Amendment to Fight Minimum Wage Laws

    in Politics

    Unbelievable but true. The case of “International Franchise Association vs. City of Seattle” is now being heard in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. The franchisers are claiming that a living wage violates their Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The members of the International Franchise Association claim the city of Seattle showed “animus” – or hostility – to corporations because the law goes after corporations as a disfavored minority. That means corporations think their civil liberties are being violated just like ex-slaves of the 19th century. It sounds surreal but the International Franchise Association with outside financial assistance has hired conservative corporate lawyer Paul Clements who is famous for arguing cases before the Supreme Court. It’s a country gone mad. Listen and understand the insanity. WIth my guest Ron Fein of Free Speech for People. The Tim Danahey Show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective. The show does not espouse a political agenda. Danahey’s strength is to take complex subjects, talk with experts and make them comprehensible and entertaining for average listeners

  • US Poverty. A by-Product of Political and Corporate Greed

    in Religion

    Americans work 40-60 hours weekly and remain below poverty lines. Poverty levels in states are misrepresented mainly because all wealth in a particular states is used to average out population income. The more millionaires per states and the fewer residents equates fewer people showing up in poverty count. This process can never be totally accurate because there is no way we'll ever be able to track where and how many places the wealth of millionaires and billionaires is stored. Americans who are wealthy are not all corrupt. The system they earn gains under is corrupt. The American system creates poverty for all who work for their money in America while those whose money works for them continue to experiece gains in wealth just for having money working for them. Poverty is straigth out of slavery and poverty devastrates lives of working class Americans. We can't fix the heart of men. Fix the systems and we fix poverty.
