    Please tune in to Stand Up Hudson Valley Episode 20 tonight at 7 PM.  Hosts John Allegro and Emily Convers will discuss the latest on "Salt-gate," the manufactured controversy that has roiled the relationship between the Town Board and the Monroe Highway Superintendant over the past months.  It's so bad that the April 20 Town Board meeting degenerated into a shouting match between the Supervisor and the Hwy. Superintendant that lasted about an hour.


    All this prior to announcing a "rules of civility" for meeting attendees.  


    John and Emily will also detail the plan by the KJPE to drive down property values through annexation.  Also, how this annexation - if passed - will have grave consequences on the MW School District and our childrens' education.

    Intersectionality & Diversity in the Tech Industry: Challenge of Silicon Valley

    in Business

    This interview is a three-way discussion between the host, Franne McNeal, the author, Dr. Fay Cobb Payton and Dr. Wayne M. Wormley.


    Dr. Fay Cobb Payton published a book in 2014 entitled: Leveraging Intersectionality: Seeing and Not Seeing, in which she discussed digital and social inclusion in technology oriented fields. Her work is a reflection of the earlier diversity efforts (from the 80’s and 90’s to the new millennium), to create productive and healthy work environments that naturally attract the best and brightest talent, globally. Here we are in 2015 and we see these efforts have not succeeded, especially in technology oriented/STEM fields.

    Guest: Dr. Fay Cobb Payton, Founding Director, MyHealthImpactNetwork, a social network experience that focuses on health disparities and social media technology interventions. @MyHealthImpact provides “voice” for the millennial generation about health, culture and technology innovation topics. www.MyHealthImpactNetwork.org, https://www.linkedin.com/in/drfay, www.twitter.com/MyHealthImpact



    Guest: Dr. Wayne M. Wormley, President, The Wormley Company, an extensive network of consultants and trainers, that provides clients with cost-effective solutions to interpersonal and organizational performance and productivity issues, by creating a work environment in which everyone can do their best work and achieve their full potential. www.linkedin.com/pub/wayne-wormley/5/394/575
