A livestream linking all events will feature appearances by Matt McGorry and Kimberlé Crenshaw (6:00 pm ET), Ellevest CEO Sallie Krawcheck (5:30 pm ET), and Patricia Arquette from the ERA Coalition’s 50/50 Day event in New York City (6:30 pm ET). Events will feature discussions about gender equality and film screenings of 50/50 and the new short film Why I Pledge 50/50. Events will culminate with participants committing to an action pledge. Prominent supporters of 50/50 Day also include Will & Jada Smith Family Foundation’s Jada Pinkett Smith and President Jana Babatunde-Bey. The 50/50 Day Action Pledge tool was created by the 50/50 Day team in partnership with global digital marketing agency April Six. The pledges and resources were contributed in collaboration with leading equity organizations like the ERA Coalition, United State of Women, African American Policy Forum, and A Call to Men and 50/50 Day partners like Office of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, Mount Saint Mary’s College, Sarasota Military Academy Prep, Refinery29, and others. The 50 action pledges are customized for different types of people, such as leaders of companies, educators, parents, adults, and young people, and offer pledges that people can make to address gender inequality in five key areas: politics, economy, identity, culture, and home. Action pledges include: I pledge to ensure my company’s board and senior team are 50 percent women. I pledge to register and vote in all elections, from local to national. I pledge to include an equal number of male and female figures in my course curriculum. I pledge to connect two women or other underrepresented people with mentors. I pledge to ensure the division of labor, including caretaking, is balanced in my family. Available in six different languages, the pledge tool enables users to share their pledges on social media and engage with a global map showing the location and concentration of other pledge-makers throughout the world. To help people fulfill their pledges, users can also choose to receive periodic reminders and encouragement to follow through on their pledges. “We want to inspire people everywhere to make the leap from awareness to action by committing themselves to doing at least one thing to advance gender equality in their community, business, school, home, or personal lives,” said Tiffany Shlain, a co-founder of 50/50 Day. “Our goal is to show that everyone has a role to play in creating a more balanced, just, and fair world and that we need to work year-round to move us closer to gender equality.” Any individual, school, company, or organization can still organize a 50/50 Day event and receive free resources including short films for screenings, and discussion kits by officially registering a 50/50 Day event online here. The idea for 50/50 Day was sparked by Webby Awards founder and Emmy-nominated filmmaker Tiffany Shlain, who directed the 2016 film 50/50, which is produced by Refinery29 and part of their Shatterbox film series. The day was co-founded by Sawyer Steele and Julie Hermelin, and co-created with partnership director, Makenzie Darling and countless partners with activists in the field. 50/50 Day 2018 Sponsors include: Refinery29, April Six, The Women’s Funding Network, The Jacquelyn and Gregory Zehner Foundation, David and Lura Lovell Foundation, Red Summit Productions, Influence Film Club, Ashley and Marc Merrill, Morrison Family Charitable Trust, and EACH Foundation. 50/50 Day 2018 Partners include: United State of Women, ERA Coalition, Wilson Center Women in Public Service Project, Global Fund for Women, A Call to Men, Take the Lead, The Eva Longoria Foundation, The Will and Jada Smith Family Foundation’s Careers in Entertainment (CIE), Level Forward/Killer Films, The California Department of Education, WeTransfer, Vision 2020, Equal Voice Canada, MAKERS, Mt.

Eight years later, he teamed up with fellow comedian Larry David to create what was to become the most successful comedy series in the history of television: Seinfeld. The show ran on NBC for nine seasons, winning numerous Emmy, Golden Globe and People’s Choice awards, and was named the greatest television show of all time in 2009 by TV Guide, and in 2012 was identified as the best sitcom ever in a 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair poll.

New Data Breaks Workforce Stereotypes: Two Blue-collar Industries Outpace White-collar Retirement Readiness
WASHINGTON, April 25, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The story of saving for retirement today has two key factors: the industry you are in and your company size. Newly released retirement-readiness scores show workers in two blue- and gray-collar fields, Engineering and Protective Services, are better prepared for retirement compared to all workers – outpacing even white-collar employees – reports The State of America's Workforce, a national study commissioned by the Indexed Annuity Leadership Council (IALC).  Yet overall, blue- and gray-collar industries are less prepared for their golden years, with eight of 11 scoring below average. The numbers are especially bleak for workers in the Food Preparation and Personal Care industries. The bottom-ranked industries show a barrier of access to employer-sponsored plans, which traditionally have provided accumulation and lifetime income opportunities.  In fact, more than one-third of workers who are unprepared for retirement say they don't have access to retirement plans or products, leaving them to create a self-driven plan for saving enough and making it last as long as they do.    "Long-term planning is hard enough when we know all related variables, but retirement planning is riddled with unknowns, whether you have an employer-sponsored plan or not," notes Kristen Berman, co-founder and principal at Common Cents Lab at Duke University and a collaborator on the study. "One option to introduce certainty into the retirement equation is exploring a savings vehicle that provides a guaranteed lifetime income, like a fixed indexed annuity. This type of annuity leans into our desire for certainty by providing a steady stream of funds, helping Americans solve the complex math problem known as retirement savings." The quest for a stable income you can't outlive is a goal shared by the majority of America's workforce, with almost 80 percent reporting this as their number one retirement need. Unfortunately, more than three-quarters of workers plan on meeting this need by relying on Social Security. Given the sustainability concerns of Social Security, it is important to consider additional savings vehicles, like fixed indexed annuities, which also provides guaranteed lifetime income, in addition to principal protection from market declines and tax-deferred growth. However, currently only two percent of pre-retirees are taking advantage of this option.  "A diversified portfolio is a proven strategy for income growth and wealth protection," said Jim Poolman, Executive Director of the IALC. "Fixed indexed annuities can be combined with Social Security, independent accounts, and other employer-sponsored options, if available, to help ensure a balanced financial plan, while also being the one product in the mix to assure a lifetime income stream that keeps going." Financial planning is not only saving for retirement, it is also about securing retirement income to last the long haul. Financial resources such as online calculators and budgeting tools can help ensure an accurate, customized plan is in place to ensure funds will last a lifetime. For workers getting close to retirement age, financial retirement goals shift from accumulation of wealth to principal protection and longevity of dollars. "If you have qualified dollars, from vehicles like 401(k)s or IRAs, and are looking at next steps for when you retire, many wonder how to take what they have accumulated and make it last," comments Poolman. "A fixed indexed annuity provides principal protection from market fluctuations and guarantees a reliable income check that is predictable and will not stop for the duration of your retirement."  To learn more about The State of America's Workforce study and white paper, visit: http://fiainsights.org/americasworkforce. For more information on retirement planning and fixed indexed annuities, visit IALC's educational website or follow the IALC on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. About The State of America's Workforce All data is based on a large-scale, quantitative survey of 2,103 U.S. full-time working Americans conducted during March 2018 by Research Now, a global market research company with more than 11 million panelists. White-, blue- and gray-collar workers, as classified by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), were included in the survey population. The study's retirement-readiness scores are calculated based on the percent of the money needed for retirement that respondents reported already saved.  About the Indexed Annuity Leadership Council The Indexed Annuity Leadership Council (IALC) brings together a consortium of life insurance companies with a commitment to providing consumers, the media, regulators and industry professionals factual information about the use of fixed indexed annuities. Namely, that these products provide a source of guaranteed income, principal protection from market declines, and interest rate stability in retirement as well as balance to any long-term financial plan.
