INTO THE VIRTUAL WORLD: Are Women More Connected or Bowling Alone?


We often hear that women are the primary users of social media. IWF frequently points to technology as the real reason for women’s success with work-life balance today.

But is our new virtual world helping or hurting women and their families?

There’s no doubt new technology is changing the way we work, think, and behave. It gives us access to more information and creates new avenues for communication and enrichment. At the same time, it raises difficult new questions about our culture, privacy, and the role of the state.

Join the Independent Women's Forum on February 18th for an all-star panel where we will take a more in-depth look at virtual living and consider how it’s affecting our professional and personal successes and what all this means for the role of government.

U.S. and Global Debt: Finding Stability in an Indebted World

A recent McKinsey Global Institute report shows that seven years after the financial crisis, total global debt (public and private) has continued to grow, rising by $57 trillion since 2007. The U.S. debt situation looks relatively positive compared with other countries, as there has been substantial debt reduction in the private sector, although offset by the continued rise in government debt. Most other countries have seen growth of both private-sector debt and public sector debt. A range of countries have reached new peaks in household debt, in Northern Europe, Canada, Australia, and Singapore. In China, total debt has quadrupled since 2007, driven by a soaring, debt-financed real estate market. And in global corporate finance, there has been a dramatic shift in sources of debt from the banking sector to non-bank intermediaries. Does all this point to the risk of another debt crisis? This panel will discuss today's US and global debt landscape, the driving forces affecting both the public and private sectors, where the risks remain (and are emerging), and how to promote financial stability in an increasingly indebted world.

Panel:

Sabrina Schaeffer • Executive Director, Independent Women's Forum

Dr. Joe Kasputys • Co-Founder, IHS Economics & Country Risk, Inc. 

Maya MacGuineas • President, Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget

Doug Holtz-Eakin • President, American Action Forum and former CBO Director

Moderator:

Susan Lund • Partner, McKinsey Global Institute
