Polling is an inexact science: there’s so much information out there, with many sources claiming to have the most up-to-date data, that it becomes difficult to know what information is reliable. Gary Langer, Emmy Award-winning pollster for ABC News and one of the most respected and trusted pollsters in the industry, provides valuable information to help you better grasp how the world is changing and what you should do about it. Langer peppers his discussion with recent polls that clarify the political, economic and social mood of the nation today. He discusses how trends inform current—and future—public attitudes and the resulting policies. It’s an illuminating look at where we are, where we're headed and the forces that will shape attitudes for years to come.

In "How and Why It's President Trump," Gary Langer offers a deep dive into political attitude formation and the social and economic conditions that produced the 2016 election outcome, including the problematic election narrative, the performance of the polls and a look down road ahead. With colorful cartographs and references to train wrecks, Simon and Garfunkel and 30 years of partisan trends, Gary's talk is as engaging as it is informative.

We all know the data – women are the majority of the population, the majority of the electorate and the majority of the college graduates in virtually every field and yet in many ways true equality for American Women remains elusive. For years we’ve been hearing about the barriers women face but less about the solutions that women themselves have the power to influence. For the future to be female and equal, women will need to do more than Lean In at work. They will need to step forward and advocate for themselves and each other in new and important ways. While women are as diverse as the nation itself, there are many issues where woman across the spectrum agree. If we can seize the opportunities, large and small, to ensure the full equality of American women, the future holds limitless possibilities.

As one of the most diverse nations on earth, the United States has a unique potential to be the most innovative and how will we live together peacefully and productively? Can we find a way to make our multifaceted diversity an asset, economically and socially or will it continue to be our deepest and most painful source of conflict? Crossing The Thinnest Line argues passionately and persuasively for the possibility, power, purpose and payoff of embracing difference. The stakes for the conversation are high and getting higher. Already, 89% of the world's educated population is either female or minority. In less than a generation, the US will become minority majority. The world economy is global and interconnected. Embracing diversity has never been more imperative. With compelling data and powerful, personal stories, Lauren Leader-Chivee looks at challenges and solutions to immigration, education, business, media and politics and inspires us to rise to the challenge.

As Secretary of the Air Force and as a business leader, Deborah was charged with talent management; readiness and training;

Deborah talks about controversial topics including: the readiness of today’s armed forces; sequestration; opening combat jobs to women in the military; making the acquisition process more efficient; and countering the threats posed by ISIS and Russia.
