From the indomitable Erin Robinson:
"The Haas Gender Equity Initiative (GEI) has gathered insightful and actionable data over the past two years in regards to gender here at Haas. However, gender is just one aspect of our identities. This year, please help GEI to gather more specific data on various aspects of our identities and how those aspects interact with gender. (We promise it will take less than five minutes.)

Business Term of the Week: "Late Stage Capitalism"

A term that refers capitalism from about 1945 onwards, with the implication that it is a historically limited stage rather than an eternal feature of all future human society.

"Since we're in Late Stage Capitalism, instead of getting a job after graduating, I'm going to drink a lot of coffee, play on jungle gyms, and wait for The Fall of Capitalism"
