Property control is capital control, and women – still -- have less of it than men. What you may not realize is lingering perverse incentives that guarantee male ownership are still perpetuated today even in the US, particularly as assets transfer from one generation to the next.
This is not just a 3rd world problem, Kate McKeon will present examples of current, NYC-based Estate Planning situations where even attempts at fairness create an unintended but real disadvantage for the women.
The next 10 years represent the largest expected generational asset transfer in history. Now is the time to remove illogical, dated social policy from our laws for property ownership and control of capital thereby reducing incentives to discriminate against women.
If we want to eradicate the inequalities among men and women, we must address underlying social attitudes derived from codified legal and financial structures.
Participant/Sponsored Sessions are time slots in which Atlas Summit participants and paying sponsors can offer talks and workshops of their own.
