Affirmative Action Diversity Equity Inclusion

Uplifting women in society is a government policy and duty for socially responsible corporations. Since 1961 various Executive Orders, federal laws, state laws, and corporate initiatives have helped women advance in the business-world and government sector. Recently, the 2023 U.S. Supreme Court repealed Affirmative Action in university admissions. This outdated legislation has transformed into Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion using a new set of metrics.

The Future is Female

Now, more than ever, it's important to confirm your gender as female and business ownership as medical technology advances. Legislation, medical confirmation, and social policy affirms that males-at-birth can transition into female at any age. Such transformation increases the female population and siphons resources from females-at-birth to transgender females. It's imperative that all females-at-birth certify their business-ownership to maximize their social status, professional recognition, commercial opportunities, and access to New York SBA™ resources.
