GAPFRAME Reveals the World is in a Critical State

The World GAPFRAME Profile

Never before has the state of the world been measured across four sustainability dimensions. The news is not good, the world in a critical state.

The SDGs provide a framework to secure a sustainable future. To succeed we must identify the gaps. I welcome the GAPFRAME, which can play a role in identifying the sustainable development priorities.”

— Paul Polman, CEO, Unilever

LAUSANNE, SWITZERLAND, July 26, 2017 / — As a measurement of global sustainability the GAPFRAME ( is unique. Never before has the state of the world been measured across four sustainability dimensions and against the ideal of a safe space. The news is not good, the world in a critical state. The task is clear: moving the world to a safe space requires improvements in every one of the 24 issues measured.

The GAPFRAME translates the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into 24 relevant issues and then measures each country and region across four sustainability dimensions: Planet, Economy, Society, and Governance. It maps the results to a target safe space, highlighting the resulting gap. To ensure strong sustainability the GAPFRAME ranks countries over the score of their lowest dimension.

This first GAPFRAME Report covers 155 countries, 20 Geographical and 3 Geopolitical Regions. It is published by GAPFRAME.ORG, a group of multi-stakeholder sustainability thought leaders, driven by the desire to make it easier to deliver on the SDGs. This coincided with the launch of the GAPFRAME by Katrin Muff, Ph.D. at the UNPRME Global Forum which takes place during the High Level Political Forum Exchange in New York.

When asked why is the world doing so badly, Katrin Muff explained:
'With a GAPFRAME Score of 5.1 the world is in a critical state with all four of its dimensions measuring less than 6.3. No surprise! Major threats in issues of peace & cooperation, structural resilience, business integrity, and transparency result in Governance being identified as the priority dimension. However burning issues such as waste treatment, social integration, clean energy, innovation, and land & forest, represent equal threats in the dimensions of Planet, Economy, and Society. On a slightly more positive note: biodiversity, sustainable consumption, carbon quotient, clean air, and living conditions are at a critical stage.'

The GAPFRAME clearly outlines the priority issues for each nation so that governments, business, community and education can start to act. It provides a concrete starting point for strategic discussions on sustainability and an effective decision-making tool to help focus on activities that can bring the world to a safe space.

Paul Polman, CEO, Unilever said:
 ‘The SDG’s provide the world with a framework to secure a sustainable future that works for everyone. To succeed we must understand where the gaps are. As has rightly been said, you treasure what you measure. That is why I welcome the GAPFRAME, which can play a helpful role in identifying the sustainable development priorities for each country and region.’

Key Findings:
-There is evidence that the more developed a country is, the more advanced it is at improving all its issues towards a safe space, of course with exceptions – e.g. USA ranking at 89.
-Planet (the environment) is the most challenged dimension with only 1% of countries contributing to a safe space.
-Scandinavian countries emerge as best practice examples on the journey to safe space

How Professional Standards Elevate Diversity Work

Diversity & Inclusion Credentials Are Quickly Becoming the Workplace Standard

Top 10 Reasons to Certify Your Entire Diversity & Inclusion Team

INDIANAPOLIS, IN, U.S., July 25, 2017 / — Today, ANYONE can say that they are an "experienced" Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) leader. However, after burning through a substantial investment of time and treasury, companies are learning otherwise about some individuals who claim to be D&I experts.

Eight (8) years ago, the Institute for Diversity Certification (IDC)™ developed a professional safeguard to help companies ascertain how successful a potential job candidate, current employee, or consultant will be in their efforts to advance workplace equity, diversity and inclusion. Similar to a certification process for an accountant, doctor, fundraising professional or human resources executive, IDC designed a streamlined and rigorous system to assure employers that diversity and inclusion leaders are qualified to perform the job.

Professional qualification credentials from IDC means that a person has passed a standardized exam with an 80% or better, and the individual completed an external peer review process certifying that they are a legitimate and elite diversity and inclusion leader. Rita Holmes-Bobo, Executive Vice President of Diversity Equity and Inclusion at KVC Health Systems in Olathe, Kansas, achieved the CDE credential in June 2017. After completing the online preparation course, Mrs. Holmes-Bobo said, “I enjoyed the webinar classes and the creation of the project. The CDE class content should be required knowledge for every diversity, equity and inclusion professional.”

In fact, many organizations such as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Postal Service, Federal Reserve Bank, Excellus Blue Cross Blue Shield, U.S. Acute Care Solutions, Mercedes Benz/AIDT, Washington State Department of Social and Health Services, Indiana State University, and others, have required multiple members on their D&I team to obtain Certified Diversity Professional (CDP)™ or Certified Diversity Executive (CDE)™ credentials.

These organizations turned to certified professionals because they wanted to:

1. Improve the consistency of Diversity and Inclusion outcomes.
2. Understand what population changes mean for recruiting, sales/marketing, students, volunteers, suppliers/partners and the board of directors.
3. Ensure management and employees focus on connecting the D&I strategy to organizational goals.
4. Increase efficiency, reduce waste, and save time.
5. Develop a professional culture and better team morale.
6. Serve internal and external customers better.
7. Benchmark their efforts against other industry leaders.
8. Experience quicker results from change efforts.
9. Customize their professional work submission to reflect real business needs.
10.Achieve international recognition as an industry leader.

Modern-day diversity and inclusion efforts are driven by globalization, competition, and changing demographics. In a recent Harvard Business Review article entitled, "How Royal DSM Is Improving Its Geographic and Gender Diversity", author Avivah Wittenberg-Cox asserts, "With the recent spate of firms in the news over sexual harassment allegations and charges of gender bias, it is obvious that an issue many in business had thought was “done” is instead far from finished. Fostering corporate cultures which make half your employees feel somewhere between unengaged and unsafe is becoming risky and unsustainable." Accordingly, Dutch-based Royal DSM is the perfect example of a CEO who leads a gender balanced team in a field that has been traditionally dominated by men. IDC's certification program explores best practices, research and case studies (such as the DSM case), that can be replicated in organizations around the world. This is why professionals throughout the U.S., Canada, India, Japan, Germany, and Poland possess CDP and CDE credentials, and it is also why IDC is currently working to offer the credentials in other nations abroad.

Today, there are hundreds of designees at Fortune 500's, government agencies, nonprofits and educational institutions. IDC recently conferred CDP credentials to: James Bowles, Madisonville Community College; Clinton Covert, Ed.D., Defense Contract Management Agency; Brian Jones, Shelter Insurance; Minny Deol Olson, Seva Diversity Consulting; Andreea Petre, Insight Canada; Brandie Roberts, University of Alabama Huntsville; and Susanna Speed, Trillium Health. James Bowles, CDP, Director of Cultural Diversity at Madisonville Community College, has used his new-found knowledge to contribute to the development of strategies and approaches that advance access, success, diversity and inclusion for students and employees at the college. After achieving CDP credentials, Mr. Bowles was moved to the President's Office to raise the profile of diversity on campus. This and other success stories have inspired some D&I professionals to pursue the Diversity Executive certification. For example, Gail Williams, Chief Diversity Officer at Hodges University achieved the CDP in 2013, and completed the CDE in May 2017. Since then Williams has been given increasingly more responsibilities and has led several high-impact initiatives, with the support of the campus President, Dr. Donald Wortham. Both credentialing programs empower diversity leaders to work more effectively with senior leadership, and to drive interventions that will deliver meaningful outcomes.

Other executives with newly conferred CDE credentials include: Ismael Acevedo, New York Life Insurance Agent; Clara Awe, Ph.D., University of Illinois at Chicago; Jason Barnett, The Ohio State University; Rita Holmes-Bobo, KVC Health Systems; Kathryn Pullen, U.S. Air Force; Deepa Shankar; and Angelina Wilson, Dream Builders Communication.

IDC guarantees that its designees are more effective and better equipped to deliver sustainable solutions– which allows organizations to experience greater benefits from diversity and inclusion work. The credentialing body offers ongoing resources and technical support through its professional membership arm, The Society for Diversity, to ensure that CDP and CDE designees exceed expectations. With thousands of individuals already using IDC's trademarked credentials, your organization can experience the advantage too.

Amazon set to battle Zillow and Redfin with online real estate services

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, July 25, 2017 / — Amazon, the online shopping giant, has been quietly testing a new service that could potentially turn it into a major player in the hyper-competitive online real estate space.

Housing-Wire reports, “Amazon now lists a ‘Hire a Realtor’ page” tucked into the website’s Home and Business Services section, where users can receive quotes from professionals for various services including assembling new purchases or setting up new technology.

This is the first move Amazon has made into world of real estate, but many experts saw it coming.

“We’ve expected to see a real estate play from Amazon for a long time”, says Billy Alvaro, CEO of New York based Real Estate Investment firm Max Returns REI. “Amazon’s greatest advantage is the consumer data they own and how they plan to use it to gain footholds in key real estate markets.”

An article in GeekWire, by Monica Nickelsburg, states, “When reports of the Amazon page surfaced, Zillow’s stock price slumped from $46.15 a share to $44.54 as of Wednesday morning, showing just how closely investors are watching the Seattle retailer.”

Amazon plans to bundle home services like contracting, inspections, and home decor with their realty services in an attempt to be a “one stop shop” for buyers and sellers.

Many key forecasters believe the move to online real estate commerce could hurt the average realtor while actually boosting the business of specialty and niche-based professionals.

Leading Los Angeles based realtor Gina Michelle (Named in the top 100 Most Influential Realtors in California) says her buyers still want a personal touch. “Most of the buyers that I work with on the purchase of any property – luxury or otherwise – insist on walking through each transaction with a real person. I think the move to purely online operations leaves out a key element in a successful real estate purchasing experience.”

Amazon has not officially announced anything regarding new real estate services, but it looks more certain than ever that they will enter the real estate world as competitors to Zillow and Redfin.

"It is part of our corporate identity to adapt our design in detail to the respective locations.

History of the Swiss Society New York

Since its beginnings in 1882, the Swiss Society has expanded greatly in reach and impact. In 1888, the Society began to hold annual banquets at prestigious New York hotels. For many years, the Astor Hotel on Broadway, formerly between 44th and 45th Streets, was the primary venue for these events.

In the 1920s, the Swiss Society began to transform itself into an organization carried by the growing Swiss business community in New York. This also brought about a change in the scope of the annual banquet; with a new set-up as a charitable annual ball, the now famous Swiss Ball was born.

Throughout the 20th century, the Swiss Society played a key role in the Swiss community of the greater New York area. In 1951, it began to organize luncheons (initially called “Déjeuners Suisses”) that featured prominent politicians, businessmen, scientists, artists, and journalists from Switzerland and the United States. It also organized Swiss National Day celebrations and other events. In 1991, the Swiss Society participated in the celebrations for the 700th anniversary of the Swiss Confederation.

The Swiss Society of New York is a private non-profit organization committed to encouraging the extensive historical friendship between the United States and Switzerland, and to supporting Swiss culture and heritage in the New York tri-state area and other regions of the United States.

Orbis Research Present's Latest "Youth and Amateur Adult League Sports Software: Market Shares, Strategies, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2017 to 2023" Report

DALLAS, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, July 25, 2017 / — Orbis Research announces that it has published a new study “Youth and Amateur Adult League Sports Software: Market Shares, Strategies, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2017 to 2023”. The study has 737 pages, 419 tables and figures. Worldwide youth sports software markets are poised to achieve significant growth and enormous market consolidation as youth and recreational teams move to automated process.

The youth sports software is sold or given away free to teams, leagues and tournaments. Often a league will distribute the software to teams, clubs, or tournaments. Sometimes teams and clubs buy the software directly. A lot of youth sports software had been homegrown functionality bolted onto a stable platform. This homegrown small market software has basically become outdated, slated to be replaced with packaged, licensed or cloud software that is more robust.
The youth sports software provides registration and payment collection. The payment collection aspect of the software is sometimes important because it creates a way to collect a transaction fee that is used to pay for the software and provide continuing revenue to the provider.

Request Sample of this Report at:

The primary purpose of youth and adult sports team software is to deliver robust, automated process for the registration, scheduling, web site construction, coaching management, communication, tournament play, and video coaching that are needed to run a team effectively. Transaction management and fee collection are key aspects of some of the software.

Active solutions based on transaction payments are often available at no additional cost to the teams and parents of players. Transaction fee basis provides a revenue model that makes the availability of the app free.

Integration of a variety of technologies is the functional direction of market development as vendors seek to build out a platform. As companies try to build out specialized payment processing, registration, scheduling, and team communications capability, the platforms become very complex and difficult to change. The classic software problems associated with integration of different software modules begin to plague systems developers. The platform can include a lot of different functions illustrated below.

Youth sports package software often generates revenue by taking a small percentage of the transactions that are run through the software by the teams. Standard software licenses are also used to pay for the software. A third revenue model depends on an annual fee per registration. In some cases, the fee is $50 per web site and an additional $299 annually A vendor typically charges $2.50 per registrant. Custom graphics are available for $599 typically. Software license revenue is a market factor. SaaS applications are sure to emerge as cloud computing becomes more relevant to the software industry.

Several youth team software vendors provide web site design tools, other vendors permit users to work with a graphics team to support building the appropriate design. Most vendors offer premium features to make them available in high end web sites. This includes text messaging, team, and effective communications capability.
A very few vendors are specialists in payments processing. Credit card processing is an important part of running an team. The teams revolve around shared use of fields, courts or ice. Payments processing provides a way to collect the money easily, providing a base for the team.

Most youth team software is available with an initial free trial. This lets people try out the web site for an organization. The strength of the software is the player registration process. Other vendors have strength in payments processing. Still others specialize in the web site design. A vendor that provides the best registration software considers it the bread and butter for the company. Communication is a more elaborate software requirement and that is being upgraded by most vendors. Vendors work to make their software customizable. Vendors permit users to ask questions specific to the league, they can add an additional fee to be collected during the registration process.

Vendors are making acquisitions to make the software able to provide a large set of capabilities. Modules brought in from different companies and developers are difficult to integrate into a functioning platform. Frequently functionality brought in from an acquisition is torn down and rewritten to make it conform to a platform standard.”
Market growth comes from increased benefits of organization in youth sports leagues. Travel teams and tournaments are in vogue. These do not happen in a consistent manner unless there is automated process in place. Automated process is just better for making a team function smoothly, eliminating vast amounts of politics. Shared resource is always a problem, having automated management is better. Once one aspect of the team management is automated, there is demand to automate all the processes across the board leading to plenty of consolidation and acquisitions in this market.

In a $9 billion U.S. youth sports market, the software for youth and amateur adult league teams at $1.2 represents only a portion of the total spending on the market. This is a nascent market, there is no end in sight, markets are expected to reach $6.9 billion by 2023. Sports teams will continue to get more organized and depend on software to provide increased management efficiency.
