Nearly 50 years after Congress passed Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibiting discrimination against women in employment decisions, and nearly 25 years after the Supreme Court held in Pricewaterhouse v. Hopkins that an employer could not use gender stereotypes to deny a woman partnership, women continue to face barriers to attaining leadership positions. This panel will offer suggestions for workplace education and elimination of bias against women programs as ordinary and necessary business expenses under section 162 of the Internal Revenue Code.
