- ATPI Taxation and Gender Summer Series
July 23, July 30, and August 6, 2021, Virtually on Zoom.
Series Co-Sponsors include American Bar Association Tax Section, American Bar Association Civil Rights and Social Justice Section, American Bar Foundation, American College of Tax Counsel (ACTC), International Fiscal Association USA Branch (IFA USA), National Tax Association (NTA), and National Women’s Law Center (NWLC).
The series will start on July 23, with the pathbreaking work the OECD has been doing on tax and gender, developing the notion that gender blind is not gender neutral, and will feature Grace Perez-Navarro, the Deputy Director of the OECD’s Centre for Tax Policy and Administration, and Joanne Shelling, Senior Policy Advisor at the OECD’s Forum on Tax Administration; it will be moderated by Julie Divola, Chair-Elect of the ABA Tax Section.
It will continue on July 30 with a focus on the US pandemic effects, which disproportionately affected women, featuring Yvette Lind, Assistant Professor at the Copenhagen Business School, Elaine Maag, Principal Research Associate at the Tax Policy Center, and Amy Matsui, Director, Income Security and Senior Counsel at the National Women’s Law Center.
The series will conclude on August 6 with a discussion that looks to the future, examining how some of the pandemic responses provide a natural experiment in gender neutral distribution of benefits, which could pave the way for a serious discussion of a universal basic income (which is what the three pandemic-motivated stimulus payments provided); that discussion will feature Nina Olson, former National Taxpayer Advocate and now the Director of the Center for Taxpayer Rights, and Miranda Fleischer, Professor of Law at the University of San Diego Law School and will be moderated by Alice Abreu, Professor of Law at Temple Law School.
Each panel session will be one hour long, from 1:00 to 2:00 Eastern Time on each of the three days.
