Carole Baskin, is that you?


Wills are less important than they used to be

So most of your accounts be it bank, roth, 401k, brokerage, etc, all have named beneficiaries. These pre-empt a will.

My will names all non-liquid assets.


Most likely spouse but I’m curious to know the correct answer

Get a will and it’s whom ever you want 👍🏻

Look up probate court. You do not want to die without a will or trust as the State is the decision maker from that point.

You can specify beneficiaries and contacts.

Make a will, add ur spouse as beneficiary everywhere. Probate is a painful process if u have real estate.

We are exploring having a third party come in and assess our I&D efforts across our company. We have many locations across North America. Is anyone aware of an entity who does this? We have found questionnaires through target organizations and have done anonymous employee surveys but are hoping to find someone who can do an assessment for gender, minorities, disabilities, 2SLGBTQ+, etc. and provide feedback on the actual employee experience and where we may have blind spots.
