Taxpayers will be asked on their tax return if they and their dependents had minimum essential health insurance coverage for each month of 2015. For those who had employer-sponsored health insurance, such as that provided by Ithaca College, it will only be necessary to check the appropriate box on your tax return to affirm coverage. No further action is necessary. If you are prompted for a 1095, it is important to know that the government delayed the deadline to March 31, 2016 for employers to generate the form 1095-C.

Transformational Diversity takes our D&I work and our organization as a whole to the next level. Diversity 1.0 focused on representation. Diversity 2.0 focused on Inclusion to ensure respect in the workplace. Today we think that’s not enough and our focus is on Transformational Diversity—a shift to a new level that actually requires us to operate differently. In this stage, we are able to enter the workplace with new mindsets & skillsets, allowing us to transform the situations we’re in and the organizations we lead because we’re actually able to see and respond to greater complexity.
