Katherine Gehl, frustrated about gridlock in Washington and the damage it is doing to U.S. competitiveness, is joining with other business leaders to back the No Labels movement.  No Labels wants our national policy makers to put aside party politics and focus on solutions to the U.S.’s most daunting challenges (Read more here).  

Learn about the national No Labels movement and its agenda for improving U.S. competitiveness as we welcome Katherine Gehl to our Inspire Kenosha leadership series.

As former CEO of Gehl Foods, one thing Katherine Gehl learned over the course of her career is in order for a company to compete globally, it needs a workforce of skilled self-starters and problem solvers. This is the very definition of competitiveness: businesses are succeeding, while living standards are maintained or rising for average Americans.  But, there’s an imbalance taking place, resulting in an economy doing half of its job, according to a recent Harvard Business School study.

According to Gehl, the challenges we face are systemic, and many require policy action at the national level. Among business leaders from all sides of the political spectrum, there’s fairly broad consensus about the top policy priorities that will help reinvigorate American competitiveness: fix the debt and the tax code, enact comprehensive energy policy, invest in our infrastructure, and strengthen our K-12 education system.

As a business leader, Gehl is deeply concerned about the state of our democracy and its impact on our nation’s economy and American businesses’ competitiveness. Join us to hear Gehl’s insights on the state of our democracy, how local business leaders and the community can become more aware of the problems we face, and how we can become part of a solution.
