Welcome From Our Host – Traci Dority-Shanklin
Welcome to www.MultiEmployerFunds.com, the new home of The World of Multiemployer Benefit Funds podcast, hosted by Traci Dority-Shanklin, the union and client advocate with over twenty-five years of experience in Taft-Hartley funds and DB plans. If you’ve been listening on Buzzsprout, Apple Podcasts, or any of your other favorite podcast providers, then you’re already familiar with the great resource the podcast provides to everyone throughout the multiemployer benefit funds industry and the millions affected by these plans. As the country grappled with the 2020 election, the podcast found its new home in time to launch the next round of episodes to help listeners make sense of the day’s major issues from pension reform to coronavirus to Black Lives Matter and how they affect these plans. If you’re ready to move past talk and into action, then let Traci Dority-Shanklin connect you with industry experts and thought leaders throughout the financial world to bring perspectives and solutions to help effect change in your organizations, your retirements, and your multiemployer benefit plans.
Whether you’re at home, in the car, or on your workout, take a little time away from it all to listen to one of our podcast episodes:
Wendell Young IV, UFCW Local 1776 and International Foundation president, joins Traci for a lively discussion about diversity and his presidency.
