Supplier Diversity Champions program

WASHINGTON - November 4, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Supplier Diversity Champions programpowered by The US Pan Asian American Chamber of Commerce Education Foundation (USPAACC), will officially launch in January 2023 to acknowledge and celebrate the "unsung heroes" of supplier diversity. 

Supplier Diversity Champions ("SD Champions") program breaks new ground in the realm of supplier diversity by including applications from any U.S.-based corporation with at least 750 U.S.-based employees, opening the doors for equitable recognition of supplier diversity programs at varying levels of maturity. The SD Champions program advanced by USPAACC represents a purposeful shift away from awards solely based on a corporation's ability to spend and moves toward a new emphasis that encourages transparency, innovation, inclusion, impact on the community, and integration in supplier diversity programs. 

"By recognizing the unsung heroes of supplier diversity, our SD Champions program is a game changer. We're moving beyond corporate spending and looking more holistically toward transparency, innovation, inclusion, impact on the community, and integration of supplier diversity initiatives in their entirety. We believe that supplier diversity is critical to the success of our nation's economy and contributes to the health, security, and stability of the global supply chain," USPAACC National President and CEO Susan Au Allen said.

"While our program will accept applications beginning January of 2023, we've already received an incredibly positive response to our program from corporations and national certification organizations who want to be part of this effort. This program will draw a new skyline for building and recognizing the true champions of supplier diversity. USPAACC is excited to see our SD Champions program officially open in January and grow beyond the skyline," USPAACC National President and CEO Susan Au Allen stated.

The SD Champions program is supported by USPAACC's chamber partners Disability:IN, NaVOBA, NVBDC, US Black Chambers, and WBENC, respectively.

Suzie’s CBD Treats Expands Their Functional Product Line

Suzie’s CBD Treats Expands Their Functional Product Line DENVER - November 4, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Suzie's CBD Treats, a Colorado-based company manufacturing USDA-certified organic CBD products for pets, has announced the expansion of their product line with two new products.

The new products, Suzie's CBD Anti-Itch Stick and Suzie's CBD Goodbye UTI Drops, are made with function and relief in mind. With both products, each natural and soothing ingredient was carefully chosen with pets in mind.

Suzie's CBD Goodbye UTI Drops for cats were developed with functional ingredients to help relieve discomfort from urinary infections in cats. This product has a salmon oil base with marshmallow root, cranberry, and dandelion root extracts, along with 200 mg of full spectrum CBD oil. While this product is marketed towards cats, small to medium-sized dogs may also benefit from its use. 

"We see a lack of CBD products specifically for cats on the market, and we're proud to add choices for cat owners and will continue to develop more options," says COO Rachel Giagnocavo.

Suzie's CBD Anti-Itch Stick is made with 300 mg of full-spectrum CBD oil and infused with natural healing herbs to target skin conditions such as ringworm, yeast infections, hot spots, and allergies. It comes in a mess-free roll-on tube for easy application.

"Our goal at Suzie's CBD Treats has always been to understand the needs of pets and offer effective, high-quality products to help them live comfortable, full lives," says CEO Caleb Gilmore.

Customers can find the new Suzie's Anti-Itch Stick and Goodbye UTI Tincture in independent retailers across the country and on Suzie's website. SuziesPetTreats.com

Faisal Moghul Co-Publishes Article on Business Partnership Disputes Titled ‘Direct vs Derivative Claims’ With the ALI-CLE’s the Practical Lawyer

Faisal Moghul Co-Publishes Article on Business Partnership Disputes Titled ‘Direct vs Derivative Claims’ With the ALI-CLE’s the Practical LawyerFox & Moghul's managing partner, Faisal Moghul, co-authors publication focusing on differences between direct and derivative claims in shareholder derivative litigation.

FAIRFAX, Va. - November 4, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Attorney Faisal Moghul, partner at the Virginia-based business litigation firm Fox & Moghul, co-publishes article titled "Direct vs Derivative Claims: Permitting Direct Shareholder Actions for Closely Held Corporations" with the American Law Institute's ("ALI"), The Practical Lawyer, in the August, 2022, edition.

The American Law Institute Continuing Legal Education ("ALI-CLE") is a premier national provider of quality CLE products to lawyers since 1947 that delivers an array of legal seminars featuring the country's leading law practitioners, law professors, government regulators, and industry experts (www.ali-cle.org). 

Fox & Moghul is a Fairfax, Virginia-based boutique law firm that focuses on complex business litigation disputes, including shareholder derivative litigation, disputes between and among LLC members and Limited or General partners.

Recently, Mr. Moghul also co-authored a publication with Lexis Nexis on "Choice of Ownership Structure of Real Property" (June 9, 2022), which compares and contrasts the various ownership structures for owning real estate, including LLC, C corporations, S corporations, Limited Partnerships and joint ventures.

Given the sheer number of small and medium sized business partnership disputes that Fox & Moghul handles, attorneys Faisal Moghul and Joseph Rugari decided to author this publication with the goal of providing clarity on the issue of recovery of damages in shareholder derivative litigation.

"My hope is that this article will help attorneys understand the differences between direct and derivative damages," said Faisal Moghul, managing partner at Fox & Moghul.

"This article provides critical guidance for entrepreneurs going through a 'business divorce,'" Moghul said. Among other things, this article analyses controlling Delaware case law, which sets the national standard in shareholder derivative litigation, followed by an examination of Virginia jurisprudence on this issue, and concludes with an argument in favor of permitting direct shareholder action in closely held business disputes. Faisal Moghul utilized his years of experience in this field to research and formulate this article with the help of Joseph Rugari, an associate in the firm's business law practice group.
