Remaining Films in AOL MAKERS Series Premiere - MAKERS: Women in Business and MAKERS: Women in Politics

Following the premiere of the fifth film in the new MAKERS series, MAKERS: Women in Business last week, the final film MAKERS: Women in Politics will premiere on Tuesday, November 4 at 9pm ET/PT on PBS. The film profiles the long, slow fight for female political representation over the last century, from the first woman elected to Congress in 1916 to a young woman running for Detroit City Council in 2013. The film is narrated by Alfre Woodard.
Trailblazing leaders like Hillary Clinton, Senator Barbara Mikulski,Olympia Snowe, the youngest Republican woman ever elected to the House of Representatives, and Shirley Chisholm, the first African-American woman to serve in Congress, provide a backdrop for younger women like Rashida Tlaib, the first Muslim-American woman elected to the Michigan House. Today's leaders in Washington, including Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), the first female Senator from Massachusetts, Susan Collins (R-ME), who led the Senate in shaping a deal to end the government shutdown, and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), currently the youngest woman serving in Congress, are also represented.

A special screening of the film on MAKERS.com will take place on Wednesday, November 5 at 8pm ET. The film will then be available for streaming anytime on MAKERS.com.

AOL Government Research Finds Potential For Government Savings Using Mobile Technology


AOL Government
is excited to release new research findings about the impact mobile technology is having on the productivity and operations of federal government agencies. The findings confirm a widespread belief that provisioning mobile technology to federal employees would significantly improve productivity and result in cost savings over the long term.

Among the findings:
  • About half (49%) of federal managers surveyed said "government employees like themselves could redeploy at least 7 hours per week toward more productive work if fully enabled to work mobily; 19% said they could redeploy more than 12 hours per week.
  • Three out of four respondents (75%) said "productivity" and "cost savings" will result from mobile technology by making it easier to complete work from the field; 82% said mobile technology would make it easier to telework; 67% said by providing immediate access to agency data through mobile devices, it would facilitate decision making.
