A Woman's View from the Street 6/10/19

Happy Monday!

Celebrating our Limitless Leaders: today we honor Meredith Zevallos. Meredith is a Vice President at JP Morgan and a member of the TXWSW Dallas Networking Committee. Read more about why she gives back:http://txwsw.com/volunteer-spotlight-meredith-zevallos-limitless-leader/

One of the much-touted leadership skills is self-awareness, and a recent Harvard Business Review article notes that while women have the edge in terms of self-awareness, women continue to be underrepresented in senior leadership roles and are paid less, so what gives? It seems that most women underestimate their true value and unintentionally hold themselves back. The full article can be found here.

The next article, from Forbes, is a ranking of the most successful female entrepreneurs in the country which can be found here. What was outstanding about this year’s list is that there are a record 25 female self-made billionaires on the list including Meg Whitman and Oprah Winfrey. Significantly, many of these women made their fortunes by entering gaps in the markets ignored by men. The full article can be found here.

Finally, how many times have we fought tooth and nail to find a solution to a seemingly intractable problem? It turns out the best thing we can do may be to question why we are trying to solve the problem in the first place! It seems that giving up can be a valid solution. The full article can be found here.

You may notice a new addition to our homepage. We have created the Limitless jewelry line to both inspire women and help us in our philanthropy mission of supporting the Young Women’s Preparatory network. Proceeds from the purchase of the Limitless charm go directly to the Young Women’s Preparatory Network. Designed for us by one of the nation’s preeminent jewelry manufacturers, this beautiful, inspirational charm comes in both silver and 14 carat gold and can be worn every day on a bracelet or necklace. Please help us support these deserving students while inspiring all the wonderful women in your life.

Kind regards

Christine
