Happy Monday!
Since it is the day after the Super Bowl, I wanted to share a few of the commercials I found very impactful, and it was great to have them shown to such a large audience. My favorites:
Like a girl does not have to be a negative stereotype:
The most important one – a call for the end to domestic violence:
And finally – the solution to inequality – rent-a-man:
While we are in video mode, one more for all the moms out there – what your children watch shapes their world. This TED talk is very insightful: the hidden meaning in kids’ movies:
And back to finance – there was a great article last week in the FT titled “Sexism in the City.” It explores the issue of why women drop out in such great numbers in spite of all the programs set up to retain them:
And why does it matter? Meet Nehal Chopra, the woman who has been posting some of the hedge fund world’s best performance:
Lastly, meet the woman who is single handedly adding more women boards in the UK – it does seem where there is a will there is a way:
We have great events in store for you all in February – in Austin, we have a happy hour at the iconic Shady Grove. Hopefully we will have a beautiful evening to be outside. In Dallas, we have some amazing speakers for our C-Suite Dinner. This is filling up fast, so register early – you will not want to miss being able to have a small format dinner with these amazingly accomplished women. And in Houston, we have a fun evening planned at the Queen Vic Pub & Kitchen. Come out and meet our new committee members and share your ideas for future events!
Kind regards
