This will be short and sweet today – catching up after our move last week!
First article comes from the Dallas morning news ‘Female Venture Capital Funds alter the Status Quo.’ If you cannot join the VC boys club, start your own! http://www.dallasnews.com/business/small-business/20150418-female-run-venture-capital-funds-alter-the-status-quo.ece
From Bloomberg, an academic journal told female scientists if they wanted their work published, they needed to team up with a man: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-04-30/academic-journal-tells-female-scientists-work-with-a-man-if-you-want-to-get-published
In the aftermath of the Ellen Pao case, Sheryl Sandberg did an interview with Bloomberg and Richard Branson and noted that while for men, success and likability are correlated, the opposite is true – the more successful a woman is, the less she is liked and seen as a sympathetic figure. This may explain why powerful women are treated so negatively in the press. The full article can be found here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/04/24/sheryl-sandberg-ellen-pao_n_7137420.html
And on a sad note, Sheryl Sandberg’s husband passed away suddenly. Aside from being a successful entrepreneur in his own right, he was a man that also helped his wife find success on her own terms. By all accounts their marriage was a true partnership. My thoughts and prayers go out to their family: http://fortune.com/2015/05/02/remembering-dave-goldberg/
