Last Thursday marked our fifth(!) event in our Changing the Conversation series. Generously hosted by ZocDoc, nearly 100 women and men joined us for wine (thanks again to Moore Brothers!), hors d’oeuvres, and thoughtful conversation centered on the importance of the sponsor-sponsee (an outgrowth of the mentor-mentee) relationship. Read on for what our panelists had to say!
Our next featured panelist for our Changing the Conversation spotlight series is Jean Brownhill, Founder and CEO of Sweeten. She gives great insight into the challenges of an evolving company, advice she wished her younger self would have known, and the importance of having allies and champions in your corner. To hear more about Jean's journey, join us this Thursday on October 26th at 6:30pm for our event, Sponsors: How to Find and Manage This Essential Relationship.
Rabia de Lande Long, our moderator for the upcoming event on Sponsors: How to Find and Manage This Essential Relationship, gives us amazing insight into how this theme was conceived, and why it’s such an important conversation to have.
We’re excited to feature some of our panelists for our upcoming event with Changing the Conversation in a series of blogs, where we’ve asked each to describe a challenge, offer a piece of advice to their former selves, and comment on their experiences with being or having a sponsor. Our first featured panelist is Pete Danielsen, Owner of Danielsen Design and the former EVP of Programming for BET Networks. Check out what he has to say below, and don’t forget to get your ticket for the event on October 26th at 6:30pm!
As part of our Changing the Conversation: Empowering Women in Leadership series, we decided it would be valuable to take a closer look at the relationship between women and their finances. To gain a better understanding of why women shy away from investing, and how we can step up our financial games, we hosted a webinar in conjunction with Cameron Hume, VP Direct-to-Consumer Channel at BlackRock.
