A Curated Social Impact Weekly Job Digest—3/6/15

This week’s issue honors Women’s History Month. I’m in awe of women like Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, Sandra Day O’Connor, Audrey Hepburn, Eleanor Roosevelt, Aung San Suu Kyi, Frida Kahlo, Amelia Earhart, Katherine Hepburn, Rosa Parks, Yoko Ono, Gloria Steinem, Maya Angelou, Emma Watson, Beatrix Potter, the Wiliams sisters, and Malala Yousafzai who spoke out, broke boundaries, and challenged stereotypes. But there is still so much more work still to be done. Women hold just 24 or 4.8% of the CEO positions at S&P 500 companies, 20 of the 100 seats in the Senate and 84 or 19.3% of the 435 seats in the US House of Representatives. Let’s thank and acknowledge all the amazing women in our lives. Thank you to my mom, daughters, sister, stepsisters, sisters-in-law, mothers-in-law, stepmom, my BFF’s, and to all my amazing female friends and colleagues who inspire me everyday.

Happy Women’s History Month!
