I had the pleasure of seeing Jennifer Sherman - Senior Director of Applications Strategy at Oracle - speak live at the TEDxFidiWomen event last fall, and her talk resonated SO deeply with me.
“Imagine a world in which we evaluate corporations not by the percentage of women in power, but by the percentage of women who are happy.” ~ Jennifer Sherman
Since then I’ve been meaning to do a blog post expounding upon all that was stirred in me, but alas, life has been fabulously busy. Most notably being a very happy woman in my new workplace.
However, I absolutely LOVE the message she delivered, and I constantly bring it up with ambitious, entrepreneurial women in my life. Come to think of it, there really isn’t much more that needs to be said, as she delivers it flawlessly and with so much truth and heart.
So, without further ado, please stop everything you’re doing right now, and watch/listen to Jennifer Sherman’s TEDx talk:
