The latest news on women.
How the Women of The Wing Crafted Their Own Workspace
“There is custom ergonomically designed furniture, communal workspaces and kitchen, a lactation room, a quiet room, signature branded wallpaper and tiles, high ceilings, and lots of natural light. The 10 conference rooms in the space nod to fictional and historical female figures from games (Ms. Pac-Man, Metroid) to books (The Baby-Sitters Club, The Joy Luck Club, Nettie, Celie) to schools (Spelman, Radcliffe).” Architectural Digest, June 24, 2019

For Megan Rapinoe, Boldness in the Spotlight Is Nothing New
“Ms. Rapinoe has led the way in the women’s national team’s lawsuit against U.S. Soccer, accusing the federation of gender discrimination. She has referred to herself as “a walking protest” of the Trump administration. On the field and off, she has relished the big stage and has sought to use the public platform provided by the success of the national team to advance both women’s soccer and broader social issues. NYTimes, June 27, 2019

Lizzo Lands Her First Big Beauty Contract
“Miller and Lizzo are joined by three other Global UD Citizens, including actress Joey King and musicians Karol G and CL. "Our UD Citizens are dynamic, global voices that stand up for what they believe in," UD founding partner Wende Zomnir shared in a press release. "They are the true definition of 'Pretty Different' and embody the spirit of UD. Because being different doesn't only mean being 'weird' or going against the status quo—it means you being you."

LHI Industry Interview with Dagne Dover Founders: Deepa Gandhi, Melissa Mash, Jessy Dover

Female founders are leading the fashion industry towards a new movement in quality production and loyal customer acquisition. The industry is no longer for those who can produce the most, but for those who can capitalize on what consumers really need. Quality over quantity is a major proponent of Dagne Dover's value proposition and their dedication to this mission is commendable. In our first Industry interview, the founders share their experiences working in e-commerce and how they have forged their own path with Dagne.

“From a design standpoint, we’re very interested in sustainability and are considering launching a collection with materials that have a lighter carbon footprint. We’re hoping to improve our products as people’s needs change, as well as the world around us." – Jessy Dover

“Prioritizing function is really a huge part of our overall ethos, whether it’s through how we approach design, our customer experience, or our social feed. We believe in the two-way dialogue with our customer."
– Deepa Gandhi

Op-eds and letters on advice, experiences, and inspiration.

Don’t ask your boss to rely on memory or to simply trust that you’re being underpaid when you can bring documentation to show it. For example, if you believe you’re being paid below the market rate, you might print out salary information you found on Glassdoor. If you believe you deserve a raise based on merit, you might save an email thread about your last workplace achievement. This documentation is evidence of your value.

One of the foundational challenges of scaling a startup is crafting an efficient development engine across product, engineering, and design that maximizes throughput of product innovation with as little thrash, burnout, or stagnation as possible. The hallmark of a well-run development engine is a development cadence that is brisk in bringing new products to market without burning out its builders.

Because we've been waiting for someone to disrupt alcohol.

Haus, A New Drink Start-Up Founded by Helena Price Hambrecht

“We wanted to create something you can drink all night and still feel good. We’re meeting our audience where they are."

A new alcoholic beverage called Haus thinks it can tap into younger consumers’ desire for wellness even in their booze—and introduce a new type of drink to the U.S. The company, launched by startup veteran Helena Price Hambrecht and her husband, Woody, is based on two bets: 1) More and more drinkers, particularly those under 40, want more refined drink choices that also fit within their healthy lifestyles, and 2) It can reach those customers in new ways that upend the traditional alcohol distribution system. 

Haus recently became available via its website this week for $35 a bottle and there’s already a wait-list of over 3,000 people.

We love a good win.
