This Week in Women

I have an exciting announcement. This Week in Women is going Live on Twitter Spaces. Join me on Mondays at 4pm ET for a discussion of this week’s stories as well as conversation with a special guest. The idea is to create content by women, for women. Each week, I will highlight the accomplishments of my guest. We may even open up the floor for questions.

My very first guest on Monday, April 12th is Liz Simmie, Co-Founder of Honeytree Investment Management.


Liz is one of the most prominent voices on ESG investing. She is someone I know from Twitter who I’ve also been dying to meet in real life. I can’t wait to see how the conversation goes. When the market closes on Monday, pull out your phone, open your Twitter app, and look for the purple circles at the top of your screen. Hope to see you there!
