Business (and everything else) Needs Both: Wo/Men Win Together, Lose Together

I had the wonderful opportunity to attend SOCAP in San Francisco — a 3,000-person conference with over 100 sessions on social capital markets. A big theme was gender lens investing, or choosing investments based on gender equality rankings.

I consider myself a pretty committed feminist so I attended these forums with much excitement, anticipating the announcement of break-through approaches for uniting women and men once and for all.

Disappointment didn’t take long to set in.
