I’m breaking from the usual format of our newsletter this week, given the recent events that have affected multiple communities to which I belong.
Yesterday, I felt like I was on the verge of a breakdown after spending hours calling friends who live in Boulder, Colorado, where a mass shooting took place and 10 lives were lost. This came on the heels of a week of difficult conversations with family members about the mass shooting that took place in Atlanta last week and took the lives of 8, including 6 East Asian women.
Ladies Night at the Grammys. Female artists smashed expectations at the 63rd Grammy Award celebration that took place last Sunday evening. This is the first year that four separate women won the top four Grammy awards. Billie Eilish won record of the year for the second year in a row. Megan Thee Stallion won best new artist and became the first female rapper to win best rap song. Taylor Swift won album of the year, making her the first female performer to win the award three times. H.E.R. won song of the year. Mickey Guyton became the first Black female…
Jobs? Monday was International Women’s Day and the theme for 2021 was #choosetochallenge to raise awareness about the systemic barriers to economic and social opportunities. These barriers have many names like the glass ceiling, bamboo ceiling, glass cliff, double-jeopardy, likeability trap, … you get the picture. And no, it’s not about whether womxn can have it all.

Women’s History Month. March 1 marks the beginning of National Women’s History month, a time when our nation celebrates the vital role of womxn in shaping American society. This includes courageous historical icons such as Rosa Parks and Harriet Tubman, who refused to accept the unjust circumstances that were forced upon Black Americans and inspired others to do the same. Their bravery paved the path for Black womxn such as Roz Brewer, who became the first Black female CEO to ever lead a Fortune 500 company.
Breaking barriers. Ms. Brewer isn’t the only woman who is making inroads into previously…
Showcasing Black Americans: Several media outlets have done an amazing job of showcasing prominent figures and incredible stories of Black Americans in celebration of National Black History Month, including the Washington Post and their new publication The Lily and Standford’s feature of the documentary called “A place at the table: The story of the African American Pioneers of Silicon Valley” by Kathy Cotton.

First. Our nation welcomed a new administration and most notably, our nation’s first female vice present, Kamala Harris. Not only is Vice President Harris the first woman to assume this position, she is also the first Black American and the first person of South Asian descent to hold the second highest office in the land. This represents a significant milestone for minority women in the U.S.
