Overcoming the Gender Gap: Women Entrepreneurs As Economic DriversEntrepreneurship & Small Business

2011 September

This paper explores the intersection of two issues that often are thought of separately: the need for sustained economic recovery in the United States, and the status of women’s entrepreneurship. Despite recent gains, women still lag behind men on key measures of startup activity, and their firms tend not to grow or prosper nearly as much. Typically, this is seen as a ―women’s‖ issue. It is framed as a problem to be dealt with for the benefit of women, in the interest of gender equality. In fact, it is an economic issue that affects everyone.

Pledge to Give Away Fortunes Stirs DebatePhilanthropy

2010 November 10

WITHOUT a doubt, the biggest event in philanthropy this year was the Giving Pledge, a commitment by 40 of the wealthiest Americans to give away at least half of their fortunes, about $600 billion. Now, about three months later, the pledge has not yet visibly inspired new major gifts or attracted additional signatures but has surely created discussion and debate, about the wealthy, their giving and what it says about our society.

Power of Talk: Who Gets Heard and WhyBusiness Employment & Leadership

1995 September

Using research carried out in a variety of workplace settings, linguist Deborah Tannen demonstrates how conversational style often overrides what we say, affecting who gets heard, who gets credit, and what gets done. Tannen's linguistic perspective provides managers with insight into why there is so much poor communication. Gender plays an important role. Tannen traces the ways in which women's styles can undermine them in the workplace, making them seem less competent, confident, and self-assured than they are.

Power of the Purse: Gender Equality and Middle-Class SpendingEconomic Growth & Development

2009 August 5

In the BRICs and N-11 countries, gender gaps in education, employment, health and political representation are narrowing. At the same time, laws and social norms that have discriminated against women are shifting in many countries.Together, these factors are giving women greater decision-making power. Improving gender equality coincides with the rapid growth of the “global middle class.” Sectors likely to benefit from women’s growing buying power include food, healthcare, education, childcare, apparel, consumer durables and financial services.

RSF Soical Finance: A New Foundation for Portfolio ManagementBusiness Employment & Leadership


In this paper we will question many of the assumptions that govern investment management policies and practices today, and propose new principles that bring portfolio theory into the 21st century. We envision three primary audiences for this work: • Investors who have a deep desire to radically rethink their investment portfolios based on prudent foundational principles • Investment professionals who have been schooled in Modern Portfolio Theory (MPT), who see the inadequacies in that theory, particularly in the context of current market realities, and who are willing to propose practical changes to the portfolios they manage or advise based on these foundational principles • Academicians who can use and expand these foundational principles to build forward-think- ing portfolio management theses
