Benchmark female partner
Sarah Tavel has joined venture capital firm Benchmark Capital as its sixth general partner, after having been with rival Greylock since Before that Tavel was a product manager with Pinterest, for which she had co-lead a Series A investment in her prior role with Bessemer Venture Partners. Why it matters: Tavel is the first-ever female general partner at Benchmark, a San Francisco-based firm known for being the early money in such companies as eBay, Twitter and Uber. She also will have more influence than do new partners at many other VC firms, as Benchmark is a "flat" organization that splits its investment profits evenly among its partners, without employing junior investment staffers. Background: Tavel's hiring comes about nine months after Scott Belsky stepped down as general partner with Benchmark, but it seems that Belsky had a role in identifying Tavel as his replacement.SEE VIDEO BY TOPIC: Annie Thorisdottir Does DT
Conseguir libro impreso. In this important new book, Lindsay Blohm and Ashley Riveira provide law students with valuable information about the state of gender equity and family-friendly policies in the country's top law firms. The result is a candid and revealing account that will hopefully foster a badly needed dialogue among law firms, law students, and law schools about the barriers that continue to impede women's advancement in the workplace.
The book is a critical means to improve the retention and promotion of women in the legal profession by facilitating competition, making information public and invigorating a national dialogue. As for law graduates - men and women -, this is a "must read" book on the intangible aspects of law firm life not taught in law school from career development and family-work balance to attitudes, atmosphere, business development, networking and mentoring, all of which could have a major impact on a lawyer's future in the profession.
It is clear that, in the decade that has passed since Suzanne Nossel and Elizabeth Westfall published their version of Presumed Equal, not enough progress has been made towards the retention and advancement of women in the legal profession.
This latest version should encourage others to continue shining a light on these issues. Since , Presumed Equal has provided valuable insight into the evolving role of women at top law firms. Based on anonymous survey responses from nearly 4, female associates and partners at of the nation's most prestigious firms, this edition continues to provide candid, first-hand observations on issues such as work-life balance, advancement, mentoring, business development, part-time opportunities, gender discrimination and firm leadership on a firm-specific basis.
There are few resources that can boast such a wealth of information to guide those seeking to learn more about a specific firm's culture and to distinguish between similar firms.
Presumed Equal fills this academic and professional void by providing detailed reports on offices of firms. While especially helpful to women seeking opportunities in law firms, this guide also reflects each firm's attitude toward every attorney's need to balance career advancement and non-firm interests.
Furthermore, the reference manual provides insight into a firm's responsiveness to other critical issues such as overall minority advancement and the availability of mentoring. Presumed Equal allows employment candidates to learn the questions to ask and issues to consider when entering any conversation about what firm is right for them. Introduction xiii. Methodology xxii.

In , the presence of women in venture capital made feeble progress at the country's top firms. Union Square Ventures and First Round Capital were among two firms last year to take on their first female general partners. And more and more women are founding female-led firms with an express interest in investing in female-founded startups, in order to break up tech's gender discrepancy. We've rounded up a list of women across the US who are sourcing noteworthy deals, founding female-led firms, cultivating interest in female-founded startups, and making strides in venture capital. What she does: Wilson worked in wholesale retail, media, and tech, before becoming an angel investor.
Benchmark Hires Sarah Tavel as General Partner
While relatively new--and devoted to seeking out what's next for business and the world--it's as old-fashioned as it gets, comprising overwhelmingly male, overwhelmingly white partnerships who overwhelmingly do business with those who remind them of their younger selves. As of last year, at the top venture firms , only 8 percent of investing partners were women. Two percent of venture capitalists were Hispanic. Not even 1 percent were black. In September , General Catalyst hired its first female managing partner. A handful of brand-name appointments won't change an industry overnight. Being the only woman on an all-male team is generally not fun, and research shows that one woman on an otherwise all-male public-company board won't make much difference.
I enjoy Emily Chang's conversations and interviews on Bloomberg News. I also enjoyed her book. I'm not surprised by the harassment and sexual assaults on women by men who are CEOs, managers I remember sitting down in my first classroom at the University of Massachusetts Amherst on an August day almost a decade ago.

Я лишь хотел спросить, есть ли в городе клубы, где собираются молодые люди - панки. - Клубы. Для панков? - переспросил бармен, странно посмотрев на Беккера. - Да. Есть ли в Севилье такое место, где тусуются панки.
- No lo se, senor. He знаю. Но уж определенно не здесь! - Он улыбнулся.
Бринкерхофф растерянно постоял минутку, затем подбежал к окну и встал рядом с Мидж. Та показала ему последние строчки текста. Бринкерхофф читал, не веря своим глазам. - Какого чер… В распечатке был список последних тридцати шести файлов, введенных в ТРАНСТЕКСТ.
Но это значит, что пароль неимоверной длины. Стратмор пожал плечами: - Стандартный коммерческий алгоритм. Насколько я могу судить, пароль из шестидесяти четырех знаков. В полном недоумении Сьюзан посмотрела в окно кабинета на видневшийся внизу ТРАНСТЕКСТ.
Глядя на экран, Фонтейн увидел, как полностью исчезла первая из пяти защитных стен. - Бастион рухнул! - крикнул техник, сидевший в задней части комнаты. - Обнажился второй щит.
Последний шанс. Но мы его упустили.
Шифровалка исчезла. ГЛАВА 57 В туалетных комнатах шифровалки не было окон, и Сьюзан Флетчер оказалась в полной темноте. Она замерла, стараясь успокоиться и чувствуя, как растущая паника сковывает ее тело. Душераздирающий крик, раздавшийся из вентиляционной шахты, все еще звучал в ее ушах. Вопреки отчаянным попыткам подавить охвативший ее страх Сьюзан явственно ощущала, что это чувство завладевает ею безраздельно.
Сидит тридцать шесть часов подряд. Бедняга. Наверное, жена сказала ему не возвращаться домой. Я слышал, она его уже достала. Мидж задумалась. До нее тоже доходили подобные слухи.
Стратмор покачал головой: - Это шифр совершенно иного рода. - Иного рода? - Сьюзан смотрела на него вопрошающе. Невзламываемый шифр - математическая бессмыслица.
