MEET THE WOMEN OF 85 BROADS
Trailblazers. Adventurers. Entrepreneurs. Parents. Givers. Survivors. Officers. Ambassadors. Visionaries.
Wall Street trailblazer Janet Hanson introduces us to the extraordinary women of 85 Broads, the independent network she founded in 1999 for women professionals who currently or formerly worked for investment banking powerhouse Goldman Sachs.
The name of the network is a humorous play on Goldman's address, 85 Broad Street in NYC. Today this phenomenal network has grown into a global community that reaches across cultures, borders, career paths, and generations to connect and empower over 10,000 members around the world. It now includes women from the leading graduate business schools and undergraduate campuses through the network's unique “Broad2Broad” and “Broad2Be” co-mentoring partnerships.
“WOW!! More Than 85 Broads is smashing, funny, sad, penetrating, revealing and wholly relevant. On behalf of my three daughters who will be facing the working world after 2010, I thank you. Their lives will be immeasurably enriched by the book and the incredible network you've created.”-PETER D. KIERNAN, former Partner of Goldman Sachs and Chairman of the Christopher Reeve Foundation
“Janet Hanson isn't just an incredible networker. Nor is she simply a Wall Street success story and a prosperous entrepreneur. There is only one way to describe Janet Hanson: a force of nature.” -SUZANNE WOOLLEY, “Inspire Others,” Money for Women
A leading entrepreneur and champion for women in business, Janet Hanson spent 14 years on Wall Street with Goldman Sachs before founding Milestone Capital, a $2 billion money management company which is one of the only women-owned firms of its kind in the United States. In addition, she is a Managing Director and Senior Adviser to the President of Lehman Brothers. 85 Broads is her passion, and she is frequently invited to speak at corporate events, on campuses, and in the media about the profound impact of her inspirational network. Janet received a B.A. from Wheaton College in Massachusetts and an M.B.A. from Columbia Graduate School of Business.
Highly recommended as a gift for a woman of any age, or self.
Reading the stories of how these women did, will inspire how you think about work and the endless possibilities for a successful life.
I wished the chapter wouldn't end and was pleased to realize I still had hundreds of pages left to read!!!
Really depressing read - did not make me feel empowered, but rather I felt like a failure, not having complicated what these women have. Did not finish readingPublished 7 days ago by Hill Town Trader
