I was able to tune in to the Treasury Webcast I mentioned yesterday in my entry but I am sorry to say, major disappointment.
Yes of course we need more mentoring of young women, yes men need to get over their biases, yes we need to encourage more young women to get MBAs, yes people need more financial education, yes women need to know their power, but do we need to gather the most powerful women in finance with the Treasury Secretary in a live web-cast to be talking about it, or are there other things slightly more important? I really don’t mean to be negative as a convening like this is a positive step, but I worry that the box is now checked for having the conversation about women and finance. I am sure I could come up with a few more but this blog is turning in to a rant… Have a great night.
Stretching is often practiced as an aside before and after exercising, sometimes even forgotten altogether. Start with the neck – Slowly nod forward (mean for your chin to touch your chest) and backward (mean for your chin to touch the ceiling). Shoulders and Upper body: Bring your arms up by the side of your body, keep them straight, forming a T-shape with your body, hold for 5 seconds. Then gently swing your arms from side to side by turning your waist and upper-torso (not your knees). Upper body and back: Raise your arms straight up then bend down as to touch the ground, hold for 5 seconds. Waist: Raise your arms straight up as in the previous exercise and this time tilt your upper torso to the left (hold for 5 seconds) then to the right (hold for 5 seconds) without moving your lower body. Then place your hands on your hips and circle your waist 5 times clockwise, 5 times anticlockwise.

Hips: Lean your upper body forward slightly and lift one straight leg behind you (hold for 5 seconds). Then, stand up straight, lifting one leg out to the side by about 6 to 12 inches (hold for 5 seconds). Feet: grasp a sturdy chair for support, stand straight and raise yourself up onto your toes eight to 15 times. I have to say these tips are great to get into a regular stretching routine, but I’d like to add that you should put on some music in the background.

Because I was so hopeful that after a horrendous financial crisis characterized by almost a complete lack of women in positions of power and influence that this convening would lead to some powerful statements and better yet, action steps, that would help diversify the power structure in finance.
To warm up move your arms and legs until you feel your body temperature is higher and your heart beats a little bit faster (jog on the spot, skip, jog knees up, star jumps, shake arms, shake legs, etc.). Place your hands on your knees and circle your knees 5 times clockwise, 5 times anti-clockwise.

Place the ball of one foot slightly behind you and circle the ankle 5 times clockwise then anti-clockwise.

How about a DEEPER conversation about the evidence, the research, that supports the position that adding women in critical mass improves decision making? We have the evidence ( see the NCRW report and more ) that women face real barriers to entry in finance, and that adding talented women could lead to a more stable system overall, but it could be that we have a whole lot of talk and nothing really happens, and then we have another financial meltdown and people say once again what could be different next time. Once your head is back in the starting position (looking forward), turn your head to the left (hold for 5 seconds), then to the right (hold for 5 seconds).
How about speaking truth about the ‘boys clubs’ that exist at most financial institutions and how to break through the barriers that continue to exist once and for all? Try to use ONLY the muscles in the neck and limit movements further down the body in your shoulders or waist. How about brainstorming concrete ways the government working with the private sector can get more money to women entrepreneurs because we KNOW women face barriers in accessing capital? Finally, gently and slowly, roll your head a couple of times in the clockwise direction, a couple of times anticlockwise.
