This week’s money mood: Winning at work

On the eve of the world’s biggest global sporting event, we’re thinking about all the women+ who play for something bigger. We’re also thinking about the ways an athlete’s expertise goes far beyond setting and achieving personal goals (although goal setting is an important skill in the workplace!).

Over the past few years (and weeks), women+ in sports have been subjected to seemingly relentless mistreatment from their organizations — from battles over pay disparities to racist and outdated restrictions that keep them from competing entirely. They’ve had to engage in these battles in public, often without much to show for it. In fact, they seem to lose a lot more than they gain.

Yet even though change comes gradually, women and non-binary athletes are pushing their sports forward. They’re getting their W’s, on and off the field. And each W feels like another example for women+ everywhere, demonstrating how to confidently (and relentlessly!) assert yourself until your career looks how you want it to — and your industry finally starts expecting the same standards from the next woman who comes along. Here are some key takeaways inspired by women+ athletes.

You’re all MVPs,
