Sallie's Opinion

The Emotional Rollercoaster of Confirmation Hearings

 

I don’t cry very often. You don’t get very far on Wall Street, where I spent my career before Ellevest, as a crier. But there’s just something about Supreme Court nominations that brings out the waterworks in me.

During Brett Kavanaugh’s hearing, listening to Christine Blasey Ford give her testimony about him, I remember sitting in the Chicago airport, between flights, and watching it on my phone. I cried. I watched other women bear witness … and also cry.

The tissues came out again last week for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Senate confirmation hearings. The proceedings seesawed between infuriating exchanges and heart-swelling moments of clarity — each one more riveting than the next.

Tabs we saved for our lunch hour this week

There are a quarter of a million qualified women of color being overlooked for those cream-of-the-crop tech jobs. Here’s how to look for them.

More than 450 companies shared their paid leave policies with theSkimm after that promise was slashed from the Build Back Better bill.

Even as women are making financial strides in this booming economy, they’re still nowhere near catching up to men. (Same goes for women founders and funding, actually.)

Ariana DeBose became the first-ever queer woman of color to win Best Actress in a Supporting Role at the Oscars over the weekend. 🤩

The most-read article in the Ellevest Magazine last week: five women who were firsts in finance history.

Omg OMG the New York Times profiled the woman who runs the TSA’s Instagram. (This is your reminder that missiles aren’t allowed in your carry-on. 💼)
