Change Begins With Yourself

Invest in things that align with your values

“If you want to create change in the world, you can start by creating change in your backyard.”

Last week on The Global League of Women Podcast, I spoke with Monique Woodard, an angel investor based in San Francisco. She is focused on investing at the intersection of technology and newly powerful consumer groups as a result of demographic shifts - Women, people of color, and the elderly. She recently published a 65-page report called Gray New World, detailing this demographic sea change and the types of opportunities she sees as an investor. 

As a serial entrepreneur and rising VC, she shares how she overcomes the challenges of raising outside capital, especially as a minority woman.

In This Episode, You Will Learn:

  • The importance of having the right friends in your life, regardless of professional success

  • How to think about career transitions and starting your entrepreneurial journey

  • The three big demographic shifts that Monique is actively investing into 

  • Communication and relationship best practices

🔥Voices That Inspire

Reading: Rihanna’s Interview in Vogue: Rihanna Talks New Music, Fenty Skincare & Her Plans To Have “3 Or 4 Kids”

“You don’t have a lot of time to tolerate shit, you know? You put so much on your plate. When you’re overwhelmed, you need to start cutting things out. And I’m overwhelmed too much. What’s happening now is that I’m going back to black and white.

My grey area is shutting down.”

Playing: Boss B*tch by Doja Cat

I've been a stallion, you've been a sea horse
Don't need a report, don't need a press run
All of my bad pics been all my best ones
I wear the hat and I wear the pants
I am advanced so I get advance
And I do my dance and cancel the plans
Said, boo, don't be mad 'cause you had a chance, drop

🔥Women We Admire

  • Dr. Theresa Tam, Dr. Heather Morrison, and five other women who represent 7 of Canada’s 14 national or provincial chief medical officers. Given their leadership, they have had their faces emblazoned on t-shirts, their portraits grace street murals, and their press conferences have inspired YouTube performances. This is an exciting and important trend, compared to previously only 12% of Canada’s deans of medicine were women compiled for 2018-19.

  • Shaheena Janjuha-Jivraj for her article in Forbes titled, “The Voice Of Women Leaders Is Critical Today More Than Ever”. She discussed the The Reykjavik Index, which measures the level of comfort in society towards women in leadership positions.

  • Geeta Rao Gupta for co-authoring an article for the World Economic Forum detailing that 70% of the world's healthcare staff are made up of women, but only 25% of global leaders are female. She stressed that “leaders dictate where funding and research goes, from vaccine development to social safety nets. Without women in these positions, subsequent decisions will not adequately address the hurdles women face.”
