Interview Tidbit: Janet Hanson of 85 Broads

On this exciting book journey we have the pleasure of interviewing nearly 100 women who are running interesting, inspiring, and innovative companies. While we of course will be including lots of details in the book and discussing the interviews over the next year, in the meantime we wanted to share a few tidbits from each amazing interview!

We were thrilled to have the pleasure of speaking to Janet Hanson, founder of 85 Broads - a leading global network of professional women.

There was a lot to learn from Janet's experiences and story! A couple things that we were left musing about:

Adelaide - I thought it was so interesting that Janet was really able to reframe ex-corporate employees as "alumni" in a way that her former firm wasn't and couldn't appreciate. Janet instinctively knew the value in creating this kind of affinity both to the firm and amongst the women who had left.

Amy - I was impressed by how Janet really saw a need for herself and her peers - connecting the women in finance who were exiting in droves - and decided to create an innovative solution. That solution has morphed and evolved over the years into a formidable business with tremendous global reach and social capital.

Thank you, Janet!

- Adelaide & Amy
