Taboo Topics in Business
A project of Money & Mimosas
Highly-curated, in-person critical conversations for Bay Area women in business covering a wide array of rich, diverse, candid (and often taboo!) topics we are confronting in the modern workplace. Co-produced by Danetha Doe and Emily Howe, we come together quarterly - in San Francisco - to build strong leadership networks, swap opportunities, and talk about the most pressing elephants in the room of corporate leadership: money, sex and power.
Recent events have included "What Works - and What Doesn't - Driving a Parent-Friendly Workplace" to "Professional Style, Bodies at Work, Sensuality in the Office, and Getting Sh* Done - in the Modern #Metoo Era Workplace.”
