It’s not 1953: Ellevest CEO Sallie Krawcheck on Workplace Diversity

You know what the right thing to do is...but can you act on it? Today on Morning Brew’s podcast Business Casual, Ellevest co-founder and CEO Sallie Krawcheck is tackling one of the biggest questions in business: workplace diversity.


As Krawcheck sees it, we’ve read enough studies proving a more diverse workplace yields higher returns for investors (15% higher, per recent reports). Now, it’s time to do something about the pay gaps, investing gaps, savings gaps, and more that hold top talent back. 


In this episode of Business Casual, Krawcheck also explains…

  • What companies and CEOs are doing things right
  • Why women-founded startups (think The Wing, Outdoor Voices, Glossier) are thriving
  • Why impact investing doesn’t mean sacrificing returns


She knows what she’s talking about: Prior to building Ellevest, Krawcheck was CEO of Merrill Lynch Wealth Management, CEO of Citi Wealth Management, and CEO at Smith Barney.
