TEDWomen: Lady Lectures

in Feminizzle

This weekend marked the first-ever TEDWomen conference, dedicated to exploring how women and girls are reshaping the future. TED is working on putting all the talks on their website, but for now check out this awesome talk from Halla Tomasdottir, an Icelandic businesswoman who got her company Audur Capital through the economic collapse by applying 5 "feminine" values to financial services.
