The Evolution of a Female CBD Executive
I remember sometime around 2007, sitting in the boardroom for a publicly-traded company I ran. Ten men sat around a table with me; a potential investor was on speakerphone. We were requesting $10 million in funding from him.
"Honey," he said to me. "What if I didn't give you $10 million, but I gave you $100 million instead? How would you spend it?"
It was a misogynistic and loaded question that I knew he would never ask my male colleagues. Without losing my cool, I remained silent for 20 seconds, relishing the uncomfortable silence. Then I said, "I'd go to Neiman Marcus, of course! What else would I do with the money?"
