Join Ellevate Houston and Pink Petro for a special breakfast in person and online. Wall Street Maven, Ellevate CEO and Ellevest co-founder, Sallie Krawcheck makes her second appearance in the Bayou City. Katie Mehnert, CEO of Pink Petro is a proud Ellevate Executive Council member and has got a special event for members only.
Sallie Krawcheck, one of the most powerful women in finance most recently launched Ellevest, an online investment advisor for women that squarely takes aim at some of the industry's most cherished ideas — or myths — about gender and finance.
Women investors aren't emotionally driven, they don't need more financial education, and they aren't necessarily more risk averse, though their approach to risk is different, said Krawcheck, who gave CNBC an early look. Ellevest is still in beta, but investors can sign up for access.
After a long and storied career on Wall Street, her children’s growing independence helped launch her in a new direction—serial entrepreneur. Krawcheck identifies a number of traits that unite these “third act” career moves—including a strong focus on giving back.
