Donna Brazile Explains Why She’s Working for Fox News

Donna Brazile, who has twice served as the interim chair of the Democratic National Committee, is one of the most prominent political strategists of recent times. Brazile, Al Gore’s campaign manager in 2000, was the first African-American woman to run a campaign for a major-party Presidential nominee; she had previously worked on the Presidential campaigns […]

Three Podcasts to Listen To in May: A Study of Classical Music, The Legacy of “Cops,” and Healing in Toronto’s Gay Community

A few months ago, I was swept off my feet by “Aria Code,” from WQXR, a wondrous narrative podcast about opera with an amusingly ridiculous name. Recently, another enjoyable podcast about music, from American Public Media, made its début, with an even more ridiculous name: “Decomposed.” (It’s about composers!) It’s hosted (and co-written) by Jade […]

4 Secrets for Designing a More Joyful Space

In July 2017, when Ingrid Fetell Lee and her husband, Albert Lee, bought their three-bedroom home in East Hampton, New York, Ingrid was writing Joyful: The Surprising Power of Ordinary Things to Create Extraordinary Happiness ($20; amazon.com). For 10 years, Ingrid had researched the things that universally bring people joy (that fleeting feeling, different from happiness, that we get seeing […]

The Infrastructure of Joy

I’m not generally known as a happy person. I don’t think that’s because I’m unhappy, exactly, or because I’m a cynic or a naysayer, even though I have my moments. No, I think it’s because I’m allergic to the idea of happiness as anything but a shorthand for some vague and abstract notion of contentment. Being happy is great, […]

The Powerful Message Black Panther's Costume Designer (and Oscar Winner) Ruth E. Carter Wants to Send Through Clothing

Just 20 minutes into Black Panther, one can immediately sense that the 2018 superhero film is unlike any other in cinematic history. Aside from its strong Black female leads, part of its appeal is due to the fashion. A pivotal scene where this can be seen (and felt) is during “challenge day” in the fictional African […]

Black Panther Costumer Designer Ruth E. Carter on Three Decades of Dressing Superheroes

Ruth E. Carter’s resume as a costume designer reads like a roll call of some of the most culturally significant films of the past three decades: Malcom X, Selma, Do the Right Thing, What’s Love Got to Do With It?, Mo’ Better Blues. But her latest film, the revolutionary and deservedly much-hyped Black Panther, might be her most notable project yet. With […]

A Morgan Stanley Exec Explains Why the Bank Is Investing In a Business Opportunity That's Been Under the Radar for Years

As I like to say, where there’s a market inefficiency, there’s a commercial opportunity. We know that only a tiny fraction of venture capital investment flows to women and people of color. Whether because of lack of experience with this demographic, or lack of imagination or understanding, the consequences have had profound societal ramifications. From […]

Morgan Stanley’s Carla Harris Builds Stronger Businesses Through Diversity

Carla Harris built her reputation on Wall Street by shepherding billions of dollars through initial public offerings. She now oversees Morgan Stanley’s Multicultural Innovation Lab. To gain an edge, she says, companies must start by having “a lot of different people in the room.” Here is her playbook for attracting—and keeping—diverse talent. LOOK HARDER Hiring […]

Leadership Lessons From One Of The First Female Fighter Pilots

On the surface, it might not seem like Carey Lohrenz’s old office has much in common with the rhythms and interactions found in the typical modern workplace. That’s because, back in the ’90s, her job as a naval aviator meant she spent most of her time in the cockpit of an F-14 Tomcat, a beast […]

Ford's 2019 Look Ahead Suggests 'Trust' Opening For Automakers Over Silicon Valley Rivals

Ford’s futurist has picked up some sobering data on how consumers globally view digital technology and its purveyors. And in the process, Sheryl Connelly may be giving her bosses at Ford and at other automakers some interesting grist for their approach to autonomous driving.
