Teresa loves the “Daring Greatly” speech by President Roosevelt, and she think (when re-gendered) it has so much application to today – how women are reshaping finance and commerce, how we are rethinking the purpose and use of capital. This speech resonates with my philosophy, as she thinks we can’t get mired pointing out the flaws of imperfect solutions, and instead should focus energy on promoting more inclusive research, decision making, and solutions aimed at building a heathier planet and improving the lives of all its inhabitants.
