Not-so-fun-fact: There are more CEOs named John than female CEOs altogether. 

Shout-out to Luna BarMotivate Design and this panel of queens behind me for helping to make the wage gap history last night, and special thanks to our event partners WestHouse New York and The Bouqs Company!

Joining me for the panel discussion were a few of my favorite female entrepreneurs and business owners, Mona Patel, Rosie Pope, Tracey Edouard, Sally Wood, Andrea Sullivan and Palak Patel

Motivate Design Presents: Food for Thought Leaders

If there's one thing I love as much as innovation, it's food, and this week I got to celebrate both.

I joined forces with Motivate Design and food industry experts from Maple, Freshly, Epicurious, OurHarvest and Chef Palak Patel for a live panel at Motivate Design HQ in the Financial District. After sharing their individual philosophies on food - from sources and preparation to consumption - the panelists shared key industry trends, from the growing relationship between tech and food to the importance of education when it comes to nutrition and food quality.

Head to Facebook for the live panel discussion, and check out some of my favorite snaps below.
