Women @ SB

W@SB is Semler Brossy’s firm-wide initiative focused on supporting and empowering women in the workplace.

Our mission is to create a workplace that promotes inclusivity, representation, and success for all women. W@SB supports Semler Brossy’s diversity and inclusion goals, as well as supporting personal growth and development, which aligns closely with Semler Brossy’s values. W@SB hosts quarterly events to discuss relevant topics and share experiences to develop a close community of support.  

Selection of Prior Meetings: 

December 2019: Panel with External Female Leaders 

W@SB invited Lynn Baranski (Managing Director at Blackrock), Shannon Sullivan (CHRO at Dave, former CHRO at Hulu), and Kristin Chambers (VP, Strategic Initiatives at McKesson) to speak to us about their experiences as women in the workplace. 

July 2020: Discussion of 13th 

In light of the murder of George Floyd and the subsequent social and racial justice movement, we discussed the movie 13th, which discusses the connections between mass incarceration and racial inequality in the U.S. Participants were broken into breakout rooms of 5-6 people to help foster discussion and used the Influence Film Club discussion guide to help ground the conversations. 

September 2020: Discussion of Miss Representation 

W@SB discussed the movie Miss Representation which covers how the portrayal of women in media often makes it difficult for women to feel powerful and achieve leadership positions. While the film was released back in 2011, it is still, if not even more so, relevant in this day and age.  

February 2021: Discussion of Paula Stone Williams’ TEDx Talk “I’ve lived as a man & a woman – here’s what I learned” 

Participants gathered to discuss Paula Stone Williams’ TEDx Talk “I’ve lived a man & a woman – here’s what I learned”. As a transgender woman, Paula Stone Williams has lived as both a man and a woman and shares her wisdom in this talk.
