Yvette Butler, President of Capital One Investing
"My grandmother is one of the most inspiring women I’ve encountered. She was one of the first business women I knew and taught me many management lessons over the years. As the manager of multiple family businesses including a farm, convenience store and auto repair shop, she taught me to the value of being a clear communicator. She was nothing if not direct. She was incredibly insightful - knowing what personalities would best work together, and which employee was the best fit for each job. She was also fiercely protective of our family, who were also her employees, and taught me how important it is to put your team first."
"I also think very highly of Sallie Krawcheck, owner and chair of Ellevate Network and former president of Bank of America’s Global Wealth & Investment Management group. Sally has served as a great role model for women in banking, and I appreciate how vocal she’s been on issues like increasing the number of female senior executives and board members, and how workplace diversity can positively impact the bottom line.”
