Pocketbook Politics Conf Call Next Tuesday

Ladies, you might find this free conference call interesting to dial into…

Pocketbook Politics is geared toward “professional women watching their dollars and making sense of public policy.”  The last conference call was a legislative update from Rep. Lynne Riley.  What I like about the calls is that a lot of information is relayed in a short amount of time.  We’re all busy professional women – Mama’s got work to do.

As with any group, you’re not going to agree with everything that is said.  I like the education aspect of it; Information is always powerful.  Every woman I’ve met at a Pocketbook Politics event has been top notch.

The next call is next Tuesday, June 12 at 1pm.  If you’d like to sit in on the call, rsvp to [email protected] by tomorrow Noon.  Conference call information will be emailed to you next Monday.

Tuesday’s speaker will be Sonja Eddings Brown.

Ms. Brown, a media consultant in Los Angeles, is the President and Founder of TheKitchenCabinet.US which is now the largest coalition of conservative women in the nation.  Sonja Brown has united the top conservative women’s leaders in America and is spearheading a massive grassroots effort to bring forward a million new women voters in the November 2012 election.  Ms. Brown co-founded the largest charter school in the country after a heated and ground-breaking challenge of the Los Angeles Unified School District and its teachers union.  Granada Hills Charter High School serves 4000 students and employs 300 staff.  It is ranked as one of the top high schools in America and is a lighthouse to education reformers across the country.  Ms. Brown has advised public figures of all kinds, including U.S. Olympic athletes, celebrities and political candidates.

p.s.  Comically, my HBR Daily Stat arrived as I was drafting this post.    I’m personally a fan of the Alpha Male, but the term “Pink-Collar” tickled me…pink 😉

Men Are More Willing to Take “Pink-Collar” Jobs:  The proportion of registered nurses who are male rose from 8.4% to 10.5% between 2000 and 2010, a sign that men are encroaching on female-dominated occupations in the U.S.   Jobs such as nursing and teaching offer financial stability and good quality of life, and now that gender stereotypes are eroding, men are more willing to enter what used to be known as “pink-collar” jobs.

    I heard Charlie applied for a ‘pink-collar’ job, but was turned away when the garterbelt wouldn’t stretch around his thigh.

    I’m banned for life now, aren’t I?

      I just returned from Vidalia. It’s not a garter belt. It’s an onion belt I have tied around my waist. Now get off my lawn.

    Which was the style at the time.

    Mama has a lot of work to do, indeed. I was on the phone this morning discussing some policy matter or another with a make colleague when he paused and asked, “Are you … doing dishes?” Well, they sure aren’t going to do themselves. Ladies, don’t ever let anyone try to convince you that suburban political life isn’t totally glamorous.
