“'Equity' on Wall Street and the Big Screen: Wall Street’s Gendered Culture in Real Life and the Movies”
Wednesday, March 8, 2017, 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM

Join us for a timely and lively discussion featuring Candace Straight, one of the first female investment bankers on Wall Street and the executive producer of the financial thriller "Equity," and Dr. Melissa Fisher, an anthropologist, educator and the author of Wall Street Women, a history of women on Wall Street from the 1950s to the 2000s.

Hear first-hand how the cross-cultural Wall Street “gendered workplace” has influenced the trajectory of women’s careers on Wall Street and continues to impact both men and women in the industry. Ms. Straight and Dr. Fisher will also discuss the relevant themes from "Equity" and how these themes demonstrate how far women have come – and how far they still have to go – to reach the top in this male-dominated industry.

Talk followed by Q&A and book signing. $5 tickets include Museum admission; members and students free. Register today.
