HBS Working Knowledge
10/30/2000 The daughter of immigrant shopkeepers in Queens, New York, Estée Lauder combined input from customers with her own ambition, intuition, and keen commercial imagination to create a leader in the global market for prestige cosmetics. HBS professor Nancy Koehn tells how Lauder, in the 1940s, turned the appeal of exclusive New York department stores to her own advantage.

Democrats, don't filibuster Neil Gorsuch. For a conservative Republican pick, he is one I'm okay with. He seems reasonable and not self-serving. Instead, Strategize and Negotiate. It's clear you don't know these words or how they work so let me explain. Your guy (Democrats) goes to their guy (Republicans) and says "We will approve Gorsuch if you all agree in writing and announce to the American public that the next open seat goes to Merrick Garland. We all know you stole that seat and you owe it to our past president, the American people, and the concept of fair democracy to give it back. This is an opportunity for you to correct your past wrong, save us the work of having to negotiate when the next seat comes up (I bet Ruth Bader Ginsburg would happily retire if we offered her this opportunity), and show the world we aren't a bunch of petulant children who can't work together. This is a win-win. Now let's figure out a win-win for creating free, universal health care like every other modern country, fair women's health care coverage, paid maternity/paternity leave, better work practices, mental health treatment, proper veteran assistance, fair distribution of wealth, putting checks on corporate greed, monopolies, wealth disparity, inflation, social security, immigration, economic development for underserved/poor/innercity/rural communities, underserved/underfunded public education systems, free college, climate control, fixing our crumbling construction/infrastructure and most importantly this Russia foolishness. We can't void the election. We got played by Russia. We've done it numerous times in other countries. They took the play from our book. Game recognizes Game. We were so arrogant we didn't imagine someone would eventually play us. This is 9/11 all over again. All the signs were there. Half of the government lacked the imagination, intelligence and/or balls to combat it (looking at you Hillary). The other half purposefully ignored it because it helped their guy which is actually an act of treason to allow another country to interfere in our election (looking at you Trump, Ryan, Pence, McConnell, insert numerous dumb, rich white boys in power ruining our country with their racism). Back to Russia...We have dumbed down our people so much with our terrible education system that they are too stupid to ask the right questions or spot fake news. And we have let the greedy white boys really believe that they earned all that wealth and white privilege by their own two hands and they have no responsibility to spread it around even though their ancestors accumulated it by committing the most heinous and disgusting acts against humanity. At least we have good company in our stupidity (looking at you Brexit...pass the privilege tea). Plus, Russia infiltration has rightfully and fortunately shaken the faith of the American people and eroded the already tenuous bit of trust they had in us, their elected officials. We have sucked for so long. So how about we start new today and make it better. Here's another win-win idea...Let's agree to remove Pence. We all know he hates women, could easily be the Grand Wizard of Indiana's vibrant KKK community, and used his personal email when he was conducting business as Governor. Plus he looks creepy as hell...and so does Paul Ryan who also hates women and is probably high ranking in Wisconsin's vibrant KKK community. They are both rich, dumb, white boy racists and I wouldn't be surprised to learn they tortured numerous animals and picnicked at several lynchings in their youth. White boys kill me when they want to ban all Muslims and label them as terrorists. But they don't mark their well-documented, serial killers brothers as terrorists (looking at numerous, robed white men, Bundy, Dahmer, Wayne Gacy, Roof. If you wanna know what happened to all those missing Black girls in DC, I would start launch an investigation in the rich, white secret societies.) Let's get rid of them both because they have skated too long on their "All-America" looks and white privilege and couldn't pass a health care bill if they had 8 years to work on it. Let's make Bernie Speaker, Hillary VP, and keep Trump as Prez. We cheated Bernie so we owe him. And half the country wanted Hillary and half (mostly the racists and undereducated) wanted Trump. But Trump is the President we deserve because America is built on racism and we consistently let the ignorant, racists sacrifice the good of all for their idiot white supremacy. This is how our democracy works. Every person gets representation and a voice. It would be nice if we educated the racism and ignorance out of them, but since we are snowflakes who don't see color and we let the rich turn the poor whites against all the people of color. (Hey Poor Whites...you are poor because of the rich white people. Lynching Black people and kicking out Mexicans isn't going to put food on your table. Tell Mitch McConnell to share some of his estimated net worth of between $9.2 million and $36.5 million with you. A bunch of jobs in California and Texas picking grapes for $2 an hour is not going to help you. Calling out Mitch McConnell’s long opposition to increasing the minimum wage will directly put more money in your pockets and food on your table. You keep falling for the okedoke. Trump is the President we deserve. He is legitimately and completely America born and breed. So until we acknowledge the racism that is woven into America's very being, we will continue to let ignorance ruin us all. Let's spare ourselves the cost and spectacle of a Flynn/Russia congressional hearing which will just reveal that half of us were bumbling incompetents and half of us were selfish traitors. Let's make Hillary and Trump to work together like our Founding Fathers used to do until that disgusting, slaving, rapist, a-hole Thomas Jefferson changed the rule. I'm so glad I saw Hamilton and was reminded of some of the good rules that we have let some a-holes pervert for their own selfish benefit. Shoot, we gotta lot to do so let's agree on TWO supreme court appointments and which gives us back a bunch of time, energy, and resources to get to work on all the things on the list above. Seriously, let's walk across the aisle, work together, and really make america great!" But what do I know?

Asia Foundation and Estée Lauder Companies Launch Women's Technology Literacy Initiative in Indonesia - The Asia Foundation
The Asia Foundation
Jakarta, April 6, 2017 — Today, The Asia Foundation announced the launch of a new, six-month pilot initiative with The Estée Lauder Companies to promote women’s technology literacy and help build and encourage the computer and internet skills of vulnerable urban women. The pilot program, in partnership with the Women’s Resource Development Center (PPWS), will provide training to 200 low-income women. Based in Jakarta, Indonesia’s largest urban center, this initiative focuses on the most socioeconomically disadvantaged populations of society concentrated in underserved urban areas. For these disadvantaged women, access to basic technology literacy can open new doors socioeconomically and enhance their quality of life. “As internet connectivity becomes increasingly available to disadvantaged communities, closing the digital gender divide by empowering poor women to acquire basic technology literacy can have positive ripple effects throughout low-income communities. For the 200 participants and their families, this pilot initiative will provide a meaningful opportunity to embark on a more promising, prosperous, and dignified future,” said Christopher Wyrod, The Asia Foundation’s Deputy Country Representative in Indonesia. Computer software and application training will allow participants to gain skills that will improve their access to information and provide new employment and income opportunities. Digital learning tools (in Bahasa Indonesia) will not only empower them with professional skills but enable them to make deeper connections with other women, increase self-esteem and self-expression, and become leaders in their communities. Although Indonesia is emerging as a regional technology hub, inequality is growing fast. Women in urban areas are a particularly vulnerable demographic due to higher costs of living, heightened insecurity, and the prevalence of single-parent households. Confronted with rising income disparity and intolerance of difference and diversity, the Foundation promotes access to services that enhance job opportunities for the marginalized poor, particularly women. The Asia Foundation and The Estée Lauder Companies are committed to improving access to education and opportunities for women and girls. “As a Company founded by a woman and driven today by a workforce that is 85% women, we know that providing education to women not only creates the opportunity to affect change for individuals and families...

Estee Lauder unveils new multi-cultural campaign and two new products.

On Sunday’s 10th anniversary special, Kris Jenner and her five daughters sat down to reflect on the last decade of Keeping Up with the Kardashians — but one member of the famous family was noticeably absent.
Rob Kardashian, 30, did not partake in the 90-minute sit-down, which was taped in April — but his name was brought up at one point when sister Kendall Jenner pointed out that they “all grew up in twos.”
Host Ryan Seacrest then asked Kris, 61, how her son was doing.
“Rob’s great,” she said. “He’s working on a new clothing line, and I see him every day because he lives down the street.”
“We’re literally on a group chat every single day,” added Kendall, 21.
The conversation swiftly moved on to the family’s group chat (which Kylie, 20, promised is “lit”), and no further mentions of Rob were made.
While Rob’s absence may come as a surprise to some fans, it’s not all too unusual: The reclusive reality star, who has struggled with weight gain and depression in recent years, stopped filming the show for a significant period. (He did, however, appear on the two most recent seasons and starred on his own E! spinoff with his now ex-fiancée Blac Chyna, Rob & Chyna, which aired for one season last fall.)
He also didn’t participate in the family’s recent Hollywood Reporter cover story celebrating 10 years on TV and hasn’t done any press promoting the milestone.
These days, Rob has been lying particularly low due to recent drama with Chyna, 29. On July 5, Rob took to social media to share graphic and expletive-ridden content about his ex — including three naked photos — while accusing her of drug use, alcohol abuse and infidelity.
Chyna and her legal team accused Rob of violating California’s revenge porn laws, claiming in court documents obtained by PEOPLE that he allegedly hit her and threatened to kill himself multiple times. A judge later granted her a set of restraining orders against him.
“Chyna is pleased that Rob has agreed to peacefully coparent Dream with her, as she has been requesting all along,” Chyna’s attorney Lisa Bloom told PEOPLE. “Because Rob agreed to continue to stay away from Chyna and not contact her, Chyna has agreed to take the domestic abuse hearing scheduled for Monday, Sept. 18, off calendar. She will always have the right to go back into court if further incidents of domestic abuse occur.”
Bloom added that the agreement “does not resolve all disputes between Chyna and Rob.”

On Saturday, a source told PEOPLE that Rob is ready to focus his energy on Dream.
“Rob is okay,” said the source. “Ultimately, he mostly cared about hashing out a custody agreement for Dream. He loves his baby girl and she is his focus.”
“Rob and Chyna have other issues they need to figure out, but this is a good start,” the source added. “Rob knows it was a huge mistake to get involved with Chyna, but baby Dream is his world. She’s the most special gift.”
According to the source, Rob’s family is “being supportive.”
“There’s no more, ‘What did we tell you?’ attitude — they just want Rob to move on,” the source said. “They all love Dream. They want Rob and Chyna to get along because it benefits Dream.”
Season 14 of Keeping Up with the Kardashians premieres Oct. 1 at 9 p.m. ET on E!

Yesterday I had the chance to meet some extremely important women in beauty, at an Estee Lauder event which coincidently was named just that. The company is relaunching their ad campaigns featuring models Constance Jablonski, Liu Wen and Joan Smalls to reflect the philosphy of the namesake of the brand, Estee herself. Estee often said…
At a time when women were ‘informed’ of their ‘responsibility’ to rear children and take care of their families, Lauder was determined to create an everlasting legacy for the generations of professional women to come.
Every woman can be beautiful. So said the late Estée Lauder, whose belief has been translated into her namesake brand's new philosophy. Its latest faces

Dr. Jerisa ER knows all too well how heartbreaking it is to be told pregnancy may not be possible. In order to help women, she launched a web app, Secure Your Fertility. The app is a convenient tool for monitoring reproductive health. As one of the nation’s acclaimed doctors, board-certified in Emergency Medicine, Dr. Jerisa Berry a.k.a “Dr. Jerisa ER” is also a nationally recognized speaker, media consultant, and author. She is on staff at several emergency facilities in South Florida and is co-owner of a medical clinic, Vital Care Medical Center, Inc with her husband. Dr. Jerisa is founder of SecureYourFertility.com, where she helps single ladies and career-minded women take control of their fertility. Because experience and medicine both are the best teachers for women seeking to optimize and work through the various fertility options, Dr. Jerisa is a subject matter expert in ovarian preservation, assisted fertilization, and surrogacy, helping to decrease the pressures and stressors associated with the process.
When she is not saving lives in the ER, she shares her expertise in real-world health strategies as a sought-after media expert regarding acute, emergent and chronic health conditions. Her mission is simple: Make ER visits less stressful and more productive by increasing public awareness. As a relatable woman and ER doctor, women feel secure with her guidance to understand an optimal time to start a family and lessen the confusion of the fertility processes.
It’s shocking to some women to realize that when they are READY to get pregnant and to become a mom, their body may NOT be. Why is this...really? She explains in simplest manner. When a girl is born, she has the maximum amount of eggs within her ovary at birth, in the 1 to 2 millions. As she ages, it declines and even before she starts her first period, it has drastically declined to much less than half. You do not make NEW eggs. And each of these eggs will not mature to ovulate.
In early 2017, Dr. Jerisa consulted with a 30 year old HEALTHY woman who had an AMH blood level of 0.4, much less than hers was at age 38. This is REAL and AWARENESS is key to understanding what it means. Thankfully, because the woman was trying to get pregnant, she gained knowledge of her AMH after failing to conceive. BUT, what about the 30 year old who is not trying and thus unaware of her ovarian reserve? AMH blood tests give women an idea of their remaining egg reserve.
If your AMH blood level is normal or high, good for you. If it’s very high, this could be an indication for testing for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). Dr. Jerisa's mission is to increase awareness for those women who have low levels and won't know WITHOUT TESTING. Having been a patient, who also is a physician, Dr. Jerisa knows fully the value of NOT just treating numbers. She also adds FAITH to her walk. But there has never been a woman that had a LOW LEVEL who didn’t, even through her hurt and devastation, see this knowledge as a wake-up call. A call to change her lifestyle. A call to rid her body of toxins. A call to decrease stress. A call to change eating habits. A call to look into holistic medicine. KNOWING this created a REACTION that caused many women to seek ways to improve their numbers and the QUALITY of their REMAINING EGGS.
Dr. Jerisa graduated from Howard University and earned her medical degree from New York College of Osteopathic Medicine, completed her internship and dual-residency, for both Emergency Medicine and Family Medicine, at Midwestern University in Chicago, Illinois.Deanna Burrell is the author of the best-selling novel, Single Girl Summer.
