Gloria's Pick*
I’m an advisor to the super cool app, Buy Up Index, so no surprise this caught my eye this week. Women buy over 80 percent of goods and services, after all. Buy Up Index has built a ratings system and scores companies on their female-friendliness, including the percent of women in leadership. This lets us easily mass the immense power of our purses to buy from companies that have policies and practices that support gender equality. Here’s how you can help, besides downloading and using the app today. Tell Buy Up how much this matters in your purchasing decisions by answering just 7 short questions here.  Results will be posted on Buy Up Index and might make the world a more equal place.  Thanks.
