Cuff: Technology That’s Finally Wearable

Deepa Sood Cuff wearable technology jewelry Elle Elle.com interview google glass diane von furstenberg security notifications designer

While it can be said without a trace of doubt that Google Glass and Samsung Galaxy Gear are changing the future of how individuals can adopt technology into their daily wardrobe, it’s still unclear how willingly people will sport their gadgets knowing they’re due for a handful of quizzical looks. Even the celebrated designer Diane von Furstenberg, who incorporated the futuristic Google Glass devices into her Spring 2013 collection showcase, could do little to make Google Glass truly trendy.

Learning from the flaws of such well-known devices, designer Deepa Sood created a line of jewelry called Cuff, which apart from looking beautiful, boasts functionalities for notifications, security and fitness tracking. Joining hands with her software developer husband, Sood created designs that are fashionable yet ahead of the curve.

#BanBossy: Sheryl Sandberg and Anna Maria Chávez Draw The Line Between Boss And Bossy

Posted by | Digital Media, Women in Business

Wall Street Journal Sheryl Sandberg #BanBossy banbossy.com women leaders girl scouts Anna Maria Chávez Condoleezza Rice, Beyoncé, Jennifer Garner and Diane Von Furstenberg gender stereotypes biases encourage girls to lead

Little boys are encouraged to lead while young girls are expected to be supportive. Trying to dismiss this simple stereotype is BanBossy.com, a campaign by the Founder of LeanIn Organization and Facebook’s COO Sheryl Sandberg and Girl Scouts USA’s CEO Anna Maria Chávez. In an attempt to motivate girls to also assume leadership roles without being qualified as ‘bossy’, the campaign aims to change people’s thinking from girls can lead to girls should lead.

“Words like bossy send a message: don’t raise your hand or speak up. By middle school, girls are less interested in leading than boys—a trend that continues into adulthood. Together we can encourage girls to lead,” says the Ban Bossy website.

Leila Janah CEO Samasource nonprofit micro jobs impact sourcing fortune most powerful female entrepreneurs in 2013 ebay google.org microsoft foundation

Leila Janah is an idealist. At the young age of 17, Janah was volunteering in Ghana, teaching English to locals in an effort to equip them with the tools to build better lives. She was surprised to learn that most people there already spoke English fairly well but lacked job opportunities, a lesson that would forever change her future and give her the tools she needed to launch Samasource.

The Harvard graduate founded the nonprofit Samasource in 2008 to provide computer and internet-based micro-work to the impoverished, training unskilled but highly motivated people for jobs being outsourced from multinational corporations. Janah disassembles large projects outsourced by companies like eBay, identifying and assigning smaller micro-jobs that require a basic understanding of computers and the internet; a simple strategy with powerful implications for millions in developing countries.
