Happy Friday, Broadsheet readers! Chelsea Clinton speaks to Fortune’s Nina Easton about women in the workforce, Sheryl Sandberg partners with the NBA and Ukraine is counting on a Chicago-born woman in its war against Russia.
• First look. Fortune‘s Nina Easton spoke with Chelsea Clinton about the Clinton Foundation’s debut report from its No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project. “Greater participation in the workforce by women is not only the right thing to do, but the smart thing to do,” Clinton said. The report is scheduled to be released on Monday, but Fortune got a sneak peek.
ALSO IN THE HEADLINES
• Turning up the heat. In Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg’s latest op-ed for the New York Times, written with Wharton professor Adam Grant, she urges men to get in on the fight for equality, mentioning a number of benefits, including “choreplay” — men who do more housework have more sex with their wives, research finds. Already on board: Virgin Atlantic CEO Richard Branson, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, Cisco CEO John Chambers and the whole NBA.
• Wynning. Elaine Wynn is nominating herself for reelection to the board of Wynn Resorts, where her ex-husband, Steve Wynn, wants her out. The casino company serves men and women, so “it is vital that the views of 50% of the population be represented on the board,” she said in a statement released late Thursday. A co-founder and board member for the past 13 years, she’s the company’s sole female director. If she gets the boot as her ex-husband intends, it’ll be 100% men at the board table.
• All Hillary, all the time. Here is the latest on HRC. (1) Clinton tweeted on Wednesday night, “I want the public to see my email.” Read a quick refresher on the whole email story here. (2) Some Democrats are worried about her candidacy. (3) Now that she responded, she and her advisers have decided to let this storm pass, hoping that the controversy will have died down by the time she announces her candidacy, Bloomberg reports.
• Delhi stop. India’s Daughter, a documentary about the 2012 rape and murder of a young woman in Delhi, may not be “uploaded, transmitted [or] published,” according to an Indian court ruling, which cited concerns that the film could lead to “law and order problems.”
• “Something has to give.” Stephanie Linnartz, Marriott’s consumer chief, talks to Fortune‘s Leigh Gallagher about hospitality, mentorship and time management.
• Not that innocent? Sandra Arroyo Salgado, a judge and the widow of Argentine federal prosecutor Alberto Nisman, says that her husband’s death was not from a suicide or an accident — it was a murder. Nisman was found dead in his bathroom after accusing Argentine President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner of protecting Iranian officials responsible for a 1994 bombing of a Buenos Aires Jewish center. Although the criminal complaint against Mrs. Kirchner was dismissed, that dismissal is now being appealed.
• One woman showdown. Natalie Jaresko, Ukraine’s Chicago-born minister of finance, is as important to the country’s war with Russia as is its military, reports Bloomberg.
• Diversity matters. Was Toyota’s failure to respond quickly to a 2009 safety problem a reflection of the thinking of its mostly Japanese male engineers? That may be the reason behind a spate of recent changes at the company’s top levels, including promotions for American Julie Hamp and African American Christopher Reynolds.
• A career changing perennial. TV news anchor turned Marriott executive Kathleen Matthews is looking to try yet another career: Congresswoman. She plans to run for a House seat, representing Maryland. We shouldn’t be too surprised. Last year, Matthews shared this advice with Fortune: “You don’t want to be a plant with a root system that has outgrown your pot. To flower and bloom, you need to keep re-potting.”
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
• #Angels in the investment field. Six current and former Twitter executives, all women, have formed #Angels, an investment group looking for promising startups.
• Not adding up. Girls still lag behind boys in math, according to a new study from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. But the problem may be more about confidence than actual skills: While 48% of girls said they were “just not good at math,” only 37% of boys said the same. “It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy,” explains Catherine Hill, vice president of research at the American Association of University Women.
• Make your Market. Bloomberg.com will air a special edition of “Market Makers” today from 10am — 1 pm. Bloomberg TV anchor and managing editor Stephanie Ruhle will be interviewing influential women like Neiman Marcus CEO Karen Katz, White House Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett and Gwyneth Paltrow. Watch the livestream here.
