We've reached the end of the week and, thanks in part to the efforts of Mindr speaker, Nobel laureate and antinuclear activist Beatrice Fihn, the world is still predominantly in tact. Win! Here are our five fave links to send you into the weekend.

  1. New Federal Trade Commissioner Rebecca Slaughter is bringing her baby to work with her until she is ready to transition to daycare. "I am tired," she said (PS we are too). "I don't feel superhuman. I feel like a mom who has a career... and I'm trying to navigate the two."
  2. Following the recent incident of racial profiling in a Philadelphia store, Starbucks shut down for four hours all around the nation to deliver unconscious bias training to its employees (apparently narrated by the rapper Common).
  3. Serena Williams is back in the game 8 months after the birth of baby Olympia, backing up epic mic-drop moments with some real talk about postpartum depression.
  4. This Wednesday marked Moms' Equal Pay Day, because it takes roughly five months — or 150 days — into the year for the average working mother to earn what a father had made in 2017. 
  5. NPR research finds that dads like their sons better and moms prefer their daughters.

That's a wrap on the week, Mindr fam. Miss us IRL? Come hang out at our upcoming event with the United Nations World Food Programme, Celebrity Chef Pasquale Cozzolino and some other superstar guests, when we talk about the fight to end hunger and how each of us can be the change.
