Talk of the Day: N'Gina Kavookjian
N’Gina Kavookjian is an artist of all the senses. In this CreativeMornings/Sacramento talk, she shares her lessons and hardships in starting three restaurants and also provides a call to action for equality in the workplace.
We live in a society that deems the feminine as a negative—don’t be a pussy, stop being a bitch, to be female is to be weak. I was told yesterday that I had balls because of the way that I run our company—a male attribute assigned to my strengths and successfully coding three businesses. Men in business, please understand that this practice is bullshit; it’s hurtful, demeaning, and it’s not me being a whiny bitch by saying it.
