This may seem as fate, but a couple of months ago, we surveyed the market and chose Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg as our logo. In a short few months, I was saddened to learn that she had left us, forever.

Aside from political views, what does RBG really stand for? I would like to take some time to reflect on her life and the values she stood for.

1. Equality

RBG had always stood for gender equality. She fought for equal rights for women to get the respect and status in society that they deserve. She fought for women to be treated equally as men, and be only judged on their abilities, vs. their gender. In her famous quote, she declared that "When I'm sometimes asked 'When will there be enough (women on the Supreme Court)?' and my answer is: 'When there are nine.' People are shocked. But there'd been nine men, and nobody's ever raised a question about that."

In addition, she also fought for equal rights for LGBTQ rights. As a matter of fact, she played a key role in legalizing gay marriage in 2015, and was the first Supreme Court member to perform same sex marriage ceremonies.

2. Having a voice

RBG was known for her dissent opinions. She might have been over ruled by the majority, but she was never shy to express her opinion, hoping that her voice will eventually make a difference for the future. As she pointed out, "Dissents speak to a future age... the greatest dissents do become court opinions"

3. Kindness

Even though She was formidable and a warrior in all these movements, she still counseled kindness, as opposed to harshness and anger. She said, when a thoughtless or unkind word is spoken, best tune out. Reaching in anger or annoyance will not advance one's ability to persuade". In another famous quote, she said, "fight for the things that you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you." She was the exemplar personification of balancing the fight and the kindness.

4. Perseverance

When RBG was in law school, her husband suffered from cancer. She managed to take care of him and their new born child, while excelling in law school, which is famous for being difficult. She even made Harvard Law Review, which is extremely selective and only a small percentage of the law students earn this honor. She did all this operating on a two hour sleep. At the age of 77, her beloved husband died, yet she carried on, still worked as hard as ever as a Supreme Court Judge. RBG suffered three different kind of cancer, but she never missed a day of court. She had a personal trainer even when she was already in her 80s and routinely exercised to keep herself strong and healthy.

5. Balance

RBG was a good wife, a good mother, a happy grandmother, and at the same the one of the most accomplished Supreme Court judges. She was able to maintain a healthy balance of her personal life and professional life. Her husband was her biggest advocate and helped with a lot of the house duties while supporting his wife in her carrier ambitions.

February 28, 2023

Before we know it, AI Generated Content (“AIGC”) has become the hottest topic in 2023. With this in mind and deriving from our understanding of AI, legal tech and self-driving cars, what is ChatGPT good and bad at?

The Five Fallacies Regarding the Need for a Highly Strategic Procurement Team

February 4, 2023

When we talk to our potential customers in the field, especially the relatively new startups who are going through hypergrowth, we notice that there is a lot of misunderstanding and confusion about needing a procurement team at all. We have seen hyper-growth companies with a few thousand employees, some of which may even produce and sell hardware, who don’t have a procurement function at all. This is mind-boggling and very dangerous. Here are the common fallacies about whether and why a company needs procurement and our responses to them.

Procurement Metrics: What is Spend Under Management and Why Does It Matter

January 17, 2023

In the past we have written extensively about why metrics matter for procurement leaders and why having a system to keep track of them is of essential importance. Today, I’d like to discuss one metric that procurement managers often overlook. Even in cases when they do realize the importance of this metric, it’s one of the metrics that’s more opaque and harder to keep track of. However, this metric is extremely important to keep track of. Keeping this metric under control and strict scrutiny will go a long way to not only cut cost, but increase bottom line. Here is why and how.

CPOs: The Five Steps To Win Your Seat at the Table

December 6, 2022

We have written extensively about why there should be a “Chief Procurement Officer” position and why such leaders should have a seat at the C-suite table, rather than reporting to the CFO or an engineering officer. But how? Like most things in this life, it won’t get handed on a silver platter. I have many fellow procurement leaders who are struggling to receive acknowledgment and achieve a voice. Here are some suggestions.
