Last week CBS launched its series The American Spirit about community leaders organizing programs to solve social problems. Anchor Katie Couric filed three of those reports: on a public health activist, a superintendent of schools and a billionaire education activist.
Couric rubbed shoulders with the wealthy again, or at least the formerly wealthy, profiling Janet Hanson of 85broads.com. Hanson is a one-time Wall Street millionaire who quit her job at Goldman Sachs and set up an online networking and mentoring support group for professional women. It organizes 1,600 women worldwide to combat gender discrimination in job placement and workplace promotion. Hanson has spent "her entire net worth, almost $7m, to create and maintain" the network. Couric offered no clue as to what all that money was spent on.
