National Women's Law Center's Annual Dinner

Thursday, November 19, 2009 6:00 PM

BSF is a proud leading sponsor of the National Women’s Law Center’s annual dinner. 

This year, Judy Woodruff (The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer) will moderate a discussion with two amazing women at the center of efforts to address the financial crisis: Sheila Bair, FDIC Chairman, and Brooksley Born (the "Credit Crisis Cassandra") a former partner at Arnold and Porter and former Chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission in the mid 90s, where she accurately predicted that exotic investments known as over-the-counter derivatives could play a crucial role in a crisis much like the current one.

You can read more about the Credit Crisis Cassandra by following the below links:
