1. Our first event of 2018 is done and dusted! Massive thanks to everyone who came through on our #ArtDate. Highly recommend stopping by LaToya Ruby Frazier's show: it's free to the public and is a massively moving body of work on the implications of racism on healthcare, the environment, and economy. We couldn't have asked for a better way to start a year of CLASS OF 2018 events. See all the excitement on Insta here. (Feel free to regram + tag us @thewwclub!)

2. How is it already February?! And how's your Q1 going so far? Stay on track by enrolling in #THEWWCLUBCO18 for career content, online seminars, required reading lists and more to help you create a thorough + practical game plan. Or you can buy each worksheet individually for pages of creative exercises and advice, if you want to test the waters first.

3. Cecile Richards has stepped down as the President of Planned Parenthood. We've learned a lot from this fearless advocate for women's health—it only seems fitting to study up on her work routine while at PP. Check out her words of life and career wisdom on The Cut's "How I Get It Done".

4. You can do all the sheet masks and yin yoga classes you want, but the reality is: sometimes stress is self-inflicted. Here's how to get your perfectionism and soaring expectations under control.

5. Is it possible to pay off debt and invest in your future? The short answer: yes. In fact, according to Sallie Krawcheck, the CEO ofEllevest (an investment platform that caters to women), due to the gender wage gap, it's more important for women to start investing earlier on in life as a way of "catching up". Find out how.

6. Bookmark for next week: My friend and entrepreneurial geniusSharmadean Reid muses on how to best avoid those Sunday night blues. BTW, UK folks keep an eye out for the next issue of Courier(you can read clips from my bi-monthly column here), because Sharmadean is looking like an absolute boss on the cover!

7. Queen of the universe Erykah Badu talks staying sonically relevant, the importance of forming your own political options despite the hype, and how today's generation consumes music in a whole new way.

HAPPENINGS

NEW YORK

Cuban artist and activist Tania Bruguera stimulates all of your senses with her performance piece, Untitled (Havana, 2000), which closely examines the state of power in Havana. See it live at the MoMA until March 11.

LONDON

Can't think of a better pre-Valentine's Day date than an afternoon spent at the Orchids Festival in Kew Gardens. Opening on Feb 10, this year’s botanical celebration is inspired by the vibrant plant life of Thailand.

LOS ANGELES

Your favorite early-2000s duo is officially back, sharing the stage for a 3-month U.S. tour. Catch Ja Rule and Ashanti at Club Nokia on Feb 7 for a wave of beautiful nostalgia.
