    Tammy Smith, Brigadier General of the U.S. Army Reserve

Tammy Smith, a Brigadier General in the U.S. Army Reserve and the first openly gay U.S. general, speaks on leadership within high-stakes environments. Gen. Smith, who spent a year of her 26-year career in Afghanistan during the war, talks about leading within chaotic environments and as a woman within a historically male-dominated organization. In her talk, Gen. Smith addresses navigating gender and role. And as an openly gay leader in the military—where "don't ask, don't tell" was the policy until 2011—she shares her experience of combining leadership with an open, authentic expression of self. The event was co-sponsored by Veterans at Haas, Q@Haas, and Women in Leadership (WIL). This talk was part of the Dean's Speaker Series. (September 22, 2014)

    High-Frequency Trading

High-frequency trading drew national attention earlier this year from author Michael Lewis' latest book, Flash Boys. When data identifying the investor or trader involved in each algorithmic trading transaction finally started to become available in 2005, Finance Professor Terrence Hendershott began studying the effect of high frequency trading on the market and price efficiency. Hendershott believes HFT is the application of technology to many traditional short-term speculative strategies. In this video, Prof. Hendershott weighs in on whether high-frequency trading is good, bad, or simply inevitable.
