#84: Money and love: how to make important life decisions with Abby Davisson

Abby Davisson is a social innovation leader and career development expert. Most recently, she spent nine years at global retailer Gap Inc., where she served as president of the Gap Foundation and a senior leader on the ESG (Environmental, Social & Governance) team. 

Abby also co-founded the company’s employee resource group for working parents, which has been featured as a best practice for how employers can support dual-career couples. Abby's expertise in career development comes from serving as an alumni career coach at Stanford’s Graduate School of Business and from forging her own non-traditional career path (across the public, private, and non-profit sectors). 

Abby holds a BA from Yale University and an MBA and MA in Education from Stanford University. She lives with her husband and their two sons in San Francisco.

We cover the following in our conversation:

  • Money and love: how relationships impact our money decisions
  • How to communicate and negotiate effectively
  • The 5C decision making framework and how this applies to 3 key life scenarios:
  • a) choosing a mate or choosing whether to marry, b) combining family and career and c) deciding whether to break up or indeed to divorce your partner
  • How gender norms play into these decisions
  • And how to create that win-win situation for yourself and for your loved one.
