Event Details

Let's Rethink Happiness together!

Join Stanford Women in Tech and Stanford Professional Women for an afternoon of wine, hors d'oeuvres, networking, and a great talk by Jennifer Aaker. 

In this talk, Dr. Aaker discusses what really makes us happy (vs. what we think makes us happy), draws on new research to suggests ways to reframe happiness, and discusses insights from behavioral psychological research to illuminate how we might cultivate happiness at work and in life.

Jennifer Aaker

Dr. Jennifer Aaker is a behavioral psychologist, author, and the General Atlantic Professor at Stanford Graduate School of Business. Her research focuses on the psychology of time, money and happiness — specifically how people choose to spend their time and money and how those choices drive lasting happiness. She is the recipient of the Distinguished Scientific Achievement Award from the Society for Consumer Psychology and the Stanford Distinguished Teaching Award. Noted for her early work on the dimensions of brand personality, Dr. Aaker's current research focuses on the differences between happiness and meaning, the power of story in decision making, and how to build global brands across cultures. At Stanford, she teaches The Innovation PlaybookPower of StoryDesigning for VR/AR: Scaling Empathy in an Immersive World, and Rethinking Purpose. More recently, she has begun to teach Humor: Serious Business. Unanimously voted the least funny person in her family, she is definitely not teaching this class out of spite.
