Good morning, Broadsheet readers! Fed vice chair Lael Brainard hints at slower interest rate hikes following promising inflation report, MacKenzie Scott reveals nearly $2 billion in donations, and Fortune's 40 Under 40 list spotlights women to watch.

- Rising stars. Fortune’s 40 Under 40 list highlights people to know in business, culture, and beyond. This year’s edition is no exception, featuring big names to watch in the years ahead.

In the venture and startup category, there’s Lux Capital partner Deena Shakir. A go-to investor in the women’s health space, Shakir has backed many female-founded companies covered in the Broadsheet, from Maven Clinic to Summer Health. Her work has taken on greater urgency in the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

From the world of finance and crypto, there’s Ksenia Yudina, the founder and CEO of UNest. Yudina left Russia at 18 and worked as a hotel housekeeper before founding the digital brokerage. She spent much of 2022 working to ensure the safety of her employees in Ukraine, Russia, and Belarus.

Susan Li, the new CFO of Meta, is another must-watch listee. The 36-year-old was an early Facebook employee, joining the company in 2008, and stepped into her new role in November. Already, she’s steering the tech giant through mass layoffs.

In the health and bioscience industry, Verge Genomics cofounder and CEO Alice Zhang is working to develop drugs that treat ALS, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s. ALS alone affects about 30,000 people in the U.S., with 5,000 new cases diagnosed each year.

Fortune's Under 40 list also highlights cultural movers and shakers like Rihanna, now a self-made billionaire thanks to her businesses Fenty Beauty and Savage X Fenty; Alex Cooper, the podcast host with ambitions to be bigger than Joe Rogan; and Paige Bueckers, the University of Connecticut basketball star changing what it means to be a college athlete.

This week is evidently about young stars as Fortune heads to San Diego, Calif., for its Most Powerful Women Next Gen Summit. We’ll bring you highlights from the conference and hear from speakers like Olympic gold medalist Allyson Felix alongside Athleta CEO Mary Beth Laughton, Archewell president Mandana Dayani, and Hello Sunshine CEO Sarah Harden. Stay tuned!
