The CEO of Yahoo , Marissa Mayer made news a week ago by pulling her employee’s back from working at home….
There was an outcry….
She was demonized…..
Then a few days ago it was reported that Best Buy followed Marissa Mayer’s order and told their employee’s no more working from home…
What was NOT reported in the two second media window is that Mayer HERSLF worked from home where she took care of her two kids and that Mayer has HER OWN nursey set up right outside her office….
If you’re rich….The rules get bent for ya….
Over the last several days the media has kept Mayer name alive under the premise that she is liberating women by making decision’s that men would make .
Is she gonna provide free childcare service, like she has, for all her employee’s who now have to come to work with young children?
Time Magazine is out with a piece on another woman who has made it to the top…
Props to her and Mayer….
But I hope these women don’t turnaround act like their male predecessors and forget about those NOT so rich….
In person, Sandberg does not give the impression that she’s bossy. She gives the impression that she was born 43, that she was delivered preloaded with the capacity and will to order people around but also the capacity and will to ensure that they thrive. Now that she is really 43, she has so perfected these skills that merely helping run a $66 billion tech company is not quite enough of a challenge. So Sandberg has taken on a new mission: to change the balance of power. That quest and her plan of attack have brought out the broadsides.
It would be un-Sandbergian to write a book and just leave it at that. Her campaign comes with LeanIn.org, a nonprofit foundation with corporate partnerships, online seminars and guidelines for establishing support groups. It’s probably not an overstatement to say Sandberg is embarking on the most ambitious mission to reboot feminism and reframe discussions of gender since the launch of Ms. magazine in 1971.
The thing is, she’s in a pretty good position to pull it off. She’s the co-pilot of the biggest network of humans the world has ever seen: Facebook’s roughly 1 billion members, most of whom are female, at least in the U.S. She’s worth hundreds of millions of dollars. And she has an undeniable record of knowing how to get things done. Her résumé, with its by-the-book stints at Harvard Business School, McKinsey and the Treasury Department, does not reek of revolutionary, but in the lineage of key feminist figures, she may well turn out to be pivotal. “In a sense it’s almost like Betty Friedan 50 years ago,” says author and historian Stephanie Coontz. “She’s talking to a particular audience, but they really need this message.”
