In the modern age of knowledge workers, the issue of where and how we work has become complicated. Here's why: remote work.
If I were Marissa Mayer, I'd say/write the following to anyone who is in any way curious about Yahoo and its future. It's what I refer to as "assertive humility."
Believing in leadership is like believing in religion: if you expect perfection from those mortals who practice it, you will be mightily disappointed.
There is no way to lean in at work and lean in at home. And what Sandberg and Mayer have that most other working mothers don't is millions of dollars to spend on the highest quality of daycare.
When half the world's population have no role models of their own gender in important industries, it is more difficult to develop a culture of success.
After a few days of deliberation, Yahoo!'s Board rejected Marissa Mayer's strategy to spin-off its 15 percent stake in Alibaba estimated to be worth $31 billion into a new company called Aabaco.
In what ways is Mayer being held to a higher standard because she's a woman? Because she's a pregnant woman, a regrettable anomaly in the Fortune 500? Perhaps because she's a relatively young woman -- at 40, she's more than a decade younger than the median age of CEOs in the Fortune 1000. Or is it her femininity?
A spokesperson for Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer announced today that Mayer is overwhelmed by the outpouring of heartfelt insults in response to her announcement that she is pregnant and plans to take a limited maternity leave. S
Here's the question that must be asked: Why are we questioning Marissa Mayer's personal decision about how to balance her work and family lives when too few people have this option at all? The last time a male CEO was asked questions about how he would balance having a new baby and with work was never.
Her personal decision doesn't mean that millions of other women will be forced to follow in her footsteps. Instead, let's hope that her example pushes other companies to work out more and various solutions for expectant moms and dads.
And in long form -- Yahoo had another series launch as well. Yahoo announced The Pursuit, an edgier, 21st century take on Friends in the era of social media.
We know why otherwise capable women abandon technology careers or encounter disproportionate hurdles to advancement in a coding-centric workplace. We recognize all of these symptoms. Now we must decide how to fix this broken code.
It's do or die -- a crisis could be the perfect moment to surpass expectations and make a name for yourself.
Gender bias is real and it is worse in engineering. Even engineering students rate average female professors more harshly than an average male professor.
