Yahoo Inc.'s new CEO Marissa Mayer is about to add another valuable skill to her leadership toolkit: motherhood.
Social networking sites are vast data mines for large corporations like Wal-Mart, who will sift through your posts looking to target you for products based on your genome, or perhaps one day for credit card companies, insurance salesmen, etc. It's already happening.
We should celebrate Mayer's appointment to CEO as a affirmation of what women CAN do. Use it to counter the media's constant messaging exhorting young women: you can't do it!
With last week's announcement of new Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer, the balance tips in executive women's favor as another power female takes the reins in Silicon Valley.
Yahoo gives us hope that organizations are finally going to break down the glass ceiling for women and select the person best equipped to get the job done.
This is a proud time for all of Silicon Valley. Technology may be traditionally perceived as a male-dominated industry, but it won't always be that way. Every day we see more and more powerful women leaders boasting outstanding achievements.
Mayer's decisions are a reminder of the importance of choice. It's time we open up the debate about maternity leave and work towards ensuring all women have more choices about when and how they return to work after having a baby.
At the end of the day, it's up to Marissa Mayer and the board of Yahoo to decide if she can do the job -- not the media and Wall Street nay-sayers.
Marissa Mayer, welcome to the 2012 "Having It All Olympics!"
Don't believe the well-intentioned enthusiasts when they say you can have it all. You simply cannot. We take our life in our hands, make our choices and have what we have -- just not all.
When women make it to the top, as Rometty and Mayer have, how much should we expect of them? How much do they owe us?
You have a terrific bully pulpit as a new female CEO. The message you're sending now is terrifying.
Print media, including magazines, that complain of reduced revenues, rising costs, shrinking circulation and see-sawing advertising, have felt the pinch, but thanks to innovative approaches, countless publishers are recouping their losses and widening their reach.
Many are commenting that Mayer's pregnancy is irrelevant. That the troubled company is lucky to have won Mayer over -- and I agree.
While frequent data breaches may have desensitized some consumers to identity theft, it's still important to pay attention to early warning signs your info is being used illegally, no matter how creative, silly or transparent a scam may seem.
Technology is an overwhelmingly male industry. But in Silicon Valley there are the first signs of change in the air as Yahoo! appointed Marissa Mayer as its new CEO -- a move that has been applauded across the industry and is tipped to revive the fortunes of one of the internet's most recognizable brands.
