What Marissa Mayer Means for Silicon Valley Women -

But by all accounts, Yahoo’s board of directors did not even blink when Ms. Mayer told them she was pregnant. That is a hopeful sign that even though the Valley’s engineering culture is not particularly welcoming to women, businesses here could be starting to solve the riddle of how to recruit more women into the top echelons of business.


Perhaps the board considered Mayer the best person for the job. I fear all the press about Mayer as the new poster-child for women will distract from her being the person who can likely save Yahoo.
