Typical list from Inc. Magazine of women who succeed in a mostly male-dominated tech industry.
From household names like Sheryl Sandberg and Marissa Mayer to new faces like the founders of Project Include, a nonprofit aimed at diversifying tech companies, these women are taking charge and proving Silicon Valley isn’t just a boy’s club.
It isn’t just a boy’s club, it’s mostly a boy’s club. Maybe one day I’ll share some email I’ve received from their members.
Notable newcomer; Apple’s own Bozoma Saint John.
Saint John stole the show at this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference -; she got the audience to rap along to the Sugarhill Gang’s “Rapper’s Delight” and was dubbed “the coolest person to ever go onstage at an Apple event” by BuzzFeed. Saint John ended up at Apple by way of the company’s acquisition of Beats Music, and before that she built Pepsi’s music and entertainment marketing group. Her team at Apple revamped Apple Music with features, like lyrics, that excited WWDC’s entire crowd.
Somebody needed to fix the Apple Music mess. Good to see that Apple includes women on stage.
