Inspired by Patty Murray, formerly of Intel, Bonnie Crater, CEO of Full Circle CRM, wrote this article about taking a play from the NFL. Combine these thoughts with those of Patty Murray about gender equality at the executive level, especially the C level, we have some work to do.
Some thoughts from Patty that Bonnie & Susan pondered:
Ambition – and how it’s expressed – often looks very different in women.
Isolation affects women’s advancement more than we think.
Intentional, tailored development and flexibility is critical.
Women don’t want to be singled out as technical females.
How do these resonate with you? Do you agree, disagree? What is your company doing to address the imbalance in this area? Is it enough?
Phil Fernandez of Marketo doesn't think it is. He is committed to adding two more women to his executive level, bringing it to 4 and 4. He's also looking to increase the number of women on Marketo's board by 3.
