America's CEOs - Where are the women?




Following her dismissal as Yahoo’s chief executive officer last week, Carol Bartz—who was unceremoniously fired over the phone—didn’t go quietly. Barely a day after she was sent packing, Bartz gave an interview to Fortune, calling the company directors “doofuses.” (She may have to pay for those remarks; her contract had a non-disparagement clause.) Even if Bartz wasn’t well-liked, some lamented her departure: now that she’s gone, there are no female CEOs left at major Silicon Valley firms.
Of course, it isn’t just the tech sector that suffers a dearth of women. Among Fortune 500 companies, women now hold just 2.8 per cent of CEO roles, according to Catalyst, a non-profit think tank. Bartz’s firing sparked debate over whether her treatment was sexist, with industry observers describing her as overly blunt and aggressive. Yahoo’s moribund shares rallied at her departure.

  1. You're satire is 100% spot on! Unfortunately, America's elites in government, media, and business have gone completely insane. This was one of the reasons why Rome fell. I wonder if there was a RamZpaul doing satire during the fall of Rome? I bet there was.

    Adios,

  2. You should do an update on your Black Atlas Tulsa video. You could visit the spot where the niggers just executed the White girl from Oral Roberts University and her White boyfriend.
