    In 1999, Marissa Mayer, then a recent Stanford University graduate, joined a little-known startup with fewer than 20 employees that she calculated as having a two percent chance of success: Google.

    Now, as a senior executive with the search giant, Mayer is one of the most powerful women in Silicon Valley. Her work at Google influences how hundreds of millions of people access information on the web and she plays a key role in shaping Google’s most important products, from the look and feel of its homepage to popular features like Google News and Gmail, as well as

    Cisco Tech Chief Outlines Women’s Advantages in Tech

    By Bianca Bosker (Technology Editor, The Huffington Post)

    Cisco Systems’ chief technology officer Padmasree Warrior is one of the most powerful women in Silicon Valley.

    She is responsible for around two-thirds of Cisco’s revenues, which totaled $43 billion in the most recent fiscal year and, with her colleague Pankaj Patel, oversees more than 22,000 engineers.

    But Warrior nearly bypassed a career in business altogether — turned off from the tech industry by the dearth of women in the field, she instead aspired to be part of academia.

    By Robert Jordan (Author, “How They Did It: Billion Dollar Insights from the Heart of America”)

    “It’s really important to get the word out to a woman that she has the resources and capabilities that almost genetically make her superior to be a CEO.” That’s what Bonnie Baskin, founder of ViroMed and AppTec Labs, told me when we recently sat down to talk about her inspiring story.

    Women 2.0: What is your reaction to the latest news about women entrepreneurs and investors?

    Stephanie Hanbury-Brown: Women get described as consumers and managing 80 percent of the household wallet. We need to turn that around and make it about investing, not spending. After all, who are we making rich in the process?

    Huffington Post: GenJuice CEO on What Makes Women Better Entrepreneurs Than Men

    By Bianca Bosker (Technology Editor, The Huffington Post)

    GenJuice CEO Arielle Patrice Scott decided at an early age that she wanted to be the next Mark Zuckerberg. Like Facebook CEO Zuckerberg, Scott co-founded her first company, InternshipIn, while in college. Unlike Zuckerberg’s startup, however, Scott’s venture didn’t grow into a multibillion-dollar behemoth — by her own admission, it failed — and unlike the famous Harvard dropout, Scott graduated from the University of California, Berkeley, last year. The other key difference: while Zuckerberg, like so many Web startup CEOs, is a white man, Scott is an African-American woman, part of a still-underrepresented group in the tech industry.
