There were a lot of articles recently about the hiring of Marissa Mayer as head CEO of Yahoo. Why is that news? It is true there are still not many as many women CEOs as men, although it is changing. What got the media worked up about this was that she announced on twitter within moments after she was hired (it was quick) that she is 7 months pregnant. Question: would Yahoo have hired her had they known? Is that why she waited? Who knows? But it made me think of the above cartoon. Enjoy!
****Correction! I just found out Yahoo knew she was pregnant. Sorry.****
According to Forbes, the Yahoo board knew during the interview process, she told them she is pregnant (even though she didn’t have to).
Jim and Ioana–Thank you for alerting me. My apologies!
It sounds like Yahoo knew before they hired her.
