The New Valley Girls
Just a short note to close a chaotic week. If you want to get away from the terrible news out of Wall Street, check out my Fortune story, “The New Valley Girls,” about the next generation of powerful women in Silicon Valley. It features Sheryl Sandberg at Facebook, the top women at Google and eBay , and lots more. I can’t tell you how inspired I was by these women–so different from the old guard of corporate women. From overseeing Fortune’s Most Powerful Women list for the past 11 years, women leaders traditionally have had househusbands to help raise the kids while they climbed their career ladders.
Also: The fortune.com folks did “The New Valley Girls’ Network,” a cool interactive feature, showing how these new leaders of Silicon Valley are interconnected. They actually help each other manage their careers, their lives and even their businesses. Take a look, The network shows “coopetition” at its best. Enjoy!
