In an interview with BoomTown's Kara Swisher, Facebook's new second-in-command Sheryl Sandberg says "Silicon Valley is a very good place for women."
For a couple reasons. It's a meritocracy. People really care about ideas here. None of the old school where'd-you-come-from stuff applies in Silicon Valley and I think that helps women.
Where Sandberg comes from:
- The Clinton White House
- Harvard College
- Harvard Business School
She was also Larry Page's connection to Bono. But I'm sure that doesn't matter, either.
