Spotlight on HuffPost's "Women in Tech" Series

Ceilings are cashing in Silicon Valley as women assume influential roles on the tech side of the Social Media revolution. Thanks to Huffington Post’s “Women in Tech” series, sponsored by Dell and Intel, over the next few weeks we will have the opportunity to learn about the inspirational and skilled women leading and influencing some of the most innovative companies in the technology sector today.

Arianna Huffington, Editor-in-Chief of The Huffington Post, notes that the "Women in Tech" series “is built on the knowledge that there's more progress to be made. Marissa Mayer [Google's VP of Location and Local Services] estimates women still only account for 15 to 17 percent of engineers in Silicon Valley.”

HuffPost’s ongoing series seemingly inspired by the remarks of Sheryl Sandberg, Chief Operating Officer of Facebook and one of the ‘50 Most Powerful Women’ in business, at a TED talk called “Why we have too few women leaders”, kicked off on July 6th. Among the exclusive interviews featured this past week were Gilt Groupe Chairman Susan Lyne, whose success comes in large part due to recreating the excitement of a sample sale online; Twitter’s Erica Anderson; and Jennifer Hyman, Co-founder and CEO of Rent the Runway, the online mail-order service that rents designer dresses and accessories for a fraction of their original price. Stay tuned-in to HuffPost’s tech section in the coming weeks for more Q&As, videos and slide shows about leaders that are impacting the technologies that are a part of our daily lives.
