The Most Influential Women in Web 2.0 (Fast Company)


This appears to be Women’s Leadership Week here on Weekly Leader.   Saabira Chaudhuri wrote an article for the November 2008 issue of Fast Company profiling The Most Influential Women in Web 2.0.

We’ve heard the stats before — only a quarter of those involved in computer and mathematical occupations are women. And yet, in the ever-evolving world of Web 2.0, women have often been pioneers, redefining the way we interact online. To give credit where it’s due, we tracked down the most influential of these. Our list wasn’t chosen by star power, nor by career altitude. Rather, we feature the biggest innovators.

You’ll recognize quite a few of these leaders but I’m sure that you’ll also find a few new ones to watch.
