Last week, during Facebook’s earnings call, a signal of a different sort was sent out by Sheryl Sandberg, a well-known advocate for women in Tech.
While fielding questions about Facebook’s earnings, Sheryl made a point to congratulate Marissa Mayer, ex Googler and freshly minted CEO of Yahoo!, on her new venture.
In a tech world that some have argued is increasingly defined by “walled gardens,” it powerfully signaled that advancing women in tech is an issue that unites us all.
And you gotta love that an Ex Googler and current Yahoo! took to Twitter to thank the Faceobok COO.
Thanks for the shout out,
@sherylsandberg – very excited to be here at @yahoo!

Could women leading in tech result in harmony amongst the social platforms?
One can only hope. 🙂
