Clare Hart who is an Executive Vice President for Dow Jones & Company, and president, of the Dow Jones Enterprise Media Group which i am now part of was recently named one of Women 3.0 Magazine's "Top 100 Women in Corporate America" .
According to the press release, the list recognizes inspiring women visionaries for the results of their hard work and dedication and includes those executives who have achieved powerful positions based upon their extensive knowledge and professional style. I have known Clare for many years (she was Factiva's CEO) and she certainly is someone that meets that criteria. Congrats!
Over the years as a Factiva employee i was always very proud to work for a company that had a female CEO that was also an industry leader. We were also lucky enough to have female COO. Female leadership and advancement in the corporate world is unfortunately not as frequent as it should be so for inspiration one of the RSS feeds i subscribe to is News On Women which provides almost daily updates on achievements of women in business, science, technology, education and the arts.
Note: the magazine cover is Marissa Mayer from Google not Clare Hart. Also, I couldn't locate the full list of the top 100, but if i do i will link to it on this post.
