Congratulations to Clare Hart for being named One of Women 3.0 Magazine's "Top 100 Women in Corporate America"

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.

As someone who firmly believes in equality and equal opportunities for all, I never get these "top women in technology" polls. It just doesn't seem right.

If the same publishers had run a "top men in technology" or "top homosexuals in technology" there would be outrage of discrimination.

But not with "top women..." type polls. Why is this?

I hear were you are coming from but this one is kinda easy- Women3.0 is a magazine that was created to promote & chronicle the advancement of women in corporate America- the primary target audience is women. The list is top 100 Women in Corporate America (not specific technology btw) so it is a list that their readers would be interested in reading.

If the same publishers had Men3.0 or LGBT3.0 and wanted to do top 100 lists focused on that audience there wouldn't be an issue.
