Challenge: Name 5 Female CEO / Leader

Can you name 5 CEOs? Good.

Can you name 5 non-male CEOs?

I couldn’t. It was much harder than I thought. Here we go:

Julie Sweet, CEO of Accenture

  • She was an attorney, and was the first CEO appointed by the company
  • Accenture gave me my first full time job
  • I bought a lot of suits and ties because of it

Anjali Sud, CEO of Vimeo

I came across her in a recent podcast she did with Nilay Patel. What energy! Vimeo is meaningful to us because that’s where I shared my first video creation online: https://vimeo.com/105014784

Corie Berry – CEO of Bestbuy

I loved BestBuy. I would spend many weekends there. Berry, a lifer at BestBuy, worked her way up to CEO. The coolest role during that journey has to be “President, Geek Squad Services.” 🤓

Gwynne Shotwell, COO & President of SpaceX

  • Her parents were a brain surgeon and an artist. Rocket science? Child play!
  • She was the COO of a company that sent and landed rockets
  • I think she is Captain Marvel

Kathleen Kennedy, President of Lucasfilm

  • She produced E.T., Empire of the Sun, Indiana Jones, and most of Spielberg’s greatest hits
  • + Miyazaki’s Ponyo
  • + the latest Star Wars Trilogy
  • She = epic
