GM Names First Female CEO
GM announced today that Mary T. Barra will be their new CEO as Daniel Akerson will retire in January. She will be the first woman to lead a major auto company and join a handful of women who are CEOs of major American companies today (LA Times). Because we were just talking about women in the workforce yesterday, I thought you guys might want to take a look at this article. NYT makes the statement, "But by choosing a female C.E.O., the G.M. board underscored how the once lumbering automaker is embracing change and diversity." How exciting to see this change happening!
