At Dreamforce, Sheryl Sandberg was flogging her oddball high-tech, low-substance feminism, which led Marc Benioff to blurt ‘I want to have more women leaders at Salesforce. I want to have more balance between the men and women leaders on my team’.
Some diversity is called for, obviously. Aside from the four women in management roles or on the board, it’s 90% white guys. But it’s ok, because US tech is a meritocracy, right?
