Leadership and Board of Salesforce.com

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,┬ábecause US tech is a meritocracy, right?

By the way, about ‘comprise’? Salesforce is using it wrong. The sentence should read ‘The current board of directors at Salesforce.com comprises the following:’. A company worth billions and they can’t write a grammatical sentence.
