We enjoy following the current lives of powerful women. But sometimes it’s fun to look back and remember how those women ended up where they are today. Each Friday, we’ll dig up a vintage video starring your favorite leading ladies in their early days.
Today: we learn a little more about IBM’s soon-to-be first female CEO, Virginia Rometty.
In less than two days time, Virginia “Ginni” Rometty takes the helm at IBM, so we expect we’ll be seeing a lot of her. And what kind of leader and speaker is she? We’re checking out a keynote address that Rometty gave back in 2007 to get a better idea.
In this video, Rometty speaks about information as infrastructure in Africa. That sound over your head? Rometty’s extremely good at explaining it all in layman’s terms.
