This was a bit of good news today:
Congrats to Ms. Mary Barra, who is now in the drivers seat of product development at a major automaker, which we know is an extremely male-dominated industry. After reading the article, I can now see why the auto industry has been in such trouble in the last few years. Ms. Barra is extremely qualified, having an engineering degree and working as VP of global manufacturing in the past. However, until her promotion this week, she was VP of Human Resources. What was someone with years of development, engineering and manufacturing doing working in Human Resources?
