Oh, and another thing about Yahoo’s heralded new CEO: She’s pregnant

Wednesday, July 18, 2012

There’s more than just her age—37—and the fact that she’s left a top job at Google to take over a faded tech giant that’s surprised people about Marissa Mayer’s agreeing to become Yahoo’s CEO. She’s also six months pregnant. She and technology advisor husband Zachary Bogue are expecting a boy in October.

Says Bloomberg News:

“Yahoo’s board found Mayer’s pregnancy a nonissue and that’s a big sign of progress,” said Gayle Tzemach Lemmon, deputy director of the Women and Foreign Policy Program at the New York-based Council on Foreign Relations, who is pregnant with twins. “But at many companies, it’s still an issue.”
