There's always a danger of marginalizing women with
articles that focus on their particular experiences or
situations. And our cover package arguably does just that,
providing leadership lessons for women drawn from the
experiences of three highly successful female IT leaders
- Andi Karaboutis of Biogen Idec, Pam Parisian of AT&T,
and former CIO Becky Blalock, the author of a careeradvice book for female executives.
Certainly, the professional experiences of these three
women have been shaped in part by the fact that they are
female in what is still a male-dominated profession. Some
of what they have to say about successful IT leadership
has a gender component - particularly concerning
management style - and thus should be useful to younger
women working their way up through the IT ranks.
At the same time, all three say they don't think their
gender has hindered - or helped - them over the course
of their careers. Much of the advice they have to offer
reflects who they are as individuals rather than as women.
For that reason, we think this section, while aimed at
young and aspirational female IT executives, holds
interesting messages for all IT executives, whatever their
gender or age.
If the cover package offers gender-relevant career advice,
our special section "A CIO's First 90 Days" offers genesisrelevant advice - how to get off on the right foot
in a new job.
Over the next year, CIO Straight Talk will offer a variety
of perspectives on this topic in a variety of formats -
articles, webinars, events. In line with the Straight Talk
philosophy, most of these views will be offered by your
peers - fellow CIOs and other senior IT executives.
But to kick off the program, we offer the views of two
leadership transition experts, Peter High and Michael
Watkins, on the genesis of a successful job tenure - what
first steps to take in order to ensure success in your
new position.
