For Startups, Percentage of Female Executives Correlates Positively With Success

Shea Bennet of Media Bistro’s “All Twitter” section suggests that this could spell bad news for Twitter, which has only one female executive:

Twitter certainly isn’t alone in this shameful display. Foursquare has no female executives at all, and Dropbox only has one. Except… Foursquare has 100 employees, and Dropbox has 170.

Twitter has 1,300+.

Personally, I’m guessing that Twitter could easily be the exception to the rule, since they seem to be doing pretty well. This isn’t the first study to find this sort of correlation, though, so I hope other businesses are paying attention.

Also: Dropbox only has 170 employees?!
