Here is a great article about Erin Callan, the former CFO of Lehman Brothers. She stepped down from her position in July, following Lehman's dismal second quarter earnings report.
Erin is now head of Credit Suisse's global hedge fund business. In the article she discusses the magnitude of current financial crises, the particulars surrounding her departure, and muses on how this situation was brought about. She also discusses her experience being a woman on Wall Street, something that, as she says, was a "phenomenom." She does not come off as bitter, instead she appears to be very calm and persistent about resolving the crises and the future of the markets.
I hope more women can burst through the ranks and rise to the top of organizations. I'm not saying it would make the world a perfect place, but maybe as things change on Wall Street and the landscape shifts, more women can be included at the table.
