SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ - As a woman who is passionate about public service and engaging women and men in civic life, I am delighted to sponsor a project along with a team of exceptional women from South Plainfield that recognizes the life of a woman that continues to break down barriers in the business community. I invite contest participants to take advantage of this opportunity to examine the life of Susan Wojcicki CEO of YouTube.
Ms. Susan D. Wojcicki has been Chief Executive Officer of YouTube, LLC at Google Inc. since 2014.
Ms. Wojcicki served as Senior Vice President of Ads & Commerce at Google Inc. from April 2011 to
2014. She served as Head of Advertising at Google Inc. She served as Vice President of Product
Management at Google Inc. and was responsible for the product management of AdSense as well
as Google Book Search, Google Video and the syndication of Google products to partners
Women have traditionally been underrepresented in positions of leadership in government and
business. Please discuss why Women’s History Month exists in the United States and how Ms.
Wojcicki is having an impact on women in the United States? Please also discuss what role you
will play in making this scenario the exception and not the norm.
