I absolutely ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ this story.

Meet the millionaire CEO of Booking.com @Gillian Tans

- who bikes to work

- does not put on any airs

- wears casual attire on stage

I understand that sometimes we need to play the career game. But sometimes I chafe at this game, and wish women could be more authentic and real.

As an executive who has chosen to ride/walk to work for most of my career, who resents wearing make up and live very "simple" life, I don't see many success stories of women winning despite not playing the game.

Hence me loving this story!

Gillian strongly believes social and economic change are driven by technology, and if women continue to be under-represented in technical roles, it may create a larger social divide and give rise to gender stereotypes.

Gillian - you are my new role model.

So a quick question for you - which role models do you have who play a better game and get a better result?
