LinkedIn sees many impressive executive women leaders

LinkedIn's culture is its foundation, and it takes great pride in it. As the collective personality of its organization, it sets the company apart, defines what it is, and shapes what it aspires to be.

LinkedIn values diversity, and as such has two impressive women at senior executive level.
