After arriving from rival Google in 2008, Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook’s second-in-command has helped grow its 70 million user base into over 750 million active “friends” today, representing about 11% of the world’s population. The Harvard MBA served as chief of staff for the U.S. Treasury Department under President Bill Clinton, and managed Google’s online global sales and operations as a vice president. One of few prominent women in tech, Sandberg has been vocal about empowering women. “We still haven’t achieved the goal of real equality for women in the workplace and men in the home,” she wrote in an August op-ed. “We can–we must–do better.”

“Larry Summers taught me early in my career, you want to work for the absolutely smartest people you can, and Mark Zuckerberg definitely falls to that category,” Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook COO tells Forbes. “People like Mark come around once in a decade, once in a generation, who have such a strong view of where the world is going, or should be heading and then the tenacity and the determination to actually create that world.”
