Pioneering Stories From The Female Trailblazers Who Came Before Marissa Mayer

As Marissa Mayer takes up her job as CEO of Yahoo and her torchbearer role for ambitious women juggling careers and families, Fast Company gathered wisdom from an inspiring group of women who broke barriers in media, entertainment, dance, athletics, and more.She may not be the first pregnant CEO ever, but Marissa Mayer broke through a pretty impenetrable glass ceiling when she was appointed the new CEO of Yahoo just a few months before she’s due to give birth to her first child. Though there’s no hard data to prove it, Mayer may just be the first woman asked to helm a Fortune 500 company while in her second trimester. Indeed, of the 18 women occupying corner offices, she may be the youngest.Mayer’s no stranger to trailblazing. Continue reading

Building a nation of thinkers

Building a nation of thinkersIan Wilkinson using chess to improve students’ performanceBY VERNON DAVIDSON Executive editor — publicationsSunday, July 01, 2012YOU can tell the minute you enter Ian Wilkinson’s Magnificent Chess Foundation that he’s passionate about the game.Impressive portraits of world chess masters — from Wilhelm Steinitz, who held the title over the period 1886 to 1894, to Vasily Smyslov, 1957-1958 — are mounted on the wall in the foyer.Beyond the lobby, on your way to the multimedia and seminar rooms, large photos of Bobby Fischer, Maurice Ashley and late American entertainer Ray Charles adorn the wall.Fischer, regarded as one of the most gifted chess players of all time, won the World Chess Championship on September 1, 1972 and lost the title when he failed to defend it on April 3, 1975.Ashley inked his name in the history books by becoming the first African-American to attain the coveted title of International Grandmaster of Chess in 1999.Charles, the blind black American who gained stardom as a singer and piano player, was a known chess fan who, we are told, often played against his band members, friends, and a few interviewers.But even if after seeing the drawings and photos, you’re not convinced about Wilkinson’s love for the game, you’ll be divested of that doubt after speaking with him.“Chess is about thinking, planning ahead, strategising, and it’s exciting; so everybody should learn chess,” said Wilkinson, an attorney, who is convinced that the game of skill can contribute to improving educational standards and reducing crime.“We at the Magnificent Chess Foundation are building a nation of thinkers in Jamaica, and we’d like to extend it to the Caribbean because we realise that this is the way forward to economic development and a great way of life for the Caribbean people,” Wilkinson told the Jamaica Observer.“At the end of the day, life is about thinking, and if you can’t think, you can’t progress. It’s as simple as that,” added Wilkinson, who has dedicated an entire floor above his Swallowfield Avenue law office in Kingston to the Chess Foundation.His belief that chess can change lives is shared by principals of some of the more than 30 schools islandwide in which he has introduced the game in the past few years, and where the Magnificent Chess Foundation runs active programmes.In a March 2011 letter thanking Wilkinson for implementing the ‘Chess in School’ programme at Greenwich All-Age, Principal Bryan Guscott said he had noticed an improvement in behaviour, self-confidence, self-esteem and social skills among the 333 students exposed to the game. He also said that literacy levels had improved and the students were increasingly willing to participate in class discussions.The testimonial from Richmond Park Preparatory Principal Helen Douglas was just as encouraging.“It has improved the overall tone of the school by contributing to a more quiet environment; conducive to study and academic pursuits,” Douglas said in a letter, also penned in March 2011.“It has stimulated the minds of the students to concentrate and think in a logical, reasoned manner, thereby contributing to improved performance in mathematics in particular,” she added.Dunrobin Preparatory Principal Heather Lewis, in her letter to Wilkinson in March 2009, said that among the school’s 21 students registered in the programme, the average grades for mathematics and reading were 85 per cent and 95 per cent respectively.More than 50 per cent of them were on the school’s honour roll, having attained overall averages of 90 per cent in all subjects.Lewis pointed out that while some of these children were already achieving high grades, they have continued to excel since starting the programme, and others have showed improvement.At Ewarton Primary School in St Catherine, Principal Marjorie Edwards-Bailey informed Wilkinson in January last year that she had integrated the teaching of mathematics with chess in a programme she called ‘Chess-matics’. That, she said, was in response to concerns among educators across Jamaica about the low performance of students in mathematics.Since the introduction of the programme, she said, some students have become more focused, disciplined and receptive to teaching and learning. They participate more in class and attempt to do more questions as their confidence and reasoning skills developed, and there has been improvement in students’ mathematics grades.According to Wilkinson, Edwards-Bailey admitted that the Chess in Schools programme had reduced the number of incidents and accidents at Ewarton Primary, because the children, “instead of running up and down and injuring themselves by falling”, were playing chess.“It was a revelation because it was the first I heard that coming from a principal,” Wilkinson said with a grin of satisfaction.
