note today - that being kudos to Raymond
Hackney for profiling nearly two
dozen domain industry women in a
five-part series that concluded today at
blog. Back in 2005 we wrote a Cover
Story about the need for more
women in a business that had
everything going for it except
diversity. We were able to feature three
great trail blazing ladies in Donny
Mahony, Marcia Lynn Walker
and Michele Miller, but few
others were in the domain game then.
Thankfully, as Ray's series clearly
illustrates, things have changed
for the better
with dozens of smart,
exceptionally talented women occupying
key positions throughout the industry.
Our field is much stronger and more
professional as a result.
