Only the Men Survive

New York magazine has an interesting article about women in leadership (or lack thereof) on Wall Street. The anaylsis (though brief) is told through the story of Zoe Cruz, who was first in line to be the CEO of Morgan Stanley but was fired after the morgage crisis mushroomed. No woman has ever led a Wall Street firm, and other leadership positions aren’t much different: Lehman Brothers and Morgan Stanley each have one woman in upper-management, Credit Suisse has none, and JP Morgan leads the pack with two.

More interpretation would have made this piece better, but it’s an interesting story nonetheless.
