Mission-driven, innovative, and able to inspire employees, 23andMe’s CEO and Co-Founder Anne Wojcicki, has always been central to what makes this a great place to work.
This week Comparably released its list of the Best CEOs for Women in 2021, and Anne was prominently listed.
The list was compiled through ratings from female employees on Comparably.com over the last year. The award highlights leaders whose female employees consistently rated them at the top. The awards were categorized by company size. 23andMe was in the large size category with 500 or more employees.
This isn’t the first time that Anne has been singled out over the years for her leadership and her ability to inspire employees. The recognition now affirmed her leadership during the challenges of the pandemic faced by workers over the last year. Anne did it all while also guiding the business through its transition to a publicly-traded company.
As one employee said about Anne in the anonymous rating:
“I love that she values work-life balance and treats us as human beings rather than cogs in a machine. I also love her readiness to innovate–even in things like rethinking the workplace of the future.”
