Ever since leaving eBay as its chief, heterosexual Meg Whitman has set her eyes on a higher calling: chief executive of California State. Except the very people who rank folks like Whitman according to their influence has, for the first time in three years, found her completely irrelevant.
Fortune magazine knocked Whitman off its annual “Powerful Women in Business,” where she’s enjoyed a spot for three years — and the last year was after she left eBay.
Not that we put blind faith in magazine listicles, but it’s pretty amusing that a biz mag would drop Whitman when she rearranged her plans to attend Fortune‘s own “Powerful Women” summit — instead of attending the first major meeting of California’s gubernatorial candidates.
How unfortunate for her.
