“Passion is a gender-neutralizing force. Do things that you’re not ready to do,’’ Marissa Mayer, Google’s VP (and the company’s first female engineer) told the crowd at the sold-out MIT Sloan Women in Management Conference. Mayer, who ranks No. 38 on Forbes’s list of Most Powerful Women in Business, was joined by Liz Claman, host of the Fox Business Network’s “Countdown to the Closing Bell,’’ CNN anchor Fredricka Whitfield, Laura Sen, chief executive of BJ’s Wholesale Club (and one of only 12 female CEOs leading a Fortune 500 company), and filmmaker Jennifer Siebel Newsom, who wrote and directed the documentary “Miss Representation,’’ which looks at the media’s portrayal of women.
