Carly started out as a secretary for a small real estate business. She typed, filed paperwork and answered the phone. Eventually she would become a leader in technology, business and charity.

In just fifteen years Carly went from an entry-level employee to leading AT&T's spin-off of Lucent Technologies and, later, Lucent's North American operations.

In 1999, Hewlett-Packard recognized the tremendous challenges facing their company and asked Carly to be their new chief executive. As CEO of HP, she was the first woman to lead a Fortune 50 business.

Since leaving HP, Carly has focused on giving back. She has served in a large number of advisory and policy-making positions for national and state governments. She has also led a number of charities and nonprofits, serving as the Chairman of the American Conservative Union Foundation, which annually hosts CPAC; the Chairman of the world's largest product philanthropy organization; and the Chairman of a Christian faith-based organization that helps lift millions out of poverty worldwide.
