Xerox CEO advises female professionals to “marry someone older”

Xerox CEO advises female professionals to “marry someone older”

March 22, 2013

Ursula BurnsThe controversial CEO made the claim at a conference “aimed at boosting women in the workplace”.

DNA India and the Huffington Post reported on the comments made by Ursula Burns at a conference hosted by working women’s organisation Catalyst.

Burns’ claim was that the marriage to a 20-year older man was “one of the keys to her success” having started out as a mechanical engineer and intern at Xerox before becoming the first African-American female CEO of a Fortune 400 company. Burns stated “so the secret is to marry someone 20 years older”, noting that her husband could “retire and stay at home with their kids once her job got more demanding”.

Burns is no stranger to controversy, claiming to be underpaid in 2011 despite a wide-ranging series of job and salary cuts at the company. She was granted a reduced amount of compensation last year due to Xerox’s poor performance, and a series of financial analysts stated late last year that she should be replaced for the company to improve its financial standing.
