Women In Business

IMG_9303.JPG

I know I tend to write a lot about women in the workplace. Why? Not because women are any more important than men. I have worked with some brilliant men. So why? It’s simple. First, I am a woman in business. Second, I think many women underestimate themselves when it comes to being successful in the business world. Even though women today do not face the same obstacles women faced 50 years ago, for many women it is still an uphill battle. Some may argue this fact, however, I can tellyou from experience that women have a unique set of circumstances to overcome to be successful. A majority of leadership roles are filled by men, however, female participation is great for the economy. In fact, businesses that include women in leadership roles, and on boards do better. The reason is clear. Diversity. It is healthy to look at things diversely, especially in business.
