A Catalyst study of more than 900 senior executives from Fortune 1000 companies found that women and men have equal desires to hold the job of CEO. However many experts are still seeing a significantly larger majority of men in the boardroom than women.
In a blog by CNN Financial Editor Todd Benjamin, Benjamin also asserts a similar claim, and shares that even when media outlets like CNN approach successful women who ARE in the boardroom, they are reticent to appear on television.
Are women downplaying their gender to stay successful?
And why are many women choosing to leave more traditional corporate ranks, becoming the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs in the country?
Our guests discuss these issues and more. Topics include how coaches can help empower women to play to their strengths and recover gracefully from setbacks, in addition to how women can navigate challenging situations, while remaining authentic and true to who they are.
