Susan McGalla’s Insights On How Women Can Be Successful

Over the years, there has been persistent advocacy for an increase in the number of female employees at the workplace. There have been campaigns for gender equality in our societies where women are now able to cultivate their natural abilities and skills through education. The 21st century has recorded improvement in the female gender representation at workplace. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, 46.6% of labor force is composed of women. In the executive sector, 14.6% are women. Many leaders have embarked on campaigns that seek to boost these numbers. Susan McGalla is one of active campaigners for this agenda. The business leader notes that women still struggle to excel in their careers and shows her support through offering tips on how to succeed in future.

  • Increase education levels for greater opportunities

Susan points out that the U.S. economy depends on skill. To this end, women need to sharpen their skills further through pursuing higher education in order to match the number of male employees. She advises that despite the increased cost of higher education, women should think smart and look for ways to acquire financial help and scholarships. However, Susan recognizes the increased number of women in higher education programs. She expresses her optimism that women will in future compete with men equally due to the increasing number of women college enrollment compared to that of men.

  • Self-confidence

Women can easily be intimated depending with the surrounding environment at the workplace. According to a study carried out by Bain & Company, women’s level of aspiration drop by 60% because of management influence. Given these findings, Susan contends the necessity of supporting women through establishing a network of influencers. She indicates that women can only improve their management positions if their confidence is steadfast.

  • Overlook the ‘glass ceiling’

Referring to her personal success, Susan says it would not have happened if she had not ignored the “glass ceiling” notion. She overlooked the social protocol of gender-designated roles that dominates workplaces and focused on work and ethic. She concludes by challenging women not to be subjected to discrimination and prejudice, instead they should ignore and let their efforts bear fruit.
