As men and women grow and continue their education, they have equal ambitions to pursue a successful professional career, with roughly equal levels of achievement — though some studies suggest that women do slightly better. Living in the 21st century, big-shot companies are taking strides in promoting gender equality, breaking the glass ceiling, and improving inclusion and diversity. Right now is a great and important time in history to do everything possible to help forge a more gender-balanced world.

For a growing number of women, the fastest route to the c-suite is launching their own business. Today’s start-up culture empowers women to be their own boss and pays their own salary, defining how they want to work and making the balance of career and family life more comfortable.

More and more women in leadership positions are pushing the boundaries of gender equality by utilizing their strengths and leadership qualities – in skill, knowledge, experience, and emotion. They are pursuing the things they want from their job and their career, not waiting for it to come to them.
