Q: What is the main challenge facing women who aspire to reach the top in the corporate world?

“It is certainly challenging for women to move up the ladder in the corporate world as they face numerous gender-based challenges that stem from their social roles. It is also no secret that these challenges limit the chances of women climbing the leadership ladder to the highest levels of an organisation. However, lack of self-esteem, self-belief and self-empowerment are the main suppressors of a woman’s path to the top of the corporate world.
