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

“A vast majority of boards mostly comprise men. The reason why this isn’t changing quickly enough is because male dominated boards think that a woman’s high emotional quotient (EQ) is a weakness and hindrance to effective decision making. This keeps them from accepting their female colleagues as equals and supporting them in moving up.
