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

“Women in leadership positions lack the visibility of successful female role models and mentors. Women mentoring women is one of the best ways to help equalise leadership in the workplace. Traditionally, women have had fewer mentoring opportunities available to them than their male colleagues. This lack of mentoring has been detrimental to their climb up the corporate ladder, which I believe is a significant barrier to women’s advancement in the business world.
