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

“The main challenge facing women is unconscious biases and limits – be it from women themselves and most often, those around them. These arise in the form of questions such as whether she can do it, if her decisions will waver with her emotions, and whether she can manage both her family and that seat at the top. Yes, she can! If she isn’t merely restricted but helped, coached and mentored to grow!
