The power of women in business


Some of the first images that come to mind when we think of women are homemakers, breakfast lunch and dinner makers, laundry doer, and the taking care of children.

There is nothing wrong with these roles, and is greatly appreciated by the majority of people, but is it wrong to think women can do more than just their roles at home?

Different polls have been taking to give evidence that suggest women succeed at mentoring, being ethical and honest, and providing fair pay and benefits. Results have also shown that when women are present at business oriented meetings they tend to be more professional, formal, and goal oriented in solving different topics. There is great evidence that women not only can succeed in business, but that they are great assets in the business world in producing positive results.

Women are continually growing in their roles as not only participants in the business world, but also leaders in this field. Women such as Sheryl Sandberg, Abigail Johnson, Ellen cullman and more are proving that they can do more and follow their ambitions regardless of what the media, social opinions, or Hollywood have to say about it.

Women are no longer held to the idea of being secretaries or the assistant to the business leaders, but are in fact leaders themselves. Women do not need to be seen as the bench-warmers, but as players in the field of business. It’s time to not only accept the fact that women are helping in the business world to make improvements in their own way, but to also help promote the idea that women offer different strengths that can bring more success to the business world.

Research shows that women in leadership roles often tend to display excellent business skills, including: people development, participatory decision making, efficient communication, and inspiration.

Hence, the more companies take on women in managerial roles, the more everybody benefits. And companies see financial benefits when increasing the proportion of women managers. Among the Fortune 500 companies, those with the highest proportions of women in top leadership positions have seen much higher financial returns than those the lowest proportions.

This is not necessarily an issue about equality, but about bringing improvement from all directions regardless of gender, race, or other statuses.
