Welcome back, Ladies!

Women Ceo 3

Welcome back to work, ladies!

As a source of inspiration for the new working year – that begins in September – I’d like to share with you an article from a Glassdoor blog entitled “8 Highest Rated Women CEOs in 2017”.

I want this to be a source of motivation for everyone in the new year, especially women.

Let me explain: it’s very difficult for women to get to the top in the labour market.

Everywhere in the world - although my own focus is on Italy, given my professional experience and because GoodGoing! mainly covers the Italian market.
At all levels and particularly the higher you get.
Moreover, in Italy, after a woman has had two children, there’s every chance she will be forced out of bigger companies.

So I’d like to pass on some lessons for everyone using the example of 8 female CEOs:

It might be difficult but it’s possible. Becoming the CEO of a big company or a reputable organisation and acquiring international visibility is not for everyone. Indeed, many people might not even be interested in this type of career. However, the good news is that it is possible for women. The article talks about a survey and a league table that only includes the UK, France and Germany within Europe.
Italy does not even appear in the rankings.

In some countries it’s not possible yet. Nevertheless,these 8 role models are living proof that it can be done …. It’s just a matter oftime!

You don’t need to become a CEO, even though this is an indicator of professional success because it’s the highest level you can reach without having equity in a company. In this case the position of CEO is seen as an example of success, although everyone has their own “success” to pursue and reach!

It could be a good idea to read the bios of each of these women to identify details that are more relevant to you. You might identify more with some of them and less with others.

But the main thing is these role models exist, because as women we really need them.
And remember, don’t be cynical by asking yourself: whose daughter is she or who did she sleep with to get there …
