Gone are the days when men were more progressive or dominant than women as in the twenty-first century, everyone is equal and have the opportunities available to fulfill their dreams without prejudice. The corporate world has been one of the areas where the differences between men and women have been most criticized in the past few decades, mainly due to the lack of equal and fair opportunities to women as men. Susan McGalla, however, has come out with flying colors in a male-dominated corporate sector to hold some of the most critical positions in the leading companies in the fashion and retail industries. She has served as the CEO of Wet Seal Inc in the past and has helped the company achieve their business goals with precision. Susan McGalla has also been with the American Eagle Outfitters for a long time and served as its President as well for many years.
Susan McGalla feels that the industry has evolved and matured at a massive pace in the past few years, and the women leadership and employment support groups and programs have helped tremendously in balancing the position of the women in the industry. Susan McGalla says that while the glass ceiling problem hasn’t completely gone, and men in most of the companies mostly fill the executive level positions, there are many women too that are leading top Fortune listed firms. Susan McGalla says that women need to plan out their career to ensure they can achieve their goals without any significant hindrances.
Susan McGalla says that if women focus on their studies, complete their education, manage their finance well to support their education, and get good grades, it would open doors to multiple opportunities in the real world. It is because school is what would unlock possibilities of landing a dream job in the corporate world. Susan McGalla says that the companies should also be open to welcoming women in their businesses, and they must offer sponsorship to women who deeply invested in their job and career. It would only help the business to grow and achieve better results and also help the company represent diversity in its recruiting policies.
