On Janurary 14, 2015, PRNews released an interview Susan McGalla in which PRNnews asked for her view of women in the workplace. The article states “In the mid twentieth century, only one woman in five worked.” Today, women compose 46.9% of the labor force in the United States. However, only 14.6% hold executive officers.
Susan McGalla, the founder of P3 Executive Consulting, LLC states her opinion on women in the business sector is, “Not to focus on the glass ceiling, but work ethics.” She further advises women to build a network of support and influencers.
Within the past two-decade women have made progress in the workplace with higher degrees and many have replaced their male counterparts in the workforce.
McGalla is regarded as an expert on branding and marketing. She desires to see talented women in higher positions in the workplace.
McGalla’s expertise on current issues facing women in the workplace has led to a speaking engagement before the prestigious Carnegie Mellon University Conference for CEO’s.
She offers important tips to women seeking higher positions in the workplace. McCalla advises, “Young women not to be intimidated by the growing cost of a higher education.” She noted, “While there is continued growth in jobs, for many women, it is difficult to advance in the workplace.”
McGalla further states that currently, “Women make up almost half professional workers.” This number should change rapidly,current statistics for college enrollment for females exceeds those of the male population. In the future, woman will have more access to executive positions within companies to meet continued demands for a skilled workforce.
McGalla advises, “Not to reinforce stereotypes, and let your work speak for itself.”
MGalla view, continued confidence, higher education and opportunities for skilled women with work ethics will lead to higher paid positions.
