Gender inequality has been a long issue since the times of our great grandparents. The good thing is that in the past decades, there has been progressing when it comes to bridging the gap. For instance, women were not given the right to education in the past but were given the opportunity later on, and today, they can get into any course and any university that they want.
This is also true when it comes to career. Since women now have access to education which they didn’t have before, more job opportunities opened to them and it’s now very common to see female workers in various industries including customer service, health, science, hospitality and more. Although there have been positive changes in their status in the workplace, gender inequality is still not completely gone.
Most women are still paid less than men and it’s also more difficult for them to advance to higher positions. Moreover, some industries remain to be not so welcoming of females like the tech field. Even so, there are still women who pushed the boundaries and proved everyone that they too can succeed in a male-dominated workplace like tech.
The infographic we prepared will show you the fantastic women who handled top positions in various tech companies in 2016 and became successful. We want to prove everyone wrong that gender is not an issue to become an effective leader.
