Using Mentoring for Breaking the Glass Ceiling?

Mentoring continues to grow, but the challenge of how we break the glass ceiling and provide the opportunity for women to have a seat at the board table and/or leadership roles in many organizations still exists.
How can we move past this by leveraging the "gift of mentoring"?

Women in Board Room - Yes She Can!

Interesting point! Anything said involving genders could kick off a long debate. I'd like to bring up a few observations in which women have outsmarted quantitatively and qualitatively in many leadership positions in cultures that have removed gender barriers as a policy.
- Women have occupied boardrooms (ex: Pepsico chairperson) when they put their talents first and that gets recognized.
- Women can objectively engage with leadership requirements in functions they are involved in, say in the specific business, products, markets etc.
- Finally in most societies gender bias is shrinking and no one can afford to overlook talents, no matter which gender it possesses and the trick to outsmart any gender bias is to put your 'talent in context' first or simply said - showcase your strength first, perhaps easier said then done, but still it works!
My 2 cents!
