  Women in Board Room - Yes She Can!
Sridhar Gopal, Management Consultant, India, Premium Member
  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!
