An amazing group of seven women, The Chipsters, who are also IP Lawyers, tell us why companies with women in top positions are run better and why without Steve Jobs, Apple is doomed unless they get some women in their executive team. Click here to read the original article on Forbes.
I know this probably seems like an obvious fact to most of us, but how many of us actually live and exude this forward thinking.
They are saying Steve Jobs was a genius and in order to carry on this legacy for Apple the current all-male executive team is going to need to add some estrogen to even things out. Statistics have shown companies with more women in management score better on the nine dimensions of company excellence. (Women Matter, McKinsey 2007)
So how do we get more women in management in companies everywhere?
Too often women do not ask for, or stand up for what they need or think. They do not have confidence in their abilities. The Chipsters have found that often time even women who are over-qualified, question their ability to do the job.
It is time to change that, we can all think of a person or two…or ten who are in a job they are UNDER-qualified for, and you know you could do a better job. That should be your attitude for everything; you KNOW you can do this!
