The likelihood of appointing a female CEO increases if there are more females in the top executive team and the board of directors. For a company to appoint a female CEO, the female representation must first rise in both the executive team and the board of directors. Master's thesis of Anna Garant.
Career adaptability is needed to land a successful career path in a world of unforeseen changes File
When you don’t know what the future will bring, or when the path you thought you were on takes an unexpected turn, it makes sense to pursue a diverse portfolio of options. Stay active and cultivate knowledge, skills, resources, and relationships until you’ve got strong new legs to walk on in exploring your career.
Self-reflection is a practice best nourished by talking out loud in social exchanges with people who respond, sympathize, question and share their own experiences. Just the simple act of creating and telling a story about what you want to do, or why you want a change, can clarify your thinking and propel you forward, by committing you publicly to making a change. But even that is hard in the current context of self-isolation and social distancing. Still, with a bit of initiative and creativity, you can find ways to explain yourself out loud — by scheduling walks that respect social distance, by working with others online, by creating a Zoom group that meets regularly to share plans.
