Susan Mcgalla believes that the underlying reason why there are fewer women helming corporations than men is that very few women hold senior positions in corporations to help other women reach the top. Her solution is to engage the help of a decision making executive to sponsor women executives on their way up the corporate ladder. If sponsors invest in women leaders, they can change the system and break down gender barriers in the corporate world.
Susan MacGalla makes a difference not only in the organizations and corporations that she works with but tries to make a difference in the lives and careers of other women executives through her consulting services
