Female representation in business has long been a source of debate in the
market, especially in traditionally male-dominated industries such as the
auditing and accounting Industry.


Women not only bring different perspectives to male-dominated boardrooms,
Research shows they also improve their company?s bottom line and
operational performance.


While companies and government undoubtably can do more to promote
women in leadership positions - women need to learn how to tap into their
unique strengths and make use of existing platforms to become more
successful in the business world.


In the past, the business world has often been described as a "man?s world? and many
believe that this is still the case. But are women using this as a scapegoat to cover
up for their own lack of ambition or fear of success?


Despite the efforts made by government and business towards incorporating more
women in senior management positions, a new study on top executives in South
Africa shows a stereotypical CEO still exists.
