It's taken a long time, but thankfully we're finally moving toward Sandberg's vision of a truly inclusive world where every woman has the opportunity to succeed. In fact, there are more women in senior management jobs than ever before. Moreover, plenty of these highly competent women have risen to the top of industries once viewed as 'boys only' clubs. They include General Motors boss Mary Barra, the first woman to become Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of a 'big three' automaker company.
So how did women like Mary smash through the glass ceiling? And what advice do they have for ambitious young girls and women looking to follow in their footsteps? Small business finance provider OnDeck has the answers. Using data collected from Harvard Business Review, it designed an infographic highlighting the best pieces of business advice from highly successful female business founders and CEOs.
As well as tips from Mary Barra, the infographic includes advice from Bumble founder Whitney Wolfe Herds, Flickr Founder Caterina Fake and many other high-achieving females.
These inspiring women never let anything get in their way. So why should you?
