It seems like more and more women are showing and proving that just as productive if not more. Women are outperforming men which can set up the younger generation for success. The older generation are breaking through the glass boundaries which paves the way for the younger generation. “Although appoinment of women and minorities to challenging positions may appear to be fostering diversity, setting them up to fail may ultimately be more negative for diversity efforts.”
