Leadership is not for the faint of heart. According to Pew Research in 2018, only 26 women held CEO roles at Fortune 500 companies that year. As women push to reach the top, we are faced with many challenges our male counterparts quite honestly don’t face. Among those challenges is the strength to find your own voice as a leader, and to trust your instinct and your leadership skills. In male-dominated industries, these challenges can seem to grow, but we can also push past them by being confident, speaking up, building alliances, and standing in our success.
