For hundreds and thousands of women across the United States and beyond, Susan McGalla is a living inspiration. She has achieved so much in her short career as a female that many men have not been able to accomplish in their entire career. Susan McGalla is a hardworking and passionate female executive, who has worked hard to get noticed and be deserving of the top positions in the companies she has worked for. At Wet Seals Inc, Susan McGalla was the CEO of the company for many years, and at American Eagle, Susan worked as the President for several years. At both these companies, Susan McGalla helped in improving company’s performance, efficiency, turnover, and market reputation. It also helped these companies that Susan McGalla headed to get new clients and expand their business.
Susan McGalla is a big supporter of the women empowerment initiatives. She believes that the women support groups and employment programs have done their part of helping women find a job as well as support, but it hasn’t been able to get women to make it through the top executive positions in the company. Susan McGalla says that one should not hesitate in acknowledging that the glass ceiling problem does exist in the corporate world, and it has been putting the women back in just about every field. However, Susan McGalla says that with the help of sponsors and mentors in the companies, the women can be shown the right way to achieve their dream goals in the company.
Susan McGalla says that women must not waste their college time in other activities, and must focus on getting good grades. Compromising on education would not help when you are planning to get selected by the top companies in the country. Even though most companies accept women employees without bias, it is hard for women to achieve the executive position. Susan McGalla believes that mentors in the companies can identify the women deserving professionals who are worthy of moving up in their career. The sponsors and mentors would help the women to understand what needs to be done to move up the ladder of success in the corporate world.
