Woman CEO

The twenty-first century is a period of global changes that relate to various aspects of our life - social as well as working. Business is no longer for males only - females are welcome, too. Moreover, today women all over the globe hold their own in leadership positions quite successfully. They have already proven themselves as great business executives, politicians, entrepreneurs, etc. Now the percentage of women in the workforce is much higher compared to previous generations.







 


Leadership is for men - that is the stereotype that is no longer up-to-date.


According to numerous studies, women have scored much higher than men on several key leadership qualities. However, equality isn’t enough yet. Women have got immense potential to lead huge companies, but the percentage of female CEO is still low. As research results show, public companies are more likely to have women on their boards or in top positions rather than private. Additionally, the highest proportion of C-suite women happens in the financial, retail, and healthcare spheres.


Females on board - is it necessary?


The answer is undoubted YES! The modern world needs more women on various companies’ boards and in CEO positions. See why it is essential to boost the number of female CEOs and how women can contribute to the business’s success.

It has been proven that greater board and leadership diversity brings significant benefits. Well, it also brings fresh perspectives on markets. When it comes to business, gender diversity really matters now. It affects the brand's overall image, customers, shareholders, and employees' satisfaction positively.


Women change the gaming industry.


Analyzing the video gaming industry today, we can see (and it cannot but please) that more women get involved in game development. They take part in various processes - from game development to managing companies. Needless to say, women show excellent results either as development specialists or leaders. A lot of well-known game development studios are managed and run by females. Such changes are actively supported throughout the industry. But not so long ago, the video game industry seemed like unconquered territory for females. Luckily, things are changing in game development. Here is an interesting fact: Intel Corporation has invested $300 million towards female diversity in the tech and game industries. They aim to increase the number of women working as game developers and designers.

The future seems to be quite bright for women in the gaming industry. More noteworthy women in corporate positions inspire others to pave the way for climbing the career ladder. Below are a few prominent names in the gaming industry:

  • Jade Raymond - CEO of Stadia Games and Entertainment, founder of Ubisoft Toronto, and Motive Studios.

  • Amy Hennig - Scriptwriter and director at Naughty Dog.

  • Amber Dalton - Sr. director of sales/sponsors at Twitch.

  • Valeria Castro - founder and CEO at Platonic Games.


So why does the gaming industry need women?


Female representation leads to positive responses from the public (but it is still lacking). One more reason is boosting a different point of view in the gaming industry. Women are brilliant, innovative, creative, and rational. They come up with interesting and unusual ideas which can impact projects positively. A once male-dominated field, the gaming industry has recently shifted and extended its acceptance to females who are equally as interested and qualified as their male counterparts.
