The number of executive positions filled by men in the corporate world is still more than those filled by women, and it continues to remain so. There has been a massive improvement in the last few years, but women still have to struggle a lot more than men to up their ranks in the corporate world. Susan McGalla, Vice President of Creative Development and Business Strategy at Pittsburgh Steelers Inc, feels that women should plan their career accordingly to ensure they can move up the ranks in the corporate world with ease.
