Women In Business Want To Stretch The Envelope

Business woman This is an interesting tidbit to chew on. Almost half of the female business professionals around the world believe they are insufficiently challenged, despite being confident of their skills and capabilities.

A survey of 3,600 professionals working in medium to large organizations  found that 46 percent of women are not being challenged significantly in their current roles.  These roles include the ability to manage their workload, delegate tasks and to negotiate.  

The research just just released as part of Accenture’s celebration of International Women’s Day on March 8th. They also found that almost six in 10 women  believe that their careers are successful or very successful.  And, nearly half (46 percent) of women who consider themselves very successful reported that they are in jobs that require them to stretch way beyond their expected responsibilities.
