Women everywhere struggle to reach the high level positons in organizations all over the world. Women, such as Susan McGalla, have helped to make the way easier for other women leaders. McGalla has to work for what she wanted all her life and she was toughened by growing up with her two brothers and football coach dad.
McGalla has to work her way up the ladder of American Eagle Outfitters and when she started her career, she was the only women among many male executives. She ended up founding P3 Executive Consulting and is now in the position of Vice President of the Business and Creative aspect of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Although the industry is primarily dominated by men, McGalla has made her place high in the ranks of the business world.
McGalla is very confident and has become successful because of her fearless nature. Many women struggle to get the opportunities to become truly successful and there is certainly no shortage of networks for women. There are now many groups that help to provide women leaders with the support and platforms they need in order to succeed. Women have proven that they are just as capable as men to succeed. However, change is slow to happen and women only fill just a quarter of the senior rolls in worldwide companies.
Statistics have proven that businesses that are diversified by gender are 15% more likely to outperform companies that are not. The theory is that because they are more open to new ideas such as diversification, they are able to become much more successful.
Susan McGalla is a very successful executive consultant. She began her career at Jason Horne Company before she joined the American Eagle Outfitters team where she was president and CMO. McGalla moved on and became a private consultant for financial and retail industries that were in the business of investing.
McGalla obtained her bachelor’s degree in business and marketing form Mount Union College. She also serves on the Board of Advisors at the College as well.
