The construct of gender roles and norms has gradually been wearing away over the decades to reveal a better outlook on society’s treatment of an individual regardless of sex. Though as the roles for both women and become less defined and more opportunities become equally available to the right candidate, those wishing to help women wishing to fulfill their aspirations within corporate America are tasked with the increasingly difficult problem of creating useful, applicable advice while not simply pandering to a female audience.
The constant barrage of over-used tropes and advice tailored to career-oriented women has inundated working professionals so much so that the buzzwords common to convention halls and auditoriums have almost completely lost meaning among those they target.
American Eagle’s former president and the founder of P3 Executive Consulting, LLC, Susan McGalla understands that more than buzzwords, working women need applicable advice from professionals who have succeeded in the corporate world. Click on phx.corporate-ir.net.
Susan McGalla has led a storied career rising through the ranks of American Eagle Outfitters steering the clothing brand that would become vastly popular across the nation. She now uses her years as an executive to help like-minded and goal focused women find success within their careers as well.
When asked as to how she succeeded so well in a world often dominated by men, Susan McGalla credits her upbringing with a football coach father and two brothers who gave McGalla no extra slack for being a girl. From her childhood, McGalla learned to present herself and her ideas confidently to anyone regardless of gender while not dwelling on the increased difficulties of being a woman in corporate America. McGalla has said “My angle on this in my career was not to ‘break the glass ceiling,'” McGalla explains. “To make the point, I never carried a chip on my shoulder of what I should be entitled to as a woman or what prejudices existed.”
