Women at Workplace

This is what is lacking to make Women Succeed at workplace ?

  9. Why to let them drop out of workforce and then design programs to bring her back ?
  10. How many companies are open to recruit women who took a career break for couple of years ?
  11. Why the likes of Apple, Facebook , Tech Giants are choosing to pay to Freeze their eggs instead of signaling that Parenting duties aren’t a roadblock to advancement in Women’s Career ? What If these tech giants choose to spend $20K in providing child care facilities, right infrsstrucutre for Talented Women who want to become young Parent  and not delay Parenting until their 40s or 50s ?
  12. Do Women in organizations find adequate sponsorship for getting promotion, raises ?
