In many cultures, one can find that the compensation and advancement gaps are somewhat slowed due to a variety of reasons by women themselves i.e. aversion to risk; prioritizing family, etc. – do you find similar issues impacting such advancement for women as well, or what are some of the factors that influence these advancements in your part of the world.
