Well, this is a very interesting study, as it provides us with interesting findings, supporting the need for empowering gender equality in businesses.

That’s the key to success, because it allows us to be more creative, productive and efficient at every project. So, please, dear men-driven companies, do not underestimate your women colleagues and you will be surprised by the results!
