Are women less confident than men?

Are women less confident than men?

Evidence shows that women are less self-assured than men—and that to succeed, confidence matters as much as competence.

In Malaysia, only 8.6% of directors of public listed firms are women. The government hopes this will increase to 30% by the year 2016 but the going seems to be slow.

Why is this so?

In this The Atlantic article, researchers Katty Kay and Claire Shipman contend that it's due to a lack of confidence in women. That given the same attributes and talents, a women will feel and act less confidently than a man, and this puts her at a significant disadvantage.

A growing body of evidence shows just how devastating this lack of confidence can be. Success, it turns out, correlates just as closely with confidence as it does with competence. No wonder that women, despite all our progress, are still woefully underrepresented at the highest levels. All of that is the bad news.

The article then presents some guidance on how women can overcome their own lack of self-confidence and assert themselves more in the workplace.
