A Culture Not Easily Bucked

I think the issue of a testosterone-driven, greedy leadership culture on Wall Street mitigates against anyone from rising to the top and easily bucking the dominant culture.

For women to crack glass ceilings of male leadership, an accomplishment in and of itself, and then be expected to also change an institutional culture and business model in the short run is a big task.

But without question more women leaders, I believe, does provide less bravado, egotists, and cowboy capitalism and more focused and thoughtful leadership, which is desperately needed on Wall Street and in board rooms.
