Diana Hopeson stated in a Graphic Showbiz report that because women are blessed with nurturing skills, she believes they can take on the role and do it better.
” I find it alarming that there are few women taking up the role of talent management in a field with so many potential career paths and notable sports for female success.
‘Women possess emotional intelligence and fundamental abilities such as self-awareness, self management, social awareness and relationship management needed to develop talents of young people and that is why I think we should work actively to change the narrative’ she said.
She also added women need to step up their game to take up these male-dominated roles, adding, she could not comprehend why women can’t be manning up these positions.
‘We won’t have women stepping up their capacity to perform talent management if we don’t change the perception that, it is preserve for males.
“Besides between perception and reality , there is a noticeable chasm. I can’t think of any reason why women shouldn’t equally represented in the space’ Diana Hopeson stressed.
