Recent years, more and more women enter top management positions and become effective leaders. Equal opportunities, affirmative action and anti-discrimination policies open new opportunities for female leaders to apply their knowledge and skills to the organizational context. Tilted groups offer more opportunities for coalition building and collective action that turn policy hopes and goals into policy realities. The presence of more women in top management also seems to be a positive influence encouraging male leaders to be more inclusive in managing their committees. Since women leaders on average are more inclusive and participatory than men, the overall impact of more women leaders and managers is to narrow the difference a bit between men and women chairs on this measure. On the other hand, this situation creates pressure for many African-American women who try to meet social expectations and “be “150% as good” just to break even with her white male counterparts” (Goldsmith 2007). Critics admit that feelings of guilt deprives many African-American women a chance to find a good job and choose their life path. It means that many African-American women pick a career path which does not meet their inclinations or interests but proposes opportunities for career development and leadership. In America, many African-American women leaders ‘suffer’ from historical burden of slavery and false images of role models for other women.
