In this review paper, we aim to understand the gender biases faced by women while reaching their well-deserved positions at the senior level. The purpose of this study is to uncover the challenges faced by women to reach leadership positions. Our purpose is also to see the steps being taken by the organisations and the HR departments to overcome these challenges. The results of this paper reveal that women, like men, require mentors and leadership training in order to reach their goals. It was also seen that for women to grow in the organisation it is all the more important for the men to change their perceptions about women and look at their valuable contributions without biases. Thus a safe scope for experimentation, knowledge, learning and community cooperation is critical in leadership development programmes for women. The paper focusses only on the gender-related preconceptions and doesnt focus on other diversity challenges faced at leadership positions.

Keywords: Diversity, Gender, Leadership, Perception
