Women in Brazil, Russia, India, and China (BRIC) are ambitious, educated, and talented. But they also deal with family “pulls” and workplace “pushes” that impede their career advancement.
As the first woman to be appointed deputy minister for railways of the Russian Federation (RF) in 2001, Anna Belova is a role model for women in her country. Prior to her role at the RF, she held several top management positions in large Russian and multinational companies. She currently serves on the boards of numerous state-owned and private companies.
