WOM­EN­have to make many sac­ri­fices to achieve ca­reer suc­cess, a new white pa­per re­veals.

The pa­per, LongWay­totheTop, authored by Mel­bourne fi­nan­cial plan­ner Char­maine Cur­tain, finds Aus­tralian women have jumped many hur­dles and now hold some of the most pow­er­ful po­si­tions in the coun­try as politi­cians and busi­ness ex­ec­u­tives.

But the white pa­per finds women have had to sac­ri­fice time, money and per­sonal re­la­tion­ships to achieve their ca­reer goals.

It in­cludes 69 per cent of women sac­ri­fic­ing an as­pect of their per­sonal life to achieve suc­cess. About 58 per cent of women say the chal­lenges they face is be­cause of work­place peer pres­sure.
