Unleashing New Waves of Women Leaders

Image 2020 10 26 T07 22 10

According to ManpowerGroup, women make up more than 50% of the global workforce, but less than 25% of women have senior leadership roles. Dr Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, Chief Talent Scientist, ManpowerGroup shared: “There are three popular explanations for the clear under-representation of women in management, namely: (1) they are not capable; (2) they are not interested; (3) they are both interested and capable but unable to break the glass-ceiling: an invisible career barrier, based on prejudiced stereotypes, that prevents women from accessing the ranks of power.” What should be done to overcome this gender barrier for better organisational performance?

Key Takeaways:

  • Find out why companies and organisations should promote female leaders

  • Identify the obstacles to closing the gender gaps and programs to overcome them

  • Actions to be done to unleash the power of women leadership

Speakers & Moderator

"What do global leaders see as the obstacles to closing the gender gaps and what is needed to overcome them? How has COVID-19 impacted the position of women socially and professionally? There is an undeniable competitive advantage of Diversity & Inclusion that contributes to greater organisational performance. Beyond the pandemic, organisations and leaders need to be more courageous and resilient in embedding a culture of conscious inclusion, in order for women to step up and play the role they have to in our economy." - Ms. Carine Rolland, People & Culture Director, Asia Pacific & Middle East, ManpowerGroup.

"Organisations and companies should know why they need to promote female leaders, what challenges await and how to help women realise their fullest potential as they deserve equal opportunities with men. Answering these questions will help improve organisational performance." - Ms. Uyen Ho, Director, Global Public Affairs, Intel Products Vietnam & Malaysia.

"Leaders should identify unconscious biases against women leadership and programs to overcome them. They also need to apply long-term systemic changes such as paternity leave, board-level quotas and diversity requirements in cross-functional teams. And last but not least, training on the individual level plays an important role - women taking responsibility for supporting other women." - Ms. Thai Van Linh - Investor, Mentor, and Mother.
