Women in business and management: Gaining momentum in Asia and the Pacific

The report brings together data collected from the ILO global company survey in 2013 on gender diversity in the workplace, specific to the Asia-Pacific region, and also incorporates other latest data to provide overview of the status of women in business and management.

The evidence is showing that gender diversity is good for business, and women increasingly represent an important source of talent, the data clearly illustrates a lack of women in top management positions and a concentration of women in certain types of management and occupations. Some progress has been made but much remains to be done in terms of gender equality in the workplace. The report serves to highlight the key role of employers' organizations in supporting business and advocating for gender equality and women's equal opportunity employment in the workplace and provides an overview of key actions for business.
