Building A Great Place to Work For All:
The Untapped Power of Gender Diversity in Asia

In a summary of recent research, Catalyst (2018) reported that in well-managed diverse and inclusive workplaces, the presence of women in the workforce, leadership and board positions makes for better business results.
