Happy International Women’s Day, from all of us here at HRM Asia!

We would like to dedicate this to all the inspiring women in our lives – and in our workplace.

There’s no doubt the important role that women play both at home and at work. So let’s take this opportunity to appreciate their contributions by thanking and wishing them a Happy International Women’s Day.

While we continue to strive to become a more gender equal society, there are still issues and room for progress. And it’s important to hear the views of women on what needs to be improved – especially in the workplace where gender inequality, pay gap and a lack of opportunities for leadership positions still exist.

HRM Asia spoke to some of the women leaders to find out their thoughts about the challenges and opportunities for women at work as well as their advice for women who aspire to be leaders.
