Women today are being urged to keep pushing the boundaries and keep making our voices heard. The latest percentage of women on ASX 200 boards is 29.7% as of 31 July 2019, consequently. In a male-dominated business society, women must work together to stand out as leaders.
That mean we need to empower women to see them thrive. Empowerment of women isn’t just good for women but for everyone. A report by McKinsey & Co shows women on the board leads to better decision made. Women often face great challenges when building networks and embracing ‘traditional’ leadership qualities, mentoring has proven even more important.
