Live Online Chat: Women at Work - Breaking through Asia's Glass Ceiling
Economic growth in Asia and the Pacific will only translate into more and better jobs for women when legislative, economic, and social reforms are introduced.
In this discussion, we ask the questions:
- What can be done to make more jobs available to women across Asia and the Pacific?
- How can education reduce the gender gap?
- Are gender divisions in domestic labor hampering women from succeeding in the workplace?
- How can governments tap women’s potential for employment without having them leave their homes?
