CELEBRATING WOMANHOOD ON EQUAL NOTE
As nations around the world celebrate International Women’s Day on March 8, with the theme #EachforEqual, the number of companies that have had women in a leadership role continues to expand. But the list is still relatively short, and even when women have made it to power, they have rarely led for a long time. Globally women at leadership position are very less and only 4.9 per cent of Fortune 500 companies have women at leadership position.
Indeed, women are getting stronger and more engaged in careers, with age no bar. Some are taking greater risks, often to make a greater impact. Some have just stepped into the waters, while some have made it big through their hard work and determination. Celebrating the power of womanhood, BioSpectrum has profiled leaders from Asia Pacific, entrepreneurs, and family business heiress in the life sciences industry, who are yet to achieve a milestone of reaching the top position, but are already adding to the company in ways that enrich it.
