The concept of "Womenomics", first introduced in Japan eight years ago, aims to increase the female workforce participation rate through diversity-promoting policies from the government and corporates. To enhance female representation at all levels, the government encourages the advancement of female workforce to address the shrinking workforce, while the corporates accommodate employees for more family-friendly policies.
Yet, with only less than 10% of CEOs in the world are females, what are the progress we have made thus far? What helps promoting more opportunities to female leaders? What are the major concerns that refrain females from staying in the workforce? More importantly, what are the plausible solutions?
