Asian women become more powerful at workplace: EY

WOMEN entrepreneurs have become more powerful in Asia and Pacific region while balance between family and career remain the biggest challenges for women at workplace, EY found in its annual Entrepreneurial Winning Women program.

“A total 43 women entrepreneurs have participated in EWW since we rolled out the program in Asia Pacific area,” said Jennifer Xie, China Champion, EY EWW Asia-Pacific. “They have the potential to generate an additional US$13.9 billion revenue and 29,319 new jobs in the region in the next three years.”

Consensus was reached among the 15 women entrepreneurs selected by the program this year that companies need to make merger and acquisition to make breakthroughs in their businesses.

Overseas acquisition is critical in expanding global footprint among market disruptions.

Meanwhile, women entrepreneurs need focus on strategic priorities and delegate operational and administrative responsibilities as they maintain work-life balance while drive the business growth, EY said.

Five Chinese entrepreneurs, mainly from high technology companies, joined the program this year.

The year-long program offered customized training program for the women entrepreneurs to acquire up-to-date knowledge, expand network, and polish business skills.
