Overview

Women and leadership – the lack of women at the top, and what to do about it - is one of the hottest, most discussed topics of the year, both in Asia and internationally. In Hong Kong particularly, the SCMP (16 December 2010) revealed that while women make up over half of the labor force, 90% of board seats are filled by men.
For several reasons, some cultural and some practical (women are still – and will likely continue to be – the primary caretakers of children and family) when women do rise to leadership positions, it is often because they find a fertile ground and an innovative corporate environment that promotes a culture of diversity.
So what are the key decisions and support systems in a company that contribute to women’s leadership? Women Breaking Through Leadership tells stories of remarkable women in leadership positions in the South East Asia region and their views on which are the best personal (what should women be doing?) and corporate (what should companies be doing?) practices that promote women's leadership.
In the book, Stefania Lucchetti also discusses her views about women and leadership: women who have been able to thread the path of leadership have found ways to integrate their life. They have also been smart about creating around them an environment that supports them during those difficult years of early child rearing when they need to make an extra effort to balance personal and professional responsibilities. These women often don’t separate life and work in a chirurgical manner. All of them have a strong passion for what they do and how they do it, and at the same time all of them are able integrate their life and work in a particular way. All of them love what they do also because of the opportunities it gives them to influence the outside world.
