WOMEN'S EMPOWERMENT ADVOCATE

While most regions of the world continue to face challenges in increasing women’s representation at all levels in the workplace, Asia is projected to have the lowest representation of women in management positions in 2025. In a region with so many highly educated women, how can we have so many Tiger mothers and so few Tiger women?
— Marie Claire Lim Moore, on her TEDxWanChai talk titled 'Why Asia Needs More Tiger Women'
