71% of female millennials want to work outside their home country during their career. Yet a recent report from PwC found that women count for only 20% of current international assignees. Organisations around the world are currently challenged with a lack of women in leadership positions and are concerned about the financial and competitive toll this could result in. Talent diversity is now widely acknowledged as both a business challenge and an opportunity but in reality there are still a number of barriers and disconnects between an employee’s expectations and what is actually happening in practice.
What are these barriers and how can organisations practically change this?
In this session, our speakers from PwC will present the findings from PwC’s latest research, followed by a panel discussion exploring both the corporate and individual assignee perspectives.
