The fellows share their own experiences and thoughts on the relationship between gender and leadership in Asia today. They consider the proportion of women in key business, government, education, culture, and creative leadership positions in the region as well as speak about their vision for the future. In an increasingly globalized world, what role does equality for women and minorities play? How does Asia lead in the field of gender equality and social justice?
