Women in Business: Classrooms to Boardrooms
For a greater representation for women in business, we need a greater female representation in classrooms. That is the path for change to happen – from classrooms to boardrooms.
Harvard Business School reported having 44% females in their campus this year with 1 to 2 mothers in each section. It’s interesting to note that they first accepted women into MBA programs in 1963.
That’s the progress made at HBS in 6 decades. Slow but promising.
Did you know that there are only 26 women CEOs at Fortune 500 companies (Source: Forbes).
For a greater change across boardrooms, we need more women students, professors, deans and research scholars.
Global Supply Chain Under Pressure
Global supply chains will continue to remain under pressure through 2022. Trade outlook will continue to be impacted by the prolonged war in Ukraine and Covid-19 restrictions in China. Traffic jams have increased significantly in Chinese ports due to the zero-Covid policy.
The war has disrupted container traffic in the North Sea. The congestion is not to easy any time soon.
As per reports, 11% goods are currently waiting on container ships globally, most of them in China. There may be a significant shift in global trade flows as buyers, especially from Europe, look for alternatives to Russian commodities and goods.
