To work with business through designated women empowerment intervention for a more gender equality and equity workplace
Women are always the first to bear the brunt when an emergency happens. Especially those who work in factories. They play significant roles in the workplaces, in her family, in their communities. More bitterly, the rise and fall of her family is also a business distributed to the top in her priority. However, to balance all the roles and expectations above needs to weigh too many resources and skills than they ever had.
This dilemma is always invisible to others. Not to mention grasping these resources and skills has a strong and necessary connection to their career enhancement.
"The leaky pipeline" phenomena not only exist in large companies but also prevail in factories. According to the data provided by our cooperated factories in China, only 8.3% of the management in the apparel factories are female, less than 1% in electronics factories. These minorities need to work harder and learn more skills in order to obtain upward mobility career development opportunities. Much less the 70%, those who work in front of the assembly line in a factory has directly affected the efficiency of the enterprise/factory. There is evidence that the more soft skills female workers master, the more annual profits the enterprise gain.
In a case, 33% of female workers were linked to training on vocational soft skills in communication, decision making, and time management and the company's annual profit increased by 5% compared with previous years. 10+ companies/supply chain factories/international brands generate strategies according to their employees' career development system and turn to ProF for customizing their own female empowerment programme.
