Singapore, Southeast Asia’s most advanced economy, is falling behind its less developed peers when it comes to women breaking the glass ceiling at companies.
The island nation is ranked near the bottom on female representation on company boards in the Asia-Pacific region, behind only South Korea and Japan, according to a Korn Ferry study of 2014 annual reports in 10 economies. Women made up 7.7 percent of the boards of the largest publicly listed companies in Singapore, 2.6 percent in South Korea and 3.3 percent in Japan, the executive search and organizational advisory firm said in a press statement.
