Magazine Description

In this issue

Overlooked values Respect for women is ingrained into the Sri Lankan psyche, right? How, if that’s the case, can the high incidence of sexual harassment girls undergo in public transport be explained? Why do women who anonymously respond to surveys say family pressure keeps them from getting a job? Perhaps we aren’t the benign tribe we imagine ourselves to be. Sri Lankan women’s participation in the labour market is abysmally poor. The gap between men and women’s participation is the 14th widest in the world. This has implications for businesses, society and most critically for individual women who go without the economic and social empowerment work brings. It’s also in the interest of businesses that women are empowered. Sure they will be customers with new economic power. But it’s not for a frivolous gain. Women are just as capable as men when it comes to leadership, intelligence and drive. They will beat men on such qualities critical yet anaemic in business like empathy, honesty, fairness and compassion. Business leadership teams sometimes lack these qualities and values and loose touch with consumers, shareholders and other stakeholders. Often it takes a crisis to realise the folly.
