With the globalization and growth of world economic markets, a strong workforce is paramount to business success. Organizations cannot achieve global reach unless they intend to tackle issues regarding equality in the workplace. In a time when sustainability and corporate responsibility are the norm, organizations value the creation of an egalitarian workplace. This critical scholarly resource voices issues and challenges faced by women and provides guidance for organizations in developing strategic initiatives to involve women in decision-making and improve women’s wellbeing in the workplace. It explores macro (socio-economic) and micro-level (organizational) women’s issues including occupational segregation, gender pay gap, diversity management, and socio-cultural roles attached to women. For executives, managers, executive board members, human resources professionals, policymakers, business practitioners, academicians, researchers, corporate professionals, and students.
