Addressing the Talent Shortage in China and India: Leveraging Women in the Workforce

During a period of high unemployment rates around the world, pockets of talent shortages remain due to skills mismatches and an inability to find qualified candidates for certain positions. There is a global talent shortage for high-skilled workers, and this key inefficiency represents one of today’s greatest human capital challenges in Asian developing countries such as India and China. Furthermore, women are largely underutilized in these labor markets. Leveraging women in the workforce is essential to resolve this talent shortage and promote both social and economic development in these countries.
