Foreword: Diversity Matters
At Alexander Mann Solutions we believe that “people are the foundation for success”.
We work with our clients to build solutions that span the globe – covering areas from workforce planning to recruitment, development and internal mobility. When we state that people are the foundation for success, we mean all employees and potential employees, not just some. We know the approach that organisations take to diversity and inclusion has an extraordinary effect on the whole culture.
We’ve seen significant impact on organisations that support managers and employees in maintaining an open and inclusive mind-set. We share this passion with the team at everywoman and we are very excited about our partnership, focusing on gender diversity.
This report – the first of its kind in Asia Pacific – reflects on growing interest in the female talent pipeline in this rapidly-growing region.
With companies across Asia Pacific seeking to gain competitive advantage and to secure the best talent in the face of upcoming shortages, female middle managers are central to long-term business success.

Alexander Mann Solutions
everywoman is a membership organisation that is focused on driving change for the advancement of women in business. We are in our 15th year of working with corporations to challenge and change the mind-sets of their business leaders. Why? Because although young women enter the workplace in equal numbers to men, most organisations experience a high drop-out of female talent. This loss becomes more pronounced the further up the organisation you go.
There is a high cost associated with attrition and a more diverse workforce brings many benefits, the best being increased profitability. It has been well documented that companies with three or more female board directors experience better financial performance. This is why we have formed a dynamic partnership with Alexander Mann Solutions, harnessing our complementary areas of excellence to help companies retain and develop future leaders within their own female talent pipeline.
We are now working with a global client base, and supporting a global community of women through our online learning and development platform the everywomanNetwork. We are delighted to be working with Alexander Mann Solutions to bring some focused gender diversity thought leadership to key Asia Pacific countries as we continue grow the community of women and the organisations that attract, retain and develop them across the region.
