@pinkattitudeevolution, in partnership with Cultural IQ, will be launching a national research study and accompanying action-plan on unlocking the potential of a growing South Asian women labour force. We’re looking for partners to join us on this new syndicate study. It is now, not tomorrow that we must create a support system to uplift women to their full potential.
