Australian Women in Global Business: Motivations and Barriers to Internationalisation
Women in Global Business (WIGB), a joint State, Territory and Australian Government initiative, has been supporting and building a network for Australia’s international businesswomen since December 2010. In 2012 they conducted their inaugural survey exploring the experiences of Australia’s businesswomen in the international arena. The survey revealed a highly diverse community of women working in, and often running, businesses in a wide range of locations. WIGB gained invaluable insights into the motivations and opportunities prompting such internationalisation and the challenges involved.
The excitement generated by the resultant report – Australia’s Underestimated Resource: Women Doing Business Globally – prompted WIGB to commit to conducting annual surveys through to 2016. Through these surveys WIGB aim to boost awareness of the issues facing Australia’s international businesswomen and their many successes.
WIGB are inviting women to participate in the second annual survey by completing a questionnaire which should only take around 20 minutes to complete.
One lucky survey participant will win an elegant tailor-made Coral nightgown donated by Tatyana Ariyan Design (valued at approximately $650). To go into the draw you need to provide your contact details on completion of the survey (In this instance, your contact details will not be linked to the data collected.)
