Did you know that in Delta Thailand, 93% of our production workforce and 70% of our supply chain management workforce are women? It is also a known fact in first world countries that many domestic helpers are women who come from developing countries in search of better income to provide for the families.
However, a 2019 study by S&P Global Market Intelligence also found that public companies with women as CEOs or CFOs are often more profitable and have better stock price performance than many of the companies with men in these positions.
All these facts prove that women can do anything and are no less capable than men in leading a family, team or company. Yet despite their personal sacrifices and real contributions to the global economy, women still have to bear the brunt of many social stigmas due to superstitious beliefs and outdated yet deep-rooted reactionary "traditions".
