EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Women in Dual-Career Couples in Asia

Senior-level Dual-Career Couples (DCCs) are on the rise in Asia. While this trend is good for the talent pool, DCCs are faced with work-related challenges that could potentially have an adverse impact on each partner’s ability to remain engaged and productive in the workplace.
