IN THE NEWS What can companies do when expats face gender discrimination? A new survey suggests businesses are ill-equipped to help international assignees, says Professor Benjamin Bader. The public discussion on gender discrimination has, quite rightly, generated enormous momentum around the globe. And the topic of discrimination against women on international work assignments is also receiving more attention.

The number of female assignees is significantly lower than men, and those who are on assignments face challenges because of their gender in many host countries.
