Five years ago, we started talking about how the workplace had gone global and the value of building a global career. We focused predominately on women. Why? Because our research and our own lives had shown that women were the ones most likely to excel overseas and most likely to benefit from doing it, in terms of raises and promotions. They were also the ones least likely to actually raise their hand and think they could succeed. So, in 2007, we began our quest to spread the word, debunk the myths and provide women around the world with the confidence that they too could get ahead by going abroad – and return home to keep reaping the benefits too.
