Watsons conducted a survey named “Women’s Confidence Survey in Asia” with the goal of finding what kind of support women need to level up their confidence and become a better version of themselves.

The findings however showed a sad reality with almost half of all women in Asia being not confident about themselves at work and even in life.

The study conducted involved over 3,100 women aged 20-29 from six countries: Mainland China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand who rated their confidence levels

Four major findings of ‘Women’s Confidence Survey in Asia’ are:

  • Almost 50% of Asian women feel unconfident
  • Almost 50% do not feel satisfied with their career development
  • Over 70% think it’s a challenge to balance the two roles of work and family
  • Top supports women need are mentoring, seminars on stress management & career success

They also answered the query of what could help boost their confidence which reveals that staying healthy inside out can do wonders to their confidence as well as gaining recognition from coworkers in terms of work.

  2. Indonesia
  3. Philippines
