Working in Japan: Lessons from Women Expatriates

Many firms commonly place expatriate women in positions abroad, yet know little about the women's job adjustment and performance. The authors have studied in depth the factors that help and hinder foreign women in one particularly difficult environment -- Japan -- and found that, while women can be successful and bring some advantages to the assignment, they face special challenges. Based on the findings from their study, the authors suggest how firms can increase the effectiveness of foreign women in assignments abroad.
