Women in Business in the Philippines

Women are accepted in business circles but are not expected to act in a domineering way with male colleagues.

Women managers are expected to be highly competent and assert their authority in a professional but restrained manner. Any aggressive or confrontational acts from women colleagues are likely to be viewed as a challenge to the machismo of any male co-workers.

Expatriate female managers should expect to encounter little, if any, gender bias.
