Organizations need equal participation by women in the workforce

Most Read

Making it big in the professional world is no cakewalk – more so for women. However, today, women are breaking the glass ceiling and changing the status quo in everything that they do.

While women have always been role models, the impact of their work now extends beyond their companies. They have demonstrated that it is not about anyone’s gender but only talent and competence which makes a person stand out. With a tough-as-nails attitude, they balance the demands of both personal and professional lives impeccably. And it is not just hearsay.

There is research to show that organizations that have more women in the senior positions tend to profit more, are more socially responsible, and offer better customer experience – among numerous other benefits. The secret sauce here that women possess includes a diverse mix of ingredients.

Let us look at some behavioral and operational habits that come naturally to women and therefore, make them assets to any organization.


Women possess the strength to take risks, learn from failure and deal with negative comments and yet fight to undertake course correction no matter how tough the challenge is. In the corporate world, this quality is inspiring for others and denotes one of the most important tenets of a leader.


The world of business can be unpredictable and stressful. This is where women possess the inherent trait of perseverance through any setback. They not only handle the challenges with utmost patience but also face any biases en route with determination.


Vision, perseverance, empathy, passion, etc., are traits that are not the assets of male leaders alone. The next generation of women leaders is at the forefront of empowering those who wish to take on the business world – irrespective of gender. Women, therefore, have a crucial role in redefining the future with a work culture that embraces equality, equity, and the importance of acknowledging hard work irrespective of gender.


Adaptability is one of the most essential traits in a leader. There are unique demands in every work environment and job position. As these evolve, we need adaptable leaders, who can weather changes, and turn adversities into opportunities. This is where women stand out in terms of being highly adaptable.

Grit and tenacity

Perseverance and passion to achieve goals are integral to business success. Grittiness is a woman’s inherent trait and comes out in the face of adversity. After all, women are known to face challenges in the workplace, irrespective of whether they are talented or better than the best. This is where women demonstrate tenacity. The extra responsibilities that they need to shoulder do not indicate that they are delicate or distracted but rather that they are tenacious.


Empathy has emerged as a key interpersonal skill in a leader – and women possess this skill in ample quantities. Empathy helps customers and employees feel heard and as a result, they become more open to feedback and adapting. The result is a collaborative and open work environment where employees are not just productive but also happy.

The world of business is rapidly turning into a digital-first ecosystem. This is where women entrepreneurs are bringing in new ideas and innovations. They are driven by self-belief and the thought that there is always a way and are emerging as a force to reckon with in anything they do. Undoubtedly, the future wave of business leadership is going to be led by women and yet be a gender-neutral one, for the larger good of the nation and economy.

COP28 UAE: SANY Promotes Green Manufacturing Transformation, Takes Concrete Action to Tackle Climate Challenges

CHANGSHA, China, Nov. 23, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- SANY Group, ("SANY"), a globally leading enterprise of the high-end equipment manufacturing industry, is accentuating advancing sustainable development and the green manufacturing transformation of the heavy machinery industry, ahead of the COP28 UAE, that is set to take place from November 30 to December 12 in Dubai. The theme of the 13-day program this year is "Actionism," calling for people to rise to meet the climate change challenges.

The COP28 will center on four major paradigm shifts – namely accelerating the transition from fossil fuels, agreeing on climate finance shifts, emphasizing the role of people and nature in climate action, and ensuring the summit is an inclusive event that women, indigenous people, local communities, youth, countries and more can all be a part of.

SANY is responding actively and positively to the summit's agenda with concrete actions to promote the transformation of green manufacturing, bringing sustainable solutions to the industries of mining, construction, wind power, and more.

Taking green actions to build a sustainable future

SANY is vigorously expanding the use of green energy (renewables such as solar and wind) in production processes to reduce the reliance on traditional energy sources, lower carbon emissions, and support climate change actions. It has adopted multiple initiatives, especially in accelerating the R&D and application of wind energy, hydrogen, and electrification solutions, and achieved significant results.

SANY's subsidiary SANY Renewable Energy has been investing in and constructing wind farms to boost the proportion of wind power in the energy structure, through intelligent upgrades in manufacturing and creating intelligent workshops. By doing this, SANY Renewable Energy has reduced the overall unit energy consumption and carbon emissions by 15 percent compared to pre-upgrade.

In 2022, SANY has added more than 3,000 energy metering connections. SANY built China's first intelligent mixing station park and invested 3.22 million yuan in photovoltaic construction that will produce 900,000 kWh of power annually. The park will cut 887 tons of carbon emission, 242 tons of dust emissions, 26.7 tons of sulfide, and 13.4 tons of nitric oxide to achieve synergetic development of intelligent manufacturing and environmental conservation.

A total of 11 subsidiaries of SANY have installed photovoltaic power generation equipment, with clean energy usage amounting to 16.013 million kWh.

SANY is actively engaged in the R&D of hydrogen fuel cell technology to improve battery efficiency, reduce cost, and boost the production and storage capabilities, while expanding the applications of hydrogen energy.

Innovation-driven climate action tackles industry bottlenecks

Through establishing a green supply chain, SANY adopts renewable materials and environmentally friendly technologies to reduce resource waste and improve the sustainability of the supply chain.

SANY continues to improve the long-term mechanism for pollution prevention and control, strengthen the control of waste emissions including water, gas, and other hazardous substances, and be cautious of business and operation actions that could damage the ecological environment. In 2022, the group's wastewater and gas emissions met the standard rate of 100 percent, with a 100 percent compliance rate for hazardous waste disposal.

The group is also pushing for using environment-friendly materials to minimize pollution, so that the carbon reduction throughout the product life cycle also includes materials. In 2022, its VOCs emission density was 0.0011 tons per million revenue, a 39.71 percent reduction from the base year.

Meanwhile, the continuous upgrade of production techniques and processes, promotion of energy conservation technologies, and advancement of low-carbon technology development are not only playing key roles in improving production efficiency, but also reducing carbon footprint and aims to reach the "dual-carbon" goals.

Calling for the public's participation

SANY has been carrying out training programs and campaigns centered on environmental protection for employees, while further raising community engagement in terms of green, low-carbon, community-friendly, and educational innovation agendas. In 2022, the company employees completed 687.4 hours of volunteer work, and SANY invested 9.75 million yuan in the year to support 15 public welfare projects.

SANY Construction Industry is leading the green technology application in urban infrastructure construction to accelerate the sustainable development of cities and building intelligent cities, green transportation systems, and energy-conserving architectures to reduce energy consumption, improving urban environment quality and people's livelihoods.

In terms of biodiversity and sustainable development, SANY emphasizes the conservation of soil, ocean, crops, and animals to create a better future, and advocates a circular economy to decrease the waste of resources.

In the context of increasingly severe issues of global climate change, SANY, as a leader in the green industry, is committed to promoting sustainable development and actively joining global efforts to address climate change through comprehensive initiatives such as green supply chains, green energy, and carbon emission reduction.
