A report from PwC Australia examines why fewer women relocate overseas as part of a work assignment.

The report notes that just one in four expatriate workers are females, despite 70 percent saying that they would like to work abroad.

It suggests that the reasons for this include family commitments; concerns about a possible negative impact on career progression; and a lack of role models in the new country. It suggests also that employers consider female staff to be less likely to accept an overseas posting.

The recommends employers make changes to support female employees who wish to be posted overseas.
