21ST CENTURY IS ABOUT WISDOM, NOT MUSCLES

Jack Ma, the Founder and Chairman of Alibaba Group, was one of the speakers on recently closed World Economic Forum in Davos. He shared his thoughts on the policies of Alibaba Corporation, future development of technology and businesses, as well as gender equality in the companies.

He described the century that we are living in as a century of wisdom. He stated that time when muscles were most appreciated on labour markets is behind us. Through examples of a company whose net worth is estimated to over 20 billion dollars, he explained the advantages of a gender equality.

“Today 49% of our employees are women and Close to 37% of senior managers are women. Women, they sacrifice more. If they love something and believe in it, they will do it wholeheartedly. I think that one of the secret reasons for Alibaba’s success is that we have so many women among our colleagues. And we feel so proud.” In Alibaba they do not consider women as other gender, they consider them as capable employees. “If you try to say- Now we have too many men, so we have to put women inside, that’s a recipe for a disaster.” Ma concluded.
