What would happen if women go on a baby making strike? The idea of not having children seemed taboo, but the birth rate worldwide has fallen drastically over the past decade. Why and how has the trend come to this? 

In this talk, Nicole Yuen, the founder and CEO of the Women Workplace Index and the related Asia Women Web, will share her insights on the social factors that contribute to declining birth rates. She will also discuss how this phenomenon influences all of us in our society.

Join us to gain a deeper understanding about this social matter, and learn how to deal with this incredulous situation as a member of our social community.
