Trials and Triumphs of the Male Trailing Spouse

Male trailing spouses are becoming more and more prevalent in the corporate arena. Research shows that 20% of expatriate employees globally are female, many of whom relocate abroad with their husbands in supporting roles. Despite that many people view female breadwinner families as challenging and as not likely to succeed, especially abroad, studies show that this is not the case: expatriate families with male trailing spouses are some of the most successful global families. Companies that employ female expatriates are lucky to have them!

If you would like to learn more about the trials and triumphs of the male trailing spouse, here’s a chance for you to hear first-hand about the new trend not only in Singapore but around the region. Dr Yvonne McNulty from Expat Research has just completed a major study on male trailing spouses and invites you to a hands on session to learn more about how men successfully navigate the trailing spouse life. With a panel of experts that includes male trailing spouses, this is an opportunity not to be missed! Join us for a fun and insightful lunch and learn session.
