“ Allegra Antinori says China has been one of the most difficult


regions for herself and her sisters to do business on account of their gender. “It is a challenging country. With vision, time, and patience,


we are trying to build up.” The Chinese-Filipino Pow family is one that looks to make


the most of its female talents. Philippines-based HS Pow Construction and Development


Corporation was founded in 1985 by Harrison Pow, who was soon married and working alongside his wife, who became finance vice president. The couple wasted no time in grooming their daughter,


Harly Pow, to join the ranks, and Harly says she was always encouraged to imagine a career with the family firm in her future. “I did not feel my family was very traditional compared to my


other classmates,” she says. “The majority of the parents at my school owned businesses


or were managing their respective family businesses that were passed on to them, so we were exposed to the business world at an early age. “For some of my female classmates, it was clear to them


that it was their male siblings who would take on the family business eventually.” She says on a positive note, it gave other young women more


flexibility in their careers—“They could be free to choose what they wanted to study in college—and it did not have to be business, finance, or entrepreneurship related. “In my experience, ever since I was young I was somehow


trained and groomed that someday I would be interested in our business. In the summertime, I would work in the family business part time—encoding data in the accounting department, helping organise salaries for the employees, joining my dad’s meetings—simple tasks. But still some involvement.”

I knew that my long-term plan was to join the family business—and I believe I made a good decision


Harly, a marketing and business


development specialist, worked at a large pharmaceutical company for four years after she left university, until her father asked her to return to HS Pow to assist them with a new arm of the business: real estate and property development. “I wanted to be exposed in a


different industry, learn business processes and systems outside of the family business and build my own network,” she says. “But I knew that my long-term plan


was to join the family business—and I believe I made a good decision as there are significant opportunities in real estate development. We hope we will be able to positively impact the built environment in the Philippines through our projects.” Harly’s younger twin brothers—


John and Jeremy, an architect and a civil engineer respectively, also work for HS Pow, while her youngest brother, Timothy is still at school taking up human resources and organisational development. She maintains she was never treated differently from them growing up, and the only family member who will most likely be excluded from working in the business are those who marry into the family.
