The business world has been growing exponentially since the dawn of time. The first business deals started off as early in the 8th century BC in India where firms called shreni independently entered into contracts and owned properties which also made for them to sue and be sued. Certain things in business never changed. From then onwards the world of trade was made known and taken into practice by numerous entities across the globe and by 1790, an Industrial Revolution was afoot. From thereon after, the business empire continued to progress and evolve with new trends, era and cycle every 50 years (Allen et. al 2017). Many claims have been put forward as to achieving gender equality and although it is visible that there is a finer representation of females in the economic, healthcare and political sectors in many parts of the world, we are still far from total equality. Gender inequality is the Mr. Hyde in the professional world and a majority of the receiving side comprises females. Whilst countries are doing an excellent job of maximizing female’s economic potential, it is also vital to inaugurate precise interventions and policies immersed with gender equality. Moreover, this study will utilize a number of approaches to determine the amount of sample size needed, the target population, the data collection procedures and once the necessary responses related to both dependent and independent variables are obtained through a structured questionnaire, a set of statistical approaches will be used to assess the data obtained. The sample size decided for this study approximated at 400-the number of respondents and all of whom will be between 20 to 60 age group comprising both men and women serving in the logistics sector within Klang Valley. And finally the implications of the results obtained are discussed.
