Acer named one of World’s Top Companies for Women

In the Philippines, Sue Ong-Lim is the managing director of Acer, leading a workforce of 139 employees.

Acer has been named one of the World’s Top Companies for Women in 2023, marking the second consecutive year of being recognized on the Forbes list. With this, Acer climbed from 291 to 259 and ranked 12th in the Semiconductors, Electronics, Electrical Engineering, Technology Hardware & Equipment category.

Forbes surveyed 70,000 women across 37 territories in partnership with Statista, and the evaluation criteria included workplace practices, gender pay equity, handling of discrimination, and equal opportunities.

The recognition reflects Acer’s ongoing commitment to fostering an inclusive work environment.

She started in the company as a Sales Manager in 2009 until she was named Managing Director this year.

As a leader, Ong-Lim describes herself as business-driven, but she said she relates personally to Acer’s employers, partners, and customers.

“Acer has 34.7% and 39% market share of consumer and gaming notebooks in the Philippines, respectively. This means that more than a third of Filipino consumers who have a laptop own an Acer. The company has decades of building and strengthening brand equity through consistent sales, marketing, and customer service efforts. I see that as our edge over our competitors,” said Ong-Lim.

She attributes her success as a leader to her vision and thirst for learning. She has realized that even those at the top of their game should always continue having a learner’s mindset.

Ong-Lim said her gender doesn’t hinder her being a leader in a male-dominated industry. “I believe in equality and inclusivity and that people, regardless of gender, are what make an organization special and successful,” she said.
