The ten nations of Asean together make up the world’s seventh-largest economy, and The ten nations of Asean together make up the world’s seventh-largest economy, and include some of the fastest-growing economies in the world. However, the region faces the headwinds of rising geopolitical challenges, climate change and environmental degradation, and job disruption from automation, AI and other technologies. 

We believe that women across Asia-Pacific can provide the innovative views, perspectives and daring leadership needed to address today’s challenges and envision a more sustainable, equitable and inclusive future. We believe women’s leadership is key not only to increasing gender equality but also to unlocking Asia’s tremendous economic and technological potential.

The first ever Women’s Forum Singapore will take place on 12-14 September 2018 at Raffles City Convention Center. It will convene leaders and high-potential talents from business, government, civil society and other sectors to discuss and explore best practices and proposals to create impact. The goal is to express a clear, action-oriented vision and gender-based analysis of issues that we are confronted with today.
