WeDu, the NGO for women’s advancement, is organising a “Women Who Lead in Tech” panel discussion at the Social Innovation Lab at the National University of Management on 29 June!
The event is part of the Women’s Leadership Academy for Women in Tech programme. As part of the programme, 20 technology major undergraduates were given the resources to develop their self-esteem, leadership skills and foresight, to maximise their potential in their future tech-related careers. For example, participants gained insight on the future of technology in Cambodia from the CEO of Smart Axiata, Thomas Hundt, and trained their communication skills with Kosal Sin, a public speaking coach from PUC.
The panelists will be the assistant director of Applications at Chipmong Bank, founder of First Womentech Asia and the head of ABA Bank’s Digital Product Development Department, with the co-founder of Wapatoa as panel facilitator. Attendees of the event can learn about overcoming obstacles in work and life, grabbing opportunities, and advancing in tech careers, from these experienced leaders.
The event is open to all, although women studying or working in the technology field will be given priority admission. Interested high schoolers are also welcome to register.
