Disruptive Asia | Women at the Cutting-Edge

In an era of strategic competition, why do women continue to be under-represented in tech sectors? How can countries at the cutting edge of technology benefit from an enhanced female workforce and what are some of the region’s best practices to include women in STEM?

Considering the current global tech race, where nations compete for investment, knowledge, and innovation, technological skills are both a competitive advantage and a strong geopolitical asset. Often, supply can’t meet demand, as is the case with semiconductor chips and the healthcare workforce shortage crisis. Addressing the underrepresentation of women in STEM education and career and increasing the talent pool is therefore crucial to Asia’s ability to reach its full economic potential.

Join Liyana Fauzi, Lead Product Manager of GovTech, Jung Sun Kim, President of the International Network of Women Engineers and Scientists (INWES) and Professor at Dongseo University, and Kylie Walker, CEO of the Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering, for a discussion on the educational, organizational, and cultural inequalities of women in STEM and how to address them.
