Enabling the Next Generation of Women Leaders

In collaboration with the U.S. Embassy in Malaysia, AMCHAM organized a presentation on the subject of Enabling the Next Generation of Women Leaders in the Economy, a program part of the American speaker series.

The presenter, Greta Schettler, founder and CEO of Equal Up Strategies, provided attendees with a very insightful and interactive session.

While focussing more on the private sector, Ms. Schettler emphasized on the importance of enabling women to rise in leadership roles in a realistic manner, taking into account  organizations’ internal and external strategies within an American and Asian context.

She encouraged the audience to participate and detail their experiences and initiatives taken by their organizations along with the challenges faced by women in working up the leadership pipeline and just coping with the job itself. She also provided ideas and solutions that could be taken to decrease barriers and encourage trying.
