Women in modern times are surpassing social and cultural barriers, making tremendous contributions to the advancement of business and the community. While many are rising and taking up pivotal roles in the increasingly dynamic engineering profession, breaking through unique challenges and emerging as successful executive leaders in this arena remains a challenge. Women are often under-represented in senior management roles and while exciting advances are being made in this area, organisations must continue to proactively address this through the provision of opportunities, supportive networks and programs which recognise the value of female leadership to business success. Within this context, women in engineering must also actively refine their management skills, resilience and ability to drive and influence change in order to steer technical excellence and business performances through an era of unsurpassed competition and transformation across engineering-oriented sectors. The Women in Engineering - Leadership Forum Asia 2013 is an interactive and exciting event bringing together emerging and current female leaders to network and share inspiring leadership experiences, discuss key priorities and challenges confronting women in related fields.
