Creating an environment where talent can thrive and rise to the top is critical in achieving fully productive organisations and governments. Despite significant advances over recent decades throughout the world,gender equality and women’s leadership still lags in Asia. Women are still a significantly untapped resource. Societal pressures, cultural norms and structural barriers must be shifted to enable the advancement of women and societies.
As the leading public policy school in the region, the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore is addressing this challenge by providing women and men across Asia and the Pacific with knowledge, practical skills, support and networks to thrive in public leadership roles.
This unique three-day workshop will build the capacity of leaders who are influencing social, economic and political change in Asia. The programme focuses on developing personal expertise in core skills and on challenging structures that are hampering gender equality.

- Persuasive communication
