The path to success is not easy. And for women, that journey can be particularly challenging as we juggle our family life, career, business and our own personal development. More often than not, we would find ourselves questioning our actions, revisiting our doubts and planting seeds of discontent. We need to find the strength within and to work together to dispel any notions of uncertainty.
“No country can ever truly flourish if it stifles the potential of its women and deprives itself of the contributions of half of its citizens.” — Michelle Obama, Former First Lady of the United States of America
I agree wholeheartedly with the statement above. Throughout my many years in business and entrepreneurship, I had met many smart, capable women. While many have found success and continue to achieve great things, there are others who have yet to realize their potential. This is where WENA comes in. As one of the fastest growing networks for women entrepreneurs and business leaders in Malaysia, we want to ensure that our members are better equipped with skills and knowledge, may it be for business or professional career development. More than just organizing events and providing networking opportunities, WENA aspires to see more women contribute significantly to the country’s economy.
Indeed, it is my honour and a privilege to be at the helm of WENA, a position that would allow me to lead a team that is dedicated to build a highly supportive and engaging community for women in business and professionals. I look forward to put in place clear strategies that would effectively meet our vision of encouraging and empowering women to grow and develop their potential. I would like to see a more aggressive membership drive to further strengthen our numbers, resources and talent pool. The fees go directly towards planning and organizing events, workshops and other activities that would benefit our members.
WENA celebrates women. We celebrate women’s achievement in business and professionally. And we are here to nurture future leaders who would make positive contributions to the society and our beloved country. Join us now and be a part of WENA community.
