<ONLINE> International Symposium, Institute for Global Leadership (Dec 16, 2021)


“Challenges and Key Empowerment Strategies for Women Leaders in India and Indonesia” (Thursday, December 16, 2021)

Out of 156 countries, the rank of gender gap report for Indonesia is 101st, for Japan is 120th and for India is 140th (World Economic Forum, 2021), indicating there are many challenges to improve women’s participation in these countries. Women are facing many difficulties to embrace their identity as leaders and to gain acceptance as leaders by others. While many has addressed this issue, less people realize that the development of identity as leaders start early in life, where women learn to appreciate their identities as leaders and as caregivers (as a wife and/or a mother).  This symposium is going to present research findings in India and Indonesia related to challenges and key empowerment strategies for the development of women leaders in those two big countries, with many diversities within each country.  The role of family (especially a father), culture, education and mentor will be specifically discussed.
