The second year of the Global Ambassadors Program kicks off in Singapore on Tuesday, May 7, with a notable group of Global Ambassadors, mentees and a larger assembly of women leaders convening to explore the journey from poverty to prominence for women in Southeast Asia.

Participants will engage in one-on-one mentoring sessions and attend plenary sessions throughout the week. The forum will conclude with a large Public Forum on Thursday, May 9, a lively exchange on the business case for empowering women to develop as business professionals and leaders in the region.

“I want to learn to develop the courage to dream and the conviction to carry it through, to discover things about myself I may not know.”

– Radziah Radzi, Malaysia

The Singapore forum follows three successful 2012 Global Ambassadors Program forums in Haiti, South Africa and India.
