  • Communication Skills: Effective communication is essential for leadership, including the ability to articulate ideas clearly, listen actively, and engage with diverse stakeholders. Women leaders should be adept communicators who can convey messages convincingly and foster collaboration. #Past participation in speaker events on topics of support and furtherance of women in STEM, Education and Business
  • Diversity and Inclusion: Diversity in leadership brings different perspectives and enhances decision-making.

  • Integrity and Ethics: Ethical conduct, honesty, and integrity are fundamental for effective leadership. Have demonstrated a commitment to ethical principles and lead by example in upholding organizational values.
  • Results and Performance: Ultimately, the ability to deliver results and drive performance is a key criterion for selecting any leader, regardless of gender. Women leaders should have a track record of achieving goals, driving growth, and delivering value to the organization. It's important to recognize that selecting women leaders based solely on their gender was not sufficient. Instead, focusing on these criteria ensures that women leaders are chosen based on their qualifications, skills, and abilities to effectively lead and contribute to the success of organizations, communities, economies and the larger socio-economic ecosystem. We hope that features like the SpeakIn Asia Dialogues help in bringing forward thought leaders and thereby creating opportunities for mentorship, leadership development, and advancement for other women seeking growth.
