Launch: The Executive Network

We’ve heard your call.
The Executive Network is finally launched!

The Executive Network is an exclusive membership for executive women leaders in Malaysia and beyond. The Executive Network is purported to provide a safe space for networking, relationship building and capacity development. In conjunction of the launch of The Executive Network, we are hosting a conversation, “Community-Building for Social Impact” with a group of community-builders and a diverse set of speakers to share their experience, perspective and ideas.

“Sense of belonging is important. The challenges and actions required to create an impact in the society and environment is a collective effort. We are the company we keep – both good and bad. Not discriminating against but, providing necessary support could open the door for so many wonderful things.”
