Session with the theme: “Building an inclusive future: Be the change-makers”
“The reason why STEM field in women is not developing because of the fact that communication for women in this field is too weak. They are not interested in building symbols of women in the STEM field. They think STEM is unprofitable, lack of attractiveness and charming that are the instinct of women. The image of women scientists is often accompanied by dryness and boring life.
Therefore, it is necessary to build the image and personal brand for women working in the field of STEM to promote more and more women who are willing to commit and pioneer to change. The reality proves that the field many women participating will develop very well because women hold a lot of power in making life decisions. I myself have invested in technology for over 2 years, initially, I thought that I was not good at this field so I only invested financially for partners to do and then male partners to make products. They created products with full of technology but lacking the actual experience of the user, especially the way women use is completely different from men who like the technology. Shopping must be a woman, so I spent my time researching, exploring, experiencing, structuring products and identifying extremely interesting technology. If we know how to use the technology platform for every field, it will help us grow exponentially” – Speaker Nguyen Thu Huong said.
Women’s Forum Asia 2019 is also an opportunity for delegates to learn “great knowledge”, experience in business fields from international speakers and this is also a chance to exchange, connect business effectively with more than 1500 successful leaders from 70 countries around the world.
