YSEALI Women’s Leadership Programme

Oct 18, 2020

A wonderful morning at the Kampong Bolkiah Community Development Centre for YSEALI Brunei’s Women Leadership programme. I was part of the mentorship team sharing insights and experiences with an amazing group of bright young women. These initiatives are so valuable for creating opportunities for young people and I can’t wait to see what they will go on to achieve. Thank you so much Nazurah Noor and the whole team for putting it together and inviting me to be a part of it.

The YSEALI Virtual Youth Program on Women’s Leadership ran from 1-18 October 2020 and included virtual workshops, mentorship and networking activities. Featured speakers and mentors from Brunei, Singapore and Malaysia and was sponsored by the US Embassy in Bandar Seri Begawan and supported by the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports 

Launched in 2013, the Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative (YSEALI) is the United States (US) government’s signature programme to strengthen leadership development and networking in Southeast Asia. YSEALI Women’s Leadership Academy (WLA) annually gathers women leaders from ASEAN to promote building economic capacity through international best practices.
