The Asialink Conversations are a leading Track II initiative that brings together influential participants from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) as well as Australia and the host nation, to address political, social and economic issues of common concern.
The 2015 Asialink Conversations was held in Singapore on December 9-10 in collaboration with the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy and the Centre for ASEAN Regionalism at the University of Malaya. The Conversations brought together more than 40 regional leaders from across business, government, academia, media and civil society in Southeast Asia and Australia to discuss the issue of women in leadership.
The Conversations also aimed to identify the challenges for women in attaining leadership in public life across all sectors, encourage them to discuss the new and innovative ways to empower themselves and future generations.
The 2015 Asialink Conversations was sponsored by The University of Melbourne and the Myer Foundation.
Conceived in 2002, the Asialink Conversations help create new and strengthened networks of leaders in Southeast Asia and Australia, and contribute to future planning in a changing global landscape.
The Asialink Conversations is invitation only.
