For every 100 men in leadership positions in Southeast Asia, only 46 are women (McKinsey Global Institute 2018).

Within the framework of the France-ASEAN Development Partnership, the first Women and Leadership for ASEAN training was organised virtually on 7-15 June 2021.

Implemented by Institut Français and Ecole Nationale d’Administration (ENA), 15 ASEAN women leaders exchanged ideas, best practices and experiences as women leaders. The training also brainstormed ideas to further advance women’s position in their respective organisations and countries.

One of the participants, Rosyana Dewi shared her concerns of the low number of women in leadership positions in Indonesia, ‘I hope there are more genderresponsive policies that can empower women in Indonesia’, she said.

Dewi currently works at the Indonesian Ministry of Cooperatives and SMEs and is actively supporting other women in her organisation, ‘I am a firm believer in the concept of women supporting women’, Dewi said.

‘I want to see more Indonesian women in leadership positions who contribute strategically to national economic growth’
