The International Science and Technology and Innovation Centre (ISTIC) for South-South Cooperation under the Auspices of UNESCO is inviting participants to the International Forum on Harnessing Women’s Talents in Science, Technology and Innovation which will be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on 25-26 May 2015.
The main objective of the forum is to share perspectives in devising strategies to address the imbalance of women participation at the leadership level in science, technology and engineering in the business and government sectors. Relative to this, we are seeking assistance in nominating candidate(s) to participate in the forum. The participant must possess the following minimum criteria:
- Holding a senior position in the organization involved in women’s affairs
- Has good command of the English language (both oral and written)
- Must be in good health
The organizers will provide hotel accommodation and local hospitality for the duration of the forum to selected international participants. Since the organizers will not provide travel grants to the participants, international airfare will be shouldered by the sending agency.
