Entrepreneurial Leadership Forum: 'Women in Science and Technology' was a huge success! With the goal to help young people realize their fullest potential, as well as their career possibilities and entrepreneurial opportunities, the forum served as a platform for STEM students to engage with 3 of Thailand's most sought-after and prominent women in tech:
- Ms. Ajarin Pattanapanchai, Permanent Secretary of Ministry of Digital Economy and Society, whose experience includes mega projects in the development of the petroleum & petrochemical, chemical, and energy sectors at Office of the Board of Investment
- Ms. Patama Chantaruck, Vice President for Indochina Expansion and Managing Director of IBM Thailand, after 23 years in various global, regional, and country-level leadership positions at Microsoft, including General Manager of Worldwide Software Asset Management and Compliance
- Ms. Nareerat Saetiew, Co-founder and Business Development Manager of InsightEra, a social media and marketing analytics startup that started off as a class project
Our guests shared their stories, turning points, growth, life lessons, and passion for their work. Participants then reflected on their own purpose, their own potential, and roles of technology in Thailand’s aged and soon-to-be super-aged society. Finally, our guests ran their very own own workshops, allowing young people to closely work with and learn from a key figure in the public sector, a world-renowned CEO from the private sector, and a young role model from Thailand's growing yet still exclusive startup scene. It is an honor to have partnered with King Monkut's University of Technology Thonburi on this project!
