Asia Women Circle (AWC), founded by Sarah Chen and Abir Abdul Rahim, both professional women themselves, is a women empowerment platform that aims to address the two key issues of women dropping out of the workforce, and also the lack of women in senior management positions.
Established in 2015, AWC aims to further promote quality discourse via The Circle Dialogues which are unique to the cultural background that exists in Malaysia. AWC aims to empower, educate and enable women to define their success. Additionally, the Circle also attempts to
reach out to males via their programmes.
Today, AWC comprises of over 20 working committee members and has more than 5,000 #leanincommunity members in Malaysia and a network of more than 300,000 across the Asia region.
This is what we are at Asia Women Circle @ LeanIn.Org – a multi-racial Malaysian circle of women from different industries & backgrounds championing women supporting each other for success.
