The Asia Foundation

[et_pb_section bb_built=”1″][et_pb_row][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.0.75″ background_layout=”light” border_style=”solid”]
What does Asia Foundation do?
Their programs assist Indonesian women’s organizations to provide women with the skills and confidence to effectively present their priorities and incorporate them into community development plans that meet both women’s and men’s needs. Simultaneously, they work with government officials and prominent community and religious leaders to encourage their support for women’s participation in public decision-making.
For the 2009 elections, their programs have trained nearly 500 women to run effective election campaigns. These trainings included communication strategies, leadership skills, and education on substantive issues to contribute to their success once elected.
ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT
Their program in Aceh provides microloans to a network of 42 women’s groups with over 1,500 women members. Through their local partner, the Center for the Development of Women’s Resources, poor Acehnese women receive microloans and the technical training necessary to manage their funds and start productive small businesses. Loan recipients also gain vital skills and confidence to participate in the public arena, enabling them to help make decisions and solve community problems. Foundation programs also provide computers and training to build the capacity of local women’s groups to better track their lending and increase transparency.

#WONDERTECH is an initiative that aims to inspire and support female talents to progress towards senior management positions in tech industry. Not only to those who have been in the industry, #WONDERTECH also aims to equally inspire a new generation of women to pursue studies in tech, computer science, and related fields as a way to solve difficult problems by designing unique solutions. #WONDERTECHis initiated by executives from several leading tech companies in Indonesia, including Dayu Dara (Go-Jek), Khailee Ng (500 Startups), Sandhya Devanathan (Facebook) and Florian Holm (Lazada). It is important to highlight that this initiative remains neutral with no affiliation to any single entity.
 
The reason behind #WONDERTECH We see today that female middle- and senior-managers as well as C-level executives and entrepreneurs are greatly absent from the tech community. This lack of gender diversity means that essentially half of the potential talent pool is lost. We strongly believe that everyone should have access to the same opportunities when making career choices.
