|Sizzlescience: Building SPACE|
The U.S. Embassy would extend the opportunity to AMCHAM members to engage with Malaysia’s rising startup community. The Malaysian organization Sizzlescience, which is a participant of the U.S. Department of State’s Global Innovation through Science and Technology’s partnership, is seeking executives of American companies to advise start up founders for a period of 2-4 months.
There are many challenges that women face when getting into the working environment and when returning to it. A good number of these challenges are often unspoken or unheard of. As part of AMCHAM’s Women’s Week, a virtual discussion forum was held on the topic of the journey from girls to leaders.
