President's Message

Dear colleagues and friends,

Although women represent about half of the world’s talent, our talents are not enlisted in equal numbers. Our challenge is to build our own capacity for   leadership, put ourselves forth as capable candidates for leadership, and educate the organizations seeking leaders to connect with us as a viable talent pool.

At TIAW, our Women’s Leadership Network is bringing forth some excellent tools to help you develop and market your leadership potential.

First, you can work on building capacity by participating in the Global Women’s Leadership Summit, which is expected to be the world’s largest forum for professional women in the world. GWALS is a collaboration of the world’s pre-eminent leaders to forward the advancement of women on a global scale.

Making a Difference in Solving Global Challenges

You will agree with me that investment in women is equal to poverty reduction in all spheres of life.When women thrive the society benefits and succeeding generations are given a better start in life as once put by Kofi Annan. Among these women are women with disabilities who are making changes in solving global challenges. In their strive to solve global issues, women struggle with many burdensome systems but yet conquer them.Every woman, in one way or another, craves to do something about critical areas of life such as health care, education, corruptions, politics, conflict and all human rights issues. They tackle these issues in their own small ways and that reflects in the community in which they are in.
