With the changing times, more and more women leaders are emerging every day. But even now, the journey of these women leaders are not without obstacles. On a daily basis, they tackle gender stereotype, gender biasness while working twice as hard to make their mark on a male-dominant society.
WOW Bangladesh’s One-on-One aims to have leading women from two different industries share their personal experiences of struggles and compromises they faced during their journey to success.
For this session of One-to-One, our guests are, Sonia Bashir Kabir (Founder of SBK Tech Ventures and SBK Foundation), former Managing Director for Microsoft Bangladesh, Myanmar, Nepal, Bhutan and Laos, and Country Director of Dell Bangladesh. She is also the Vice-Chairman of UN Technology Bank.
