On October 20, 2021, Nitikar Nith, an associate in Tilleke & Gibbins’ Cambodia office, participated in the Women and Leadership Roundtable, organized by the American Chamber of Commerce in Cambodia (AmCham).
The panel discussion, which was facilitated by a moderator from AmCham, featured six female leaders from different sectors to share their perspectives on how women can advance in their careers and excel in leadership roles in businesses or organizations. The roundtable also aimed to increase the visibility of accomplished local female role models for others in the business world.
The event was extremely well received, with many watching the roundtable via live stream and significant media coverage following in the subsequent days. As reported in the Khmer Times, the panelists stressed the importance of engagement and self-empowerment in forging a successful career and being a leader to others in the field. The Cambodia Investment Review echoed these sentiments about empowerment and noted that the speakers also emphasized passion and contribution to society as guiding elements in the career-building process.
The roundtable was streamed live, and a recording is available on the AmCham Facebook page.
