The training workshop has the following objectives:
- To engage participants on developing their own strength and talents;
- To enhance participants’ knowledge, skills and attitudes regarding the environment of the workplace; and

The workshop is organised in view of the need to develop the capacities of female scientists and technologists and equip them with the requisite knowledge, skills and attitudes that can promote them to be in positions of influence within the organisations. This is vital particularly for those who have the qualifications, talents and potential to become leaders and later be members of the boardroom.
