Developing the Next Generation of

Asian Female Leaders in Tech

Sara Cheng

Chief Executive Officer of Fuji Xerox Singapore

Through the years, we are seeing more women in non-traditional industries rising up to become top management. Today, many are starting their own businesses. 

The success in recent years is not necessarily due to gender parity. We just need to give equal opportunities for all genders.

One such example is Sara Cheng, CEO of Fuji Xerox Singapore. Being a CEO of a multinational tech company is a big responsibility and a tough job. But being an Asian woman CEO dominating the tech industry, is solid proof that gender and cultural background does not hinder her path to becoming a successful leader. 

What do women need to prepare in order to survive the business and tech industries? Are women more confident now than the last decades?
