About the awards
The Top Women in Security ASEAN Region Awards form part of a global campaign by the Women in Security & Resilience Alliance (WISECRA).
This initiative is open to all ASEAN member countries and follows successful awards in 2022, 2021 and was launched with the Top Women in Security Awards held during 2020 in Singapore, Malaysia and Philippines.
As an ‘Industry Community’ orientated awards the feedback has been deep and meaningful. The awards ceremonies and the acceptance speeches from the Finalists is a testament to what the awards mean to participants and the value given for professional recognition and development.
