Ms Braema Mathiaparanam (Mathi), President of MARUAH, a human rights organisation in Singapore, has been selected for the prestigious CSCLeaders programme taking place in the UK from 23-30 March 2014.
CSCLeaders is a leadership programme which assembles exceptional senior leaders from across the Commonwealth to tackle challenges that businesses, governments and society face today and build the global relationships needed by the leaders of tomorrow.
Braema will join over 100 other global leaders from public, private and NGO sectors across the Commonwealth to find innovative and practical solutions to this year’s challenge: “How do you get societal – as well as economic – value out of technological innovation?” She will also be presented to HRH The Princess Royal at a reception for CSCLeaders at Buckingham Palace.
After two days in London hearing from experts on the challenge, Braema will travel across the city on a three-day study tour to meet leaders in the city working on this challenge on a daily basis.
Following the study tour, CSCLeaders will finish with two days at University of Oxford where the group will present their ideas for solutions to the challenge to a panel of experts who could help turn them into reality.
Braema will continue this learning when she attends Part Two of the CSCLeaders programme later this year, either in Singapore, Toronto, Lagos or Delhi.
The CSCLeadership programme is partly sponsored by a few companies such BP.
Braema said:”The CSCLeaders programme picks senior leaders from 53 countries and it’s an honour to be selected to take part in this prestigious study tour. I look forward to learning from the leaders around me and from the programme on how we can address certain fundamental issues impacting on society.”
