“To unite Malaysian Women Entrepreneurs through the process of nurturing their skills and by helping them realise their dreams”


“To provide the leadership and inspiration to act as a conduit to the transformation of the role of women in business into a dynamic force”

NAWEM was founded on the firm belief that the full realisation of the human potential is limited only by the acquisition of skill and knowledge and the availability of information and opportunities.

NAWEM is mindful of the importance of human resource development. It will therefore be in the forefront of initiatives to harness and develop under-utilised human resources, particularly women, by enhancing their skills and knowledge, and through the dissemination of information. In the widening of business opportunities, NAWEM members will ensure a consistent focus on quality, productivity and performance.

As the platform for women entrepreneurs, NAWEM is also the leadership that will influence and shape policies which will benefit women in business in particular and the nation in general.

Conscious of our ever changing and demanding environment, NAWEM is the inspiration to stimulate innovation and creativity in the development of business strategies that will be sensitive to local values and customer needs.

NAWEM also recognises the need for cohesiveness in forging business relationships. To this end NAWEM will be the bridge to transcend differences and to the nurturing of co-operation and mutually satisfying business environment within and outside our national boundaries.

By the year 2020, NAWEM members will be acknowledged not only as catalysts to the growth, development and enhancement of women in business but also as a motivating force, providing leadership and support to all Malaysians in the realisation of their full potential whilst upholding the values of mutual respect and caring.
