It's all in an idea…
SheShaped is the passion project of Amber Chook and Douglas Busacker. The two of them met in 2015 and quickly realized their mutual enthusiasm for personal growth and empowering others. Established in the spirit of collaboration and education, SheShaped aspires to create a global community that celebrates and empowers women from all industries. Through events, women and men connect with like-minded allies, share actionable advice, and seek novel solutions to crucial issues.
Amber Chook is the Public Relations Manager of SwissBorg Japan, a blockchain-powered wealth management platform established in Switzerland. In 2015, she founded TEDxRoppongi with the mission of encouraging social innovation. Through designing TED-like experiences, Amber embraced her passion of creating experiences that help people connect, communicate, and collaborate. Amber has since created empowering experiences for global women's initiatives: Girls20, a G20 style program to cultivate a new generation of female leaders and increase female labor force participation worldwide; Womenwill, a Google initiative to create economic opportunity for women everywhere and help transform ways of working to make workplace practices more inclusive; The Busy Woman Project, a fitness platform from Singapore to empower busy women living in Asia through mental, physical, and emotional health to lead more fulfilled lives; and, now, SheShaped, an undertaking aimed at creating a global community of collaboration that celebrates and empowers women from all industries.
