Is a glass ceiling holding women back in Singapore?

Join us and Guest of Honor - Madam Halimah Yacob for an open dialogue & networking event

A recent study* found that 63% of Singapore respondents believed there was a glass ceiling holding women back in the workplace – the strongest perception of this barrier amongst APAC countries.

What has held Asian women back from progressing in their careers and ascent to the C-Suite? And why should this matter for Singapore businesses and the greater economy?

Join us with our Guest of Honor and Singapore’s first female Speaker of Parliament - Madam Halimah Yacob. A night of engaging dialogue awaits as we look through Singapore’s glass ceiling to answer these questions.

Hear perspectives from:
  • Mdm Halimah Yacob, Speaker of Parliament
  • Dr Chin Wei-Li, Audrey Marie, Chairman, Keppel REIT
  • Aw Kah Peng, GM - Global Commercial Strategy Development, Shell Eastern Petroleum
  • Genevieve Lim, Head of APAC Compensation and Benefits, Facebook
  • Melvyn Low, Head of ASEAN and Singapore, Treasury and Trade Solutions, Citibank
  • Andrew Staples, Director, Southeast Asia, The Economist Corporate Network

In the spirit of diversity we encourage you to bring one member of the opposite sex along with you to this event. Places are limited so register online before Friday 14 October, 2016 to ensure your entry.
