    Event Details

    In the Global Gender Gap Report 2020 compiled by the World Economic Forum, Singapore improved 13 notches to rank 54th out of 153 countries. More companies in Singapore now realise the importance of gender diversity in the workplace – more women are included on boards and in leadership positions.

    Although these are steps in the right direction, more work needs to be done. What can female employers or employees do to ensure that women are well-represented and included? What types of policies or practices should be put in place to ensure that women are respected and are equal in the workplace?

    Join us for a panel discussion, moderated by Dr Intan Azura Mokhtar (Science ’98, Public Policy ’08), as we discuss Gender Diversity and Inclusion in the Workforce.

    Guest-of-Honour and Panellist:

    • Mrs Josephine Teo (Arts and Social Sciences '90), Minister for Manpower and Second Minister for Home Affairs


    • Ms Lyn Lee (Arts and Social Sciences '89), Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer, Royal Dutch Shell
