Event Details

The first ever White Paper on Singapore Women's Development was endorsed unanimously by the Parliament on 5 April 2022. To support the continuous progress of Singapore Women and advance our nation towards a fairer and more inclusive society, the White Paper outlined 25 action plans in five key areas: Equal opportunities in the workplace, recognition and support for caregivers, protection against violence and harm, other support measures for women and mindset shifts.

Join the panel of esteemed alumni speakers and moderator, Dr Intan, for a discussion on what this means for you and I - regardless of gender - and what we can do in our homes, workplaces and community to enable the women around us to be the best that they can be.
