The RIGHT TIME for WIG Perspectives
In 2021, the Singapore Government is conducting the Gender Equality Review that addresses a host of women’s issues to effect a societal mindset change. There is also much that can be learnt from policies that are already in practice in countries all over the world. Singapore corporations have also instituted progressive employment policies – in many places all the world – that can be shared here. Diplomats and corporate leaders will share best practices.
While COVID has imposed many challenges and exposed many vulnerabilities, according to media reports women have been especially hard hit globally. It is imperative that we take stock and take steps towards a gender balanced society to better handle future catastrophes.
WIGP has been initiated at an opportune time when women empowerment issues have been championed by the G20’s countries last year but yet again there is still a lot of ground to cover. According to the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap report it will take another 108 years to reach gender parity!
In 2019 there were only six (mainly European) countries that give women equal work rights as men according to the World Bank’s Women, Business and the Law report that measures gender discrimination in 187 countries. A typical economy gives women only three-quarters the rights of men. So we deliberate on 1st March on the ways to march forward.
When You Just Have to be There!
Virus or no Virus, the virtual reality is that your event must go on
We can help you organise, participate and attend conferences, exhibitions and MEET more people than ever on
As a result of the unprecedented Covid-19 outbreak many companies have had to readjust and re-calibrate their expectations and goals, and we are no exception to the fact.
Given that works predominantly on an online platform, most of our operations have not and will not be impacted too greatly. We intend to still promote and highlight different and unique markets in the world and expose them to the Singaporean market.
That being said, there are still restrictions to what we can accomplish on a web-based platform, while also having to adhere to the social distancing measures in Singapore.
