President's Message

Dear Members of FWA,

 

Thank you all for another successful Annual General Meeting on 24th March 2022. I am extremely proud and grateful to be the incoming president and take this opportunity to thank the past presidents for their vision and dedication and the retired executive members for their time and work in 2021. 

 

This team with each individual's contribution gives me the strength to lead and I am grateful for togetherness and fellowship whilst working towards our common dream. I am heartened that we have worked very hard towards creating a platform for our members to share and collaborate to inspire diversity of thought in all aspects of our lives.

 

I warmly welcome the new 2022 Executive Committee a continuation of our programme for the year. Please refer to https://www.fwasg.org/AboutUs/Committee.aspx to see who we are.  

 

2021 saw a close of an extremely busy and successful year for us as we celebrated our 20th anniversary and our first ever Male and Female Champions’ Symposium with over 700 attendees. 

 

In 2022 FWA has embarked on several events such as International Women’s Day celebrations, Fintech subjects, mental wellness and future ready topics. Our mentoring pillar, a pillar that obtained recognition from MSF Singapore through SCWO’s 2019 program, Seeds of Change for funding in content development, will break another record year of a class of close to 50 mentees.  

 

Engagement to our members is enhanced through our social media presence. Our LinkedIn page as of 2022 has gathered more than 3,100 followers’ to-date.

  

2022 will be a year, of taking stock with overall assessment of our governance and IT efficiencies to support operational improvements. 

 

Finally, we are positive that we will have another strong 4th quarter 2022 finish and celebrate together with a dynamic year-end party bash.

 

 

Grishma Kewada

President
