FWA Weaves-In – A Networking Evening with the CFA Society Singapore, Wed, 15 Jan, 2020, 6:30 - 9:30 p.m. @ 1927 Sofitel SO

 

FWA welcomes 2020 and is pleased to kick-off the year with our first quarterly weave-in session! FWA is pleased to partner with the CFA Society Singapore for a networking session to exchange fresh ideas, engage in tete-a-tetes and explore solutions to solve the world’s financial problems. Well, perhaps a tall order, but a get together of intellectual minds certainly makes for interesting discussion and discovery; not least about what more we can do to promote better representation of women in leadership positions in Finance and in addition to middle, back office and sales & marketing roles, the further growth of women investors, fund managers and technology leaders within financial organisations.

 

Founded in September 1987, the CFA Society Singapore is a professional society that brings together practitioners in the investment and fund management industry in Singapore. Its principal objective is to promote and uphold professional standards and ethical practice in financial analysis and investment management in Singapore.

In modern society, there has been an increased emphasis on sustainability and uplifting the quality of life especially when it comes to health. As modern women, we all aspire to advance gracefully.

 

FWA presents a pre- International Women’s Day special interactive session on Women’s Health Through the Years. We invite a panel of doctors with different fields of expertise to talk about steps to take to make our journey in life a healthy, mobile and enjoyable one.

 

Through a life course approach, acknowledging the unique needs of women across the community, the session serves to address health issues which may be experienced by women of different ages. Panellists will discuss various topics from across the life-course, which could include breast cancer, osteoporosis, cataract, pregnancy, osteoarthritis, gynaecological health issues, menopause/post menopause, glaucoma, wrinkles, just to mention a few.

 

What should women look out for? What are the key takeaways for your 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s & 90s?

 

There are so many things you can do today to make your tomorrows fulfilling. Take charge and start your journey to good health today! Be aware!
