Dear FWA Members,


I hereby give notice for this year’s Financial Women’s Association General Meeting which will be held physically on Tuesday, 19 March 2024.  


The new Executive Committee slate standing for election will continue to strive to do their best of their abilities to empower women to achieve both their professional and personal goals to develop a better financial services Community by promoting education, advancement, and recognition of women, and encouraging young female leaders of tomorrow to advance in finance through mentoring. Finally, to contribute to social and community development for the
sustainable betterment of women.


FWA had a very busy and fulfilling 2023 with several events and our flagship Symposium. Key highlights in 2023 included 6 monthly events and an annual year end party which engaged more than 540 participants; 3 corporate membership events of which we had 48 corporate members by year end 2023 showing steady support and growth from our corporate members. Our flagship symposium helmed by our Strategic engagements pillar attracted more than 330 participants and engaging 28 champions through 4 panels sessions and 1 debate. The thought leadership approach of FWA Singapore for DEI practices and sharing by engaging more than 18 champions in dialogue over 3 champion breakfast sessions.

Mentoring is a cornerstone of FWA. Thanks to our unique matching approach, the outcomes of our initiative has grown from strength to strength over the years and in 2023 we were faced with a successful sign-up rate with a final selection of 41 mentees and 41 mentors from 30 financial institutions, and 3 in person events.


Staying connected with our members is key and our Linkedln following continues to grow with roughly 4k followers to date. To help improve our connectivity to members, in 2023 we embarked on adding a Whatsapp broadcast channel to socialize our activities.


2023 was a year of great achievement. Our annual offsite ensured that collectively as an Executive Committee we are aligned towards achieving the mission for FWA Singapore as we aim to reach more women in finance and thus achieving our goal to make a meaningful impact to women in Singapore.

FWA WEIMPACT DYNAMIC HUDDLE Panel Discussion: Neurodiversity in the Workplace

In collaboration with Uncommon Minds and hosted by Citi, the FWA Women Empowered Impact (WEimpact) pillar invites you to a panel discussion as an introduction to neurodiversity.  In this session you will learn more about learning differences such as ADHD, autism, and dyslexia.  In addition, the panel will discuss how you can understand and work better with neurodiverse individuals and be more inclusive in the workplace.  Lastly, we welcome our members to join us in an enriching discussion over an interactive Q&A segment.

 

Did you know? It is estimated that 15-20% of the global population is neurodiverse.  Learning differences are complex and varied.  Every individual is unique and their experiences, strengths and challenges, differs as well.  Neurodiversity is the idea that there is no one ‘right’ way of thinking or learning, and that these differences should not be viewed as deficits but rather be embraced as part of natural human diversity.

 

FWA WEImpact aims to foster diversity of thought and promote improved personal and professional lives by bringing our members health & wellness topics in women with awareness on mental, physical and emotional care across all aspects of life.  We hope that this panel discussion will bring to light that diversity is more than what meets the eye.

 

About Uncommon Minds:

 

Uncommon Minds is a grounds-up initiative that aims to inspire hope, break barriers and stereotypes, and celebrate the strengths of neurodiverse people with invisible learning differences such as autism, dyslexia, ADHD, dyspraxia. To learn more: www.uncommonminds.sg

Mobilising Capital & Finance To Accelerate Sustainability And Climate Actions

 

Light refreshments will be provided. FWA thanks CDL for their sponsorship of venue and light refreshments.

 

Driven by public and stakeholder pressure, sustainability has risen to the top of the business agenda for CEOs in all sectors.

 

Singapore held the pavilion for the second time at COP in 2023. The pavilion was themed 'Accelerating Collective Climate Action' and showcased various players collectively aimed at achieving net zero emissions by 2050 to build a climate-resilient future.

 

As a financial hub, Singapore will be instrumental in helping to mobilize capital to achieve the above goal. As shared by Ravi Menon, the blueprint 'Finance for Net Zero Action Plan' was launched by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) in partnership with the financial industry. It aims to mobilize finance to catalyze Asia’s net zero transition. This is to be done through either a blended finance approach or via carbon credits.

 

Our panellists will share their experiences, insights and perspectives across issues, challenges and trends relating to sustainability and climate actions:

  • Measuring impact, how about those areas which are beyond measurement
  • Are corporates reducing their commitment and does this signal negativity
  • Are you labelling or really tackling climate issues?
  • Is there still a Green premium?
  • The transition of banks to be key players in COP and decarbonisation
  • Technology that may be more scalable in accelerating sustainability efforts is not coming into Asia - how do we support their entry into the region
  • Phase out or phase down - we should be looking at growing alternative renewal resources for a long-term solution
  • Regulation and Policy changes, are Governments working closely with corporates to improve the implementation and to build an ecosystem.
  • Trading of carbon credit across countries
  • There is no perfect solution but we cannot simply kick the can down the road

 

Sign up now to find out how to Mobilise Capital and Finance to accelerate sustainability and climate actions.
