The Financial Women’s Association of Singapore (FWA), in collaboration with Admired Leadership, is pleased to bring you another exciting discussion on the FWA Exchange:  “Admired Leadership: You really can learn to be a better leader ”.

 

Over the past 30 years, Admired Leadership has studied more than 12,000 leaders to uncover the foundational routines and behaviours of leadership excellence.

What are the best practices that can make us all better leaders?

 

We are delighted to have Krisztina Anspach, Managing Partner, Admired Leadership to share findings and exchange ideas on:

  • Why should anyone follow you?
  • Style matters – concrete advice for a soft, complex challenge!
  • The secret of inspiring others.

 

We look forward to seeing you at the session as we uncover the simple secrets of Admired Leaders!

 

BETTER LEADERS MAKE PEOPLE BETTER!

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

 

FWA presents a pre- International Women’s Day special interactive session on Women’s Health Though 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!

Viewpoints from FWA Champions: Measuring, Tracking and Promoting Workplace Gender Inclusion, Tuesday, 02 March 2021, 12.15-1.30pm

Gender equality is one of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. The UN SDG are a call to action for people worldwide to address the five critical areas of importance by 2030: people, planet, prosperity, peace, and partnership.

 

Even before the Covid-19 pandemic, progress in gender equality has been slow. With the Covid-19 pandemic, the gap has widened further. The UN found that the coronavirus could wipe out 25 years of increasing gender equality. Increased care burdens because of lock-downs have taken women out of the workforce as women remain primary caregivers for the young and old. Unpaid care work widens the savings gap between men and women. The ripple effect of being out of the workforce is that women face greater risk of inadequate savings at retirement, which also impacts their mental well-being, economic progress and financial independence.

 

How do we help women stay in the workplace as Covid-19 continues to rage on? And if women are able to stay in the workforce, how do we ensure that workplaces are fair and transparent and support women to thrive?

 

To discuss this issue, we have our FWA Champions Julia Raiskin (Citi), Sheela Parakkal (Prudential Singapore), Anshul Sidher (ANZ) and Bruno Guilloton (AXA Investment Managers) in panel, moderated by Low Chin Loo (FWA/EDGE Certification)
