FWA & National Australia Bank Celebrate IWD: PRESS FOR PROGRESS - TAKING ACTION TOGETHER - 8 March 2018, 12-2pm

Embracing collective action, FWA IWD 2018 seeks to PRESS FOR PROGRESS – TAKING ACTION TOGETHER

In 2017, the FWA IWD event successfully featured the ground-breaking pledge by our Male Champions to target 30% of women in senior leadership roles in Singapore by 2020.

Once again, FWA considers the IWD theme for the year and makes it relevant to our members – female and male members in the financial services industry.

Women comprise one half of the world’s population and talent pool, yet gender parity is over 200 years away (World Economic Forum 2017 Global Gender Gap Report). Some of us feel that the pace of progress, with more men and women taking action together, should be faster. There is no better time than now to press forward and progress gender parity and inclusion.

Gender Parity cuts across the economic, education, health and political arenas. Empirical studies have shown that improving global gender parity could increase global GDP.

In the financial services industry, press for progress continues for gender pay equality, fair promotion of women and women representation in senior leadership roles.

What further progress are we pressing for? How can we engage more men and women to care? What can we do together?

This event shall highlight how Singapore, in terms of gender equality, compares to the rest of the world and how the latest data is analysed and prioritised to take appropriate action. The panellists will explore why gender gap issues persist, the initiatives that are working and how we can collectively build alliances to further empower women in the workplace.

Gender Parity will take time and it will certainly happen quicker by all of us Taking Action Together!
