The Financial Women’s Association of Singapore is a champion of gender diversity & inclusion (D&I) in the workplace. We engage individuals and organisations to recognize the contribution women have been making to the economy, the multiple hats women wear as care-givers and workers, and the importance of unbiased, fair and flexible work practices that support the advancement of women in their careers.
As part of our journey of promoting D&I, the objective of FWA’s male champion’s initiative is to engage men: men who understand the demands of work and family that women face and are supportive of their pursuit of success on both fronts.
FWA’s Male Champions were announced on March 2015 at FWA’s annual celebration of International Women’s Day. Our Male Champions are men in senior leadership positions who champion and support women seeking success on both the professional and personal fronts, can effect change in their organisations and be firm supporters of gender D&I in their workplaces and society at large.
Our Male Champions commit to the following:
- To support and promote gender diversity in their workplace through events in partnership with FWA e.g. lunchtime talks and networking events. This could be by way of being a host, a speaker, a guest and engaging with our members at such events
- To provide voluntary mentorship via the FWA mentoring program
- To consider corporate sponsorship of FWA activities that promote gender diversity and the development of female talent
We are honoured and delighted to have the following accomplished men share our journey of continuous engagement and empowerment of women in achieving greater success in the workplace and in their personal lives. Your support, guidance and mentorship is very appreciated as we continue to engage greater numbers of men to support FWA’s work and mission.
