The Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Singapore presents:

CPA S’pore Powwow: The Shifting Power Balance: Is Gender the Issue?

 

CPA Singapore Powwow

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Description: 

Despite global support for the fundamental rights of women and men to participate equally in decision-making, women are still poorly represented at the higher levels of decision-making in both public and private sectors. The 21st century corporate world needs to recognise that the optimisation of women’s talents will boost business performance. 

The topic will focus on the economic importance of women – how they are becoming central to labour market solutions to the challenges of an ageing workforce, falling birth rates and skill shortages. And what can be done for women to fulfill their potential. 

The forum brings together a panel of distinguished leaders to exchange views on the topic and share their ideas with the business community.
