In today’s culture where “I” matters most and our own self-interests has become king, are we really taking the time to peer through our little bubbles and comfort zones to understand the people around us? How far are we from being appropriately inclusive, be it noticeable or subtle, or is diversity and inclusion (D&I) just another checklist at the workplace and with friends?
Here’s why we should be concern:
This year’s D&I flagship event will showcase three short feature films tackling subjects on toxic work environments, discrimination of disability and ageism – all of which are relevant and is a primary concern to the workforce in Singapore. SCCA, will focus on the topic of ego-centrism, how such characteristics has taken root in our lives and the impact it has made to our society and the world.
Join us on 6th February 2020 at (venue tbc) as we unveil house conversations and bring forth “I” in real life inclusiveness.
