After the successful inaugural debate in 2018, the SCCA Annual Diversity is back! This year, the SCCA Annual Diversity Debate coincides with the 200th anniversary of the landing of Sir Stamford Raffles on 29 January 1819. When Raffles arrived, the policy to maintaining racial harmony was to sequester members of their own race into enclaves hence giving rise to Chinatown, Little India and Kampong Glam. This allowed Raffles to govern our city state with minimal inter-racial conflict. Should modern business leaders follow in Raffles footsteps to divide and rule or fully integrate employees?
Therefore, we are excited to introduce the topic this year.
The SCCA Annual Diversity Debate will be a fun, casual and entertaining event with some inherent value to in-house counsel and other business leaders by asking tough questions about diversity and inclusion in their own organisations.
Join us for an exciting evening of canapes and wine as eight senior counsel debate pertinent diversity and inclusion topics!
Do note, the debate is held under Chatham House Rule:
"When a meeting, or part thereof, is held under the Chatham House Rule, participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed."
The debate is also an opportunity for SCCA to raise funds for charity. This year, we have selected to raise funds for an inclusion charity launched by the Prime Minister of Singapore called OnePeople.sg. We highly encourage our guests to give generously.
