SCCA DECEMBER FIRST THURSDAY 2018
Unity in Diversity – The Business Case for Changing the Narrative
In collaboration with CMS, an early signatory of the Singapore Corporate Counsel Association (SCCA) Diversity and Inclusion Pledge, and InterAlia, we are delighted to invite you to an evening at the Straits Clan for our next First Thursday.
Going beyond a discussion of quotas, challenges, and statistics, our panel will share their experience, ideas, and initiatives for driving the diversity agenda both in their organisations and with their stakeholders.
From the need for minorities in leadership roles to the empowerment of both men and women to challenge stereotypes and conventional norms, the panelists will discuss the potential and business case for diversity and how we can all help move that needle.
