International Women’s Day is celebrated around the world for its authenticity of initiatives, ideas, creativity and a reason to bring achievements of women from all walks of life together. Women regardless of status, divisions, ethnicity, culture, economy or politics are still working very hard for gender equality. In some countries, this is a fight for deliverance. 49.5% of the world’s population are made up of women and about 1.1 billion women today are challenging the status quo. They’re redefining womanhood, and they’re doing so against the odds but these odds are sometimes women themselves!

At the Singapore Corporate Counsel Association’s 2019 WILL event, we will bring together an all-star group of women who are paying it forward and "doing it for the next girl" to help make a bigger impact within our communities. The program will focus on real life stories and provide actionable conversations that will make a difference for everyone!

1:00pm - Movie Screening, SOUFRA

Soufra follows the unlikely and wildly inspirational story of intrepid social entrepreneur, Mariam Shaar – a generational refugee who has spent her entire life in the Burj El Barajneh refugee camp just south of Beirut, Lebanon. The film follows Mariam as she sets out against all odds to change her fate by launching a successful catering company, “Soufra,” and then expand it into a food truck business with a diverse team of fellow refugee woman who now share this camp as their home.

This is an innate skill within women and this session will cover how to hone in on these key skills.
