Event Details


Join us on Wednesday, September 22, 2021, 12 noon to 2pm for the AmCham Women Elevate Symposium: Women at the Heart of Recovery for a discussion on the empowerment of women as the world prevails against COVID-19.

How are women faring in the workplace as we begin the slow process of economic recovery following COVID-19 disruptions? The incremental progress that women were making in the workplace prior to the pandemic have largely been wiped out. According to McKinsey, in response to COVID-19, more women than men are now considering leaving the workforce or downsizing their careers particularly working mothers and women in senior management positions.

In September 2020, Singapore launched Conversations on Women's Development to understand the aspirations of women in Singapore and what can be done collectively to empower, protect and uplift them. Coming out of these conversations, it is clear that public and private sector leaders must embrace innovative tools and technology, forward-looking strategies, and partnerships to ensure that women are at the heart of recovery.

The Symposium will begin with a fireside chat with Corinna Lim, Executive Director, The Association for Women for Action and Research (AWARE), and Ai Hua Ong, Head of Government Affairs & Policy, Asia Pacific, Johnson & Johnson followed by small group, heart-to-heart conversations.
