In celebration of the International Women’s Day 2022, Singapore-based Women Icons Network is hosting the Collective for Equality International Women’s Day 2022 Summit on March 24 & 25, 2022.

The Summit will bring together senior corporate leaders in discussion on their personal experiences and initiatives in improving workplace gender equity. From recognising one’s personal biases to overcoming it and then helping bring about change to stepping forward and becoming an ally – female and male – at work, the summit sessions will effectively be a masterclass of how to be the change agent.

Represented by senior women and men from the corporate world across Asia Pacific the aim is to enhance the level of discussion and try to establish a roadmap.

The Women Icons Summit & Awards have been a platform engaging women and companies in the area of Workplace Gender Equality since 2017.

The 2022 edition will be a virtual session hosted on a highly engaging digital platform.

Collective for Equality Dialogues

Breaking the Bias – Challenging Personal Stereotypes
March 24, 2022

To make real gender diversity progress, you need every piece of the puzzle put in its correct place. You need to start with an organisational culture that supports and celebrates diversity and inclusion and where people feel they can call out bias and challenge stereotypes without fear of retribution. Rather than looking the other way, people need to know they can safely speak up when they see unconscious bias in the workplace. Added to this, you need leaders who understand and champion the business benefits of diversity and inclusion and celebrate any D&I successes.

Allyship and its Role in Pushing the Boundaries on Workplace Equity
March 25, 2022

Allyship is the Key To Unlocking The Power Of Diversity. It is a lifelong process of building relationships based on trust, consistency, and accountability with individuals and/or groups of people who must recognize your contribution and it is also an opportunity to grow and learn about ourselves, whilst building confidence in others.
