Gender diversity is good for business. It ensures that we infuse our workplaces and teams with diversity of views, styles, experiences and perspectives. It has a positive impact on a company’s performance and propels the organisational culture from average to exceptional. At Accenture, over 80,000 or 35 percent of our workforce are women and providing an environment and culture that empowers women and helping them define success is critical.

Within Accenture, this commitment to help women success starts at the top and it is simply the way we do things within the organisation.
 
However, across many other workplaces there are still barriers for women. BoardAgender’s mission to recognise the growing importance of women talent at work is crucial in breaking down these barriers. As a woman leader and a champion at Boardagender, I feel honoured to be part of a group that is translating beliefs into actions and creating an environment where we help women succeed at the workplace.

The BoardAgender SG50 Champions of Change call on every corporate leader
to make the change for gender-balanced business in Singapore.
