Launch of Women on Board: Making a Real Difference & Presentation of ASEAN Corporate Governance Scorecard 2018

Dear Boardagender Members,
 
The Singapore Institute of Directors (SID) is pleased to invite you to the launch of a new book on board diversity and the unveiling of the ASEAN Corporate Governance Scorecard 2018.
 
SID, in collaboration with BoardAgender and with the support of Accenture, is pleased to produce the publication Women on Board: Making a Real Difference. The book features 24 female directors of diverse backgrounds and highlights their directorship journeys. Attendees will receive a complimentary copy of the publication. 
 
SID is also pleased to partner with the Centre for Governance, Institutions and Organisations (CGIO) at the NUS Business School to present the report of the ASEAN Corporate Governance Scorecard 2018, and results for the top 100 listed companies in Singapore according to the Scorecard.
 
Good corporate governance involves a broad spectrum of policies and measures for boards. A diverse panel of leading practitioners and experts in the field will discuss critical questions in corporate governance excellence:
• How will the enhancements in regulations and guidance, particularly the pending revisions to the Code of Corporate Governance, impact boards and their governance?
• How should corporate leadership put in place best practices embedded in the various components of the ASEAN Corporate Governance Scorecard? 
• How can companies leverage the inherent merits of diversity in leadership, particularly gender diversity, to elevate boardroom decision making?
• How should leaders balance the need for market growth with the imperative of governance controls, especially in relation to business integrity?
 
Our guest-of-honour for the event is Ms. Grace Fu, Minister for Culture, Community and Youth. 
 
Attendees can expect to gain insights from the distinguished set of speakers and panellists on results of the Scorecard and how companies can leverage on the Scorecard, along with board diversity, to maximise their performance.
