SG50 Champions of Change

Jeanette Wong

Group Executive, Institutional Banking Group
DBS Singapore
I believe that organizations that embrace diversity benefit from the ability to attract, groom and retain talent, regardless of race, gender or religion. Women make up 60% of DBS’ 21,000 workforce and account for 30% of our Managing Director population. We need to encourage all effort to increase the likelihood of women operating in C-suite positions and are in senior management positions so that gender parity for women on boards is a given. I am encouraged that BoardAgender has helped elevate gender diversity on boards into a national business agenda and hope to share my personal experience, help raise awareness, change mindsets and attitudes to support the advancement of senior women leaders into the boardroom.
 

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