Championing Gender Diversity in Business

HALF OF SINGAPORE’S POPULATION IS FEMALE, AND YET ONLY A SMALL PERCENTAGE OF THE VAST POOL OF SKILLED WOMEN ARE REPRESENTED IN THE SENIOR RANKS OF CORPORATIONS.

We welcome these women, allies and organisations to engage with us, to build more diverse and gender balanced businesses.

BoardAgender is an initiative of the Singapore Council of Women’s Organisations (SCWO) dedicated to advancing more women into senior leadership roles and boardrooms in Singapore.

Our Vision

We envision a Singapore which has high performing boards resulting from diverse representation, including appropriate gender balance.

Our Mission

We aspire to run innovative, impactful programmes towards education and advocacy to facilitate positive change.
