Women in Business Group Update - Q1 2017

The final quarter of 2016 and first quarter of 2017 were very exciting quarters for the British Chamber Women in Business Group, with a wide variety of events; many new members; and a new Chairperson.

Chair: Dora Lui, Barclays
 
The final quarter of 2016 was a very exciting one for the British Chamber Women in Business Group, with a wide variety of events; many new members; and a new Chairperson, Dora Lui. Sadly we will also be saying goodbye to two key members: Katharina Lange and Juliet Wolfe. We thank them for their valuable contributions and wish them well in the future.
 
We hosted several well-attended events in the second half of 2016, with topics ranging from unconscious bias in the workplace to developing personal resilience, and are well into the planning stages for 2017 starting with our Demystifying the Board event. Many of us are unaware of the benefits of joining a board, or how to go about it, so we’ve brought together both technical and practical insights designed to demystify the concept of a ‘board’. The Breakfast Club session will feature distinguished speakers Su-Yen Wong from Human Capital Leadership Institute, Mui Hoon Poh from SP Telecom, and Murli Ravi from Unicorn Venture Capital. 
 
The main event in the Women in Business Group’s calendar for 2017 was of course International Women’s Day on the 8th March. The theme for 2017 was Be Bold for Change. And 8 March 2017, the British Chamber of Commerce Women in Business group together with our Diversity sponsor Barclays, celebrated the day with a spectacular panel of speakers - Goh Swee-Chen, Chairman of Shell Companies in Singapore; Liz Corbin, Singapore Bureau Chief of the BBC; Diviya G. K., Singapore Women’s National Cricket Team Captain; Rachel Eng, Deputy Chairman of Wong Partnership; and Guillermo Cabeza, Managing Director and Head of BNC Traded Assets APAC at Barclays Bank PLC. The event was moderated by Hayden Majajas, the Asia Pacific Head of Diversity & Inclusion at Bloomberg.
